Segment "Append Rule Name to Job" Number format

Jump to solution

Is there a way to format the numbering when splitting a file into segments, using "Append Rule name to Job"?

IE: I have to split files into managable segments and then run them in order but if I sort them on press they look like this.

File name 1
File name 10
File name 11
File name 12
File name 13
File name 14
File name 15
File name 16
File name 17
File name 18
File name 19
File name 2
File name 20

I would like to have them come out as

File name 001
File name 002

Ect so when I sort they are in order for the press operators.

One could put in a Save node after the split and have the filename be specified by $FFwfJob.jobName.rtrim(e)$e $FFwfDoc.documentSequenceNumber.pad(3)$ and the file location be a hotfolder location (e.g., C:\Xerox\FreeFlow\Core\00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000\Data\Hot Folders\start). The rest of your WF would now reside in the new WF specified for use in the Hotfolder. See Save node below.
