Hi All,

I have created a form which has data on odd pages and some terms and condition on the back pages(even) pages. I am using Adobe Livecycle Designer ES version 8.1.2

For this I created 4 Master pages.

FirstPage - Pagination -> Odd/Even - > Odd (front) pages

                                   Placement -> First Page (in Page set)

Front Page - Pagination -> Odd/Even - > Odd (front) pages

                                   Placement -> Rest of pages

BackPage - Pagination -> Odd/Even - > Even (Back) pages

                                   Placement -> Rest of pages

Dummy - Pagination -> Odd/Even - > Blank page

I dragged the content area of back page on the dummy page.

This set up works fine for printing.

I have additional requirement of archiving, emailing and faxing. While sending a email or fax or archiving, the data should be continuous, the back master page should be removed otherwise they show in alternate pages as blank pages even if i set the presence property to visible(print only) .


Are there any settings which can be done to remove the master pages that are not needed based on a codition.
Any help will be appreciated.

Regards

Hi Paul,

The pages which are set to be printed on front side only are being printed on both sides if I have more than one page of those. Ideally the case should be that these pages print only on front side and a blank page is printed at the back.

Could you please help me with getting it right. I got it working once but not seem to replicate it again.

I am using  Adobe Livecycle Designer ES Version 8.1.2

Is it a issue with the version.

Also,

The main master page set has a master page by default. When I try creating 2 master page sets as a child of the main master page set (as you have in the sample), I am not able to delete the default master page.

I tried using your solution for my requirement but not able to.

I am working on a Purchase order form.

The layout of the form is:

First page : We have the ‘Header Details’ and the ‘Item table’ starts on the same page.

Back of first page(Page 2 in duplex printing): We have a text which covers the whole page…

this text might go to the next page also((Page 3 in duplex printing)

On the next odd page(i.e. Page 3 incase the back side text only covers first page OR 5 in case it covers 2 pages) ----- The ‘Item table’ continues on all the Odd (Front) pages only

The back of all odd pages is blank.

Also, if one chooses to e-mail this form the back and the blank pages should not be visible.

In the sample you have provided, if I hide the page the master page is hidden.

Could you please help me with it.
