Default Background on Imposition Sheet

Hi,

I'm using FusionPro 8.2 and read about the new feature of setting a background for imposition sheet.

I have a template with page 1 and 2 in size 85mm x 55mm for a business card and page 3 is in size A4 (that is the size of my imposition media).

I also setup the following rule as a callback rule "OnJobStart"

FusionPro.Composition.impositionSheetBackgroundFro ntPage="ImpBack";

(ImpBack is the page name of page 3)

If I compose this template I will get a pdf with my imposition but with a 3paged business card instead of a background on my imposition sheet.

Can someone please point out my mistake.

Thanks
Marcus

Do you have the impo page set-up as unused?

I'm not sure I understand exactly what you're seeing, and how it's different than what you're expecting. Are you actually using Imposition? That is, have you created a .fpi file with FP Imposer and referenced it in your template, on the Imposition tab of the Composition Settings dialog? Also, if you remove the OnJobStart rule, or comment out the line to set the background, does the imposition work properly?

If you can collect up the job and post it, that would be worth a thousand words.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});

Hi Dan,

sure I can. Sorry for not doing this before. :-)

In the meantime I created a template with just a one sided business card to clean up the template and to just focus on imposition background.
This new template is attached.

Hope you can point me to the missing settings.

Thanks
Marcus
