I’m attempting to self-troubleshoot potentially generating PDF/VT files.
We currently have a setup where we use Connect’s Workflow, but maintain all our templates in Planetpress Suite (Design). We can’t move some of our larger templates into the Connect Designer simply because some of them are too large/complex to rebuild now.
I’ve read that generating PDF/VT files is possible from this perspective. (https://help.objectiflune.com/en/PlanetPress-workflow-user-guide/2019.1/Workflow/TasksProperties/OLConnect-CreatePDFVT.html)
I’ve set up (what I believe to be correct) process in Workflow, which returns a PDF (generated from csv data and a PP suite template), but after investigating the PDF’s properties with Acrobat, it reports that the PDF’s version is 1.4 (I believe 1.6 is recognised as PDF/VT).
My process simply checks a folder for an expected csv file, then creates metadata (which was only added as initial logs without reported it was missing), then creates a PDF/VT, and finally outputs to a folder. Both the metadata and PDF/VT tasks point to a pretty basic testing PP suite template (ptk file), where no metadata has been configured. (I have simply never interacted with the metadata side of OL’s products, but attempting to learn.)
Can anyone point to a reference, or explain in fairly layman’s terms, what a correct process would consist of?
I’m more than happy to provide any other information if it would be beneficial explaining my issue.
