    I'm running the Flexi 10 RIP. My ink vendor provided me with some profiles in PTF format. I'm not familiar with that format. How do I add these to Flexi?

    Also, can I still use the traditional .icc profiles in Flexi 10?

    PTF is a file format used by Flexi 8 and higher. It stands for Preset Transfer File, and is intended to be a packaged media configuration for the SAi RIP. The PTF should include a custom ICC as a component of the PTF, along with channel ink limits, lineariazation info, and total ink limit info.

    It plugs into the SAi RIP (either PhotoPrint or FlexiSIGN-PRO's Production Manager application). In Production Manager, go to the File Menu > Install PTF File, and browse to the file, then confirm. Afterwords, the new media should be listed in the PTF list box in Production Manager/ PhotoPrint.

    Many thanks, Castek Resources!

    In my Production Manager, I went to File>Import Presets. Worked like a charm.

    :thankyou:
