Action list, Generating QR-code with value of the file name

Post by MikkoS » Fri Feb 07, 2020 7:25 am

Hi!

I just can't figure out how to do this.

Pitstop Pro.
I'm trying to generate QR with an action list so that the value for generating QR would be the name of the current file.
The generation itself I got down already but the value collection is a mystery.

Is it so that variables described like:
%Current Doc Name%
doesn't work on action lists?

Is there any way to achieve this?

And Pitstop action list or preflight are the only options I can use. I have a workflow solution (Fiery JobFlow) that can only use these features from Pitstop along with variable sets.

Did I bump into a situation that cannot be dealt with action lists?

Not possible yet. But in fact I spoke to someone at EFI Connect in Las Vegas about this very thing.
So it won't be that far away.

That is great news.

I personally haven't needed it until now but I could right away see many other possibilities to use it as well.
