Re: Add appendix pdf after every page of letter pdf

Well - it can be automated with Quite Hot Folders. But I presume you do not have that one either.... We've been using Quite for years and it was a natural choice to keep things that way when we implemented Switch. But I understand not everyone has got it, in favour of other tools. Yet - this seemed ...

Re: Ungroup timeout

Ungroup Job is not for splitting PDF on a per page basis...
To do that, you'd need to use - Split PDF.

Ungroup "extracts" individual files from a job folder, so that they retain hierarchy, but can be processed individually.
Unless I do not know about some extra functionality of Ungroup....

Re: XSLT help

Have you had a chance to find out if the path to the nod you are referring to, resolved with a correct value in Switch ?? Navigate in Switch to "//order/jobs/job/job-name" of that XML and see if it is correct. If other paths to certain nodes are getting you the right result and they all are defined ...

Re: Portals failing after update to 4.0

The same thing happens when updating to 5.0. I have not had time to play around, but my first bet was to recreate the IN / OUT portals from scratch, giving them the same values as you already had. In our case it is almost a 100, so I reverted back to 3.0 as it was quicker than recreating those. But ...

Try to modify your arguments for %1 & %2 with fixed paths and switch arguments if needs be.

Re: CSV to xml

Not that I know of. The metadata module is merely for handling metadata, it is not a converter or creator. This can be achieved with additional tools in type of Switch apps or external 3rd party apps via the command line or hotfolders if applicable. There is plenty of 3rd party tools, that can get y...

Re: CSV to xml

there is an app for Switch that does exactly that. Converts CSV to XML, which you can then pick up and use the values that you need.

Pitstop discrepancies Preflight report vs Inspector

I am experiencing (not the first time) an odd Pitstop behaviour, where Inspector is showing different values than those that come from a preflight report. In particular - it is about image resolution / size. Below is an extract from the custom Preflight Profile that is run on the file Preflight_Basi...

Re: How to check on & filter PDFs password protected for OPENING

Hi Saitok; Thx for your proposed solution. It makes some sense as a standalone solution, but not really in our scenario / workflow, where the issue is encountered in the middle of a chain of 10 flows. As the locked document can be a part of few tens or hundreds of docs which make for the whole job a...

Re: Check if User Pass Protected for Opening

Hi Lasse;
I know it can be done this way.
But again this is something I would like to avoid, as our flows are basically designed the way that there is no routing out of ProblemJobs. So when a file lands there its definite and no routing out is allowed.
But I guess this may be inevitable here :-/
