Re: Slow preview

Might want to check on how many fonts you have loaded. If you have around 500 loaded, that could be part of your problem. Something to look at.

Dan, I'm just trying to match the design of what the customer has originally done. And when they did the stroke in Illustrator, it looks fine on both the '$' and the number. But when done in FP, the...

Re: Switching pages with on record start

Just looking at this part, your variable "Background" is always going to equal the Field("Background"), so the switch will never work. Let's say Field("Background") is equal to "18x12", and you are...

Re: Adobe TypeKit

If the TypeKit fonts were loaded correctly in your system, then you should be able to use them in other apps too. Have you tired other apps to see if you can use them there. If not, you might have an...

Re: Adobe TypeKit

I've had luck. You have to load the font(s) you want through Adobe's Cloud service, by 'syncing' the fonts. Once that is done, then you can "Load Fonts" in FusionPro.

Re: Empty frame and page usage

Why don't you use "unused" pages, and have them be turned on via an "OnRecoredStart" rule based on the language translation (assuming that is a field in your data).

I use this sort of thing all...

I could use some help on a project. I think I should be able to use TextMeasure to make this happen, but it will be the first time to use it, and I'm stuck. I'm sure I'm overthinking it.
