New Aleyant eDocBuilder™ Release Now Available

Support Added for Multi-Page Background Colors for Interactive Designer Templates

Prior to this release, you could assign different sets of background images to each of the pages in your template, but when it came to selecting a background color, the choice you made applied to all pages in your template. With this update, they both work the same way. You can now decide for each page in your template what (if any) background images or colors you would like to have available to your customer while customizing the template. One page may have no background options available, another might have two specific image options, while another might have other images along with solid background colors. See images below:


In the image above, you can see that Background Page Options now applies to both images and color options. You can either apply the choices made to All Pages, or select each page and decide exactly which image or colors can be used on that specific page.

Above: For page 1 of our template, the customer is selecting a blue background and then on page 4 they’ve selected magenta while leaving all other pages without a background color.

What’s Holding Your Print Business Back?


As seen recently on whattheythink.com, Jennifer Matt shares the number one thing that holds print businesses back – fear. This software won’t work for our print business — a conclusion that can be the result of weeks’, months’, even years’ worth of time and money. Nobody wins in this outcome.

Latest Aleyant Pressero™ and eDocBuilder™ Releases Now Available


Downloading a Proof PDF on Form-Based Templates
You can now download a PDF Proof while customizing a Form-Based Template. This feature was previously only available on Interactive Designer templates and within the Pressero storefront. To set this up, select the option “Allow Downloading Proof PDF” which is found on the “Template Info” tab when setting up the template in eDocBuilder. This option will become available to your customer after completing the required fields and Updating Preview. Note: If you plan to use this option, we highly recommend that you also add Preview Watermark Text in the Template Info tab as the proof the user downloads will be the same resolution as your production file. The Preview Watermark will put a translucent text block on the proof PDF that the customer downloads. Select here for ways to make proofs available to your customers through eDocBuilder and Pressero.

Update to the InDesign Plugin and Support for InDesign 2018 Now Available
On February 15, 2018 we released version 1.2.8 of the InDesign Plugin for eDocBuilder.

These changes were made to the current and all previous versions of the plugin. In addition to the updates, we also released the plugins for both Mac and Windows version of InDesign 2018. For more information, and to download the plugins, visit this page of our documentation.


Amazon Added to Single Sign-On Options Available in Pressero Storefronts
As most of you are already aware, Pressero supports Single Sign-On (SSO) allowing your customer to use one set of login credentials (e.g., name and password) to access their storefronts. With this last release we have now added Amazon to the list of available Open Authorization (OAuth) methods available. For more information, please refer to our documentation.

A New Version of AWI is Available
AWI Installer Downloads (updated 2/21/2018) are now available. It is highly suggested that you keep your version of AWI up-to-date to avoid any problems and to take advantage of bug fixes and feature updates. Select here to download the latest installer downloads.

Detail Tab Added to Pressero Admin > Orders
We added a new “Details” tab to the order area when you select the edit option for an order. You will now immediately see the most important information about the order without having to tab through all the various areas to gather that information. The additional tabs can be used for editing the order and not necessarily to gather the information for the order. See image below.
