Re: Rename Job by Regular Expression

You must understand that Action 1 is carried out before Action 2. This means that Action 1 will change the name of "B412344_26.pdf" to "B412344_p006.pdf. When Action 2 is run, the first character after the underscore is no longer a digit (it's "p") and Action 2 will do nothing: I'm not an expert in ...

Re: Preflight report, error + fix

I don't think it has to be that complicated. Just make an action list like this. Select all Check RGB color is not used for any object Remap Color (make sure to remap both RGB Space, CalRGB Space and ICC tagged space to CMYK) This will give you a report that logs the use of RGB as an error and the r...

Re: Reducing bleed on one object only

I think the easiest thing to do would be to create an action that selects and deletes the object and then paste a new object with the desired size.

Re: Portal Check in for Errors

I'm not sure if I understand you right, but if I do, this could be a solution. Send a copy of the error-file to another folder. Use that folder to ad an error message to the files private data. In the checkpoint create a metadata field that presents the message from private data as a read only field.

Re: How can Xml Pickup handle multiple jobs with only 1 xml?

You just need to assemble the job and use "Metadata in job folder asset" as the pick up mode. If you send a folder containing one xml and several PDFs to Xml Pickup the xml will be picked up by all files in the folder.

Re: Ungroup timeout

If it is actually the Ungroup process that takes that long, you will need to change: Preferences -> Error handling -> Abort processes after (minutes)

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...
