LAGO 5.5 is available now!

Dear customers,
Dear LAGO users,

Autumn is just around the corner as summer 2019 comes to an end.
With the beginning of the colorful season, life begins to pulsate again and pick up speed. This does not mean that Comosoft has "dangled its legs" during the summer. Quite the opposite! We have been hard at work this past summer developing many new features and functionalities for you, especially in the area of "Proofing" and "Whiteboard". Additionally, we have implemented even more interesting innovations, allowing you to design the production of advertising material even more efficiently. With LAGO 5.5.1, you can easily compare correction documents and certified documents, or simply highlight and cross out text (just to name a few). Just ask us and we will be happy to explain the new possibilities that LAGO 5.5.1 offers you.

Many greetings from Hamburg,

Peter Jozefiak
Managing Director

  • LAGO Proof in PDF quality without Acrobat license costs
    LAGO Proof uses PDF documents to meet the highest quality standards for slim documents. Texts remain perfectly legible even when zooming in and out. This makes (the support of) Adobe Acrobat in LAGO obsolete and the original license costs associated with it unnecessary for our customers.
  • New correction tools in LAGO Proof
    LAGO offers two long missing text correction tools. Both text highlighting and text strikethrough are now possible. Both correction tools, like all other marks, can be labeled and provided with instructions.
  • LAGO Proof with Correction Marks in Element Context
    LAGO offers the possibility to link correction marks with a single element within a document. The correction marks are only visible in the variants in which the element exists, i.e. only in the correct context.
    The correction marks change position depending on where the element is moved to. If the element is deleted, the linked correction marks are also removed.
  • Document comparison in LAGO Proof
    In LAGO Proof it is possible to compare correction documents of different variants or certified documents with the help of a slider. This allows differences between variants or between the workflow status of a document to be visualized.
    All the user has to do is select two correction or certificates documents and click the "Compare" button. The documents are displayed one above the other in a comparison view. A slider below the documents allows you to show and hide the documents step by step in real time. A "Flip" button allows the first or second document to be faded in completely to allow a quick comparison between the states.
  • Subcategories for placement rules
    In LAGO Admin Extend it is possible to create subcategories for placement rules. This enables manual intervention in an otherwise fully automatic placement process.
    For example, you can manually adjust the size or color of price tags placed using the rules of an element layout. The edited price tags remain available for rule-based exchange processes.
  • Rule-based selection of element layouts in page layouts
    The page layout functionality has been enhanced to allow automatic selection and application of element layouts based on the evaluation of predefined rules. This functionality was implemented at the request of our customers at the last US user conference.
  • LAGO API
    Following the recent US User Conference, Comosoft conducted a survey among our customers to develop the LAGO API in the optimal order for our customers so that the API could be deployed as early as possible. This and a customer project resulted in the requirement to be the first to make the API available in the Assets area. Assets can be searched, modified and loaded via their properties as well as via their use in the article context.
  • Terminology
    In order to consolidate LAGO terminology and make it easier to understand, some terms have been adapted.Modules -> Applications
    User interface configuration -> Workspace

Dear customers,
Finally, Spring is just around the corner.
Spring is the epitome of change and renewal. This is the challenge we all have to face and we are not talking about hanging our winter clothes back in the closet and taking out our spring clothes. It is much more about the change in society and our way of thinking! Digitisation is the keyword, but this term does not cover what it means for us and our environment. It is always about efficiency, availability, sustainability, etc. .
All these issues are progressing rapidly and it is one of Comosoft's tasks to ensure that we offer you suitable solutions with a sense of proportion.
We have all noticed that it is right to digitize everything that needs to be digitized, but exactly this strategy must also take into account our habits and behavior.
Because as J.M. Keynes said: "The biggest difficulty is not moving people to accept new ideas, but forgetting old ones".
So forget about technologies like Flash or Adobe Acrobat! We have something better to offer.

Regards from Hamburg,

Peter Jozefiak
Managing Director

  • MAM - HTML5 available
    The HTML5 based replacement (MAM) for Asset in LAGO Web is now available. This application can be activated in the central configuration by adding 'MODULE_MAM' to the LAGO/WebCommon/EnabledModules entry.
  • PDF merging without the need for Adobe Acrobat
    The PDF merge functionality in the LAGO Automat is now capable of merging PDF files using native functionality from the operating system instead of requiring an Adobe Acrobat installation (Mac only).
  • Ability to create, edit and delete search folders for jobs in the HTML5 applications
    The jobs list in the HTML5 based LAGO Web applications has been enhanced to allow the creation, editing and deletion of user defined search folders.
  • Automatic assignment of elements to shops
    LAGO now offers the ability to automatically assign elements to shops based on the rules defined for the shops via a LAGO MessageBus plugin which will apply the rules for all shops in currently open projects.
  • Remove logically deleted elements from the page
    LAGO can now be configured to automatically set the working page and raster field number of logically deleted elements to '0'. This is extremely useful to prevent conflicts if new elements are imported to replace those which were logically deleted.
  • Annotations
    The Annotations functionality in the LAGO plugin for Adobe InDesign has been enhanced to allow the raster fields from the page layout to be displayed as either an overlay or and underlay within the InDesign document as a special, non-printable layer.
  • Scripting enhancement
    The LAGO scripting has been enhanced to allow the element level fields to be referenced within scripts at the article or price level.

Dear customers,
The Christmas season is once again upon us and after the release of our last major release for this year, we are all preparing for a blessed Christmas and a great end to the year.
Again, the year 2018 was full of events and it is expected that 2019 will be just as eventful, because nothing is as guaranteed as the emergence of innovation and change.
The questions on these topics will be the same, only the answers will be different.
In this sense, we are pleased to be able to provide useful features in this release and wish you a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and thank you for the successful collaboration.
We'll see each other again in 2019 and we're looking forward to it.
Best regards,

Peter Jozefiak
Managing Director
