Re: Floating Text with Icon

You could create a Repeatable Component, with a graphic frame and a text frame, and repeat that as necessary. Otherwise, unless, you can find a symbol font with that icon, you'll need to use an...

Re: Inserting PDF File inside aa Coposition

So again, it's very challenging for me to try to visualize exactly what you're doing without the template files.

Re: Inserting PDF File inside aa Coposition

So, a few things.

First, if you're posting code, it's a lot more readable if you put it into code formatting blocks, like in my posts. It's easy to do. Just click the "Go Advanced" button...

Re: colorize grayscale picture

This can be done in FusionPro 11. There's a new feature that does pretty much exactly what you want, in that it allows you to replace colors in a PDF, either the template (background) PDF, or a PDF...

Re: Imposer mirror data on one side of sheet

Re: Pulling text from large tagged document

Variables are generally per-record. That's the whole idea of variable data.

Re: Pulling text from large tagged document

Glad I could help! I learned a couple things too.

I think the Regular Expression I came up with will handle those cases as well. Post back if you run into something that it doesn't match.
