It’s hard to believe 3 months have passed so fast. Comosoft has used the time to add more useful functionalities to LAGO. With LAGO 5.14, we provided new innovations that support your workflows even better.
We have once again added impressive functions to LAGO Proof, LAGO PIM, LAGO DAM, LAGO Whiteboard, as well as the much appreciated LAGO Explorer, which will make your advertising material production even faster and, above all, more secure.
For example, you now have the option to set elements to Proof Complete in LAGO Proof. Checked elements receive a “check symbol” in the proof view and can be easily distinguished from “non-checked elements” by a colored marking.
With this feature you can perform your correction process even faster and do not run the risk of overlooking unfinished corrections.
This is just one of the new features coming with LAGO 5.14, so take the time to read our release notes and learn all about our new LAGO 5.14 release.
Of course, we look forward to welcoming you to our LAGO 5.14 release webinar. Here you will have the opportunity to address questions regarding the new features to us.
The invitation to the webinar will be sent to you shortly.
Greetings from Hamburg, stay healthy and see you at the Release 5.14 Webinar.
- Enhancements to LAGO Proof
LAGO Proof now offers a new way to verify documents via your correction/proofing workflow. This new feature set enables the selection of an element in Proof for the purpose of marking it as “checked” or “not checked” via a new button in the toolbar. A visual indicator is also made available in Proof so that a user can quickly see which elements have been checked or not. If a user attempts to “check” (approve) an element that has unresolved correction marks, a message dialog will communicate to the user that the element cannot be moved to the “checked” status due to unresolved correction marks. All visual indicators in Proof are toggled ON/OFF via a button in the toolbar. All new buttons are configurable in workspaces to tailor the UI to each user.Further additions to LAGO Proof include the ability to: 1. Copy correction marks to one or to multiple elements simultaneously.2. Create correction marks for multiple elements at the same time.3. Display correction mark details as tooltips on the proof canvas. 4. Easily move pages forward and backwards through the LAGO workflow via a new button in the toolbar. 5. Configure presets for correction marks. These presets include pre-defined texts for the correction name and description plus the ability to define whether a correction mark should be global, local, a document correction, or an element correction. 6. Automatically advance a document workflow step in the event that no open correction marks exist. Additionally, LAGO Explorer now offers two new document check runs that can verify whether a document contains open correction marks and whether all elements of that document have been marked as “checked”.

- New functions within Element Layouts
The core functionality to automatically pre-populate or build InDesign documents within LAGO has been enhanced with two additional features.First, it is now possible to create assets with text captions via element layouts. This requires the text captions to be stored within an asset property and a component template that contains at least one empty image frame plus a frame for the text caption. To support this feature, it is possible to assign the following element layout configuration, “create and arrange for matching assets”, to layout objects.The second new feature enables users to create a component for multiple articles based on placement rule conditions. The placement rules can be based on the article, article property, price, or price property values. The option for evaluation is configurable and set in the element layout configuration. When placement rule conditions are found to be true, a component is created for each distinct article. An example use case for this feature would be an element that has 5 articles assigned and among those 5 articles, 2 different retail prices exist, resulting in two price tags needing to be placed on the document.
- New features in LAGO PIM, LAGO DAM and LAGO Whiteboard
LAGO PIM has been enhanced with additional features, including the ability to edit prices or change the sorting of article to element assignments. LAGO DAM now supports the ability to define a threshold limit for the number of comma separated search entries for searching with a new entry in the central configuration. If the limit is exceeded, a message will be displayed, and the number of search results will be truncated to the defined maximum. Additionally, we support the ability to put search results directly into a shopping cart via a button. LAGO Whiteboard supports the assignment of “Grids” to working pages while working in Page layout mode.
- History for user account changes in LAGO Admin
The LAGO history module has been enhanced to support the tracking of user account changes. This includes the user account itself, as well as the assignment of roles, changes to existing user roles, and assignments to workgroups. A new History view in LAGO Admin enables these user account changes to be seen.
- API enhancements
The LAGO API now offers further data manipulation functionality, such as the asset assignment order of articles and elements, the possibility to logically delete an asset, as well as, assigning assets to articles using property tokens and values.
- LAGO Import enhancement
In addition, the LAGO standard import can now import external keys for articles, elements, and prices, which enables identifying these objects using the API (version 3).
