To create an Action List that changes the page layout of a PDF document


  1. Using the Enfocus Action List Editor, create an Action List that looks as follows:
    Select odd pages 
    Select objects inside region (Attributes: Use Trim Box. Select objects inside region) 
    AND 
    Select first page 
    NOT 
    AND 
    Move page content (horizontal: 5.0 mm, vertical: 0.0 mm) 
    Select even pages 
    Select objects inside region (Attributes: Use Trim Box. Select objects inside region) 
    AND 
    Move page content (horizontal: – 5.0 mm, vertical: 0.0 mm)
    
  2. Click the Fit Page  button to view the pages on the complete media size and to see:
    • The trim size
    • The page’s trim marks, if any
    • The page’s registration marks, if any
    • The page’s bleed, if any
    • Color control strips, if any
  3. In the Enfocus Processing Panel, select the respective Action List and click Run.

    PitStop Pro will apply the Action List in the following steps:
