    Would like to see improvements to (page) Aliasing - with the ability to assign a PDF across multiple jobs?

    This would certainly be a tall order. How could one know how to select a respective job for assignment? There would likely need to be some sort of search capability, then an ability to add a Prinergy job to a list; then the ability to choose the respective page. and then have an ability to add (+) another job, plus page position.

    It's not Impossible, just a bit of work.

    Looking at it from a bigger picture, wouldn't a data driven RBA solution be easier? If not viable - today?

      A big start would just be the ability to drag pages from one job to another in workshop. Similar to how we can currently drag a page from workshop to Preps. Doing it in RBA would be useful too. Or give APA the ability to use a full page path instead of just the page name.

        We achieve this for ganging jobs be exporting pages to PDF then copying to the user defined folder of the new job adding them with a bypass refine.
        Occasionally an operator has added the exported pages from the donor job instead of copying to the new job, this has caused issues if the donor job later needs to be destroyed, so I can imagine there would be significant issues if pages were shared between multiple jobs, the logistics of keeping track of them could be a nightmare.
