Hi folks,
i have been trying to discover a way to see if a PDF has color on it or is all black and white from within a workflow process, not a design document.
Peace,
Jacob

Hi Jacob,

Unfortunatly, Workflow doesn't have any tools that returns a pdf's color level. Even with using scripts and the pdf API, this information is not accessible.

Can you tell us a bit more about what you are trying to accomplish, and why you need to find the color level in Workflow? Maybe we can see if there's a workaround, depending on what it is you are trying to accomplish.

Regards,
Raphaƫl Lalonde-Lefebvre
