Pitstop tools inactive on 2nd PDF

What is the deal with Pitstop tools not working when I have more than one PDF open? Is that by design or is it my computer? I've never had this problem in the past with older versions. I am running Windows 10, Acrobat Pro DC and Pitstop 2019. Is this a bug or a preference somewhere? It is very annoy...

Switch generating future timestamps on files

Has anybody run into a problem with Switch generating future timestamps on files? I have a flow that brings in pdfs from FTP and pdf travels through several mini flows. The first thing Switch does is to park a copy of the original file in a folder. This file (original) sometimes will show timestamps...

Re: variable scaling

Thanks for the input. I have a logo and other artwork along with the text that I want to enlarge proportionally. That is good to know that you can do that with text only though.

variable scaling

Does anyone have a way of scaling art based on the width of a trim box? I want to automatically place a proof tag at the bottom of my posters but I would like to enlarge the proof tag to almost as wide as the page to make it easier to read. I can place at 100% but then we have to zoom in to read it....

Re: Merge PDFs and rename based on pdf filenames

gabrielp---thank you for the input. Unfortunately, this is all over my head. I'm going to explore those suggestions and learn more about how these elements work. I thank you for taking the time to post these suggestions. You have given me a specific direction to learn about.

Switch Training

Hello,

What is a good resource for learning how to use PowerSwitch? Are there any tutorials online anywhere? I just need basic understanding on how some elements work. Enfocus gave me a contact person for hourly training but we are not ready for that yet.

Merge PDFs and rename based on pdf filenames

Hi, I have a switch flow that will merge 2 pdfs (front and back--page1 and page2) into 1 pdf and rename resulting pdf to match folder name. Before dropping into input folder I have to place both pdfs into a folder and name the folder like the pdfs (minus a few prefix characters and the _p1 designati...

Re: Switch sometimes fails to move files

Switch is the only one accessing the originals folder. I will try to branch the FTP into 2 separate. I didn't do it initially because I was afraid it might throw off the function that does not leave originals on server. I'll give it a try and let you know the outcome. Thanks!

Switch sometimes fails to move files

I have a simple flow that will "move" files from FTP to an "originals" folder on our server. Then it "copies" out PDFs only into another folder after a cyclical hold of 10 minutes. All files in "originals" folder will delete after 7 days via another cyclical hold. Because all files in the "originals...
