Lightbulb Preps 6.3 released!

Hi all,
We are happy to announce that Preps 6.3 is released. You can find the installer via Partner Place/Service Knowledge Vault.

Installers for Macintosh & Windows
https://services.knowledge.en.kodak....ail/a_id/40887

New features include layout dimensions showing in the Job Layout Report, new keyboard shortcuts, and ability to use duplicate page numbers when creating a custom fold pattern. Please see the Release notes for the list of bug fixes.

Note: The update is with a full installer (there are no updater at this time). If a previous installation already exists, it is a good idea to retain it in a backup folder, and then use the Migration Utility to carry forward any previous configurations.

Preps 6.3 is available as a free, customer installable upgrade for customers running Preps 6.x.

Default Re: Preps 6.3 released!

I have been putting Preps 6.3 through its paces, and, so far, it seems extremely stable (Mac OS X 10.8.2).

The dimensions on the reports are extremely useful and could serve as a backup record for a particular layout. Unless I'm misreading something, however, there are a couple of problems:

1) The only dimensions given are for the sheet, not for the media and it would be useful to have that included.

2) The outermost dimension lines on the layout drawings are incorrect: The measurements attached to them are those of the sheet, while the lines themselves extend to the edges of the media, while, again, the size of the media is nowhere to be seen.

Still, a solid update.

A couple of things:

1) The URL given in the announcement takes Gentle Reader to

https://services.knowledge.en.kodak....ls/login_form/

not to the update page.

2) I can't find any update notes for 6.3.

Thanks.

I agree the dimensions on the reports are extremely useful, the only issue that I have been trying to solve. Is when using the step and repeat tool for flat work. There are no dimensions on the report.
