Is there a way to take the jobflow automation one step further and use it in a command line. This would greatly speed up the whole operation.


Or is there a way to export the action list from Pitstop Pro and use those actions in a command line? and then send the results to a Fiery hold queue?



Thanks,


F1

Can you give a use case for "use JobFlow it in a command line"?

Example:

PDF file that has been processed in PitStop with a list of actions, then send processed file to hold queue. Can this be done with a hot folder or command line: hoping that this would speed up the processing time since the GUI would not be utilized.

PitStop Actions:

Reset all PDF page boxes
Rotate all Pages to Portrait
Scale pages to Letter if smaller than Tabloid, bigger than Letter
Scale pages to Tabloid if bigger than Tabloid
select pages equal to or smaller than 8.52 and then resize then resize to letter size
Set Media box to Crop box
Set Media box to Letter if smaller than Letter

Once the file is in the hold queue then properties would be applied and then printed.

Thanks F1! With JobFlow you can actually run those Pitstop actions in a JobFlow workflow with the Correct module. You can even import your existing action lists. That way when you submit a job to that workflow via a hotfolder, or windows shared folder, or FTP, etc, those actions would be applied and then the job would be submitted to the Fiery assigned to that workflow. Hope this helps.
