Re: Job Submission via API - help please!!

I haven't done job submission to Switch myself, but looking at your code I see that you set the Content-Type and Content-Length headers. When working in nodejs I personally use a library to calculate these when I work in nodejs. From what I can find online you don't have to specify them when you wor...

Re: HTTP request (square brackets in JSON conflicts with Switch variables)

You can escape square brackets in switch variables by duplicating the opening brackets. Can you try this? '{ "model": "gpt-4-1106-preview", "messages": [[ { "role": "user", "content": "Write a poem about flowers" } ], "temper...

Re: Delay Indesign Saving a Document

I have used the following line in the past for font activation with extensis

$.sleep(10000)
(Unit is milliseconds)

You might want to try freddys suggestion first, if it works it won't need delays.

Re: Image compression

It can indeed change the image compression. You can change the behavior by adding the "Override default image recompression" action before the action which is changing the images.

Re: Number of pages of InDesign-file

You can lower the indesing saving time for all pages by lowering the preview resolution. But that may be a problem if you use the preview.

Re: Number of pages of InDesign-file

I think there is page information in the XMP? This Switch variable gives the highest page number in my test: [Metadata.Integer:Path="xmp:PageInfo/*[last()]/xmpTPg:PageNumber"] In InDesign this is of course not always equal to the amout of pages since you can start a document with any page ...

Re: Error in script expression when using setPrivateData

Script expressions only have read access to the switch api.

If you want to set private data using a script expressions, then you can use the data mapper app. There you set the tag in the app and calculate the value using a script expression.

Re: Database Values as NodeJS Parameters

Then I think the best option is to have some small reproducible sample and report it to Enfocus Support. Another workaround you could try: put the requesting of the property in a try catch, and if there is an exception, wait for 1 second or so and then request the property again. Even if the workaro...

Re: Adobe Preset

Is it possible that you are on Windows and Illustrator was started manually (not by Switch)?

On windows InDesign/Illustrator/Photoshop need to be started by Switch, otherwise the the communication with Switch won't work.

Re: Problem with File Pool Cleanup

Hi Jan, the weird thing is, I can only use the folder picker to set the path, I can't set the path inline. What am I missing? I think it should be possible to add the path Jan suggests in the windows folder picker dialog. If you still can't access the location this way, then I think it's best to ch...

Re: Illustrator Package

This is a list of Illustrator commands which you can use in scripting: https://ten-artai.com/illustrator-ccver-22-menu-commands-list As you can see, the package command is not in the list. It is necessary to do all the separate steps in scripting. So the script should get the list of links, place th...

Is it possible that you are not using the latest version of Subflow? Version 4 introduced support for JSON datasets and should fix this.

Re: Script doesn't work in InDesign configurator

The rules to write adobe scripts in Switch are documented here:
https://www.enfocus.com/manuals/UserGui ... tions.html

I suspect the script will work if you find all references to

Code: Select all

app.documents[0] 
And replace it with

Code: Select all

$doc

Re: Pitstop Server Action List Multi-line Text With Variables Defined

To my knowledge, there are two ways you can reference it using variables:
- The name of the action list/preflight profile, without extension
- The full path to the action list/preflight profile, including extension
