Control whether old revisions of page files remain in the job folder when you generate new pages by re-refining input files.
You need old revisions of page files to compare pages in Kodak InSite Prepress Portal 5.0 or later. If your system does not include the Prepress Portal system, do not keep any revisioned pages.

  1. From the Tools menu, select Configure System.
  2. Click the Job Creation Defaults tab.
  3. In the Max Revisioned Pages To Retain box, type a number that indicates how many previous revisions you can view InSite Prepress Portal.
    With Prepress Portal, the recommended value is from 3 to 5. Otherwise, the recommended value is 0. The maximum value is 99.
    Important: Higher values consume more disk space because the job folder stores multiple copies of page files.

If this box is set to 0, Prinergy overwrites the PDF page files in the job folder each time you re-refine an input file. If this box is set to a value greater than 0, Prinergy keeps old revisions of PDF page files by renaming them in the format file.p1.revN.pdf, where N represents the revision number. Previous revisions are located in the System\SubPagesRevisioned folder.


Example of keeping three previous revisions

For example, here's what happens when Max Revisioned Pages to Retain is 3 and you repeatedly refine a one-page input file named file.ps:
