Variable Directory in Output Presets

While, unfortunately, meta data is not available to determine the location where files are sent in the Output Preset’s Job Output Folder option, there is a little known trick that does enable us to do this dynamically.

The trick is actually super simple: You can use JobInfos from Workflow directly into the presets, by using @automation.jobinfo9@ (from 1 to 9 depending on which job info is used).

While this cannot be set on a per-document basis (since it uses a job information which is for the whole job), you can certainly use it to separate your job by batch number, date, or a number of other elements!
