Configuration
2.1. DynaStrip configuration
1. Share or mount a location where you want to save the JDF file. Make sure that it is
accessible by the :ApogeeX server.
Note: on Macintosh OSX you can use SMB or AFP to mount the volume.
2. DynaStrip makes it easy to create jobs because you can save all different settings
(signature, pagination template, job description, signature definition, page definitions, etc.)
in different libraries. The default location to save all settings is the �Documents’ folder of
the user that is logged on. Therefore, it is advisable to specify a location where you keep all
the custom libraries in different subfolders.
Note: This folder structure is used in this document.
2.2. :ApogeeX configuration
No configuration settings are required with :ApogeeX Commercial or :ApogeeX Packaging.
Make sure that you have a license to import/process JDF files.
To import JDF files you need to create following flow:
The Impose TP should be set to �From Input’

Job creation in DynaStrip
3.1. Technical Terms
A �Job’ contains all settings for a specific job and can be saved in the �Jobs’ folder.
One of the settings in a job is the �DynaMo Job Profile’ which can be saved in the �DynaMo
Job Profiles’ Library. A �DynaMo Job Profile’ contains all the layout settings, including the
pagination sequence that can be re-used as a template in �DynaMo QuickLayout’ module.
A job has an amount of sheets which can be saved in the �Sheet Definition’ Library.
On each sheet you can place a Signature and/or Pages which can be saved respectively in
the �Signature Definition’ and �Page Definition’ Library.
You can also place marks on each sheet which can be saved in the �Marks Definition’
Library.
When you created a complete job with sheets, pagination and bottling/fanning
information, you can save this information into different templates. The job, sheets,
pagination ad bottling/fanning information can be saved in the different �Template’ folders.

3.3. Editing a Job
When you want to edit a job there are 3 parts in this main window. The �Tasks’ in the
taskbar on the top, the �Objects’ selectable by clicking on the Object icon and the �Actions’

:ApogeeX – Third Party Imposition –March 2006
2. Actions
The behavior of the Action buttons is depending on the �Object’ that you have selected and
the �Action’ that you want to do.
Some buttons only contain �Settings’ (not really an action) and other buttons contain a real
�Action’. This latter we can split up in buttons that need a click on the object in the �Design
window’ and others have a pop up window to change their settings.
You will notice that it takes some time before you can work effectively with these buttons.
To make it easier we made a summary of the most important buttons:
this button contains the settings of an �Object’ that you can add with
.
is used to remove an �Object’ and with this button you can edit an �Object’
.
and
are used to move an �Object’ from a certain point or with specific values.
and
are used to rotate an �Object’ with 90° or arbitrary.
is used to modify the gutter and to prevent creep on a page you can use

.

are used to Save/Load a Sheet Template [Sheet Templates folder]
and
and
are used to Save/Load a Pagination Template [Pagination Templates folder]
and
are used to Save/Load a Bottling and Fanning Template [Bottling_Fanning

Note: Icons with a shadow like move and rotate will change the page only (without page
marks).

Click the �Add’ button in the �Documents’ section. Browse to the content files you want

4. Choose the �JDF Options’.
- It is highly recommended to output the JDF file according to the settings in this
screenshot. In this way the JDF file and the content/mark files are created according to the
CIP4 functional specification.

then you NEED to use the content files from an �AFP’ mounted volume. It is NOT possible to
use �Absolute’ on Macintosh OSX with ApogeeX.

7. Click on �Save as default’ and �Print’.
8. Now you should be able to import these JDF files via the �JDFImport’ Hot Ticket.
Note: DynaStrip generates at the root a �JDF’ file and a folder containing the �_MARKS.pdf’
file and the �content files’.
