Re: Help with complex composition

Great! Glad to help.

Sure. Though if you're imposing, you need to have the same number of pages output for each record. But you can certainly put variable content on those back pages. You...

Re: Same address grouped into one envelope

Can you post an example of the data, and whatever you have so far for a FusionPro template, along with a mockup of what the output should be? I don't think there's enough information (at least not...

Re: Add "%" after table field

It's not clear what error you're getting, but you should be able to just add the percent sign in the call to row.SetContents at the end, like so:

Re: How might I make this multi-line work?

Thanks David.

I looked into this, and it's a known issue, case FP-221. Imposition and multi-line records don't work well together. Imposition relies on saved lookup positions in the data file,...

Following that, the rule with the loop would look like so:

Trying very hard to not just code it for you... ;)

Yes, a "for" loop is your friend here.

Re: PDF417 Barcodes

That looks like a problem with the font not appearing correctly in Preview. Try a full composition and view the PDF; that should look correct.

Re: Output a reference text file along with the PDF

That sounds like a good solution.
