Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0159696A2] In the production of variable documents, front end software is utilized in a method and apparatus that have a number of advantages in viewing and aiding in the configuration of a variable print job. Variable data is defined in the PDF format which enables variable content to be created and stored above static content. The user can model data bases, position frames, set properties, store states, combine states with logic, and preview merge content. Pages may be repositioned on press sheets specific to supported plant devices, including particular imaging devices. A document may be saved as a .ps file and converted to a .pdf layout. The .pdf layout may then be opened to add at least one of variable paragraphs, variable tags, and variable resources (such as TIFF images, PDF images, and entire PDF pages), and also opened to create an imposition file. A different imposition file can be created from the same .pdf layout so as to image the variable document with different imaging devices.
