Bug fixes and general improvements


Storefront creation form

Set up new storefronts with ease, with our new and improved storefront creation form.

This new form, which appears automatically when adding a new storefront, allows you to define critical storefront information such as branding, alias URL and purpose of the storefront, all in one place.



Placing orders without artwork

We have introduced the ability to place orders without the completed specification of artwork. These jobs would not be passed into the production process until the user uploads artwork and finalizes the job via their My Orders area.

This setting can be configured on a global storefront or product-by-product basis.



Improved site performance with Access Permissions

We are pleased to inform our customers that improvements have been made to how indexing is carried out using our Access Permissions functionality, resulting in a significant increase in speed when navigating storefronts using this functionality.

Taxable shipping by tax provider

We have introduced the ability to control if shipping is taxable by the selected tax providers.

This has been developed to work for the following tax provider options:

  • TaxJar
  • Tax By Country State Zip.

Check out the step-by-step guide below to see how it's done.



New Invent release

A new version of Invent, Infigo's plugin for Adobe InDesign is now available for our customers to download. This release sees a range of bug fixes and minor updates, and paves the way for a larger release, crammed with new features, expected in the coming months.


As always, the latest version of Invent can be obtained from our help centre. Click the following link to get your hands on the new version:



Let's take a quick look at some of the changes in this version:

Batch creation of variables

A new feature has been introduced to allow the creation of multiple variables at once. A set of identical variables can be created with ease, with the only variation being in he variable name.

This is a useful tool in rapidly creating sets of virtually identical variables.


Maximum page limit increased

The maximum number of pages allowed in an Invent document has been increased to 100.

Invent version checks

Additional verification checks have been added to prevent the opening of templates created in more recent versions of the Invent plugin.

Alphanumeric character restrictions

Spot colour allowable names have been updated to allow only alphanumeric characters, hypens and underscores.

Multi-frame operations

The capability has been added to "Enable" multiple InDesign frames at once. Instead of setting frames to dynamic one at a time, they can now be multi-selected and a new "Enable all" button is available.

Batch font loading

Improved performance when loading fonts. This reduces amount of time the UI may be unresponsive when loading fonts.


Feature of the month | Access Permissions

Our feature of the month is Access Permissions, a powerful piece of functionality allowing you to control access to products based on the logged in user.

Control access to products based on location, department, customer or role. Products themselves can be grouped by category, tag, product group and more!

  • Additional log messages added for clarity.

  • Improvements to the Magento extension to react on Infigo record order failing. If the order is failing on Infigo platform side, send an email to the store owner about the order that failed and the error message. The store owner can navigate to Magento order at Infigo order status section and retrigger a record order again.
