Use the template palette to drag input files from your work folders onto a process template for processing.
Important: The Prinergy Evo server computer must have read, write, and modify privileges on the folder from which you submit input files to Prinergy Evo software. It is a best practice to place your input files in the shared JobData folder on the Prinergy Evo server computer and you mount the folder from your Prinergy Evo client computer.

To create a template palette, from the Window menu, select New Template Palette to open the template palette.

To customize the template palette, select Window > Template Browser to open the Template Browser dialog box.

Once configured, you can access your template palettes from the Window menu, Template Palettes option. You can edit the list of template palettes, from the Edit Palette Windows dialog box.

Template Palettes

Displays a list of template palettes.

To edit the list, select Edit This List, and in the Edit Palette window add or delete Template Palettes. 

Once configured, a template palette enables you to drag files from mounted volumes on the Prinergy Evo client computer to the template palette for processing. Note that the Prinergy Evo server computer must be able to access the working folders that store input files. Otherwise, you will not be allowed to process input files. For example, files in the Prinergy Evo server computer JobData folder are accessible, but files on the desktop of the Prinergy Evo client computer are not. When you drag an input file onto the template palette, the system processes the input file based on the parameters specified in the selected process template.

After processing, Prinergy Evo software saves the output file to the same folder as the input file. If you want the output file saved to another folder, you must specify the alternate location in the selected process template. If there is an existing file, the system overwrites it, unless the source PostScript or PDF will be overwritten. If the source file will be overwritten, the system renames the output file to prevent overwriting. For example, if you refine a file called cover.ps, the system outputs cover.pdf in the same directory. If you then refine cover.pdf, the system creates cover<new>.pdf to prevent cover.pdf from being overwritten.

A template palette can contain one or many different processing templates. However, you must drag input files onto each template palette icon separately in order to process the file based on each process template's parameters. There is no connected workflow between process templates in the template palette unless you configured each process template to be connected by hot folders. For example, if you configure your template palette with a refine to PDF process template and an output process template, the Template Palette dialog box appears with two icons, one for the refine to PDF process template and one for the output process template. You must drag your input file onto the refine to PDF process template first to refine the file and create a PDF. Then, you can drag the PDF file onto the output process template icon. 

You can also click the template palette to open the Process Start dialog box in order to browse to add files, remove incorrect files, drag new files, or change the process template that you want to process the files with. You cannot edit the process template parameters from the Process Start dialog box.
