Local machine requirements
To successfully download and use the Tagger your computer will need the following:
- Windows 10 or Windows 11 - please be aware the tagger does not work on macOS
- Permission from your IT administrator to run .exe from %temp%/Ctrl/Tagger/
- Permission from your IT administrator to run: Appdata/Roaming/AMANAConsulting/pdfToHTMLEx/0.14.7-win/pdf2htmlEX.exe
- If you are using AppLocker, you may need to create exceptions for the Tagger to work.
Documents used on CtrlPrint are version specific. There are different versions of InCopy/InDesign. To open documents you must have the correct version.
If for any reason you are unsure which version you need, check with the people creating your document. We support InCopy/InDesign:
2022 (v17.x) - recommended for production this year. InCopy | InDesign
2023 (v18.x) - recommended for production next year InCopy | InDesign
You will need to install a recent version of either Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Reader or any other PDF reader to view PDFs. We do not recommend using a web browser.
All users working on the same project must have the correct fonts installed.
If fonts are not installed, you will see a 'Missing Fonts' dialogue box in InCopy/InDesign when you download the chapter for editing and your document will look different to how you expect it.
Fonts work like applications – they must be purchased, licensed and installed. It is up to each company to decide which fonts they will use in their documents.
CtrlPrint does not supply or deliver fonts to users. Please confirm which fonts are required with your project manager or agency contact.
We recommend OTF (OpenType) for easy compatibility between Mac and Windows.
