Re: Forms Design



fixed

I work in a shop which has a long history of InfoPrint Designer.
IBM sold (or in some way transferred the InfoPrint Solutions Co to Ricoh in 2010
http://www.itjungle.com/fhs/fhs071310-story07.html

We use it as well as some DDS generated forms using afpds.
We will be migrating so something else in future.
It would matter if you have many forms already in InfoPrint to migrate.
The InfoPrint may design on pc but all the printing stuff is
on the i. Many current forms packages (not all) do the printing from a
Win server - and that can be an issue if you don't have that
infrastructure and win-techs to keep it going ( i gripe because we
also have a local lan win print server and it is less than reliable for a
moderate volume production environment).
There are vendors that can "assimilate" your InfoPrint
definitions, so don't assume you have to rebuild it all.
But do pay attention to the details on the print side - some just stare
glassy eyed when you mention a restart on page 502 of a duplex report..

Subject: Forms Design


I'm looking for information on forms design software. InfoPrint
Designer / InfoPrint Server is installed but no one on staff has ever
used it and I haven't been able to find anyplace to get training.
Ricoh and IBM don't offer training on it.

What options are out there? We have a form that needs shaded boxes,
graphics, different size and style fonts, including one line of MICR.

Vendor replies are ok too. Since this started out as a search for
training I'm not sure where things will end up.

Thank you for your help.
