FusionPro doesn't actually have a limit. If your system can handle it, so can we. []

FusionPro: 5.1p2b
OS: Mac PowerPc
Are you certain of that? I am trying to do a 30w x75h and it will not preview or compose with the converted EPS. If I make the template 75w x 30h, it actually works thus i assume that FusionPro actually does have a height limitation.

The limitation isn't with FusionPro but, possibly, with Acrobat. I'll run some tests here.

Yup - I just ran a composition of a 30" wide by 75" high template without issue.

UPDATE: I just re-ran it and had some missing text. I'm investigating now.

I owe you an apology!

There is a limitation on page height of template (background) PDF pages of about 45.5 inches, or 3.79 feet. (This is 327680 in hundredths of points in the DIF file, or 32768 in tenths of points, i.e. the maximum value for a signed 16-bit integer.) Above that, FusionPro will output a page with the correct size, but the contents will be blank.

That said, I'll reiterate my recommendation on scaling up wide-format output from here:

(Plus, there is a limit to how large the point size can be in FusionPro. It's a lot bigger than 260 points, but there's no need to tempt fate.) Furthermore, graphics for a yard sign or a billboard probably aren't designed to look terribly sharp from close distance, so scaling them up in the output isn't going to gain you much anyway. Therefore I would consider trying to output a smaller file.

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.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});
