Wacom Intuos4 tablets bundled with CG223W, CG243W and CG245W widescreen displays.

Sydney Australia, 6 October, 2010 – EIZO Oceania will include at no additional charge a Wacom Intuos4 Medium Size 6 to 9-inch graphics tablet with a soft-case carry bag, pen and pen stand (valued at $528) to buyers of its cutting-edge ColorEdge CG223W, ColorEdge CG243W and ColorEdge CG245W widescreen monitors during October and November, 2010.

According to EIZO Oceania’s Managing Director, Matthew Bauer, this special offer brings together products from two iconic Japanese companies renowned for high product quality and technical innovation. “EIZO stands for Image or Scene,” he explained, “while Wacom means Harmony in Computer Workflow. Together they provide an ideal platform for creativity.

“This is an excellent opportunity for anyone involved in imaging or graphics to obtain first class products to enhance their digital workflow. EIZO monitors provide the perfect display platform, while Wacom graphics tablets simplify and speed up on-screen editing processes.”

Designed to provide the ultimate in colour consistency and reliability, these three ColorEdge displays share the following features that set them ahead of competing products:

  • 16-bit colour processing to provide a wide colour and tonal palette for accurate colour matching plus a 3D look-up table that matches  preview colour to the image output colours, ensuring the image sent from the computer looks the same as the printed or displayed image.
  • Factory set gamma ensures images are displayed without banding and with smooth tonal gradients and greater detail than seen on competing LCD displays.
  • Flexibility when working with computer graphics cards, including the ability to display 10-bit simultaneous colour (roughly one billion individual hues and tones), enabling users of Adobe’s CS4 and CS5 software applications to make full use of their potential to run in 10-bit mode. (EIZO Australia can provide a list of compatible video cards, on request.)
  • Direct hardware calibration sets the monitor to its optimum state, instead of relying on profiles to manage the signal from the computer’s video card. This provides the quickest, easiest and most accurate calibration and, consequently, the most accurate ICC profile.
  • Digital Uniformity Equalization (DUE) technology, which guarantees edge-to-edge uniformity in brightness and chroma across the screen. This ensures graphics professionals can reliably evaluate their work on any part of the screen, not just in the middle.
  • A five-year warranty on every display. In the unlikely event of a problem with a ColorEdge display, a replacement will be provided on the spot.

This exciting offer applies while stocks last and is not available in conjunction with any other offer. The ColorEdge CG223W (RRP: $2,400), ColorEdge CG243W (RRP: $3,980) and ColorEdge CG245W (RRP: $4,670) are available now through EIZO dealers Australia-wide.

  1. Introducing layout themes and styles in FileMaker Pro 13

    FileMaker Pro, help, inspector, macworld australiaIf you are reading this, you are most likely aware of the benefits offered by FileMaker Pro 13, from streamlining your business’ data to organising projects, but how do you make your FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go database solutions look the part?

    This is where layout themes and styles come in.

    Would you like the layout to show your business logo when your employees are entering data into the database? Would you like to create conformity across all pages, maybe with a colour theme that matches your business?

    In order to increase usability for your database, a well-designed layout will make the solution both appealing to look at, but also more efficient – as those entering or viewing data will be able to easily navigate the fields in front of them.

    What is a style?

    In FileMaker Pro, a style is the way a layout object, layout part and the database’s background appear. This encompasses the colour or transparency of objects and backgrounds, the style of line used within the layout, the borders of objects and parts, the shape of objects, the shadows outside or inside an object’s border, and the display state of an object.

    For example, when your draw a square on your layout, the initial appearance of the square will be determined by the theme currently being used by the layout. The colour of the square, the lines that define it and any shadow that appears are all differing styles that add up to make a theme.

    The initial theme is called the default and ensures that all objects added to the layout carry a similar look. So, if you add a second square to the layout, it will have the same colour and borders. Though this does not have to be the case if you would like to differentiate them.

    And a theme?

    A theme is the collection of a number of styles used in a layout. Themes are the full picture of how your layout or report appears, and encompass all of the individual styles applied to objects, parts and the background. The theme does not affect the way a layout functions, but when you apply a theme to a layout it will alter the way it looks and feels.

    Making alterations

    Adjusting a style in a theme is very simple. If you click on the object, layout part or background you would like to alter, open the Inspector and head to the Appearances tab, you will see the Style label field at the top. This indicates the current style.  If no changes have been made, it will likely read as ‘Default’.

    Alter the style of the object, layout part or background by editing the property settings on the Appearance tab of the Inspector. Once you have made your layout look the way you would like, select the red arrow that will have appeared as you were making your changes and click ‘Save As New Style’.

    Type in a new name for your style and press OK. Continue to create as many additional styles as you would like in your layout. If you would like to apply a style to multiple objects or modify a style slightly between two objects, your previous styles will be available in the Styles list on the Style tab of the Inspector.

    Once you have made all of the changes you would like, you have the option of creating a new theme or saving the changes to the current theme.
