External file references from PDF/X files

This page applies to Harlequin v13.1r0 and later; and to Harlequin Core but not Harlequin MultiRIP.

URLs for external profiles (PDF/X-4p, PDF/X-5pg) and target files (PDF/X-5g, PDF/X-5pg) are resolved using code that is configured in the same way as for OPI. For more information see OPI configuration data.

Support for external files in PDF files uses the same mechanism as OPI, but does not require OPI to be enabled. Thus, you can continue to enable OPI in your code, but it is not required.

By default, the RIP searches the following locations for external files referenced in a PDF:

  • In the same directory as the main PDF file
  • In \SW\OPI .

Additionally, you can add this PostScript language code to your RIP configuration, for example:

              /OPIdirectories [ (OPI//) (%Mounted_Drive%/FileLocation// ) ]
            /HqnOPI /ProcSet findresource /HqnOPIconfigure get exec
