Illustrator Fonts Package

So we have found an issue with Illustrator loading fonts from a package. It will only recognize the fonts from the package if Illustrator is closed and it opening the file fresh.

Folder Prefix

I am injecting a generic folder structure for all of our jobs. Occasionally we get folders that are prefixed with ".~#~" On the Mac these folders are invisible cause they start with a "."

Does anyone know why this happens and how I can correct it? It seems to only be happening in 1 flow on 1 server.

Re: HP SmartStream VDP

I figured out where my problem was. I had my templates folder on an external raid attached to the computer using it as a scratch disk. As soon as I pointed my templates folder to the local drive the configurator works as normal.

Thanks for all the input.

Re: HP SmartStream VDP

I have used this many times before, the Template and the CSV file are named correctly. InDesign launches but never runs the file. There are NO errors in the SWITCH messages.

If I use the same CSV file open it manually on the machine it will output the job with no problems.

Save as CS6 from CC

I am trying to make a quick "save as" flow to save down Creative Cloud Illustrator files to CS6. I am pretty close, if I replace the path to the Desktop for the destination file, it will resave my file to the desktop. I thought if I replaced it with the $outfolder, it would place it in the output fo...
