    Switch / EAL idea - thoughts?

    Pitstop Pro now as the ability to look for a graphic and detect if it is a known graphic. I want to do the following and am wondering the feasibility. You all might shoot a hole in it quickly before I waste time. Say I have five dies. I make five 2D barcodes say .5 x .5. I go into Illustrator...

    Switch - sort pdfs by size

    Got to admit. Working from home today and cannot get to my Switch. However, I do not remember this feature? Would like to have centralized PDF in and then branches of say 8.5 x 11, 8.5 x 5.5, etc If this cannot be done from within Switch, can a script be written?

    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 15.xxx 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?
