Respect Mac Filenames

Select to shorten Prinergy file names to 31 characters or less, because Macintosh file names are restricted to a length of 31 characters.

For imposition output and final output, the Prinergy file name consists of:

    • 18 characters for the job name and imposition name (including periods)
    • 13 characters for surface, version, and color extensions (including the periods that separate each item)

For example, jobname.imposname.1A.vers.M.VPS
When you select this check box, Prinergy shortens the first part of the file name. You specify the maximum number of characters for the job name in the Maximum Characters From Job Name box. You specify the maximum number of characters for the imposition name in the From Imposition Plan Name box. 
When the Respect Mac Filenames check box is selected, spot colors are represented in the file name by an index number.
When the Respect Mac Filenames check box is cleared, the full spot color name is added to the output file name, with the word PANTONE abbreviated to PMS, and the CVC or CV suffix removed.

Overwrite Existing Files with Same Name

Select if you want to use the newer files when multiple files have the same name.
Available when Job-Relative File is selected in the Output Type box.
