Scan files for metadata without moving them

This is currently at an idea level and since i am a beginner I thought i'll ask here, if this is even possible. I have a customer folder which has files in them. Some files (not all) have a private data tag added to them in a previous workflow. When production planning starts i would like to scan fi...

Re: Warning level connection for Illustrator element for missing fonts

Thanks! The solution i came up with is a little different. It works, but i am not sure if this is the best way. Not sure why should I separate log from the AI file as you described. First 2 Illustrator elements have "Fail jobs with unavailable fonts" set to "Yes". Both outgoing connections are set t...

Warning level connection for Illustrator element for missing fonts

I use Illustrator files that sometimes have fonts that are not available on my Switch. I want the Illustrator element to give out(and log into metadata) a warning of the missing fonts but still successfully process the file via a custom script. A few problems arise with this: 1. The illustrator elem...

That error is not normal, we'll check with the dev team.

If you use a script to save the file as pdf, you could first check the fonts in the script as well.
It only fails when i use a script in the Command part of the illustrator element. If i remove it, the Fail fonts script works.

Re: Check for missing fonts

If a font is not embedded in the pdf, PitStop can report that. But if the missing font in Illustrator was substituted by a default one that is correctly embedded in the pdf, PitStop can not report that. If you know the name of that default font and never use it anywhere else, you can report this wi...

Check for missing fonts

We print our PDFs on the server with Illustrator. Sometimes fonts are used that are not installed on the server. This means that the text is output to the pdf with the default font. Is there a way to identify this error with pitstop? I tried checking for embed/unembed fonts, but i don't get no error...

Re: Using 2 different Switches for illustrator

Are you sure you set the folder constraints on the outgoing connections? Put the connections after Local and Remote on hold and place 5 input jobs in the input folder. The folders should each get 1 job and there should be 3 jobs waiting before "Hold job". Release one of the two connection and see w...

There is no need to set a target folder and the second Hold job element is not necessary. This is the principle:

Made the fixes. Switch still keeps sending jobs cyclically between the two connections.

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...

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....

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...
