Re: Losing art

Re: Exporting in 2500 record chunks

Are you wanting 2500 sheets in a stack? Then the imposition would need to be set to be 2500 in the stack, and your output would need to be set to 5000 records per chunk, since the layout is 2up.

Re: Another way to read page number?

for (var i = 0; i <= 16; i++)

Re: internet image path

Dan,

The link is an "https". The template is being built in 11.0.9 on a Mac running 12.14.5, and due to the job's size, I intend on rendering it in our Producer that is running Windows Server 2016.

Re: Cannot install FusionPro

You can thank Adobe for this. Acrobat DC 2020 is the issue. There is newer version of the 11.0.9 installer in the downloads that will work.

Re: Feature request

Yes, but what I am wishing for is to apply overlays to Fill Images and Image Characters that follow the shading of the background image without affecting the background.

if (Field("Fieldname").indexOf("$") > -1)
