Re: Inject complete folder with XML files

what if you mapped this location as a network location rather than a fixed drive, and then used the UNC path to it ??

Re: Add fixed length numerical value as Private Data or suffix

Ahhh I see. So in order to get that you'd need the following Regex: ^(.*)(-)(\d{1})(.[^.]+)$ and the substitution would be: \1\20\3\4 where the 0 between \2 and \3 makes it 2-digit. If 3 digits needed, then two 0s need to be put in place. If you had 2 digits there, then the regex would be: ^(.*)(-)(...

Re: Add fixed length numerical value as Private Data or suffix

So from this string example - P123456_1_flying-elephant-100x70-1.pdf
Which element / block indicates the single digit number, or double digit number or - if applicable (a 3digit) that requires changing ??

Re: Assembling a split and ungrouped job

Have you tried to sort files before the merge using the SORT FILES configurator ?? Worth a try. Alternatively - a new app has just been released, named - Folder Apps (comes free of charge). One of the little tools it offers is: "File Property Sort" puts files inside a job folder in a certain alphabe...

Re: Rename Job - add text after number of characters

1. Rename Job -> Search & Replace

Search For Regular Expression (\d{10})(.*)

Replace with: \1-hd-\2

- edit -
I assumed the first 10 characters are numbers. But should that not be the case, the RegEx to search for shall be:

(.{10})(.*)

Replacement is the same: \1-hd-\2

Re: Switch 2018 u2 update WARNING!!!!!!!

We also seem to be having an issue with 2018 updt 2. It's been running quicker to its predecessor, but there were drawbacks anyway. It has been crashing on a daily basis - Switch Script Executor crash, most likely due to some memory leak which gets system memory used to 98%. Everything crashes then....

Re: Apply leading zero to PageCount 1-9

This can be armed with RegEx to find out whether your numbering is already DoubleDigit to not add 0 and make it 3digits if this by any chance is not what you need :)

[FEATURE REQUEST] Merge PDF with bookmarks based on input filename

As in the Subject Line; I would greatly appreciate an extended functionality to Merging PDFs with automatic bookmarks creation based on the filename (subsequently pointing to the first page of each respective document that was an individual PDF element that is merged). At the moment - what we are ge...

external app to merge PDFs with bookmarks

Dear Switch Users - looking for your recommendation for a tool / software that would allow for merging hundreds of PDFs in one go (hundreds of megabytes) building bookmarks from the input filenames. The native MERGE element does not offer this functionality. So far I have been using PDF Combine PRO ...

Re: How to deal with case sensitive extensions ??

This is what I also did - replace with lowercase pdf.
There seems to be nothing else that would sort it out, since it is more of a Java Script being case sensitive.

Re: MS Word configurator

Hi; Thank you very much for this. I need to test it and see how it works, as it is not so much about processing a ready folder with hundreds or thousands of Word Docs, as about individual ones, which cue up in the standard Word configurator, when processed on "per file" basis. So if I have lets say ...

How to deal with case sensitive extensions ??

I have just come across a situation where Switch showed that file extensions are case sensitive. I have a rename element which stores OriginalName in PD, which then in turn is to be used for Assembling the job further down the line. And it occured that *.PDF is not the same thing as *.pdf. Referenci...
