Additional Known limitations
When you use "Odd" or "Even" keywords in the SmartMark Range field, the mark will be applied only for the first press run.
This happens for all marks when the mark anchor is anything except Gutter. See Common settings for SmartMarks.
t: before the Range keyword. For example,
If you add a new sheet while in template editing mode, you will no longer be in template editing mode.
You can still save as template. If you duplicate an existing press run you will remain in template editing mode.
When adding press runs to a job from a template, you cannot rename a signature after it has been edited.
Once you save the job for the first time you will be able to edit the name of a signature.
