Acrobat layers composing from Fusion Pro


Recommended Posts

Not sure how to ask this.


When I export a PDF from InDesign, I can have it create Acrobat layers. One layer for position and the other layer for the image. I can toggle them on and off in Acrobat layers. My question, when I toggle the position layer off or tell it not to print. Then compose the document. The position layer still composes and shows up. I am assuming that this has to do with the compliance level is only 5.0 compatible. Has anybody else tried this and has had any luck or should I just continue my old ways of deleting the position layer.


I attached some screenshots of the layers.

You can create another graphic frame and assign the position layer image and then use this rule to only see it while proofing but have it suppress during composition.



//access the “isOnlinePreview” property and the “isPreview” property


onlinePreviewVal = FusionPro.Composition.JobOptions.isOnlinePreview;

desktopPreviewVal = FusionPro.Composition.isPreview;


//if this is a preview composition or a desktop preview

//then return the text “PROOF”


if (onlinePreviewVal == "Yes" || desktopPreviewVal == true)

return Resource("Position layer.pdf");



return NullResource();
