    Share a location where the content files reside. Make sure that it is accessible by the :Apogee Prepress server.

    4.2. :APOGEE Prepress configuration JDF files from KIM can be used in :Apogee Prepress in 2 ways, depending on the system license.

    With :Apogee Integrate, you can set the Impose Task Processor to From input and import the output JDF file, which we will create in the next chapters, in the JDF Import Taskprocessor.

    In this way the content files are automatically imported as well and automatically placed in the correct runlist positions.

    With :Apogee Manage (and also :Apogee Integrate), you can set the Impose Task Processor to From file and browse to the output JDF file which we will create in the next chapters.

    In this way you cant place the content files in KIM but you need to place them manually in the correct runlist positions in :Apogee.
