Question Background Sheet does not show in Output file

After making a Background Sheet for a specific Job I tried to compose the job several times but did not succeed. The Background is just not visible in the output file.
In OnJobStart I have placed the following code:

FusionPro.Composition.impositionSheetBackgroundFro ntPage = "BackgroundDekbladen";
FusionPro.Composition.chunksBreakStacks = true;
FusionPro.Composition.forcePreprocessing = true;

The background sheet is a single sided pdf with the same size as the output file.

I can't figure out what I am doing wrong here

Any help is much appreciated.
Greetings from the Netherlands

It's hard to say without looking at the job files. Are you actually using Imposition? Is the page "BackgroundDekbladen" of type Template? Are there any relevant warning messages in the composition log (.msg) file?

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)});

Yes, I am using Inposition. The problem is that I saved the template file as a "normal" pdf file outside the pdf I was working with. In the User Manual it stated that I could make the Background fils as a template file so I did just that... But it never occurred to me I had to actually place this page together with the variable master page as a separate page inside the same pdf-file. AND really make it a Template page with FusionPro / Manage Pages / Insert Page / Type / Template. So this first time I used a background page for the imposition was a good learning experience. After making the necessary changes it worked flawless, even with variable text elements inside that template page.
Thanks again Dan for your good advice.
