Customising Preflight Report Message Variables

Post by jpestell » Thu Jan 06, 2022 7:17 am

I'm trying to customise the report message, does anyone know if there is a list of possible variables.

The default is message for checking page size is '%BoxType% width is %Width%, should be %WidthComparator% %RequiredWidth%'
I made the assumption that there would also be height variables %HeightComparator% %RequiredHeight%' but get the results below.

Your supplied artwork Trim box width is 89.99978 mm, and height is <MISSING VALUE!!> and does not
match the quote size of equal to 86 mm - <MISSING VALUE!!> <MISSING VALUE!!> (2x on pages 1-2)

Thanks

When you have the Customize Report Message window open, if you click the arrows on the bottom of the window it'll go through the different variations of the report messages that are available and you can edit each one to have a custom message:

For the Check page size action the last message is the one that has the variables you were wanting to access
