Default Add a Separate PDF file to the Beginning of a Composition

I am trying to find a way to add a PDF file of pre-imposed set up (slip) sheets for our slitter to the beginning of a composed PDF. It is a 10 page PDF (5 sheets) with the crop marks needed for the slitter on it.

I've been able to add a PDF in between pages in a composed PDF based on a data field in the past, but I haven't had luck with getting this file to combine with the composed output.

I talked with support and they gave me a way to add more body sheets on compose but that didn't help. Is this even possible? Has anyone done anything like this before? I haven't found anything like this in the forum.

I've tried making a body page and an overflow page and made the separate PDF a resource in the file and tried placing it and letting the extra pages go into the overflow pages but that didn't do what I needed.

Any help to point me in the right direction would be appreciated. Thanks

That's pretty much what you need to do. I can't tell why whatever you tried didn't work without seeing the job files, though.

I am a not a Support engineer, and this forum is not a substitute for Support. My participation on this forum is primarily as a fellow user (and a forum moderator). I am happy to provide help and answers to questions when I can; however, there is no guarantee that I, or anyone else on this forum, will be able to answer all questions or fix any problems. If I ask for files to clarify an issue, I might not be able to look at them personally. I am not able to answer private messages, emails, or phone calls unless they go through proper Support channels. Please direct any sales or pricing questions to your salesperson or inquiries@marcom.com.

Complex template-building questions, as well as all installation and font questions or problems, should be directed to FusionProSupport@marcom.com. Paid consulting work may be required to fulfill your template-building needs.

Please include the specific versions of FusionPro, Acrobat, and your operating system in any problem reports or help requests. I recommend putting this information in your forum signature. Please also check your composition log (.msg) file for relevant error or warning messages.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.
