Retention of original spot colors from mapping in Pandora or PLA when layouts are sent to Prinergy Workshop [PANDORA-1479]
This ability is off by default. If you want Pandora or PLA to retain the original spot colors from mapping when viewed in Prinergy Workshop under Color Separations, you need to add
AutoColorMap.PrintMappedColor=true to the
DefaultUser.properties file in the Pandora application folder. For PLA, the
DefaultUser.properties file is found in the
LayoutAutomation\server\WEB-INF\classes folder on your Prinergy server. If you are running the PLASubService software, you need to add this parameter to each Prinergy Workflow secondary server in addition to adding it on your Prinergy server running PLA software.
Note: If you are using
AutoColorMap.PrintMappedColor=true and are also using Label Marks, you need to add Mediator.UseNative=false to the
DefaultUser.properties file in order for the Label Marks to appear properly on output.
Improve performance of the Add InSite Files browser window (PLA-5001)
If you want to further improve performance on accessing elements from ICW, you need to add
Insite.ReadFromCache=true to the
DefaultUser.properties file in the
LayoutAutomation\server\WEB-INF\classes folder on your Prinergy server and any Prinergy Workflow secondary servers running the PLASubService.
Show only the latest revision of an element when browsing ICW Projects and Libraries [PLA-5002]
If you want PLA to show only the latest revision of an element in the Add InSite Files window, you need to enable Only show the latest revision under Add InSite Files Window section on the Configuration tab in System Preferences of your PLA Manager client.
The Multiple Die feature requires that each die has a separate name [PLA-4940]
Unlike Pandora, which will allow you to add the same named die to the layout more than once, PLA requires that each die have a separate unique name.
Die Waste and Split Color Bar marks do not get placed to more than one die [PLA-4961]
When you add multiple CF2 files to your layouts, the Die Waste and Split Color Bar marks will be applied to only to the first die station. The other die stations do not get these marks applied.. This functionality will be implemented in a future version.
Validation rules for Multi Die Width and Height [PLA-4963]
When you add multiple CF2 files to your layouts, there are no current validation rules that can be used to verify that the dies will fit on a fixed substrate size. This functionality will be implemented in a future version.
