Re: Routing by size not working on specific PDF

The two attachments are:

1.       Customer job

2.       Job processed with the FFCore 5.1.0.3 with FFCore variable values watermarked on – box sizes

 

When I view both jobs in Acrobat I get a Crop Box of 230mm by 317 mm.

FFCore is claiming (the watermarked values) the Crop Box is 235mm by 322mm.

 

I am mystified by the above and have asked development to look into the reason.

Re: Routing by size not working on specific PDF

Thanks David,

 

Ok, The media box is bigger than the crop box, as per the results from running a callas profile here (in points not mm), the issue being the crop is inset to the media box and I think the logic below for Selection behaviour in FFCore is having a bearing?

 

<page id="PAG1" nr="1" mediabox="0.0/0.0/666.288/912.897" cropbox="7.16/7.157/659.128/905.74" trimbox="7.16/7.157/659.128/905.74">

 

 

 

 If the selected PDF box is not defined in the PDF, the component falls back to using another PDF box per the following:


The Art Box falls back to the Trim Box.
The Trim Box falls back to the Bleed Box.
The Bleed Box falls back to the Crop Box.

The Crop Box falls back to the Media Box.

 

 

So that is why the route fails?

The behaviour above is relying on the crop box being set to zero?

 

Should I post this to support in the UK aswell would that help?

 

Thanks

 

Simon

Re: Routing by size not working on specific PDF

The problem appears to be that FFCore is using the Media Box dimensions for the FFCore Crop Box variables $FFwfDoc.pdfCropWidth$  $FFwfDoc.pdfCropHeight$.

 

These are the values that FFCore has using its variables in mm :

Trim Box 230.00 317.00
Art Box 210.01 249.68
Bleed Box 230.00 317.00
Crop Box 235.05 322.05

Media Box 235.05 322.05

 

This is the content with the pdf in points:

<</ArtBox[35.5039 90.9259 630.784 798.69]/Contents 23 0 R/CropBox[7.15976 7.15714 659.128 905.74]/LastModified(D:20180601094944+01'00')/MediaBox[0.0 0.0 666.288 912.897]/Parent 14 0 R/PieceInfo<</Illustrator 51 0 R>>/

 

They do not agree.

 

I have written an AR. Feel free to author a SPAR.
