This dialog box has two names. The name is Set Job Attributes when you are creating a new job or pre-job or Edit Job Attributes when you are changing an existing job or pre-job.

ColorFlow

ColorFlow simplifies the process of setting up color and ensuring that jobs are processed using correct color settings.

Default Snapshot

The Default Snapshot option defines which collection of color control elements (curves, device profiles, and DeviceLink profiles) are referenced to match a common target on all the reproduction devices.
Select the Approved snapshot—a previous snapshot, or the Current State, which reflects the latest edits done within ColorFlow.

Job Color Setup

Select a color setup for the job.

A color setup is a collection of several device conditions and the color control elements (curves, device profiles, and DeviceLink profiles) that are required to match a common target on all the reproduction devices.

When you refine a job's pages using a refine process template in which ColorFlow settings are enabled, the color setup that is assigned to the refined pages is either the color setup specified in the refine process template or the default color setup for the job, depending on how the refine process template is configured.

For more information about ColorFlow, see Using ColorFlow software.

RIP Options

RIP Name

Select Adobe PDF Print Engine or Adobe CPSI to choose the RIP for the job. Adobe PDF Print Engine is the default RIP.

Final Output Handling When RIP is Different

Select Fail or Warn to indicate how you want final output handled when the RIP is different.

For example if you submit a job that contains a PostScript object that the RIP cannot process, you could set this option to Fail to indicate that an operator needs to remake any proofs that have been made using that RIP.

Match Acrobat Rendering

Select this check box if you want the Adobe PDF Print Engine RIP to generate output that matches Acrobat's onscreen rendering. Clear this check box for legacy rendering from Prinergy versions prior to Prinergy 5.3.

When the Match Acrobat Rendering check box is selected, the APPE Rips output of strokes will render as fills (matching Acrobat). Having this setting selected may resolve cases where miters do not match Acrobat. When the check box is cleared, thin lines may render closer to CPSI or legacy APPE output.

When transparency is on a PDF page strokes may still render as fills regardless of the Match Acrobat Rendering check box being cleared. To force strokes that are not part of a transparency stack to remain as strokes, select the new Prinergy 8.2 Preserve non-transparent Strokes check box.

Preserve non-transparent Strokes

Select this checkbox to avoid strokes converting to fills when transparency is on the page. When this check box is selected, the Match Acrobat Rendering check box is cleared and unavailable. The default value of this setting is cleared (OFF) to match legacy behavior and increase predictably.

Limitation: If a stroke line is part of a transparency stack it will always convert to a fill (regardless of this setting). In turn if you have two lines of the exact thickness where one is part of a transparent stack and the other is not and you select the Preserve non-transparent Strokes check box, the lines could have slightly different thickness on output.

Regional Versioning

Regular Job

Select this option if the job is a regular job and versioning is not required.

Layered PDF Versioning (LPV) Job

For information about Layered PDF Versioning, see the Versioning chapter in this guide.

Legacy Versioning Job

Select this option if you are using the original Prinergy system to create multiple versions of a publication. This versioning system requires multiple imposition plans and the manipulation of color separations.
For more information, see the Prinergy Regional Versioning User Guide.

Max Layers

The maximum number of pages that you can assign to one page position. This information is set in the Edit Job Attributes dialog box and only applies to legacy versioning jobs.

Due Date Time

Proof

The date and time when proofs for the job are due. This date is exported with a job.

Click Edit next to this option to display the Proof Due Date dialog box, which you use to enter the month, day, year, and time when the proofs are due.

Click Clear next to this option to delete the previously entered due date.

The computer's operating system controls date and time formats.

Final Output

The date and time when the final output for the job is due. This date is exported with a job. This date also appears in Prepress Portal.

Click Edit next to this option to display the Output Due Date dialog box, which you use to enter the month, day, year, and time when the final output is due.

Click Clear next to this option to delete the previously entered due date.

The computer's operating system controls date and time formats.

Miscellaneous

Job Alias

The alias of jobs in your system. For systems where the job name is a number, the job alias provides the meaningful job name. Job Alias corresponds to Job Description in InSite Prepress Portal. If you change the job alias in Prinergy, the job description in InSite Prepress Portal is changed.

Job Code

A job code that you specify. The job code can be anything that is meaningful to you or to your customer.
The job code is:

  • Available to an imposition job ticket
  • Available as a variable mark on the job's output
  • Exported with a job
  • Included in CIP3 files when Prinergy generates CIP3 files during final output

The job code also appears in Prepress Portal, if the job is enabled for Web access through Prepress Portal. If you change the job code in Prinergy, the job code in PrePress Portal is changed.

Job Status

The status of the job. When a job is created, its status is set to In Prepress.
You can change a job's status in the Edit Job Attributes dialog box. The following statuses are available:

  • Created
  • In Prepress
  • On Press
  • Shipped
  • Completed
  • Ready for Final Output
  • Completed Final Output

If the job is enabled for Web access through Prepress Portal, the following additional statuses are available:

  • In Cart
  • Pending Order Approval
  • Order Requested
  • Order Accepted
  • Order Rejected

Select Enable Press Side Proofing if the workflow includes the Kodak PressProof software.

APA behavior on RIP

This job attribute is available when you use Automated Page Assignment (APA) and create CT/LW jobs.
This job attribute determines how to resolve any conflicts between the page position assignments specified in the APA file and pages that have been previously assigned to a position in Prinergy Workshop.
When you refine a page, Prinergy looks in the Automated Page Assignment (APA) file to determine its page set position and then automatically assigns it to this position. There are times, however, when there may already be a page assigned to that page set position. When Prinergy encounters this conflict, it needs to determine which of the following actions to take:

    • Retain the page currently assigned to this position and leave the newly refined page as unassigned.
    • Assign the newly refined page to the page position specified in the APA file and unassign the page currently assigned to this position.

The APA behavior on RIP attribute enables you to choose how Prinergy handles page assignment conflicts when it re-refines a page in this job. Select:

    • Retain Assignments to retain the page currently assigned to the position specified in APA file, and leave the re-refined page as unassigned.
    • Overwrite Assignments to assign the refined page to the position specified in the APA file, overwriting the existing page assignment. The page that is currently assigned to this position then becomes unassigned.
    • None to disregard the APA file entirely. This means that a re-refined page that has never been assigned stays unassigned; and a re-refined page that has been assigned stays in its assigned position.

This job attribute overrides the default APA behavior for new jobs which is set in Prinergy Administration. For information on how to set default APA behavior for new jobs, see the Prinergy System Administration Guide.

Note: The job's APA files are stored in the <Job>/Control folder. If there is more than one APA file, for example, Job.apa and Job.v1.apa, Prinergy looks at the APA file with the latest date and time. It does not refer to the version number in the file name.

Web Access

Enable Web Access

Allows the selected customer to view the job in Prepress Portal.
When you select the Enable Web Access check box, the Select Web Access Customer dialog box appears. Select the customer for whom you want to allow Web access for the job.

Customer

Lists the customer whose name you selected when you enabled Web access to the job.
