conditional Action List course of action

Post by jcarp » Mon Aug 03, 2020 9:58 pm

In PitStop Pro 18: I found I'm able to integrate a short Action List into a complex Action List with success :D . . . can I apply the conditional operators to them? For example, "if Spot Color 1 is found, run Action List 1; if Spot Color 1 is not found, run Action List 2."

Thank you.

Potentially yes.
There is a way to trigger Action Lists, and that's to add them to a Preflight Profile, and then turn them on and off with a Boolean variable.

The challenge will be to trigger that Boolean variable in PitStop Pro.
One of the problems is that the fixes happen before the checks, and the other is that there is no way to get the result of a check back into the variables.

At least not yet!!

Do you need this for PitStop Pro in Acrobat?

yes please - Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. Thank you for the extra effort: I'm working on getting our pre-flight process down to a one-click function (or as close to that as possible).

It's not possible in PitStop Pro at the moment.
Something to work on for the future.

To be honest if you are going to get it down to 'one click'
You might as we investigate going the whole distance and remove the 'click' as well. :D

Did you ever look at completely automating the process?
