Re: How to move files from one folder to another

Yes it worked. Thank you very much! In looking at the individual modules I can't see how it knows to move into the appropriate Letter folder. Where does it say to "move to folder A". Just want to understand where in the Flow it says to do that. Thank you!

Re: How to move files from one folder to another

I need Switch to "Look" in an existing folder (this is where the file(s) I want to move reside) and by using the first letter in the filename, MOVE (not copy) that file to a new folder (which is a list of folders from A to Z). So I will need Switch to constantly "look" in the folder and then when a ...

I have done a search for these files and have deleted the files from the Switch server machine but they are still showing up as being "processed". Where do these files exist and how can I clear th...

Rename Job

I want to do a simple task and yet there doesn't seem to be a simple way to do it! I have a file that I want to process for our production and then RENAME. The way I want to rename is to keep only the last seven characters (to the left of the extension) and delete the rest of the filename. (eg FOM_I...

Using Document Info to Scale

I want to develop a Flow that will scale all files processed to 10 percent of final size output. Our RIP will be setup to process all files with a scaling coefficient of 10.00 (1000 percent) so ALL files submitted to our RIP hotfolders from Switch need to be at 10 percent of final size. Any insight ...

Re: Page Scaling

If it doesn't need to be applied and the RIP does it for you then what is it doing there? I work in a grand format environment and work with reduced file size all the time. To be able to "tag" an image with a scaling component would be desireable. What I don't understand is PitStop is TELLING me tha...
