Re: Create InDesign Package

Hello together, thanks for that great script. I have expanded it with the function to produce of an IDML. But there is still one naming problem which I can't solve. The target INDD-file inside the output folder still has the individual job-prefix of Switch (unique name). The "Strip unique name" does...

How to quit an application (e.g. InDesign/Photoshop) after using in a flow

Hello everyone, is there the possibility to quit an Adobe application after a job has been completed? Examples are: a flow in which a PDF is created from InDesign or another flow in which an action is executed with Photoshop. In both cases, the programs remain open after the job is completed. Is it ...

Re: Performance Switch flows vs. PitStop Server hotfolder

Couple of points; Are you on the latest Switch 19 Fall? (Whatever Fall is !) There was some issue prior to that with Pitstop in switch not releasing the process. As it is when Switch is doing the PitStop work in the Progress window you should see how many files are being processed. See if closing t...

Re: Performance Switch flows vs. PitStop Server hotfolder

Hi Padawan, thanks for your answer. I have done a test in PitStop Server (standalone) and there are approx. 25 (!) concurrent processes. Transferring it in a simple calculation: 25 processes (PitStop) : 4 processes (Switch) = Faktor 6,25 In my first testcase there are ca. 500 PDFs with a size of 100...

Re: Performance Switch flows vs. PitStop Server hotfolder

Sorry, here is the value for Concurrent processing (4). I post a screenshot of the complete settings. Sorry for being in german. I hope you will understand. :? I wonder why lots of values differ from the defaults in the manual. For example "Release acquired slots after (minutes). Default should be 2...

Re: Performance Switch flows vs. PitStop Server hotfolder

We have the setting "0". That was the setting after installation. All available slots should be used. Although in the manual the value "1" is given as "Default". (see https://www.enfocus.com/manuals/UserGuide/SW/19.1/home.html#en-us/common/sw/reference/r_processing.html - Property: "Default number o...

Re: Performance Switch flows vs. PitStop Server hotfolder

We have a virtual machine (Win Server 2019) with Quad core and 16 GB RAM.

The Switch modules are Switch Core Engine, Configurator, Metadata and Switch Client Module.

I have changed the flows property "Allow advanced performance tuning" to "Yes" but with no effect.

Performance Switch flows vs. PitStop Server hotfolder

Hello together, have you had the same experience with the performance of switch flows compared to clean PitStop Server workflows? I have found that a switch-based PDF processing flow is slower than if the same functionality is only implemented with a PitStop Server hotfolder. Example: PitStop Server...

Re: "Assemble job" doesn't compose job from "Ungroup job"

Take a look at this post: https://forum.enfocus.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=3615#p10917 I solved the problem with leading zero with a regex-search/replace. Additionally I have to add a "p" at the beginning. I have put it in a Switch-"Rename"-element. Maybe it's not the smartest way but it works for us....

Re: Numbering files after pdf split

Update:

I have solved the problem with renaming and calculation.

001.pdf -> 2.pdf
002.pdf -> 4.pdf
003.pdf -> 6.pdf

I have done a calculation on the filename (*2). But then I loose the leading zeros.

Re: "Assemble job" doesn't compose job from "Ungroup job"

Hi Freddy, thank you so much - it works! I didn't know that "Automatic" meant the origin file number. Next I will give the PitStop Global Change a chance. But in the end we need single pages for the exchange workflow with the print supplier and in our preparation process there are different tasks fo...
