Re: Output to multiple files option

Sorry for the trouble. The auto-complete in the Rule Editor is not context-aware like in other code editors. It's just a simple list of keywords. Also, JavaScript lets you declare any variable and...

Re: Help needed if there is a way to have variable check boxes

I think I've suggested pretty strongly, in this thread and others, that it's almost always better to post the job files, as that makes it much easier for me, or anyone else who's trying to help,...

Re: Multiple Page Resource.

So, you could add every graphic used by the template as a resource, and they will all get collected up and uploaded to Producer.

But these will all get uploaded every time you compose, which will...

Re: Help needed if there is a way to have variable check boxes

Sure. Those glyphs aren't unique to InDesign, they're just glyphs for characters in fonts, like any other characters. So like you asked in May, if you find a glyph in a symbol font, like Dingbats,...

Re: Multiple Page Resource.

The resource exists, but not in the same folder as the template, so FusionPro doesn't know where to find it.

You can add a rule with the search path to the graphic, as Susan suggests.

But...

Re: Having customers upload graphic images to a template

I think that WebCRD puts the full path to the graphic into a field in the data. So you can just call CreateResource on that data field, either with the "Insert Picture Rule" Form rule, or some code...

Re: Slow RIP speed on Fiery

My guess (without looking at the job files) is that you have partial transparency in the background, in which case flattening it would likely speed up the RIP time.

You don't need any code at all to do this. It's just a matter of keeps, which you can control in the Variable Text Editor and Paragraph Formatting dialogs.

Well, it's hard to know what you're expecting, let alone why that's not the result you're getting, without more information, especially without the files.

Re: Use color change for inline graphic

You can change the color of a resource, and use it inline, but it works only for PDF resources, not for any other graphic format.

If it's a PDF, you can just add a line like so before you return...

Well, I don't know. How are you using it? You haven't posted the rule that's calling it.

Re: Storing User-Defined Functions

This functionality does work, but you have to use valid JavaScript syntax. In this case, you do indeed have an illegal character.

Re: Poste Italiane Rectangural Datamatrix

The issue is that there's too much data (and the wrong kind of data) for a 16x48 barcode.

Your sample data is a mix of digits, upper-case letters, and lower-case letters. The IDAutomation spec...

Re: QR code Returning Graphic when Field is Empty

A barcode with no data is still valid. If you want nothing to appear when the data field is empty, put this before the return line:

Re: Gotham Bold is showing only Italic with no way to turn off

Thanks for the update.

In the future, instead of manually deleting fonts.ini, you can go into the FusionPro app, from the Server menu, and select Reset Fonts.

Re: Output to multiple files option

It's just a warning message, not an error.
