I cannot find a sequence variable for this.
Could you give me the variable, and where to put it?
Do you put the variable under File Name in the save node? Right now I have $FFwfJob.jobName$ under File Name in the Save node.
I would also node, the output management license in FFCore enabled FIFO printing which will submit the jobs to the DFE in the job group sequence. If the DFE is configured for FIFO printing (a global setting for FFPS and a queue setting for the Fiery) then the files should print in the required sequence.
I would disable job renaming when using loops. It's problematic in that case.
There's no way to dynamically rename the jobs created by split.
However, you can use FFCore variables when saving files to a hot folder (the list of variables are in the Appendix in the Help).
There's a variable for the sequence number in the job group. You should be able to add this to the name to ensure that the documents are printed in the expected sequence.
Is there a variable that I could insert into the Rule Name box on the 2nd branch so that it doesn't put next, nextnext, nextnextnext etc, in the file name. Is there a variable so that it will state in the filename, 1-250, 251-500, 501-750 etc?
That option was introduced in v220.127.116.11.
I would guess that you are using an earlier version. You should be able to upgrade at no cost as all updates are covered by maintenance.
You should be able to do the same thing in earlier versions using the following settings
You would then connect the second branch back to the split node
I don't have the option of Split by Segments. The workflow we want to create is to split pages in quantities of 250, or 500 etc. How do I do that if I can't use split by segments. Currently, if I set up branches on a split node at, 1-250, 251-500, 501-750 etc, it will stop after 750 pages. But what if I drop in 2000 pages. I tried 251--1 as the second branch but it did not divide out the final 250 page pdf's.
