Default Placing Color Bars on Template pages

Hi,
Is there a simple way to add a color bar graphic to the template page that you are using as the imposition background? I have uploaded it as a resource, but do not know how to implement it.

Default Re: Placing Color Bars on Template pages

I was able to create a basic graphic rule:
Code:
return CreateResource("path/to/file.pdf","graphic",true);
and apply that rule to a graphic frame on my template page. I had to set scaling to "None" for it to display.

Default Re: Placing Color Bars on Template pages

Thank you, that worked. When I output a file, it says
"The number of pages in this record does not match the imposition signature: 1 blank pages will be added.
A body page does not have master page assigned."
I wrote an OnJobStart rule to use my background page but it is doing something wrong. Is this something you could/would help me with?

Here is my code:
FusionPro.Composition.impositionSheetBackgroundFro ntPage="ImposedFront";

FusionPro.Composition.impositionSheetBackgroundBac kPage="ImposedBack";

Do you have two template pages in your FP file named ImposedFront and ImposedBack? Is your FPImposition file 2-sided? Are your records requiring/generating 2-sided output?

Yes to all.
The file imposes correctly before I add the two template background pages.

I assume you reviewed Dan's example in this post? Can you post the files you have with some dummy data?

See if this works.
The template is a complex one. There are 7 possible background letters that are being called into play with an OnRecordStart rule. Like I said in an earlier post, this functionality is working before I try to add the background pages, then it gives me this error:
The number of pages in this record does not match the imposition signature: 1 pages will be truncated. and the output is all wrong.

I continued looking for answers in the forum, and may have figured it out. My first page wasn't set to unused. It appears to be outputting fine now.
