Meet us at PRINT 19. Chicago, IL. Oct. 3 - 5.


The ~/Configuration/Aurigma.DesignAtoms.config file allows you to configure the location of color profiles.

The following snippet shows color management parameters of Customer's Canvas, which you can set up in either the Aurigma.DesignAtoms section of Web.config or in the separate ~/Configuration/Aurigma.DesignAtoms.config file, with their default values.

        <section name="Aurigma.DesignAtoms"
        type="System.Configuration.NameValueSectionHandler, System, Version=1.0.3300.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" />
        <add key="RgbColorProfileFileName" value="" />
        <add key="CmykColorProfileFileName" value="" />
        <add key="GrayscaleColorProfileFileName" value="" />
        <add key="PdfHiResRasterizeVectorLayers" value="False" />
        <add key="ColorProfilesDirectory" value="..\assets\ColorProfiles" />
        <add key="FontDirectory" value="..\assets\fonts" />
        <add key="PsdTextBoxWorkaroundEnabled" value="False" />

Parameters defining paths are either relative or absolute. Relative paths to folders are specified from your site root and start with ~/ (for example, ~/ColorProfiles). Absolute paths are complete ones; they start either with a drive letter (for example, C:\) or \\ for network locations. When you use absolute paths to external folders, make sure that the user account, under which Customer's Canvas runs in ASP.NET/IIS, has the read/write access to the remote folders.
