Re: Best way to delete files in a folder older then X?

Hi Magnus,

You can use the Inject tool to pickup files and send them to Trash.

Re: Using Switch for automatic OCR recognition?

Have you tried the property "Merge Metadata" and set it to Yes in the Assemble job.

Re: Sending Printjobs to network printers

You could probably do it with a .BAT or Shellscript file. Use the App Execute Command Friend to create such a file and then let Execute Command run it. With that app you could build up your command with Switch variables.

Re: Sending Printjobs to network printers

What Ralf suggests uses the Execute Command element in Switch.

You'll see when you add it to the flow.

Re: Automating print to pdf to make separations

I suppose you have PitStop Server with your Switch and then you can create a Action List that deletes all object except the ones with a specific color name. You have to setup different branches in the flow, one for each color you want to keep and in that way you will accomplish your task. It require...

Re: Select a file from the beginning of a flow

Well can't you let the first file create the record and the second update that record?

Re: Select a file from the beginning of a flow

Branch of to one folder before the pdfToolbox element and then from that folder back to the folder before the script, then both the PDf and the TXT will be going in to the script. In the script you have to pick up both the PDF and the TXT file.

Re: Select a file from the beginning of a flow

You have to branch out before the text conversion so you get a copy of the PDF. Then you can upload that one.

The PDF you convert to text is sent to null after the conversion.

Re: How to calculate Ratio for multiple numbers in JS?

If all jobs are the same you can use an App for that to combine the files into a factor of the number of prints for each job. The App in question is Duplicate Pages PRO. In the example below, the green and magenta jobs are 300 and the yellow is 200 and you print 100 sheets. In the flow you upload th...

Re: Import XML into an Indesign Template

I think it is better to do it the other way around. Let the InDesign file come to the InDesign configurator in the flow. Then in InDesign you use this script. var Name_Of_File = $arg1; $doc.importXML( File(Name_Of_File) ); Argument 1 in the properties is: /Path to the folder/XML_to_indesign/[Job.Nam...

Re: Import XML into Indesign to convert to PDF

You need the following JavaScript in the InDesign configurator property Command Then as Argument 1 you specify the name of the XML file. The incoming jobb to InDesign is the InDesign template file and the XML is easiest picked up from a folder where Switch stored it. var NameOfFile = $arg1; $doc.imp...
