Re: Split very large PDF

Hi Jan, Yes, the stupid thing is that this is actually just a two page PDF with a variable number, a name and an address on page 1, but the customer insist on delivering this as a 100.000 pages PDF :roll: Excuse my ignorance but what would the argument you suggest look like as an argument in Switch ...

Re: Split very large PDF

Hi Jan,

No, but I've tried ImageMagick and after two hours it's still working to just split a 100 page PDF.

Any idea what the argument should look like in Execute Command if I use PDFtk?

Split very large PDF

One of my customers is receiving on a regular basis a PDF containing 100.000 pages :!: for printing. Yes, I know it is insane but that's how their customer insist to deliver. I'm not surprised that their RIP is giving up on this job trying to feed the printer with 800 pages pr. minute. They have fou...

Re: Merge 2 single pages to a double page

You can even use the method that Malcom suggest without the need of PDFTK. After resizing the two pages cut or copy the content of P1, paste it into P2 and delete P1.

Re: Optical recognition character

I'm almost sure that ABBYY FineReader has a hotfolder functionality and therefore can be integrated with Switch.

Reg Ex help

I could use a little help with a regular expression. The string I'm searching looks like this: "word1 word2 word3Number_number_1234". I need everything until (but NOT including) the last underscore. This regEx .*\_ will give me everything until and including the last underscore "word1 word2 word3Num...

Re: Insert different logos

I already created the solution using Switch and Pitstop ;) The logos are converted to PDF. The 16 page PDF is injected and the two files are merged with the logo as page 1. An action in Pitstop will select page 1 and scale it to the desired size. The action then cuts page one and paste the content i...

Re: Insert different logos

You are absolutely right about this being a variable data job. It just came to my mind that I could turn things around and use the logos (converted to PDF) as the input and the 16 page PDF as the constant that is injected in Switch. This way I can use the method I mentioned where the two PDFs are me...

Insert different logos

I have one 16-page PDF file with a specific logo placed on the front and the back page in a specific location. I need to make 100 variants of this PDF each with a different logo in these two locations. Both Switch and PitStop Server will be available. Using "Add copied graphic" in Pitstop would requ...

Re: Scripting with InDesign - Remove Pasteboard & Re-Link Files

I fully agree with Jan Suhr that this would be so much easier to do in Pitstop. However, you will need at PDF to send to PitStop Server. It will never accept an indd-file as input. All you need is to use the InDesign configurator to create a PDF that will then be sent to PitStop. The InDesign config...

Re: Removing the extension when using the %Current Document Name%

Yes it can be done in a combination of PitStop Server and Switch. Create a Variable set in PitStop Server with a single variable of the type Constant->Text.
In the PitStop Configurator in Switch change that type to "Text with variables" and use [Job.NameProper] as the variable value.

Re: Acrobat Pro Configurator - "save As" PDF to PowerPoint

You could buy the AutoBatch Plugin from Evermap https://www.evermap.com/AutoBatch.asp. It will let you save an action from Acrobat as at Batch-file, which you can then use in Switch with Execute Command Tool. No scripting required.

Re: search by date and moves

I haven't testede it, but I think that is what the File pool Cleanup app is for. It's part of the free Folder App (https://www.enfocus.com/en/appstore/product/folder-apps)
