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

You could save a pdf and then using Acrobat and PitStop Pro plugin - you can create an action to do this.

Re: Using Switch Developer Mode

We do have both licenses for Switch; Production & Developer and they are on two separate machines.
How do I test the flows on the Developer side when I have Metadata entered through Client (web submit)?
Thanks!

Re: Using Switch Developer Mode

We do have both licenses. When I have metadata to input - how do I do that when I am unable to use client?

Re: Using Switch Developer Mode

I can access Switch Client but when I want to test the flows I have created in Developer mode they don't show up in our Client. I have been told that Developer mode and the Production machine need to be separate.

Using Switch Developer Mode

Re: Actions & Preflights

You could "flatten layers preserve look". That should help with the extra layers.

How to reset the counter to 00001?

I have a flow that I am renaming (adding prefix, replacing the Filename proper, and adding a sufix using the counter), but would like to reset the numbering back to 00001. How do I do this? Thank you!

Select Page Please Help

When I try to use Select Page in any way it isn't working. We are currently using PitStop Pro 2020. Is there an issue with the upgrade. I have tried different documents, different flows. We even tried to reinstall PitStop Pro. See my flow below.

Gradient - Convert to CMYK

I have a file that I would like to use an action for. It is a gradient with mixed Spot & Process Colors, when I use the "Convert Color to CMYK" it changes the overall 'look' of the gradient. I have tried flattening it, saving it as a .ps file and then distilling it. This doesn't work either, it conv...
