Flexi 8.6v2 and PhotoPRINT 6.1v2
Build 1465
23 February, 2009

New Features
•Support multiple contour cuts in order to do a contour cut and a perforation cut on most cutters. Create the contour cut as usual, then create a second contour cut around the first by selecting Effects>Contour Cut again. For the perf cut, you can choose a separate color in order to assign cutting parameters in the RIP and Print dialog, or choose a dashed line style in order to have Flexi automatically leave small segments uncut.
•Two additional colors now appear in the default color swatch: “CutContour” and “PerfCutContour”. EPS export will retain the colorname of any contour cut paths with “PerfCutContour” color. Other contour cut colors will be merged into “CutContour” on export.
•Added custom line styles in the style menu of Contour Cut and in the style menu of the stroke tab of Fill/Stroke Editor. Choose "Edit..." from the style list in order to create new line styles or to edit or delete an existing custom style. Default styles cannot be modified.
•Cut/Plot and RIP and Print now show icons rather than text in the tabs.
•RIP and Print>Advanced>Contour Cut has been moved to a separate tab (RIP and Print>Contour Cut). You can now see all color layers and assign separate cutting parameters for each.

Limitations / Known Problems
•Printing CMYKRGB targets from 3rd party profiles may overink.  Use the SAi Color Profiler for optimal results with multi channel profiles.
•ICC profiles with ink split created in v2 will not give good results when used in previous versions.  V2 profiles store extra parameters for smoothing that previous versions will not be able to interpret.
•When you first plug a GX cutter into the PC, it will prompt you with “Found New Hardware…”. If you skip that, you can still cut by using the USB_Printer_0 port in PhotoPRINT, but that OS port does not support poll size. In order for poll size to work, you must install the driver from the GX CD that comes with the cutter, then select the Roland USB0002 port.
•When the 9000s is attached to the PC, it may prompt you with "Found New Hardware". The necessary Windows USB driver files for this printer can be found on the installation CD in the Util\HP DesignJet 9000s USB driver folder
•Windows Vista - SCSI does not currently work on Windows Vista. You may find that many device drivers are not yet supported in Vista, such as devices requiring their own USB drivers.
•A networked Production Manager is not possible with softkey.
•When creating a profile using light inks and some print mode/media combinations you may find that too much ink is laid down. To correct this lower the total ink setting on the last step on profile generation. This happens most often on printers with more than 6 inks.
•The gray balance step in the Color Profiler may produce undesirable results under some ink/media combinations. This feature is best used when printing grayscale images.
•Profiling for the RGB mode of the HP Z-series printers will not work correctly although CMYKRGB works correctly.
•Fotoba and Fotoba Horizontal Marks don’t print on the HP Z3100.
•Dual Roll does not properly support crop marks when set to "one set for all".
•When you first plug a GX cutter into the PC, it will prompt you with “Found New Hardware…”. If you skip that, you can still cut by using the USB_Printer_0 port in Production Manager, but that OS port does not support poll size. In order for poll size to work, you must install the driver from the GX CD that comes with the cutter, then select the Roland USB0002 port.
•Roland GX cutters will not polls size or read contour cut registration marks on Windows Vista 64-bit systems. It will function correctly on Windows Vista 32-bit systems and other Windows operating systems. At the moment, Roland has not developed a Vista 64-bit USB driver for the GX cutters.
•When the 9000s is attached to the PC, it may prompt you with "Found New Hardware". The necessary Windows USB driver files for this printer can be found on the installation DVD in the Util\HP DesignJet 9000s USB driver folder.
•Some transparent bitmaps do not preview correctly in the General tab of RIP and Print. All other tabs and output is not effected.
•Some default media names for the HP Z-series printers contain a "/". This causes a failure to create new ICC error messages for these media types. In order to successfully generate an ICC, you will need to rename the media in the Profile Setup tab of Color Profiler.
•There is an issue importing HPGL/2 files with ".HP2" extension. Rename the file to ".PLT" to properly import into Flexi.
•Output may be slow when using a TCP/IP to LPT adapter using an SEH print server. To eliminate pausing, turn on "Fast Mode" from Printer Server>Homepage>configuration>Print Port.
•Windows 2000 requires 128-bit encryption be installed, or you will not be able to install the software. If you have only 56-bit encryption, download the High Encryption Pack from Microsoft at http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/downloads/recommended/encryption/en.mspx or on the CD at \Util\Windows 2000 High Encryption Pack \ENCPACK.EXE
•Canon imagePROGRAF printers do not allow new media to be added to the list. If you are creating a new profile, choose an existing media and enter your media in the "Media Display Name" field. This is required because the printer needs to know the base media in order to setup printing parameters such as number of passes.
•Object Color Control will not work for spot color unless "Use color mapping" in unchecked.

FlexiFAMILY 8.6v1
Build 1428
October 9, 2008
English, Portuguese, French, German, Italian, Spanish release

New Features
•SpotON diffusion added. This diffusion is the default for all newly created profiles. It virtually eliminates banding and produces vibrant, accurate output which far exceeds any other method. To take full advantage of SpotON, you need to create a new ICC profile. SpotON is able to produce perfectly smooth gradients by utilizing 16bit linearization. When using SpotON, object color control settings will not be accurate when using device space. RIP speed of SpotOn is about 4 times faster than Error Diffusion (a bit slower than FMXpress) but with greatly improved output.
•Object color control and spot color mapping with SpotON diffusion does not allow light ink values to be set. The light ink is automatically calculated based on the ink split curve.
•3 level 2 bit dithering support for HP DesignJet 5100 using SpotON diffusion.
•Send to VersaWorks option added to the file menu and to standard toolbar to automatically add the current design to the VersaWorks queue. This command will be hidden if VersaWorks is not installed. Use \Program\Add RVW.reg to manually update the registry key if needed.
•Help>Check for Updates is a new method to check for software updates. Newly created updates will show on the web page. Simply click to download and install them. Check periodically for any updates.

