Re: How to compose both a 1-up no imposition proof AND an imposed press ready print f

Kim,
If you are using the Server API, you can do this pretty easily. I have done something similar to this in the past. I created one PDF for printing and one for a customer proof. Both PDF's were...

Re: Record Number Counts

Thanks Dan. I'm sorry for the confusion of the slip sheet. We have our own slip sheets that we make. I set them up in the layout as a body page and will call them based on a data field.

Re: FusionPro VDP 10.0 Now Available

I sent this problem to Alex and Doug over a year ago. I attached a screen shot of our current compositions in 9.3.36 and one from 10.0.3. The 10.0.3 is the PDF on top.

Re: FusionPro VDP 10.0 Now Available

Doug and Alex know of this issue and they didn't respond when I asked them 6 months back about the pixel shift and if there was a fix for it.

Re: Imposition Duplexing Defaults to Long Edge

Thanks Dan. I think I may have found a work around. It seems like certain settings in the advanced options change the edge from short to long.

I'll try it again when we upgrade to version 10.

Aaron,
I tried it with Rotation off and it doesn't work that way either. It still defaults to long edge even when I choose short edge. I must have forgot to turn off the rotation on the file I...

Re: Error 2147483647 Producer

I'm a little confused that you say that it fails at the pre-compose but composes 5,000 records. So, does it compose, just not all the records?

We had a similar issue to this a few years back. We...

Re: Output Files to Specific Directory with OnJobStart

That works great. Thanks again. If I were to strip the file extension from the folder name, would that happen in the variables? I tried it in the file path and it didn't do anything.
