PDF page and layer selection

uCreate Print now gives you the ability to select which page and layer of your PDF document will be used in your design.
When placing an asset ADOR in your InDesign document, you can specify the required page or layer.
For example, if the PDF contains several layers per page, such as art, dieline and bleed, you can choose the specific layer to be used.
During production, only the defined page and layer are considered.

Table row styling

Table row styling allows you to control the way a data record of a dynamic table is presented.

Using this feature you can define, for each data record, the background color, font and other style attributes, as well as the layout and dynamic content. You can also dynamically span a data record over multiple styled rows, or omit a data record altogether.

For example, you can create a table with two designs: blue for debit and green for credit.  In the data source, in the “XMPieDesignSelector” column, you will assign each row the required design.

This feature is available for InDesign composition only.
