LAGO 5.18 Release

By |Published On: June 1st, 2022|2.6 min read|

Dear customers,

By definition, communication is the exchange of information using a variety of methods and channels, with its catalyst being will and ability. Communication has and always will be, at the center of all commerce. And when it comes to connecting with your customers via marketing channels, LAGO is the tool of choice for you and our growing community of users.

If we assume that your business wants to communicate both internally and to its customers, we have to make sure that it can. Inter-departmental teams and their marketing materials are more diverse than ever–gaps in communication can translate into missed marketing and sales opportunities.

For decades, LAGO has been a bridge between all departments and users, handling communication with ease. From the earliest planning stages, through proofing and output, LAGO automates tasks that make up an efficient marketing workflow.

With LAGO 5.18, we have enhanced existing communication functionalities in LAGO Proof, now offering the ability to add comments to user-created proofs markups. This feature adds another layer to our already robust proofing toolkit.

Additionally, LAGO Layout now enables you to curate digital content in the familiar Adobe InDesign environment. Hyperlinks can be added to any LAGO document and are also preserved during PDF export via the Automat (Adobe InDesign Server). Copying, reuse, as well as use in multi-variant productions are all fully supported.

Read about this and much more in the LAGO 5.18 release notes.

  • Comments for Correction Marks
    It was not possible to add comments to correction marks in LAGO Proof. A correction mark can now have multiple comments from different users. Comments from the creator of the correction mark are highlighted. Created comments are shown with the name of the creator and the date of creation or edit in a new group below the list of correction marks. Comments are also shown in certified documents, though they can not be created or edited.
    The creation and editing of correction marks is also possible within LAGO Layout. Comments are shown in a new section in the already existing correction mark palette.
  • Hyperlinks in InDesign Documents
    LAGO Documents are now supporting the usage of InDesign Hyperlinks. Hyperlinks can be added to LAGO components or component templates. Hyperlinks will also remain in exported PDF documents allowing the creation of interactive PDF documents.
  • Variant Group Filtering by Project Validity
    The variant tree within LAGO Whiteboard can now filter variant groups by the variant type to variant group validity dates in conjunction with the validity of a project.
  • Preview of Automatic Shop and Catchword Assignment Rules
    When creating or editing shop or catchword assignment rules in LAGO Explorer, a new preview function allows the user to identify how many assignments will be created by the new or edited rules prior to applying the change. In addition the user may also choose to apply the rules at a later stage through LAGO MessageBus.
  • Support of new QuickTime Formats
    The asset import is now able to support newer version and codecs of the QuickTime format.
