VivaPosterize Marks Handling

The handling of marks is a central function of the program which far exceeds the usual functions of other similar programs.

Customer Marks
The user can generate as many of his own marks as he wishes and include them in VivaImpose. Individual marks (company logos, special pull down lays, etc.) are created with the help of illustration programs (e.g. Adobe Illustrator), which can create vector EPS files. Standard marks (such as fold and crop marks) are integrated in the program and can be set according to preference.

Global Marks
With the management of marks, VivaPosterize follows a global concept. If you set a crop mark in a template, this will automatically be changed in all templates if the mark is altered in any way.

Relations
The application of Marks also allows local and global settings to be made. If a mark is to appear on every spread, it is for simplicity and maintenance reasons better to apply this mark to a machine rather than to a template. A mark can therefore be applied to both a template and to a machine.

Mark Sets
In order not to have to define the same marks for every template, VivaPosterize has so-called Mark Sets. These automatically apply the required crop and fold marks to all pages on the template, and also individual marks if required. Since it is not absolutely necessary to define marks in a template, the user can create several mark sets and wait until just before the output to a printer or imaging machine to decide with which mark set the spread should be printed.

Mark Intelligence
The Color Control Strip and Excess Color Strip or Take-off Bar are dynamic marks. They are automatically created from the colors used in the spread. The user can define a preferred position and two alternative positions, and from this definition the program decides automatically where the marks will be placed. If not enough space is available, the marks will wander to the next position, or not be printed.
