PitStop 2018 - Action List Visualizer
« on: March 21, 2018, 08:51:17 AM »
Hope you like this one, it's been called a 'gamechanger' by some of our beta testers.

A new way to create and edit Action Lists, it actually shows you what is going on directly in the PDF file.

Anybody familiar with Variable sets?
Was going to try and create a round corner action, but it is asking for the variable set
Which I assume is the round corner I want, but not sure where to create the variable set.

Nevermind!!! there is an action that you can set the corner right in there
actually it wouldn't hurt to know about variable sets if anyone knows!

I do not like the Design Layout panel so I used the Edit Page Boxes with Inspector. Once I get the first page setup how I need I then do the "Apply these page boxes to all pages" which will only work correctly as long as all pages in the PDF have the same pages boxes. If some are different this will screw up the pages that are different in the PDF.
