Re: Problem with hidden layers

It does seem the application flattens layers which is very strange considering that they are very common place in that market. What also seems strange is the part about exporting as a PDF from Illustrator working. Was that actually a PDF export or an AI file? I would contact Grafitroniks support as ...

Re: Problem with hidden layers

The links require you to login to Googledrive and then get share permissions.
Any chance the share settings can be changed to just download.

Re: page copy

Here's a modified version of the Action List that won't move.
The change is in the position tab of the paste Action. I turned off the 'move' option.
So the content won't move and will be pasted in the original position.

Re: Converting all colors to process while preserving certain spot colors.

You can make an Action List that does that quite easily.
Do you have a list of Spot Color names that you want to preserve?

Re: Flatten transparency

Optional Content is related to layers in a PDF file.

If you don't need the layers I would suggest you try flattening the layers. There are Action Lists for that.

If you want me to take a look then please send me the file. Andrewb@enfocus.com

Re: Remove cropmarks

Can you upload a sample PDF file please or send it to me?
andrewb@enfocus.com

It's probable the inner set of marks are hand drawn, and not being detected.
I'd like to investigate.

Re: A4 check

I answered a similar case today. I think it's the tolerance/precison maybe.
Are you using an Action List or a Preflight Profile.

Re: PDF stuck at input folder - version 13.2

Has this problem just started, if so did anything change? Was it running ok before? Bear in mind that is quite an old version now. The problem is without a maintenance contract you are not going to be able to get help from support. I would suggest you discuss the situation with your IT team. If you ...

Re: Gatefold-Crop panels

BTW, it's definitely doable in PitStop 2019.
The new Split Action List really helps.
If you give me the page dimensions I can have a play.
Do you need Bleed on the split pages?

Re: Gatefold-Crop panels

Interesting one.
I guess you have a front and a back.
What are the three page measurements, I guess it's something like 210mm, 210mm, 209mm?

Re: Crop line art and gradients

I replied to your post on Linkedin as well Sean.
The Action doesn't work on blends, so use an Action to convert it to an image and then crop the pixels.

You can take a look at the file in PitStop Pro and using the mask tools be able see the mask that's got that excess resolution.
