Thanks, it was a pre-merged PDF from Word. if the clients weren't complete knobs, they could have added the blank where needed.

This made me crazy all day. If you work in one of the dark mode settings, they swapped the colors of the selection arrows. Not the positions, just the colors. I was in the middle of trying to switch them thinking they got moved and I hear my coworker say, "WHAT THE F#$K IS HAPPENING WITH MY ARROWS?" :rotf:

If you are doing the merge in the same action list, you might need a ‘Split Action List’ after the merge, or it won’t recognise the new pages.

Ohhhh, I think this is it:

"After every 3 pages starting from 4 to <<last 1-sided pg>>"

Then I manually added a blank at the 1st page. When I tried it from the beginning it got all kinds of jacked.  :banana:

Enfocus / Add blanks to large Doc

I had this working, until the CSR gave me the right info....

Merged doc, each set needs to print:

Sheet 1 - 4/0
Sheet 2 - 4/4

So I need a blank after page 1, then after what WAS page 4 etc. to the end.

Using the "Add Blanks at Even Intervals" but can't get the right settings.

Halllllp!!!!!

I'm like Tracy. Copy from server, work on files, and copy back up. Used to be slow to copy, but no more. It's only come back to bite once or twice in the many years because someone didn't follow SOP. ID10T(s).
You get id10t errors too? When I worked there were also pebkac errors with certain co-workers (Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair).

Always work off of the server too. I like living dangerously.

I work exclusively off the server (except on HUGE files) for a multitude of reasons:

The server is archived/backed up so it needs to be the most recent set of files.
In the event that there are multiple prepress employees, everyone has access to make changes.
If you have a set of files on the server and a set of files on the workstation, how do you, or another employee, know which set is most current without research?
When you link images, links are broken when you change locations of files.
Your RIP usually requires a central location to refer back to data, and the server is the best place since it's always on and rarely restarted.

In the event the file is HUGE and running slow off the server, I copy the file to the desktop, work it, and copy it back and delete from the desktop when done editing. Failure to do this causes issue.

[edit] Based on my history and attitude, I work every file as if it is my last, because it might be. I assume that I could die at any given moment (or quit) and the next poor sap needs a clear path.
