Default Printing every nth page

Hello, I have a document with a couple thousand pages. We have a need to print every 54th page starting on page one. so page 1, then page 55, then page 109 and so on all the way to the end. Is there an easy way to script this? Thanks!

Can you elaborate on what you mean by "printing" in this context? Do you mean that you want to compose output with only every 54th page?

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)});

My apologies. Yes, I meant compose. We already found a solution to the particular issue we had. However, I think I would still like some guidance on the best way to use some javascript for when similar situations arise.

So what I think I would need is simply this: Can I set every page in the document to "unused" without having to touch every one? If this can be done with a javascript command, that would be fine. But then I would need to be able to specify a certain set of pages for composition. An example might be a document with let us say 500 pages in it. I might have to compose only pages 1, 20, 40, 100, 150 and 250. Or maybe I would need to compose only every 25th page starting from page 1.

Thanks!
