This tutorial explains how to set up a simple color conversion flow with callas pdfToolbox CLI and Enfocus Switch.
The callas pdfToolbox functionality can be found in the "Elements" section – just enter "callas" in the search field, and the available functional modules for callas pdfToolbox will be listed.
In this example, we are choosing "CommercialPrintingCoated.cfg" for conversion to high quality sheetfed offset printing.
Select a suitable setting defining the origin of the PDF files to be processed. If it is not known exactly what kind of PDF files will be processed, "AutomaticBestGuess.cfg" will provide the best possible results by applying the most suitable settings to each file.
In this example, we are using the option to convert all spot colors to process color.
Drag a folder icon from the "Basics" list in the "Elements" panel to the canvas, left to the pdfToolbox ConvertColors icon.
Connect the folder for incoming PDFs to the pdfToolbox ConvertColors icon by clicking first on the folder icon and then on the pdfToolbox ConvertColors icon.
Next to each folder icon, a small number indicates how many files are waiting to be processed (1) or how many files already have been completely processed (2).
Once callas pdfToolbox has completed processing the PDFs, they will be stored in the second folder (1), ready to be retrieved from there and sent to the press. The individual files are listed in the "Files" panel (2) and for example can be dragged to the local disk or into pdfToolbox Desktop or Acrobat Pro.
