Canto Version 5.7.4

Adobe Connector - Automatically create related files when inserting images from Canto using the Canto Adobe Connector for InDesign, Photoshop & Illustrator

When you insert an image that already lives in Canto to an InDesign, Photoshop or Illustrator document, Canto will now automatically create and display the inserted images as related files. 

New Version - Edit Metadata & Add Version Comments

When uploading a file as a New Version and if the duplicate check setting is set to Show Dialog, you will now be able to edit metadata right from the duplicate check window and also add version comments.

Keep in mind that a preview can only be displayed for image formats (JPG, PNG, BMP etc.).

Restricted Folders Update

Admins can now give access to different users/groups for folders with subfolders or albums without giving them access to the entire list of subfolders or albums under the parent folder. 

Example: If you would like your US Marketing Team to view only the US Marketing Collateral album and your EU Marketing Team to only access the EU Marketing Collateral under the Marketing parent folder, you will now have the ability to set the rights to access these specific folders without giving them access to other albums or subfolders under the Marketing folder. Before, you were required to give the user/group access to the parent folder and only then go ahead and specify further access to the albums or subfolders under the parent folder.

Restricted Folders Limit Increase 

The Restricted Folders limit has been increased to 50.

Read Metadata Terms & Conditions Setting 

You can now turn off the ability to read embedded Terms & Conditions from the XMP Usage Terms metadata field. 

Read Metadata - Renamed and included additional Metadata Field Option 

Canto now supports the mapping of IPTC Caption-Abstract metadata field to the Canto Description field and all options have been renamed to reflect the correct metadata standards.
