    Colors Used in a PDF

    Non-printing background (Pitstop)

    Should be a setting on the Prisma to print all layers or visible layers? We did hit this on our Screen Digital press. We did have to create a step to flatten out and delete layers not used. The final pdf had no layers

    Switch stupid question

    Most of my Switch flows are pretty simple. I have copied / borrowed / pasted from ones supplied to get more complicated flows. I need help with this one. Assume I have 3 folders (Folder A, Folder B, Folder C) and each folder has 100 pdfs in each. I want to have a folder (Input) that Switch is...

    Latest Indesign issue

    Had to download and install V16 because of a client. Kept In 16, we no longer save back to the folder it started in. Is that a setting I can change, or do we need an update from Adobe?

    Crop larger

    If I select the crop tool in Acrobat I can change the page size to a custom number. IE, job started at 8.5 x 11. But, I want 20 x 20. I can do this. How can I accomplish the same in Pitstop? I have tried every available option that I am aware of

    Hardest Pitstop Server / Switch question ever...

    Question after the setup: Say I have a letter. It might go digital or it might go conventional. I want to start the PDF out of Indesign with say 9 spots, CMYK on the front and 1 spot and black on the back. I want the extra spots to get a much better piece off the digital press. (I have 1.3...
