Re: Composing 2 records only

Is that in an OnJobStart rule? I think you can assign a variable for a global data file object which uses your input data file. Then you count the total records and use that as your secondary element...

Re: Unknown Attribute <> of Tag <fileioinfo> Ignored

If I search the forums for "unknown attribute" it appears to be related to running a newer version of Designer than Creator. If you are certain the output yields what you expect, you're probably OK,...

Re: Placing Color Bars on Template pages

Do you have two template pages in your FP file named ImposedFront and ImposedBack? Is your FPImposition file 2-sided? Are your records requiring/generating 2-sided output?
