Re: Insert different logos

I already created the solution using Switch and Pitstop ;) The logos are converted to PDF. The 16 page PDF is injected and the two files are merged with the logo as page 1. An action in Pitstop will select page 1 and scale it to the desired size. The action then cuts page one and paste the content i...

Re: Insert different logos

You are absolutely right about this being a variable data job. It just came to my mind that I could turn things around and use the logos (converted to PDF) as the input and the 16 page PDF as the constant that is injected in Switch. This way I can use the method I mentioned where the two PDFs are me...

Insert different logos

I have one 16-page PDF file with a specific logo placed on the front and the back page in a specific location. I need to make 100 variants of this PDF each with a different logo in these two locations. Both Switch and PitStop Server will be available. Using "Add copied graphic" in Pitstop would requ...

Re: Scripting with InDesign - Remove Pasteboard & Re-Link Files

I fully agree with Jan Suhr that this would be so much easier to do in Pitstop. However, you will need at PDF to send to PitStop Server. It will never accept an indd-file as input. All you need is to use the InDesign configurator to create a PDF that will then be sent to PitStop. The InDesign config...

Re: Removing the extension when using the %Current Document Name%

Yes it can be done in a combination of PitStop Server and Switch. Create a Variable set in PitStop Server with a single variable of the type Constant->Text.
In the PitStop Configurator in Switch change that type to "Text with variables" and use [Job.NameProper] as the variable value.

Re: Acrobat Pro Configurator - "save As" PDF to PowerPoint

You could buy the AutoBatch Plugin from Evermap https://www.evermap.com/AutoBatch.asp. It will let you save an action from Acrobat as at Batch-file, which you can then use in Switch with Execute Command Tool. No scripting required.

I haven't testede it, but I think that is what the File pool Cleanup app is for. It's part of the free Folder App (https://www.enfocus.com/en/appstore/product/folder-apps)

Not sure what you are looking for. You can open the .doc file in Word and save it as PDF.

Re: how to assemble two files

If it is always that simple, you can use this job identifier:

[Job.NameProper:Segment="1-4"]

Re: Submit point user to email

When defining a user in Switch you can also set the users e-mail address.

That information will show up as the variable Job -> UserEmail

Re: How to avoid overwriting IPTC data when using XMP inject?

Apparently there is a bug that prevents my suggested solution from working on Windows. It works fine on Mac, where the injected XMP data is added to the existing. On Windows, however, the existing data is not preserved and only the newly added data will be visible. It has been reported to Enfocus su...

Re: How to avoid overwriting IPTC data when using XMP inject?

If you want to add to the existing data just use the existing data as a variable to insert before the new value.

Example:
If the existing dc.subject is "London" and you want to keep that, but add "United Kingdom" the variable to insert would be:
[Metadata.Text:Path="dc:subject/*[1]"], United Kingdom

Re: First page empty after "reorder pages"

Maybe you should use a "Normalize page boxes" after you changed the size of the page boxes?

Re: Flow to merge a template with a page from a multi page pdf

If you ungroup a folder containing the split PDF, you do not get a folder for each PDF. You get individual PDF files. If you use these individual PDFs to inject the template they only work as triggers, so you end up with the template alone, and the original PDF is gone. You need to copy the split PD...

Re: PitStop not selecing RGB elements

It's probably because you are selecting objects that have BOTH fill and stroke in the chosen color space. If an object has fill but no stroke or visa versa, it won't be selected. You will need to divide it in to two parts in your action, selecting objects that has RGB fill OR objects that has RGB st...
