I am trying to change the scale of hundreds of documents. I am able to successfully run the Preflight Page Scale option, but we have quite a collection to run. I was hoping to make it an Action Wizard for our various team(s) to use when they run into this matter.  But I cannot seem to find the same preflight tool when pulling from Action Wizard menus.

Preflight fix:

Has anyone been able to successfully create an Action Wizard to run this fix?

You can use the Action Wizard to execute your preflight profiles. If you follow my instructions (Scaling Page Content in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC - KHKonsulting LLC​) to create a scale fixup (for this purpose, you probably want to specify concrete sizes, and not variables that would prompt the user), you would have a "fixup", but not a profile. In a second step you then need to create a profile out of this fixup. Only profiles can be used in the Action Wizard. The same also applies to Preflight Droplets - you also need to create a Preflight Profile first.

In the Action Wizard you can execute the preflight fixup per JavaScript or you can create a Droplet in the Preflight Tool.

I think the part where I'm getting lost is the Action Wizard and Droplet portion.  I'm not very familiar and I get stuck.

So here's what I'm doing:

  • On preflight menu, I have the scaling fix highlighted (as shown in orig screenshot)
  • I select Options and Create Droplet
  • When creting, the Run Preflight check using drop down menu is lacking the SCALE functionality I'm looking for (see image)

Could you tell me what the next option should be which would allow me to select the Scale Pages functionality?

I ran into the same issue when I was trying to create the Action Wizard. I don't know what to select to enable scaling; and it appears scaling isn't an option (to my eyes). If you could help clarify, I'd be grateful.

Thank you! I found where I was failing.  And I'm sharing here in case someone else makes the same mistake.

My mistake: I was modifying the existing 'scale' functionality and running it successfully.  I was trying to action wizard it. What I missed was: creating a new Scale Profile, exporting that 'new' one and then Importing it again into Preflight. Once I did this, I was able to see/find the preflight profile and apply it to an action wizard. 

Thank you. It was subtle for a newbie; as I had it working, but didn't consider saving, exporting, and then importing it.  I appreciate the assistance.
