Creating a Variable Set

A Variable Set contains all your Smart Preflight variables that can be used within your Preflight Profiles. You can create more than one Variable Set and each set can have multiple variables defined. However, you can only run one "active" Variable Set at a time within PitStop Pro. It is recommended that you keep all your variables within one Variable Set unless you are also working with PitStop Server.
Note: If you use variables that are contained in different Variable Sets within a single Preflight Profile, only the "active" Variable Set variables will contain their default values. Variables used from inactive Variable Sets will be blank.
To create a Variable Set,
  1. In Acrobat X, click on the Tools and navigate to PitStop Process and the Smart Preflight option. In the dropdown menu, select Variable Set Preferences to display the Enfocus PitStop Pro Preferences and the Variable Sets available. Or navigate to PitStop Pro > Variable Sets > Variable Set Preferences... to display the Enfocus PitStop Pro Preferences and the Variable Sets available.
  2. In older versions of Acrobat, navigate to Plug-Ins > Enfocus PitStop Pro > Variable Sets > Variable Set Preferences to display the Enfocus PitStop Pro Preferences and the Variable Sets available.
    Note: You can also go to the Acrobat menu and About Third Party Plug-ins to access the PitStop Pro Preferences on Mac OS.
  3. With the Enfocus PitStop Pro Preferences open, select the Manage... () dropdown menu and New from the sub-menus. This will create and open a new Variable Set that will be saved to your "Local" PitStop Pro folder.
