Re: HP Smartstream and InDesign Error

We are also getting the same error. Smartstream Designer is unusable via the Switch configurator with the latest version of 15.0.6 Smartstream Designer installed. I did notice in the release notes of 15.0.6 that this version was supposed to 'fix an issue with Switch'. Maybe that issue still exists? ...

Re: Beta testers requested for new "Flow Links" app

I see the Switch2Switch app is now at version 6.0 as of today. The new feature is that “The channel name is now URL encoded and when the transfer is local, the job is copied and not transferred via http.

Re: Hold until variable number of files

You can use the Hold job groups app or Assemble Jobs and define the number of files as a variable with private data. If you want to wait for the same amount of PDF files as your csv counted row private data, define the number of files with a switch calculation: [Switch.Calculation:Expression="[Job.P...

Re: Portals failing after update to 4.0

Hi Thomas, thanks for your reply. Even with version 6, Portals is very buggy. We are seeing zip files getting stuck within Portals folders. When this happens, we get the following errors: unpackJob returned false. Could not unpack. Skipping this file. See previous message for further information [/b...

Re: Portals failing after update to 4.0

I've noticed since upgrading to version 6.0 (and I think the same was also happening with version 5.0) that some of our callbacks are failing. Switch Portals is occasionally leaving zip files in this location: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Enfocus\Switch Server\ScriptData\SwitchPortalsEther (Doi...

Many thanks for that! I never even thought about changing the font of the static text.

%Page Number% in a barcode

Anyone know how to add a page number to a Pitstop barcode? The variable %Page Number;padding=2% does not work. I need to use it in a code 39 barcode with a PDF and the Switch Pitstop Configurator. The %Page Number% variable works with a static text object, but not when used in pitstop barcode creati...

Re: HP SmartStream Designer 14.0.6 for InDesign CC 2019

I forgot to add, the configurator requires Adobe InDesign + SmartStream Designer + Adobe ExtendScript Toolkit in order to function properly.

Look for ExtendScript Toolkit CC for Windows (32bit) and Mac OS (64bit) here: https://creative.adobe.com/products/estk

Re: HP SmartStream Designer 14.0.6 for InDesign CC 2019

Yes it definitely works with Switch Configurator. We use it every day. Occasionally we do have a timing problem the first time the configurator is used if InDesign was not already open in the background. I now have InDesign open on my switch server. A newer version of Smartstream Designer 14.1 is av...

Re: Clearing boards

I had the same problem with 'ghost' jobs being left in the boards I had created. I found out that the jobs had existed in flows which were no longer available in Switch (i.e. deleted flows). If I edited the board I could see flows that no longer exist in our switch configuration. It's as if when you...

Re: Send Mail: Define sender

I got around this by creating a VBScript in SwitchScripter which runs whenever a job arrives at the script. Here is the example code to make the script. You can add your own From, To, Cc, and Bcc addresses. It's not ideal but it does the job of being able to fake the sender's email address from Swit...
