Re: Printing PDFs with Illustrator + Adobe PDF printer

I can only guess that you must have added that folder to the $outfiles array before you push the C: drive folder. The fact that the push works proves that $outfiles exists as an array, but without seeing the code it is impossible to say what is in there. But you have not answered my question why it...

Re: Printing PDFs with Illustrator + Adobe PDF printer

Why do you want to print to PDF, rather than export? Consider that printing causes the output to pass via Postscript, so flattening can take place. Printing to a folder that is not known by the Switch element is of course going to generate the error message that the expected output result is not fo...

IJT could not be opened: '00021.ijt'

I made a duplicate flow to my second Switch installment and i am running a part of it at the same time as the first installment. On some occasions i get the following error IJT could not be opened: '00021.ijt' IJT could not be opened: '0001Z.ijt' etc, for about 20 different warnings of the same type...

Re: Ai file loses color profile after processing.

The empty script worked for me, but it is certainly more logical to add the line: $outfiles = [$infile]; //or if you already have other paths on the $outfiles array: $outfiles.push($infile); to tell Switch that the input file is actually (one of) the output file(s). This also worked for me, thanks!

Flow design efficiency

I hope this goes under Flows. I'll try my best to explain my question. When designing flows, does using multiple of the same element change the speed of at which Switch processes flows? Example: I have 4 different job assemblers. I am using 2 recycle bins for them to send errors to be deleted. ( 2re...

Re: Moving big files

Submit filespec does not allow to use network folders. Can you please explain how to run XML files through another submit hierarchy? When i try to use the same submit hierarchy twice, the ai file is moved to problem jobs. Maybe it's simpler just to move the xml and ai to separate folders with my scr...

Re: Moving big files

Changing the minimum file solves the big file problem, but creates another one. I also have xml files coming into that folder, which sometimes are smaller than 1kb. If i set the submit hierachy with minimum file size 1kb, the xml files are not picked up.

Moving big files

I have a submit hierachy point to which a script copies illustrator files. 95% of the time the files are small size 10-30mb. but sometimes we have files that are up to 1gb. In those cases, switch moves the file before it has been fully copied to the folder and causes an error. When moving big files,...

Using postscript with Pitstop Server

Is it possible to convert postscript files to PDF with pitstop server?

My workflow currently is: postscript file is converted to pdf via distiller > Pitstop Server PDF2image.

Can i skip distiller and send postscript directly to Pitstop?

Acrobat closes after each process

I am using acrobat to create a jpeg from a pdf. Each time a pdf arrives, Acrobat is opened, jpeg is made and acrobat is closed. Why is acrobat closed each time? Can it be made to remain open like illustrator for example?

Re: Can't delete top level folders created with Node

I have not tested it but I can only assume that fs.ensureDir creates the directories with a mode that does not allow them to be deleted. fs.ensureDir takes a second parameter that specifies the access mode. Try adding that with the octal value 777 (you may know that from the command chmod) which is...
