Re: Using 2 different Switches for illustrator

It depends how you transfer the jobs to the other Switch and what it is that is not running. If you drop the job in a local folder that is a remote folder for the other Switch, the job will be stuck in that folder. As it is stuck "Hold job" will route all the other jobs to the other local instance....

Re: Using 2 different Switches for illustrator

When you add 2 outgoing connections to "Hold job" Switch will send 1 job here, 1 job there, 1 job here, etc. In this way the number of jobs will be equally split over the outgoing connections. That is not always the best choice because not all jobs take equally long. To make it a bit more intellige...

Using 2 different Switches for illustrator

Using only one Illustrator is sometimes not enough. Since i have 2 Switches, is it possible to use the other one for Illustrator also? Is there a way to send files to the other illustrator only when the first one is busy? Or should i just start adding a counter to the metadata and sending odd number...

Re: Using multiple checkpoints via email in flows

Using multiple Checkpoint via mail elements using the same account can work because each element only takes the mails that are relevant for itself. It is possible that a problem occurs when both elements are accessing the mail box at the same time. When they try again the next time it will probably...

Re: Printing PDFs with Illustrator + Adobe PDF printer

I can only guess that you must have added that folder to the $outfiles array before you push the C: drive folder. The fact that the push works proves that $outfiles exists as an array, but without seeing the code it is impossible to say what is in there. But you have not answered my question why it...

Re: Printing PDFs with Illustrator + Adobe PDF printer

Why do you want to print to PDF, rather than export? Consider that printing causes the output to pass via Postscript, so flattening can take place. Printing to a folder that is not known by the Switch element is of course going to generate the error message that the expected output result is not fo...

IJT could not be opened: '00021.ijt'

I made a duplicate flow to my second Switch installment and i am running a part of it at the same time as the first installment. On some occasions i get the following error IJT could not be opened: '00021.ijt' IJT could not be opened: '0001Z.ijt' etc, for about 20 different warnings of the same type...

Illustrator file with metadata is inserted into Illustrator element 2. A script makes the PDFs using Adobe PDF printer( multiple from one ...

Re: Ai file loses color profile after processing.

The empty script worked for me, but it is certainly more logical to add the line: $outfiles = [$infile]; //or if you already have other paths on the $outfiles array: $outfiles.push($infile); to tell Switch that the input file is actually (one of) the output file(s). This also worked for me, thanks!

Flow design efficiency

I hope this goes under Flows. I'll try my best to explain my question. When designing flows, does using multiple of the same element change the speed of at which Switch processes flows? Example: I have 4 different job assemblers. I am using 2 recycle bins for them to send errors to be deleted. ( 2re...

Re: Moving big files

Submit filespec does not allow to use network folders. Can you please explain how to run XML files through another submit hierarchy? When i try to use the same submit hierarchy twice, the ai file is moved to problem jobs. Maybe it's simpler just to move the xml and ai to separate folders with my scr...

Re: Moving big files

Changing the minimum file solves the big file problem, but creates another one. I also have xml files coming into that folder, which sometimes are smaller than 1kb. If i set the submit hierachy with minimum file size 1kb, the xml files are not picked up.

Moving big files

I have a submit hierachy point to which a script copies illustrator files. 95% of the time the files are small size 10-30mb. but sometimes we have files that are up to 1gb. In those cases, switch moves the file before it has been fully copied to the folder and causes an error. When moving big files,...

Using postscript with Pitstop Server

Is it possible to convert postscript files to PDF with pitstop server?

My workflow currently is: postscript file is converted to pdf via distiller > Pitstop Server PDF2image.

Can i skip distiller and send postscript directly to Pitstop?
