Repeat Records


Recommended Posts

So I have a multipage PDF and I want to compose each in a 6-up imposition and repeat that 5 time for each page consecutively. I don't have a data source.

I am using a OnRecordStart rule of


FusionPro.Composition.repeatRecordCount = 5;


This does the repeating, but it does all pages and then repeats the whole set 4 more times.


I am trying to get 1,1,1,1,1,2,2,2,2,2,etc


But I am getting 1,2,3,4,5,1,2,3,4,5.


Is there a way to accomplish what I am trying.

The repeat record system is set up to repeat the entire multi-page record, not to repeat each page separately or collate the pages. But it is possible to get the output you want. Here's one way:

var numPagesInTemplate = 5; // <- set this to the number of Body pages in the job
var numRepeats = 5; // <- set this to the number of times you want to repeat each page

FusionPro.Composition.repeatRecordCount = numRepeats * numPagesInTemplate;

var pageToUse = Math.floor((FusionPro.Composition.repeatRecordNumber - 1) / numPagesInTemplate) + 1;

for (var i = 1; i <= numPagesInTemplate; i++)
   FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage(i, pageToUse == i);
