PitStop not selecing RGB elements

Post by RytisT » Tue Dec 04, 2018 2:32 pm

Hello. I have a rookie problem, my pitstop is not selecting RGB elements. Now, I know it's probably that I don't have the right "select" action set, is why it won't select, so maybe you can help me out.

All I have in PDF is "ICCBased RGB" - that's what Acrobat tells me. And I have in action list, these actions:

Any ideas where I could move on with this?

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 stroke.

Good idea, but that wasn't it. Selecting only fill color, RGB object still doesn't get selected.

Sure, thanks: https://we.tl/t-SHy7wp8T6w

There's loads of RGB objects, but for example one of them is "500g" but I can't find a way to select it. Thanks.

I checked your file and I think Terkelsen is correct.

The "500g" objects are tagged with sRGB in the fill. They have no stroke.

If I setup the "Select by icc tag subtype" to report ICC tagged RGB in the fill and disable the reporting of ICC tagged RGB in the stroke, then it finds the object.

I've created an Action List which illustrates how you can handle this. As Terkelsen said, you divide up your Action List so you have one Action for each possibility. Then you combine the selection with OR statements. If you don't do this, then only the objects with both ICC tagged RGB in the fill and ICC tagged RGB in the stroke will be selected.

I've also created a version which will search for all kinds of RGB objects:

Hm, weird, because I did try it it without stroke option, oh well, thanks a ton for the help.

Thanks.
