Re: I'm Having Trouble trying to figure out stacked variable images

Can you post what you have so far? Ideally the template, or at least some sample data and images to work with?

Re: Replacing character / formatting a string

It's not completely clear to me what all the requirements are, in terms of every possible data field and what the expected result is for each.

But if all you're trying to is take whatever is in...

Re: Formatting Headache Redux

Sorry, that's a function in FusionPro 10.1.

Your original post didn't specify the version of FusionPro you're running. That's why I recommend putting that info in your signature, so that it's...

Something like this:

["E", "Email Address"],
["L", "Linkedin URL"],

Re: Counting Multi-Line

I see. You're actually composing just a single record of output.

So this isn't really a multi-line record job at all. In fact, it's not even a multi-record job. (In MarcomCentral, we would...

Re: Counting Multi-Line

I don't understand what you mean here:

What do you mean "on the input file name"? There is a property named "recordCount", which you can access on an object of type ExternalDataFileEx. There are...

Re: Superscript and Stroke Issue

There are a lot of factors that can go into this, including your Paragraph Global settings. So it's hard to diagnose this without the entire template.

That said, are you really trying to put down...

Re: Grab input file modified date

I don't think there's a way to do this, at least not with Creator. Generally, the underlying OS and its file system are not query-able in a JavaScript rule, except for searching for the existence of...

Re: single column/multi column question

Re: single column/multi column question

You're on the right track with the two named overlapping frames. I don't know exactly what's in your data that controls whether "the list in the letter will contain five or less items," but you can...

Re: overflow/duplexing question

You don't need to use an Overflow page at all. Just flow the text directly from a frame on one Body page to a frame on another Body page, and if the text doesn't need the second frame, that second...

Re: For Loop Help

That totalRecs variable is simply a number, not an array, so there's nothing to iterate over in a for loop.
