Dynamic Marks

Upgrade Illustrator® art to Dynamic Marks for reuse across all files. Dynamic Marks adapt in color and position based on file characteristics.

Add text marks displaying separation, user, file, or job information, along with gradation strips, bearer bars, and cut marks.

All marks stay fully editable to fit production variables and remain dynamic for future adjustments.

Import PDF

Secure file round-tripping between Adobe® Illustrator® and ArtPro+.

Import PDFs with Esko-specific information in Adobe® Illustrator® without losing layers, separations, or screening information.

This functionality improves the conversion of Normalized PDF files to Illustrator® format, keeping the file editable.
