Re: Align selected objects To the middle of the page

Indeed, that's not really going to help.
We need Align and Distribute that we have in the Inspector as Actions!

Re: Next additions to the BoardingPass pre-release

Thanks Karsten
As there are only two options at the moment we didn't bother with import/export
but as more options are added it definitely becomes more important

Re: Align selected objects To the middle of the page

Change position is probably the Action you need.

So:
Select object in Region (configured as required)
Change Position (configured as required)

Re: Next additions to the BoardingPass pre-release

Hi Xavi

Showing the ink values with an eyedropper or mouse over is a good idea.

Overprint should be fully supported, so if you see anything wrong, then it's a bug.
Can you let us know if you find anything like that please.

Report anything to: Boardingpass.prerelease@enfocus.com

Re: automated Table of Contents from Bookmarks

Sorry, there's no way to do that in PitStop. Or at least not yet.

Re: add metadata

Hi Xavi
Hope you are well and keeping safe.

There isn't a way to update the XMP metadata with PitStop itself.
What you could do is add keywords to the document properties/Info.

You can find that in the preflight profile > Document section > 'Info: Keyword' at the bottom of the set of options

Re: Die line, thru-cuts, CutContour, ContourCut Does the list ever stop!!!!

In Action Lists you'll need to add a 'Select' for each and every layer name. You'll also have to add the appropriate amount of "OR's" to indicate that the action should work if any of the layers are found. Be aware though you need a different selection, you don't want the layer. you want the objects...

Re: Preflight to check if specific spot color exists

Yes, the important thing is to get the spot color names in to the XML report, then Switch can use them.

In Switch you can also see document spot colors in the "Define Text with variables' > Stats > Colorants >

But you need a sample PDF in the flow, on hold, to see any in the interface.

Right Action List, wrong configuration.

You need to click on 'Select Spot Color by Name' and then scroll down to 'Select Spot Color name from list'
Then you can add a separate spot color name per line.

Re: conditional Action List course of action

It's not possible in PitStop Pro at the moment.
Something to work on for the future.

To be honest if you are going to get it down to 'one click'
You might as we investigate going the whole distance and remove the 'click' as well. :D

Did you ever look at completely automating the process?

Re: Transitioning to Switch from PitStop Server?

Just a note here that the key word here is 'transition'. We are in the transition to the new PitStop Server, and one of the reasons for this transition is to iron out any potential issues. If you think you can't do some thing with the Switch Core that you can with the standard PitStop Server, can yo...

Re: conditional Action List course of action

Potentially yes. There is a way to trigger Action Lists, and that's to add them to a Preflight Profile, and then turn them on and off with a Boolean variable. The challenge will be to trigger that Boolean variable in PitStop Pro. One of the problems is that the fixes happen before the checks, and th...