•Basic Job Properties - An efficient way to set all essential parameters in a single dialog box without having to page though each tab of job properties. To change the view to full job properties, click on the advanced job properties button at the left side of the dialog.
•Duplicate Setup - An existing setup can be duplicated with the same manufacturer, model and port. This is useful when adding setups each with different default job properties in order to customize the workflow. Click on the setup in the left pane of Production Manager to duplicate.
•Output Validation - Hewlett Packard Z2000 and Z3100 drivers support output validation. This feature will print a confidence strip that can be compared to an initial reading to report when the colors stray due to banding, media changes, or environmental changes. The strip will be automatically printed and measured, and you can select the alert level. The printer must be connected via USB or TCP/IP in order to use this command.
•Open Job Properties - Option added to add job dialog to immediately edit the file in job properties.
•Immediate access to Job Properties - Job Properties can now be opened immediately while the preview is still loading. Some options such as driver options can be change without the preview. Options such as media size are dimmed.

•Changing copy spacing will now reset the nesting so that the spacing can be applied.

Color Profiler
•The color profiler has been completely redesigned in order to optimize the workflow of creating a new ICC profile.
•Color profiles no longer have a separate TRC linearization table. The linearization data is now stored in the ICC profile.
•Gray balance can now be measured and compensated for.
•ICC profiles can now be stored in either ICC version 2.1 or 4.0 format.
•Flexi 7.x and 8.x profiles and presets are not compatible with 8.5. They need to be converted to the new format in order to be used. Flexi 7.x and 8.x presets can be converted and used, and other ICC profiles can be imported as measurement data. There is a button in the color profiler welcome page that steps you though this process.
•Barbieri now supports fast scan mode.
•Ink limit test target has been changed to make it easier to find the point of ink bleeding.
•Linearization now prints additional swatches at the highlights and shadows in order to improve output smoothness.
•The profiler wizard can be stopped and resumed after any stage, and even put in the background in order to continue using Production Manager.
•Full support has been added for N-color devices such as devices that print CMYKRGB plus light inks. ICC profiles can now be created for these new color modes.
•Spot color rendering intent is no longer supported. Use Saturation intent as a substitute to get the most vibrant prints.
•Added support for X-Rite Eye-one on 64bit OSes.
•New media can only be added in the color profiler. Job properties only allows media selection.
•Multiple profiles can now be added in Job Properties by selecting add from the output profile combo.
•Pure Hue option has been removed. It is now always enabled.
•Custom Color Mapping has been removed from setup menu and placed in the Color Management tab of Job Properties so that it can be stored with the preset.
•Support added for X-Rite ISIS colorimeter.
•Support added for HP Z2100, Z3100 and Z6100 as colorimeters.

•New Hermes and Gravograph drivers now include driver option "Pause before engraving".
•New Hermes: Dwell time setting is now sent to the device.

Roland GX cutters
•The GX cutter will no longer need to be in Rotate 90 mode in order to cut. You can set the cutter to Rotate 0 (the default hardware setting) and it will now work for both regular cutting and contour cutting.
•Poll size no longer swaps material width and height.
•When opening the Cut/Plot dialog box, we now show the preview at the lower left corner with zero offset. Dragging it to the right will increase the offset amount. This is behavior similar to Cut Studio.
•Contour cut marks design has been tweaked so that there are no longer a series of arrows at the end of the print. Instead, the first mark is indicated with a small arrow to indicate where to position the cutter before starting the mark detection.
•All 4 marks are now detected for better accuracy. The current release detects only 3 marks which could lead to some inaccuracies.
•Contour cut can now be up to the maximum of 1.5M instead of 762cm because we no longer require the print job to be loaded into the cutter sideways. That removes the software limitation and allows us to cut to the full length supported on the hardware.

•Braille now supports Text>Break Apart.
•Text>Justification>Full now as a "Compression only" option to compress text to fix when adjust is set to "Character Width" or "Character Size". A related option "Apply equal compression to all lines" will calculate the compression needed for the longest line of the text block, and apply the same compression to all lines.

Auto Serialization Usage
•Apply toolpaths before using auto serialization. This way, you don't have to fill each resulting nametag.

There are two ways to output a set of auto serialized nametags.

1. Output on a single sheet of substrate, and add cut lines to cut each one apart. For this method, turn on "Cut lines between copies" in the engrave dialog. Set the material size to match the sheet size. If there are more nametags than can fit on a single sheet, you will be prompted to insert another sheet. Cut lines between copies will not work on auto serialized objects if they are converted to outlines or removed from the serialization group.

2. Output on pre-cut nametags, and insert a new one in after each one is cut. For this method, set the material size to match a single nametag. You will be prompted to insert another sheet for each nametag. Detection of each individual nametag will not work on auto serialized objects if they are converted to outlines or removed from the serialization group.
