Get the height and width of PDF-Boxes for calculating in Action lists?

Post by yosimo » Fri Jul 10, 2020 2:17 pm

Hello,

how can I get the height and width of PDF-Boxes (Media-, Crop-, Bleed-, Trim- and Artbox) separately for use in Action Lists to perform further calculations?
I would like to create an action list that adds a value 'a' to the height of a box and a value 'b' to the width of a box.

How can I create a rule in a variable, with which I can also add a value to the height or width of a PDF-Box?

In the 'Change media (or crop, bleed, trim, art) box' action, it would be desirable if the 'Use box size' option also provided a selection separated by width or height.

Kind regards
York Simon

I will try to describe my problem in more detail:

concretely I try to adjust the height of the artbox to selected elements and assume the width of the trimbox.
(Or vice versa: width like selected elements and height like the trimbox). The trimbox should not be changed.

For illustration I uploaded three pictures.

https://www.directupload.net/file/d/588 ... dh_png.htm,
https://www.directupload.net/file/d/588 ... 9d_png.htm.

There the trimbox is the green frame, the artbox is the red frame as it should be set by an action list.
I am grateful for any advice.

Kind regards
York Simon

Is this for use in PitStop Pro (in Acrobat), or PitStop Server?

OK, I'm afraid that's not currently possible in PitStop Pro
