Adobe Acrobat / Re: Recombining separated PDF's
August 10, 2023, 03:13:00 PM
Oddly enough XMF has a way to recombine and spit out a pdf with the vectors and fonts intact.
I can't say I have ever used it, but I just gave it a try and it seems to work pretty good, at least I got a pdf with everything showing up.

You have to create a master template, as that is the only place you can turn the function on, and you also have to respect the documents overprints. Let me know if you want more info.

You can use the add pages step to ensure even pages.

I would not say that it is HARD, but it is involved and a bit intimidating. Not a project for the faint of heart. Lots of panels need removed, and once you get to the actual printhead, some of the screws are a bit difficult to reach.
The video does a good job of going through each step, and is certainly a must if you want to try this yourself.

What a coincidence, we just replaced the print head in our 9900 just this last Friday.
If you want to learn to do it yourself there is a great video at myx900. Although it is $45 bucks to see the entire video, it does take you through the entire proceedure. You can get the printhead from Epson Prinhead.

My guess is it is a limitation of his store software.
I created an expiring email on my domain to download it. If I understand the license correctly I am free to distribute it to any non Adobe employee, so feel free do click below.

Honestly, I am not even sure it will do me any good, I already have the old books saved, as well as an excel file of the LAB color builds for the Indesign color books.

This last weekend I ran across the Freetone site.
Some might find it interesting.

This script is not something I wrote. I found it years, and years ago on a german scripting site and used google to translate the dialogs.
Pretty easy to use once you place the script in your scripting panel
Select the guides you want to copy and run it
A dialog will ask you what page you want to copy them to
Choose mirrored or normal
If you have additional layers, you can choose which layer the guides are copied to

Hope it helps

I have a script for that. I can send it tomorrow when I get back to the office.

Is it possible you have the marks view turned off?
Try ⌘m and see if that helps.

If you do this often, you may want to look at
It has a free version and a pro version of a script that will not only output as individual pages, but will rename the file based on a field/s of your choosing.
Kodak Systems / Re: Composite 2 multipage PDFs

If you modify Joes Pitstop script to also change the graphic to overprint, then place into a new Indesign layer using the multipage import, the resulting pdf should work, at least in my testing.

PDFTk will also do this using either the background, or stamp commands. You would still have to change the red pdf using pitstop, but the output pdf would be merged with the red one set to overprint. If you are on a mac a simple applescript could handle the PDFTk part, if you are not comfortable with command line.
