Editing Jobs in the Browser Version of TotalFlow Prep

You can launch the browser version of TotalFlow Prep from TotalFlow Production Manager or from TotalFlow Print Server. After you finish editing the job, you can save it and submit it back to TotalFlow Production Manager or TotalFlow Print Server.
    Important:
  • Some functions of TotalFlow Prep are not available in the browser version.
  • TotalFlow Production Manager must be installed on the same computer as TotalFlow Prep.
  • When you edit a job from TotalFlow Production Manager, certain settings are applied to the PDF file and are not reflected in the JDF job ticket. For example, if four pages are imposed on a sheet, a 4-up PDF file is created and 1-up is specified in the JDF ticket. As a result, when you view the job in TotalFlow Production Manager or when you edit the job again in the browser version of TotalFlow Prep, the settings appear in the PDF file, but not in the job properties.
