Hi. PSM v.6.1
Is there a function to import PDF's with a variable call like you can with text files?
Secondly, I have a customer ID number that needs to print at the bottom of all the pages. So I create blank layouts and put the ID number on them and save that as a template. When I import a PDF onto the layouts, it imports in front of the ID number, so I have to do a "send to back" on all the PDF pages before printing. This is ok when importing manually, but if I can get the PDF to import off a variable, this will not work.

No, there are no functions for calling PDF files in a text variable.

PDF files can by triggered in Image boxes though. This is new to 6.1.

Go to the website > Downloads > Resource Center > Quick Reference Guides & select the "How to setup Variable Image" document. Or you can contact support@printshopmail.com & they can help you.

"Send back" should not back a problem with an Image Box.

Sweet! I did notice that while you can click on the variable to add the file and it will see a pdf, if you click on the "Choose File" button you only get image options, no pdf. That was probably where I was getting confused.

Thanks!!

The fact that the "Filename" button in the Edit Expression dialog does not allow you to select pdf files in 6.1 is an oversight, thanks for pointing that out.
