Is it possible to select inks of a particular printing method for a SmartMark?


It is possible to have any SmartMark that allows for the selection of custom inks to use only inks of a specified printing method. This is done by selecting inks by attributes and then creating a filter that selects based on the printing method. The process is as follows:

  1. Open the SmartMark and go to the Inks tab.
  2. Choose Custom Inks from the Ink drop-down menu.
  3. Click Select Inks.
  4. Choose to Select Inks by Attribute.
  5. Click the right arrow next to the AttributesFilter drop-down and select New Filter.
  6. Name the filter.
  7. Select Printing Method - Equals - then choose the desired printing method from the drop-down.
  8. The Result list will show which inks in the file which will be used with the current settings.
  9. Save the filter.

It is possible to add new Printing Methods in Automation Engine Pilot in the menu Tools > Configure > Printing Methods.
