    Preview .job

    I am not sure if your question refers to previewing the File Extension (.job) or the JOB file itself.

    On my mac the .job extension is automatically displayed, even if you didn't type it following the file name in the "Output File Base Name" dialog window.
    If it is not displayed on your mac, you probably need to set your viewing preferences.

    OTOH, if you wish to display the .JOB file itself, you should be able to preview single pages (.p# files) within PSM 8.1, on any mac even without a dongle connected.

    Good luck.

    Thanks Shap, I wrote here to ask anybody if he knows extra plug-in or software to see the *.job file. For example, in Window, the extra software is Impose 2000.
    Any suggestion is high appreciate.
    Thanks again.

    In PS/M you can preview Postscript with rip, but you need dongle for do it. For preview PDF PS/M uses Acrobat reader.
    If you rip a file in PS/M, you will get a .JOB in output folder.
    You can preview this .JOB with the same PS/M without dongle.In fact, a dual configuration exists to work with the PS/M with imagesetters or CTPs. You can have one station for RIP and other for EXPOSE with PS/M or XPO.
    Also another tool exists for preview the JOB that in addition allows to see for separated colors the output. It is PRESSTOUCH and you can get in the following link:

    View Scitex .job on Windows

    AFAIK, PressTouch is a Mac application only.

    There are some software apps on Windows that can display Scitex CT/LW files, they offer many other features so are naturally costly.

    Serendipity BlackMagic and Apago Piktor come to mind.

    Good hunting!
