Release Notes 1.12.0 - Durst Workflow

With version 1.12.0, users have access to several innovations in the area of variable data, release, assembly and correction of print data. In addition, improvements have been made in the area of editing, managing and outputting print data.

Innovations in version 1.12.0

 * Share portal

As of this version, a release portal is available as a cloud service that communicates with the local workflow. Reports can be generated in the workflow and transferred directly to the release portal.

 * VDP Editor

With the VDP Editor, variable elements can be placed directly in the browser and generated with the help of control information stored in a CSV file. The VDP editor will replace the Adobe Illustrator plug-in.

 * Share Dashboard

This view lists all release reports that have been downloaded locally or sent to the release portal. The status and other information about the individual release reports is displayed.

PDF Editor

A new separation preview has been implemented. The tabs "Analyse" and "Page geometry" - each with specific functions - are available to the user.

Erweiterte Motiv-Einstellungen
Assembly for roll material

The maximum height of the montage used up to now changes automatically from now on if a larger motif is used for the montage. The preferred height from the printer configuration is still used for all motifs that are smaller.

Markierungen für beidseitiges Nesting
Colour Control Stripe and Figurative Marks

In the Montage Editor there is the possibility to add colour control strips, which could be used to verify print standards, and image marks, such as logos.

"Uniform Tiles"

To create uniformly large tiles, you can choose between "Tiles with variable overlap" (current implementation) or "Tiles with fixed overlap".

Neue Marken
180º Rotation

This function can be used, for example, in a hotfolder or quick print to specify whether each even or odd page should be rotated 180º.

Ink cost calculation

Some new functions and enhancements have been implemented in relation to ink cost calculation, so calculations can now be automated and performed for multiple motifs.

Transferring multi-page documents

From this version onwards, you can define in the Send to Printer dialogue which and how many pages of a multi-page document should finally be sent to the printer.

Neue Marken
Routines extension

Two new routines have been added, so it is now possible to set all items and orders marked as deleted to be deleted automatically. This happens based on the settings of the routine.

 Data corrections

  • Add caption
    Adds a caption - the selected text - to the selected margins in the specified position, font, size and colour.
  • Duplicate all pages
    Creates a duplicate of each page of the design on the following page, for which you can specify whether it should be rotated 0° or 180° as well as mirrored horizontally or vertically.
Techkon measuring device

The measuring device from Techkon was integrated. With it, spot colour measurements as well as reprofiling or verification against standards can be used.


Zünd cutter

The option "Create cutting preview" determines whether a preview of the cutting file should be sent to the cutting device. The option "Only technical colours in the cutting preview" determines whether the preview should only contain technical colours or the complete print image.


Data that is not directly on the workflow workstation can be processed with the XML hotfolder. Server paths to the files must be used for this.

DXF-Cut files

From this version onwards it is possible to define in which unit the DXF cutting file should be created.
