Background Sheet does not show in Output file

Recommended Posts

After making a Background Sheet for a specific Job I tried to compose the job several times but did not succeed. The Background is just not visible in the output file.

In OnJobStart I have placed the following code:


FusionPro.Composition.impositionSheetBackgroundFrontPage = "BackgroundDekbladen";

FusionPro.Composition.chunksBreakStacks = true;

FusionPro.Composition.forcePreprocessing = true;


The background sheet is a single sided pdf with the same size as the output file.


I can't figure out what I am doing wrong here


Any help is much appreciated.

Yes, I am using Inposition. The problem is that I saved the template file as a "normal" pdf file outside the pdf I was working with. In the User Manual it stated that I could make the Background fils as a template file so I did just that... But it never occurred to me I had to actually place this page together with the variable master page as a separate page inside the same pdf-file. AND really make it a Template page with FusionPro / Manage Pages / Insert Page / Type / Template. So this first time I used a background page for the imposition was a good learning experience. After making the necessary changes it worked flawless, even with variable text elements inside that template page.

Thanks again Dan for your good advice.
