Re: Priority of using Illustrator flow element

You could use the Hold Job element to distribute files between the two flows. On the connection to folder B you can define a Folder Constraint and only allow files to go to this folder, when folder A i empty. You can then use the app Switch2Switch to send files from A and B to the different flows.

Re: Calculate amount

Just for your information, I solved this using Jan's app called "Take Note". With this app I can add a specific dataset unique to each Submit Point and still keep the dataset "Submit_1", which is the same for all Submit Points. After assembling the files I then end up with metadata containing the da...

Re: Calculate amount

@ Jan. As mentioned giving the datasets different names is not an option because the Data set name is later used to add text to a PDF. If the Submit Points have different names I would need to make different variable sets for every Submit Point and as there will be maybe 50 different Submit Points, ...

I have 8 to 10 dummy-files coming in from different Submit Points, that submits data only. Each of these files contain a metadata tag, that is an amount selected from at drop-down in the Submit point. I need to make a calculation that adds the numbers in the tag "amount" from all thes files. I have ...

Re: SQL statement to update boolean field

Well, it turned out that 0 and 1 indeed were the triggers to use, so I finally got this statement to turn the check box on:

UPDATE Webshop
SET Produktionsklar=1
WHERE OrdreID='[Metadata.Text:Path="/Impleo_JobTransaction/TopOrderID",Dataset="Xml",Model="XML"]'

Re: Get print size from PDF's name?

You could use a Regular Expression to extract the part of the filename you need and write these into Private Data. Then use the Private Data as your variable.

Re: SQL statement to update boolean field

Hi Jan,

Sorry for my late response.

These were my first thought too, but none of them seems to work.

SQL statement to update boolean field

I'm using the database module of Switch to update an Access database, which works just fine. However, the database has a boolean field (a checkbox). Any idea what would be the sql statement to toggle that field?

UPDATE Webshop (Produktionsklar)
VALUES ('????')

Re: Select Dieline and Convert to spot

Ahh, you might need a PitStop Pro to do this. Apparently you can't create a new spot color from within PitStop Server. I wasn't aware of that :roll:
You can however create the action in PitStop Pro and run it in PitStop Server.

Re: Select Dieline and Convert to spot

You can change 100 % Magenta to "Knife" in PitStop as well. Use the Remap Color Action.

Re: Updating file triggers flow

I think you should make your Illustrator input as a Submit Hierarchy. As you mention, set "Ignore updates: No" and "Leave originals in place: Yes". This way you will only get a copy of an Illustrator file each time there is an update or a new file. Use the copy of the AI file to trigger the injectio...

Re: Trim box and bleed

I'm not sure but I think what you are referring to is the media box. If you want the media box to be the same size at the bleed box just add "Change media box to bleed box size" at the end of the action.

Re: Checkpoint pushing metadata forward

Are you aware that unless you have changed the default you will get two different "Data set names" from Submit Point and Check Point? If you look for the External Metadata Dataset you will have one called "Submit" and one called "Check".
