Screen Trueflow – scaling / shingling
The Trueflow workflow from Screen only supports page shingling (creep) as a page ‘move’ and not via ‘scaling’. Any imported impositions using the AutoJDF function or the underlying Open Imposition Interface will fail on conversion if page scaling is detected.
Recovering the Shared Network Content Folders
Metrix 2012.0 removed the need for most users to use the Shared Network Content Folders area of the Database/Conventions. In the rare situation that a user does in fact need to regain access to this functionality, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Behavior of Fold F8-4 has been changed
Prior to Metrix 2012.0 Fold F8-4 was only automatically adjusting one of the outside panel widths in a project, based on the Roll Fold Clearance value in the Database Conventions. This has been resolved, but please note that when old projects are opened that contain products using F8-4 it will require some manual intervention to adopt the new behavior. Please view this movie for an explanation.
