Re: Send processed files to path in metadata

I can be done without a script, but you can't use S:\\Customer\\order\\Test if it is a mounted volume to the Switch server. You have to use \\MYSERVER\Customer\order\Test as the path in the Archive Hierarchy Files are not on the same volume as the switch installation. They are located on 2 differen...

Don't you have it in your script?

If you have it the Dataset from the XML you have you specify it as \\MYSERVER\Folder\Order\jobfile
Sorry i misunderstood. I Have no script yet, i was hoping this can be done without a script. But i guess i'll have to try with a script then.

Have you tried to escape the backslashes i.e. S:\\Customer\\order\\Test
Where can try it? in the metadata?

Send processed files to path in metadata

Is this possible somehow? Or should i look into writing a script for this? 1. A custom script moves files into the submit hierachy folder(ai + xml) xml also has the path to the original location of the file. 2. xml is picked up 3. Switch processes the files. 4. The processed files are moved to the o...

Re: Ai file loses color profile after processing.

We cannot use Save as to make PDFs because of our printing software's settings I do not understand that one. Are you referring to a specific custom PDF preset you have to use? In that case add it to the AI on Switch and choose it from the list. You can of course add your script to the "Save as" pro...

Re: Ai file loses color profile after processing.

There is an Illustrator save option that determines whether or not the ICC profile should be included and the default is "false". That probably explains why saving as Illustrator loses it. This being said, you should not save the PDF with a script for the Command property, but just with the standar...

Ai file loses color profile after processing.

I have an illustrator element which makes PDFs from ai files. After this process the ai file loses it's color profile. what can cause this?

Re: Use regex in condition with variables

Because there are other symbols in the filename, i came up with this. It seems to be working. But is this correct?

[Job.NameProper:Search="(A135.2|A115|C5016|A5012|A5013|B32.2|B33.1|C5010|C5011|C5014|C5015|C5018)"]

Matches

(A135.2|A115|C5016|A5012|A5013|B32.2|B33.1|C5010|C5011|C5014|C5015|C5018)

Use regex in condition with variables

I think this is a noob question, but i hope someone can confirm this is correct/wrong. I have a connector, which has Conditions in variables defined to the "Include these jobs" option. Currently, i have created a new condition for each new "ID" of a model. This creates a very long list of conditions...

Priority of using Illustrator flow element

I have 2 different flows, which both use Illustrator. Is there way for making Switch use the flow element in a certain order? Currently, if both workflows have illustrator files in them to be processed, switch uses Illustrator randomly (or based on when the files were inserted?) The goal would be th...

If you check for equality then the files that are correct will continue that way in the flow.
If you then add a branch for "All other jobs" any file that does not match the conditions set will go thru that branch and you can send your error messsage there.
missed that option, thanks!

Re: Condition with variables OR AND not working

You have to test for equality instead of inequality: a part of the filename is equal to something from metadata OR another part of the filename is equal to something from metadata AND the mail address contains something My aim would be to check for inequality, because i want switch to give an error...
