Re: internet image path

I don't think dropbox is going to support that. If you could get a url for each file you would be in a better situation. But only having a url to a folder isn't going to help.

Re: Missing original pdf graphic

Use lower case names for your FusionPro pdf.

Instead of "MyFusionProSetupFile.pdf" use "myfusionprosetupfile.pdf".

Re: I'm Having Trouble trying to figure out stacked variable images

Can you just create a text frame and fill with graphic images?

var images = [];
for (i = 1; i <= 6; i++){
if (Field("XSell" + i)){ images.push('<graphic file="./XSell' + i + '.pdf">'); }

Re: Output to Folder on Server

I don't have any experience with Producer. I assumed we were talking about Creator.

Looks like the actual path you need is /Volumes/Jobs/ABOTA/

The smb://... is just the server address and not it's location in relation to the filesystem.

Re: Output to Folder on Server

Couple of things. First when making a post with code use the advanced editor, or use this: --- Code goes here ---

Second, does that path "/Volumes/smb/192.168.200.72/Jobs/ABOTA/" even exist? If...

Re: OnRecordStart Execution

On your VARIABLE8 you're missing the Field part. Also, I'm not sure if it might have slipped your mind, but in your if statement there needs to be a condition on each pair. So, just having the == ""...

Re: Compose Ordered by External Data

I don't believe this is possible.

FusionPro composes in the order of the input Data Source, and I don't believe there is a way to seek around that data source.
