Re: How to avoid overwriting IPTC data when using XMP inject?

If you want to add to the existing data just use the existing data as a variable to insert before the new value.

Example:
If the existing dc.subject is "London" and you want to keep that, but add "United Kingdom" the variable to insert would be:
[Metadata.Text:Path="dc:subject/*[1]"], United Kingdom

Re: First page empty after "reorder pages"

Maybe you should use a "Normalize page boxes" after you changed the size of the page boxes?

Re: Flow to merge a template with a page from a multi page pdf

If you ungroup a folder containing the split PDF, you do not get a folder for each PDF. You get individual PDF files. If you use these individual PDFs to inject the template they only work as triggers, so you end up with the template alone, and the original PDF is gone. You need to copy the split PD...

Re: PitStop not selecing RGB elements

It's probably because you are selecting objects that have BOTH fill and stroke in the chosen color space. If an object has fill but no stroke or visa versa, it won't be selected. You will need to divide it in to two parts in your action, selecting objects that has RGB fill OR objects that has RGB st...

CSV as unicode

I need to convert an incoming CSV-file to a Unicode format. It's easily done by opening in a text-editor and save as. Any ideas how to automate this?

Re: Running action every second page

Felix, you will need to make the selection of pages part of your action. In the action first make a selection of pages (every second page or all odd or all even pages) before doing the color conversion. Then run this entire action in Pitstop Server.

Re: ImageMagick with Execute Command Arguments

Thank you, Jan.

Strange however, since the Tiff-file only contains one layer. It is named "Layer 1" rather than just "Background", which might be the reason?

ImageMagick with Execute Command Arguments

I hope someone can explain to me how this works with Execute Command. I have made a simple flow that converts Tiff-files with an AdobeRGB profile to sRGB JPG. I'm using ImageMagick and Execute Command in Switch. It all works fine when using this Argument: "%1[0]" -profile "C:/WINDOWS/System32/spool/...

Re: Delete non-pdf files from assembled job?

Add the folder name to Private Data as FolderName=[Job.Name] and use that as the variable to name the folder in the Assemble Job.

Re: Define bleedbox after add bleed and cropmarks

Are you using an older version of PitStop since you are creating cropmarks by adding eight different lines instead of "Add page box marks" and not using the add bleed function? Here is an action that adds bleed, cropmarks, bleed marks and correctly sets the bleed box. It is set to add 3 mm bleed. Yo...

Re: File renaming

In the "Rename Job" element you have the option "Reduce character set" in it you can set the "Allowed character set" to "Portable ASCII" and that will give what you want. It will replace å, ä and ö with Underscore, Space or remove the not allowed characters. Jan Suhr, this will definitely remove or...

Re: File renaming

Terkelsen, your regex worked in online regex testers for me, that made me believe it was something specific to the engine used in Switch. Then I checked the regular expression part of the Switch documentation and that's how I found what was wrong :) http://www.enfocus.com/manuals/UserGuide/SW/18/en...

Re: File renaming

Hmm, this RegEx

[^[a-zA-Z0-9_]]*

is supposed to find everything but a-z, A-Z, 0-9 and _

However, I've tried to use it with the Rename element for Search & Replace, but for some reason it doesn't seem to work :-/

Re: keeping the Hierarchy info in generated PDFs

Jan Suhrs advice would be the obvious choice but if you don't have the metadata module you might be able to use the hierarchy info to add a specific prefix to the file names using Rename. You could then assemble based on that prefix and later use rename to remove the prefix again.
