Default Copyhole error when file is imposed

I'm working on a job with a PDF element in the background. When I compose the job without imposition turned on, everything is fine. If I turn imposition on, it get "No value associated to graphic copyhole. <PDF> in record 1, etc...".
Does anyone have an idea as to why this is happening?

We do a fair amount of jobs like this where it's better to have a "template" file where I can just copy in the background PDF and I'm not setting up a new file every time. Hopefully this error is just something I'm doing wrong on my part and not an issue with FP.

I don't see that you're calling the background PDF...

Create a graphic rule like so:

return Resource("PDF") //file name of resource

Then point the graphic frame to this rule

Default Re: Copyhole error when file is imposed

This is a bug, specific to stacked imposition. If you're using imposition without stacking, or no imposition at all, then the graphic resource will work in the output.

I did make a fix for this (FP-550), which will be included in a future release.
(Unfortunately we just missed getting this into the most recent 12.1.2 release.)

The ability to use a resource directly in a graphic frame like this was a new feature in FP 11. As lasdoog points out, the workaround is to create a Graphic rule to return the resource, as in previous versions of FusionPro.

Sorry for the trouble.

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)});

Ok thanks.
I do have other files where I've done it the old way so I guess I'll go back to that for now.
