Re: Variable Data - wrap text

That is a much needed feature! Until then a workaround could be to use variables. If you know, that there is room for maybe 20 characters pr. line, you could define character 1-20 of the sentence as one variable and character 21-40 as another variable and then place the second variable beneath the f...

Re: Save as PDF 1.3

PitStop has an action to change the PDF version. However, it can change the version to 1.3 BUT it doesn't flatten the transparency. When using PitStop via Switch there is an option in the PitStop Server properties to flatten transparency. The combination of these two facilities should do the trick.

Re: Random Spot Colors - Convert to CMYK

You just write exactly as Ben suggest :-)

The regular expression to use is:

PANTONE.*

This will select any color which name starts with PANTONE

Re: Create interactive PDF with hyperlinks

Adding hyperlinks to a PDF is a standard functionality in Acrobat, but I'm not quite sure what you mean, when you say "a PDF with various webpages"? In order to automate any process the URLs will of course need to be available somewhere.

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, ...

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.
