Chapter 45. Using Distiller > WORKING WITH WATCHED FOLDERS

WORKING WITH WATCHED FOLDERS

One of the greatest features in Distiller is its ability to process many files automatically and without supervision. In fast-paced environments like newspaper or magazine production, this ability is of vital importance. Distiller does this through the use of watched folders. A watched folder is a folder in your computer that Distiller “keeps an eye” on.

Creating and Editing Settings in Watched Folders

To set up a watched folder, choose Settings, Watched Folder to launch the Watched Folder dialog (see Figure 45.3). Clicking on the Add button enables you to navigate and select a folder to include in the watched folders list. When a folder is added, Acrobat creates two new folders inside your selection: In and Out. Distiller monitors the contents of the In folder and, when a PostScript file is dropped in, it automatically processes it and places the new PDF file in the Out folder.
