Re: Save as PDF 1.3

The main issue we have is when the customer place an image in a document and then place a CMYK filling on top and add transparency to the filling to change the color tone of the image. In these cases I have to save the PDF as an Acrobat 4, PDF 1.3, pdf for the rip to interpret the pdf correctly othe...

Save as PDF 1.3

I need to save pdf files as Acrobat 4 (PDF 1.3) because the rip for one of our printers is having problems with transparencies.
Preferably I'd like to do it in Switch or with an action list, but I can't figure out how to do it. :?

Re: Page Scaling Factor

If I run the action list the pdf will look like it does above, but if I save, close and then open the pdf again it is correct. :lol:

Dunno why I didn't try that earlier...

Page Scaling Factor

I have received a couple of pdf files for print from a customer, however the customer has applied a Page Scaling Factor of 10 to the pages, so when I look at the page size it says 23282x28032 mm instead of 2328x2803 mm. If I try to change the Page Scaling Factor to 1 the page size is correct, but th...

Re: A way to convert line fill to 1 line

If you have PitStop 2020 or later you could use the Trace Objects (found under Line Art Editing) to create a new path. The new path will trace along the outside of the line fill, so the difference in size shouldn't be that big. Check Ingore white holes to only get a single path. Make a copy of the o...

Save as Optimised PDF from Adobe Acrobat Professional configurator

Does anyone know if it is possible to save a pdf file as an optimised pdf using the Adobe Acrobat Professional configurator? I can't find any options for it, so I assume you would have to use a script to do it if it's possible, but how would you write the script to save the file as an optimised pdf ...

Add a node to an xml-file

I need to create a flow which among other things adds a node to an existing xml file.

Re: PitStop disappearing from Acrobat DC

I had a colleague who "lost" his PitStop tools after an update (Mac OS). If he used the shortcut in the dock to start his Adobe Acrobat all PitStop tools were gone, but after I went to the Programs folder on his Mac and started Adobe Acrobat from inside it's folder all of the tools magically reappea...

Re: Flow not showing same information when activated

Yes, there are twenty folders that are excluded, but none of them have been changed recently. Yes, keep originals on server is also active as all this flow does is to inform the csr that a file has been uploaded to their account, the name of the file and if it's a pdf it also tells them how many pag...

Flow not showing same information when activated

I have a flow which basically moitor our ftp-server and send an e-mail to the csr when a customer uploads a file. When the flow isn't activated it shows that there are 152 folders on the server, but once I activate the flow it says that there are only 5 folders on the server an hence it does not sen...

Thanks for the information Ben! I noticed that I have accidentally created an Pantone Color with Lab as Alternate color space, that's why it worked as intended.. :oops: It's been a while since I did that flow and it was only for testing purposes.

Re: Random Spot Colors - Convert to CMYK

I did a flow in Switch that does a similar task.
This is the action list I use.

Perhaps it can help you as well?
