Different layout for Customer (Marcom) vs Press PDF?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Please feel free to move this thread if it's in the wrong category.


That aside, I'm wondering if anyone may have an answer that could be of benefit to me.


Is there a way to trigger a different layout (like a page pull) for the client-facing proof in the browser on Marcom vs the actual press-ready PDF that gets generated for our production team.


To help illustrate, consider an envelope that a client can customize online. There is to be printing on both the face and flap of the the envelope, which is pre-converted. We'll be opening the flap to print in one pass, therefore looking at the press-ready file head on the text on the flap will be upside down. (Unfortunately, this is also the versionable information.)


Is there a way to trigger one layout for proofing purposes (so the customer can see the "front" of the envelope, and the "back" with the flap down and text right-reading) and trigger a different layout for production purposes?


Thanks for any help you can offer!

The way to do this is to activate different body pages, using the IsOnlinePreview() value to call FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage() in OnRecordStart, something like this:

FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("Preview", IsOnlinePreview());
FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("Press", !IsOnlinePreview());
