Default Image Question

I have a certificate that has text and two images. 1 of the images is a "non printing object" and the other image needs to print along with the text. I know there's an option to Suppressthe background, so the non-printing object will only show up in the proof, but not in the print ready PDF.

I can't figure out how to Suppress the background, but still have the second image appear in the print ready PDF.

I tried selecting the image as a variable graphic frame, but that's not working and that doesn't seem correct, because the image will never change. I will aways be the same.

Default Re: Image Question

You will have your printing item on the background and the nonprinting item as a separate resource and make a rule to assign it to a graphic box the size of your document. You can name the graphic box "nonprinting". Create an OnRecordStart rule to suppress the nonprinting box when it's printing or show it when its a preview.


//access the “isOnlinePreview” property and the “isPreview” property

onlinePreviewVal = FusionPro.Composition.JobOptions.isOnlinePreview;
desktopPreviewVal = FusionPro.Composition.isPreview;

//if this is a preview composition or a desktop preview
//then return the text “PROOF”

if (onlinePreviewVal == "Yes" || desktopPreviewVal == true)
FindGraphicFrame("nonprinting").suppress = false;

FindGraphicFrame("nonprinting").suppress = true;
