Updating the paths to missing PDF files

Scroll Prev Up Next More

This menu item, located on the PDF menu lets you update all the paths of all the PDF File properties of the PDF Pages script lines of the current script.


This is particularly useful if you have moved all the PDF files related to a particular job to a new folder.


When the search is complete, the PDF files that could be found, have been updated, and a dialog appears informing you of the number of paths that could not be updated and the reason why (this search will be much faster if you are using EFS to locate server files as recommended).


The initial search is only performed on the local Q:\ drive (as specified by the Primary HTTP Server).


You are then given the choice of letting Q++Studio guide you through the list of missing PDF files (or those for which more than one file was found), one-by-one, displaying the single missing file update dialog each time, and searching through the secondary HTTP server(s) if any are defined.
