Route on document width lower than <x>?

Hi

 

I need to route jobs below a certain width. I've tried using the rule "fits into" and "fits between", but that seems to try rotating the job as well.

 

Any way of doing this?

 

Thought about passing the width to a script and adding "_slim" to the filname, if it was below this certain width, and then routing on this. But it seems i have to keep the original filename, for ffcore to pick it up at $FFout$

 

or adding this "slim" info to the metadata or a ffcore variable and routing on this, but can i manipulate these from a script?

Re: Route on document width lower than <x>?

As you have noted, some dimension checks are orientation agnostic. If you want to constrain the checks then add another check for the orientation and specify that all checks must be true for the condition to be true.

Orientation would be Landscape when the height is lower than <x> and portrait when its higher, right? then this wont solve it, as both scenarios are met in our production, and i need it to focus only on the width, as i need a workflow to adress width-limitations on some of our finishing equipment.

Not totally sure that I follow. We consider jobs wider than taller to be landscape and jobs that are taller than wider to be portrait.

Can you post some pictures showing what you want to check for?

I want to route on widths below 105 mm. (And heights - seperate - below 120 mm. But lets focus on width) The input-pdf's height can be either lower or higher than the width, so i simply can't use the check on portrait/landscape combined with "Fits Into".

 

Our finisher for saddle stitching can't go below a 210 x 120 spread (105 x 120 single page), so these situations needs to be treated differently.

 

Look below (It lacks a route for when both width and height are lower, but you get the idea.)

So, the problem is that documents smaller than 105 x 120 need special handling.

 

I think following checks should do the trick:

  • Fits Into 105 x 2540 AND
  • Is Portrait

OR (add second set of checks)

  • Fits Into 105 x 105 AND
  • Is Landscale

 

You should get the following results:

  • Document that's 85 x 90 - matches both checks on set 1
  • Document that's 90 x 85 - matches both checks on set 2
  • Document that's 100 x 110 - matches both checks on set 1
  • Document that's 110 x 100 - fails checks on both sets
  • Document that's 100 x 125 - matches both checks on set 1
  • Document that's 125 x 100 - fails checks on both sets
  • Document that's 110 x 115 - fails checks on both sets
  • Document that's 115 x 110 - fails checks on both sets
  • Document that's 110 x 130 - fails checks on both sets
  • Document that's 130 x 110 - fails checks on both sets

Only documents whose width is less than 105 are matched by the job characteristics.

 

The first check will match any document whose width is 105mm or less and whose height is greater than 105mm (otherwise the document would not be portrait)

The second check will match any document whose width is 105mm or less and whose height is smaller than 105mm (otherwise the document would not be landscape)

 

I think that will do the trick.
