Default FPImposer hidden settings

I'm looking for all the hidden settings that can be made to the *.fpi file after it is created in FPImposer. I have found a way to get rid of the gutters between certain pages in a layout, but only by editing the *.fpi file in a text editor and adding 'DiscardGutterR_1=Top' or 'Bottom' where needed. Is there any documentation of all the hidden codes that can be used? We have some layouts that need some extra attention that some hidden codes, might/hopefully provide.

Thanks in advance for any help/advice.

Those settings are not hidden, and the FPI file is not meant to be edited in a text editor.

If you select the Layout tab/screen in FP Imposer, you can right-click on any of the page images shown in the preview pane on the upper right of the dialog, and a pop-up menu will appear allowing you to do things like discard the space between any two rows or columns, and rotate rows, columns, or individual pages (signatures).

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)});

Dan, thank you for the kick in the head. I had a brain fart, and forgot about just right-clicking. But I was still hoping for more. But that is ok. Thanks for the quick response.
