    control on Artwork general parameters Reply

    I am able to create the artwork films using axlDBCreateFilmRec, How to get control on artwork general parameter settings?

    I want to change the 'Device type' 'Error action' 'output units' etc

    I didn't find any axl command for this.

    Thanks,

    Nagaraj.

    Hi Nagaraj

    You can do it by writing a script file and replaying that script. Both the script and the replay can be performed inside a script program.

    There are two ways of doing this. I prefer Ole's method - and I have a stand alone Skill function to do this (attached). The second, and possbly easier, method is to write the art_param.txt file directly. The hard part here will be determining the names of the parameters in the file. Regards, Dave

    Hi

    Since you're using 15.7 some parameters have changed and new parameters has been added. There could also be a difference in syntax, I would recommend that you record a script in 15.7 running over all the parameters.

    Then compare your script file with the stuff in the skill code and adjust accordingly.

     Or even better start using 16.6, there's so much more good stuff that it will be worth it.

    Best regards
