Using the Document

  • Open the document with PlanetPress Design.
  • Open the dialog to open a sample data file.
  • Browse to the location of the PlanetPress Workflow configuration you want to print. To use the current configuration you can browse to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Objectif Lune\PlanetPress Suite 7\PlanetPress Watch\ and open ppwatch.cfg.
  • Either do a File -> Preview to see the output before printing, or do a File -> Print to directly print the output. Make sure to select All Page as a page range, or the output will not be complete.
