PDF Print Jobs
Aug 3rd, 2006 at 7:05pm
 
Hi,
I used the PDF template to print PDF files as they're copied to a folder.  Print jobs for larger files stop short before all pages are printed.  I tried changing the GDUtil runkill command to 60 seconds but the problem still persists.

Should I increase the seconds to a higher number?  I'm afraid making it higher will increase the time it takes to print each file.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Hello Dean,

What you can do is leave the setting on 60 seconds and only increase it for large PDF files. To implement this:
Open <task directory>\<task name>\wd.bat using a text editor
(<task directory> - press CTRL+9 to explore this directory, <task name> - the name you gave the task)

Just before the command that starts GdPUtil/Acrobat add a few lines of code that set the timeout depending on the filesize:
Code:
SET TIMEOUT=60
IF %WD_FILE_SIZE_KB% GEQ 1024 SET TIMEOUT=300
"%GDPUTIL%" -runkill %TIMEOUT% "%ACROCMD%" %OPTIONS% "%WD_FILE%"
%ANNOTATE% Info done
 


The code above uses a timeout of 5 minutes (300 seconds) for PDF files that are greater than 1024 KB, and a timeout of 60 seconds for smaller files.

Hope this helps,
Gert
