Default Imposition dependent rule

In OnRecordStart, is it possible to determine if an imposition is being used (fpi)?

I want one single PDF when an imposition is turned off.

and...

I want to use OnRecordChange() and MakeNewOutputFile() when imposition is turned on.

If you're composing the job with an imposition applied, the cfg file will contain:
Code:
UseImpositionDefFile=Yes
You can access the values in the cfg file through the JobOptions property at composition time:
Code:
if (FusionPro.Composition.JobOptions["UseImpositionDefFile"] == 'Yes') {
  // code to execute when imposing
}

Neat.

This gives me another idea. I have a VD job that prints on litho shells. But the shells are never ready in time for proofing.

So I include the 2 sided shell artwork during proofing.

Now, I can use "ImpositionDefFileName" to turn off the first page when I switch to a one sided FPI.

You could do it an easier way if I understand correctly. Set the template up with the shell art but in the composition settings under Graphics, you could check the "Suppress Static Background in composition" button.

In this particular case it already does involve "Suppress Static background".

But I also need to suppress the front side artwork when running the VD.

The VD is only on one side.

But the client expects two sided proofs.
