Re: Is there way to have Switch place a file in Indesign?

Within Indesign we create a artboard +3in to the art size on the width and height, Example: the art is 72"x48", create new doc, 72"+3 and 48"3. Then a frame is created 72+.125" and 48+.125 for bleed at the trim size. The artwork is then placed and scaled proportionally.

Re: Is there way to have Switch place a file in Indesign?

Can you elaborate more on this plug in? I have Acrobat DC but not Pitstop Pro. We use Pitstop server as a team with the drop and pickup folders that I build. Thank you for your help.

Re: ReBranding preflight report

Is the "ServerReportDefault.pdf" file deep inside the folder structure? I have my machine looking for it. So If I understand this correctly, basically create a PDF and replace it with naming convention will create a branded report for our customers?

Is this correct?

Die line, thru-cuts, CutContour, ContourCut Does the list ever stop!!!!

When I am creating an action to remove die lines, do I list them with a comma seperating them or do I create multiple actions, one action per name?

Add bleed from contour cut line and move die line to another layer.

I understand cut/die/cutcontour and other spots can be found based on exact naming properties. Is there a way to add bleed from a contour cut line and then move the die line to new layer? Our prep time could be cut using only pitstop and acrobat layer properties if this possible. Thank you for any i...
