Nope - I need it for when the pdf passes on to other equipment to use, such the path to follow for digital routing, laser or digital knife cutting.  If it were me I would upgrade to 13 in a heartbeat, but we have a spending freeze here probably til first of the year.  >:(

Not sure you can even upgrade to 13 since there is already version 2017, and 2018 released.

Thanks a bunch - Using Acrobats "Outline Page Geometry" is going to work perfect!

Oh jeebus... when I was on my PitStop Server 12, I saw that "Add a Stroke to the Trim Box for Visualization" was there, but not on of my PitStop 12 on my workstation. Turns out, I was on update 2 on my local machine. When I installed update 3, I now have "Add a Stroke to the Trim Box for Visualization"! Looking at how the action is built, It appears "add Background" is the step needed to get this done.  :laugh:
