Re: Is there a tool to measure the color mix

In PitStop. If you select a vector shape or a font you can see the color breakdown of the object in the Inspector.
You also have the eyedropper tool which you can use on an individual object or on a position on the page to see the ink coverage of multiple objects that may overprint/knockout or blend.

Re: Switch 2019 Spring Edition

Not seen any reported issues of Switch/PitStop Server issues with the upgrade.

You can take it from me that part was extensively tested after the previous issues.

Re: PitStop 2019 wierd behaviour

Hi Lasse
This is similar to other things we've talked about in the webinars.
The fact Action Lists work in one pass.
I've added some 'Split Action List' Actions.
I'll reply to the email you sent and attach them.
Nice to see the Action List Debugger being put to work, makes things a lot easier.

Re: Different Colour Values

Are our support team looking at this, or do you need some help? If so can you send me the Action List and the sample file please? In PitStop Server you can configure the color management globally, per hotfolder or even within the Action List. We can ensure they are the same in both applications, and...

Re: Disappearing CMYK Profiles

That's weird. PitStop shouldn't have any effect on profiles seen by other applications. It installs it's own profiles, and also recognises the ones in the operating system. Can you contact support on this matter please. You don't say which version you are using, but I can honestly say this is the fi...

Re: Different Colour Values

That Action is from PitStop 2019 I'm afraid.
Perhaps download a trial version of PitStop Pro or PitStop Server 2019 to test?

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

Give this a try. There's a list of spot colors that are excluded from conversion.
You can add more as you wish.
I didn't have time to test it, so please test thoroughly.

Re: Different Colour Values

Well this seems to work on this file. It's a bit of drastic fix, but it looks ok on this file. You'd have to make sure it works on the others. The color is all vector now, so you can modify it. Just be aware that there are two color boxes now, the background one, and the one in the logo. Didn't chec...

Re: Different Colour Values

How many do you need to fix and are they all like this?
Same issue and the same file construction?

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.
