Re: PDFTK does not output PDFs in Switch unless manual folder scan is invoked

I shall report that the suggested amendments did the job and indeed it works as expected. Which on the other hand I am finding strange, since we've been using PDFTK in our flows for the last 3 years and it never worked with "%2" for the output, yet it always did with a fixed path, as exampled earlie...

Re: PDFTK does not output PDFs in Switch unless manual folder scan is invoked

Will check that later. I chose a defined path however as the "%2" never worked for me....
Will report after the changes.
Interesting though....

PDFTK does not output PDFs in Switch unless manual folder scan is invoked

Hello clever heads :) I am experiencing an annoying issue with PDFTK server, which seems it does not output PDFs to a folder of choice, unless I go Scan Folders Now manually from the right-click in Switch. Until then, no PDF is produced..... Anyone had anything like that ?? The command is fairly sim...

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.
