Welcome to the support center for

Fancy Product Designer & Multistep Product Configurator

In Progress

Process automation

First of all - a wunderful product you gave us with FancyProductDesigner!


As we plan to do some automation for order processing, it would be nice to have the following possibilities:


- automatically export FancyProduct with completion of an order

- therefor it would be nice to be able to define default export settings for a product

- exclude layers or images from export (like Paddaman requested earlier)

- callback hook (to do further processing like converting RGB-PDF to CMYK-PDF and so on..)


Is it possible to add (at least some of) the requested features?

If not, any suggestions or workarounds?


Thanx a lot!

Good idea

This is a good idea! I would love for the image export in the backend to either be automated and available to the customer to export/download a high resolution image. For my workflow (downloadable images), it makes no sense (and is very time consuming) for me to have to export every order and email the image. It needs to be automatic.


Thanks!

It would indeed be quite nice if we could automatically export the final design / layers and send these as attachments or a zip file with an email.

Definitely agree ! I could pay now for that !

I would also pay for these features! This is a huge dealbreaker.

Where are we at with this?!!!!!

This one missing capability is ruining the entire plugin!


Agreed – I would also gladly pay to see improvement on the production part of this plugin. Very important.

I know - these features are a must have. As well as non-printing layers, you should be able to toggle layer visibility so you can show and hide guides and bleeds etc.

This is a two year old post, and it has still not been implemented. Many much less important features have been added during this time. Sure, we have different needs, but you need to see the importance of this, Radykal.


Some points:

  • There are many posts here about this same thing.
  • We're willing to pay for it, wouldn't cost you an thing.
  • You could even hire someone else to do write the changes if you don't have time.
  • And then you could even sell it as another add-on, or just add to the main plugins price.
  • It would greatly improve your good product and it's value.

Yea This is seriously the most important thing to use this plugin efficiently.

 

I would happily pay for this plugin. Ideally I sell downloadable print files so it would be great if the file that was available for them to download was also re-sized correctly.

Good news, and good plan!


JPEG to us, is probably the least used of the supplied formats, due to lack of transparency-support. I think that applies to most people doing screen printing. High resolution PNG (300 dpi) works well. We could also use PDF or SVG, but have had some troubles with the fonts, mostly that information about line height and letter spacing is lost when exporting.

yey that's cool! I think it would be nice to select elements you want to exclude from export (like in admin solution for fancy product designer) as well as set the basic settings like output file, image format, View(s), scaling etc...


I'd love to test the beta.

Would really like to use something like that! I'll definitely register for the beta.


Sending an e-mail with all attachments to an admin would be great, optionally in a zip file. If PDF/SVG's are well supported (i.e: troubles with the fonts) it's probably best but like Andreas said a hi-res PNG works too. Support for multiple views and the possibility to remove the background layer, or a layer with a specific name, is critical.


When multiple layers are used and we export all layers, the resolution of the source file should be used. Currently, if you remove the background layer and export all layers at once with a scale factor of x2, FPD takes a snapshot of the staging area and increase the size of the snapshot by 2, effectively loosing quality.


Looking forward to test the beta!
