  • Need Onyx Help

    Okay, I'm trying to rip a file with cutcontours. I have the file (eps) with a second layer. The second layer has a stroke in pure magenta and at .25 width, tracing the required cut path for the plotter. However when I rip them in Onyx all three files give me an error in the console. "RefID 74d4730c! = RefID 000000001".

    It kicks out the projects and doesn't give me it in the que or anywheres. I have experienced this in the past and Onyx tech had never heard of it, in other words, they were just as helpful as always. (read:not helpful). I have utilized CutContour and it has worked in the past.

    Can any of you large format printers or prepress guys help out a fellow?

    Never mind. The gd gave me an rgb formatted pic and onyx needs it to be CMYK, apparently...

        wow, i think i did figure it out. I turned on the marks, print info before I submitted it. I had those on, since this is a color test. However when I didn't turn on the print info, it RIPPED just fine. And I was able to add those marks afterwards with no problems.

          What version of Onyx are you using?

            It seems that if I submit the artwork and turn on the crop marks and info before I submit it fails, but if I do it after, it's fine. Strange bug, that even Onyx has never heard of.

                    I am wondering if there is a setting or plug-in in Indesign or acrobat in which I can automatically place/show the Pantones I used in my design. Right now I have to draw out boxes and label the Pantones...

                    I think you'd do better to put a smily face in one of the circular letter forms, as that would at least emphasize commitment to 'nice'.

                    If the logo is not what you had in mind, why do you show it here?
                    If you are working with a crowdsource, let that be a lesson to you.

                    I'd say there are three big issues that leap out to me.

                    1. Navigating is really difficult - I just have to guess where to click and it takes me to a page, though I'm not often sure where...
