Re: Sort Layers by Name in PDF

Freddy, this sounds like something I could use, however I am getting message:
"App 'Split PDF layers' cannot be loaded because it is not signed correctly"
It does not load into apps.

Re: Splitting PDF files

Thing that comes to my mind is try Pdftk, but I doubt it will work.
Another thing is maybe to try to split file in two, than those two in 4, etc.. again, not sure if it would help.
If you post the file, maybe someone can try different approach?

Re: Grab mail address from PDF

How I would do it is convert PDF into txt file (I usually use Xpdf instead of Acrobat to do this job), than use Javascript to read file and pull email address, probably with Regular Expression. Once you pull this email you can set it as private data and do whatever you want with it, including sendin...

Re: Extracting metadata from an excel

Not to hijack the thread, but might be helpful for GIlmore as well, Loic how would you pick with Xpath all "Impressions" from this XML: ---- <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <Log> <DataSource>lmerp</DataSource> <SQLStatement>SELECT * FROM ProductionJobInfo WHERE SwitchReadStatus = 1 And ERPJob...

Re: Insert a page to a pdf

Not sure if it does not have variable, however there might be creative solution. From top of my head... e.g. depending on your flow and needs, in your action you could specify static name (static.pdf) and location of PDF to be inserted. Each time you need to insert different PDF, you take that diffe...

Re: Find and remove lost/stuck files

I often have files "stuck" in folder, usually before Pitstop configurator that I can not delete. If I go into task manager and kill pitstop processor, it let's me delete file from flow. You are probably having same/similar issue, not sure what is the culprit in your case. Sometimes just stopping the...

Re: How to remove Form?

Thanks for trying Padawan. The reason being is these die files are than sent to vendor who does the actual Die for us. This vendor has some ancient equipment and files need to be perfect, without anything in them. I guess if software finds any lines even empty, it thinks it is cut. I'll run it by En...

Re: How to remove Form?

Sure, here is one example.
If you look in wireframe mode, you will see that dieline is part of a large form.

How to remove Form?

This is not interactive form element. I am talking about form in PDF that usually have one or more objects combined. There is an action "Put Selection in Form" I want opposite of "Put Selection in Form", something like select content and remove form, or remove container of the form and leave content...

Re: Report Language not Available in SWITCH 17.1 (PitStop Element)

I would try bringing in fresh Pitstop Server Configurator, it fixed similar issue for me.
If that does not fix it it, I would try reinstalling (repair option) Pitstop Server.
If that fails, call support.

Re: Outdated links to Crossroads send me in circles

Would it be possible to pull old archive of Crossroads and make it available online so people can extract actions, etc.. before shutting it down again?
I am sure we would even have volunteers to extract and make available to everyone useful scripts, etc..

Re: Changing specific spot colours to CMYK and leaving some spot colours

I am sorry but this does not look like Pitstop to me.
It looks like regular "Convert Color" tools in Acrobat which has nothing to do with Pitstop and your upgrade??

Most likely you upgraded Acrobat and you are seeing upgraded interface.

Re: Move files between different flows?

It will work and while you can "roll your own", I would strongly suggest using Portals by Dominick.
It is free and works great.
I redesigned several of my "out of control" flows into neat groups of several small flows.
