variable builder random characters

My templates always end with two characters which are not available in metadata. They differ from order to order.

Is it possible to insert this into the variable builder? eg [Job.NameProper]--[two random characters]

Caldera flow elements. Posterprint imposition

Hello I hope this is the correct sub-forum to post this. Has anyone tried using Caldera in their flow? How up to date are these? We are considering testing Caldera and my main concern is that Caldera runs on Linux, and Switch runs on windows. Is it possible there could be some connectivity issues be...

Portals give warnings

Everytime something moves through portals, console logs the following warnings. The amount of files moved does not affect the amount of warnings. Is this something i should be worried about? The portals work as intented. Or should i consider using an alternative app for this? Portals scope is Program.

Re: Illustrator script error sometimes not defined

Granted, the documentation does not specify it specifically, but it seems logical that the content of $error has to be a string: $error = "error"; and on the next line it has to be $doc instead of doc. $status = "error"; should be correct then? not $error = "error"; ,based on your last sentence.

Re: Preflight to check if specific spot color exists

Is it possible to do this with 2 groups of spot colors, so that i could sort them by used colors later in switch?

Re: Stopping flows/Force Quit not working

Firstly: when you are using the Adobe configurators in Switch on Windows, then Switch will only be able to connect to them when Switch starts them. When you start the Adobe applications manually, then Switch won't be able to connect and the task will keep on running endlessly. When the issue happen...

Re: Updating file triggers flow

I think you should make your Illustrator input as a Submit Hierarchy. As you mention, set "Ignore updates: No" and "Leave originals in place: Yes". This way you will only get a copy of an Illustrator file each time there is an update or a new file. Use the copy of the AI file to trigger the injecti...

I need the flow to trigger when the illustrator files are updated. The flow updates all links in photoshop and exports jpgs via script. I am having trouble with tri...

Re: Split PDF layers

Do you want to merge them so each layer becomes a individual page, or overlay them so they are combined to make one page? The overlay pdf action in PitStop 2020 might be useful if the latter. Each PDF consists of X amount of pages(always the same). They have to be combined to one single pdf with th...
