Re: Metadata Logging Data from Pitstop Report Log

Bens -- thank you very much. That was it. The v3 XML version had the data easily reported for color and black and white pages.

Thanks again!

Create interactive PDF with hyperlinks

Is anybody familiar with creating an interactive PDF specifically with click-able hyperlinks? Ideally I'm looking for a way to automate the process so that a PDF with various web pages can become hyperlinks that would link to and open the webpage.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Extract Text from PDF for Metadata/Private Data Use

Curious if there is any other idea in how to accomplish this. I am starting with a CSV file that will trigger a SmartStream Deisgn VDP config which creates a multi page/record PDF. I then split that PDF into individual PDFs per record (every 8 pages of the original PDF). I then need to name that per...

Extract Text from PDF for Metadata/Private Data Use

Is there a way to search for and then extract and use a string of text from a PDF file to be used within Switch as either metadata or private data (or really anyhow) so that I can rename the PDF file? I want the name of the incoming PDF to be named by the string of text within the PDF. I can search ...

Combining XML Data Together From Multiple Files

Is it possible to run a calculation to add a particular number found within the XML data of multiple PDFs. I have a grouping of PDFs with XML data coming into the flow (each instance of this would have a different number of PDFs), and there is a number that I'd like to extract and combine from each ...

Re: Utilizing Pitstop Warning Report Data in Switch

I have figured out how to access the string from the Pitstop warning within Switch -- the Pitstop report needs to be changed to XML versus the default which is PDF.

Re: HP SmartStream Designer saving imposed JLT files

For anyone interested, we resolved the issue by creating a ticket template on the HP Production Pro DFE which has this specific PMS color + CMYK defined in the color mode so I can successfully print our imposed PDF file -- no need to save out the JLT.

Re: HP SmartStream Designer saving imposed JLT files

We have problems on press being able to recognize the defined PMS color in the PDF file for a custom-mixed PMS job that we run each week. It seems to only be recognized on press with a JLT. Granted we have been told that we should be able to from a PDF, but without any success we just resorted to .J...

This seems like an easy enough task but the SmartStream D...
