Switch Task Hangups

Hi all - I've searched this topic and found a few threads but nothing really helped. I've noticed over the last 6 months or so we will have elements that have task that never completes. These are almost exclusively "Monitor" tasks. A lot of times it will just be a random folder, or even 'P...

Re: Bypass 'Hold job' with time window?

What if I duplicate the names of two folders? Do you mean within a switch flow like I mentioned with a file? If so, it's the same, they will both still keep the same name, but be identified as different by the unique prefix switch adds. When a folder/file leaves switch or goes to a auto managed fol...

Re: Griffin Step anf Repeat

I'm a Phoenix user and we automation around 90% of our WideFormat via Switch, and have been thinking more about Griffin due to the savings. I wish they would add some of these features that Phoenix has in Griffin, but I guess that's how they keep with the more expensive option, this is just another ...

Re: imposition

yes, it's for digital prints, but before purchasing any imposition software I was trying to use pitstop to make the montages but when I enable the crop marks this problem arises, and I haven't found any way to solve it. What RIP are you using on your digital machines? Reason I ask, both our Creo an...

Re: imposition

Personally I struggled with doing Imposition with PitStop. Out of curiosity, what RIP software do you use , I'm assuming these are for digital runs?

Re: overlaping stroks to line

Hello, we created a compose with few boxs with cutcountor with no gaps in between. Now the cutter is cutting each box by its own as well as cutting it twice, because it has an overlap of another box. I need a solution for combining all cutcontor stroks together that it cuts only once that is vertic...

Re: Sequential Numbering Action List

Hi Guys, It's great if our friend can eventually achieve this but we should provide some easier way maybe. Who would be interested in discussing what should be improved in numbering with PitStop. Any kind of numbering, not just page numbering. Let me know If you had the ability to add leading zeros...

Re: I want to use Switch Flow to delete folders and files

I tried to do this as well , but could only do it if I mounted the actual drive on the Switch sever from our FTP, then used a hold job, ultimately we moved to just a script that runs on the actual FTP sever that deletes files older than x number of days from the modified date. It was the easiest sol...

Re: Sequential Numbering Action List

I can add sequential numbers in 2 different ways in Pitstop. But cant work out how to add them to the odd pages only. Then on the odd pages they run in order.001 002 003 etc So Page 1 will be 001 Page 3 will be 002 Page 5 will be 003 Page 7 will be 004 All even pages will have no numbering I think ...

Re: Shapes as comments

It is a weird file. Because if I make a rectangle with the comment tool (as one of the other comments are), and then flatten annotations it is visible. But the ones made by your customer is not. Maybe share it with Enfocus. Because if it is regular annotations and it does not get flattened maybe it...

Are you allowed to share the file?

I can PM you the file, but I don't think I can post it publicly. I'll send it after this is posted.

I think it does what you need.
Thanks Jimmy,

I actually tried that, it just removes them vs keeping them in the file.
