Re: Incorrect Font

Any composition-time font errors would be in the composition log file, the .msg file with the same name as the output file but with a .msg extension. Not the .msg file that gets generated at collect...

Re: Place a Graphic File based on a Text field

I can think of two ways to do this.

First way: Add all the graphics as named resources in the Resources dialog. If you make each resource name match a value in the data, then you don't need any...

Re: Unknown Tag no_tag ignored

Sorry, this was introduced in version 11.1. It's specific to Mac. We already have a fix for this, and it will be in an upcoming release. Our apologies for the trouble.

Re: Inserting PDF with different Pages Sizes Not Working

FusionPro can certainly handle pages of different sizes. In order to analyze what's going on here, I would need to see the job files.

Re: Help with table formatting

First, if you're using FusionPro 11.1, then you can make this table, formatting and all, without writing a single line of JavaScript.

In older versions, you can just break out that call to...

Re: Help with complex composition

Great! Glad to help.

Sure. Though if you're imposing, you need to have the same number of pages output for each record. But you can certainly put variable content on those back pages. You...

Re: Add "%" after table field

It's not clear what error you're getting, but you should be able to just add the percent sign in the call to row.SetContents at the end, like so:

Re: How might I make this multi-line work?

Thanks David.

I looked into this, and it's a known issue, case FP-221. Imposition and multi-line records don't work well together. Imposition relies on saved lookup positions in the data file,...

Yes, a "for" loop is your friend here.
