Re: EXIF Tools and spaces

And thank you, Lasse, for the tip about using the tag rather than the filed-list. That makes it a lot easier when rearranging the metadata fields in the Submit point :)

Re: EXIF Tools and spaces

I kind of expected the solution to come from you, Jan :) Thanks a lot. Actually the problem was not only spaces but also special characters like the Danish æ, ø and å, but this solutions solves it all. It works perfect!

Re: EXIF Tools and spaces

Hi Lasse,

Double quotes are not accepted and this -Creator=[Metadata.Text:Path="//field[tag='Fotograf']/value",Dataset="Submit",Model="XML"] "%1" still returns only the first name :?

Re: EXIF Tools and spaces

I'm not quite sure exactly where to place the single quotes, but I tried a lot of different possibilities and it returns either nothing at all or the first name with a single quote in front ('Peter).

EXIF Tools and spaces

I have a Switch flow with a Submit Point. I want to upload images and type the name of the photographer in a metadata field in the Submit Point. The image then go to an Execute Command element, where EXIFTool is used to put the name into the IPTC tag called "creator". If I type a photographer name w...

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.
