Re: CopyFitLine Rule

I don't get that message with FP 11.0.9 on macOS 10.14. I can try on a 10.15 machine later.

You might consider using the "better" CopyfitLineWithMagnifyTag function instead:...

Re: colorize grayscale picture

This can be done in FusionPro 11. There's a new feature that does pretty much exactly what you want, in that it allows you to replace colors in a PDF, either the template (background) PDF, or a PDF...

Re: Tagged Text File

I see a few problems.

First, watch out for curly quotes in tagged markup, especially for tag attributes. This:

should be:

Re: Imposer mirror data on one side of sheet

Yes, of course. That's the way that Imposer works for duplexed jobs. Otherwise, the fronts and backs wouldn't match up.

Re: Pulling text from large tagged document

Variables are generally per-record. That's the whole idea of variable data.

You could create text replacements on a per-job basis.

Or you could set up that capturedVars object as a global,...

Re: Pulling text from large tagged document

Glad I could help! I learned a couple things too.

I think the Regular Expression I came up with will handle those cases as well. Post back if you run into something that it doesn't match.

Great! Just out of curiosity, when you say you're running it on Windows (PC), is that directly in Acrobat? Or is that through FP Producer or Server? Also, what version of FusionPro?

Re: Reading in external text files...

There are a couple of inefficiencies I can see in your code. First, you have to iterate all 60K records of the XDF for every 9K records of your main data. Multiplying 60,000 by 9000, you're talking...
