Default Previewing eps Files

I am using FusionPro 9.3.5 on a windows xp system. I have created a graphics box and added resources which are eps files. At first I created a graphics switch rule pointing my text data to the corresponding eps files, but the preview did not show an image, nor when I composed the file did an image appear. I then created an Import Picture Rule and selected the EPS as the type of graphic with the same no-show result. I have repeated the same experiment but used pdf files for testing and it worked. I need to use the eps file so wanted to understand what is happening.

Thanks.

What does the composition log (.msg) file say?

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.

Default Re: Previewing eps Files

If there was a problem with bringing the EPS file into the output, I would expect some kind of message about that in the log file. Since there is no such message, then without seeing the job files, I have to think that the most likely thing is that the job isn't actually calling out the graphics.

What happens if you use PDF graphics instead?

Default Re: Previewing eps Files

Chuck,
Try 2 quick things that may help identify if it is the EPS files themselves.

1) Make sure that your data file and your PDF template are together in the same folder. I have noticed this can affect any graphic file type via rule or even the file name being in the data.

2)make sure your EPS files are not on a network (they should actually reside on the harddrive of your machine) and not buried in sub-sub-sub... folders.

If you still get the same result, contact support with an explaination, include the EPS file and an example of your rule.
