  • Ok, I was able to combine your solutions to a working prototype.I am using a dummy-subform in "repeating_subform", which has the target "last_page". This subform is hidden by default.With your script from above I now determine which subform-instances are on the last page, and set the dummy-subform t...

  • Hi Brue,ok, I understand now what you meant.Well, if deletePages() would work, the script could be as follows:this.deletePages(xfa.layout.pageCount(), 1);xfa.layout.relayout();(Pseudocode)Having each page duplicated sounds costy, but I guess it's a costy requirement anyways.Do you mean duplicating t...

  • Hi Brue,thanks again for the extensive answer and explanation.Unfortunately the script does only help when deleting the last page.We have masterpages FIRST, NEXT and LAST.If we remove every element except the ones on the last page, the content would be printed on masterpage FIRST instead of LAST.Is ...

  • It's called Adobe Document Services (ADS), a cross-product of Adobe and SAP. I don't know how the script can delete the last page or all but, and that's exactly what I'm trying to find out. Any ideas on that?

  • Hi Brue,what I'm trying to do is to split the document into last page and everything but last page.Since I can't use external tools for this (like PDF Toolkit / PDF Toolbox), I have to find a script to do just that.I hope it's clearer now.A button will not work for us, since the form is not interact...

  • Thanks again for your input.Same problem. I've tried to hide all items from the second-last page (... == pageCount - 1).With 4 pages of subforms, pages 3 and 4 are now empty, but are still printed.Is the event ready:layout maybe too late?The page count is only available at this event though, right? ...

  • Hm... that sounds like the right direction.If I do that now, the last page does not contain any items, but it's still printed.Any idea on how to avoid the blank page?Can I access the page and set the presence to hidden? If so, how?

  • We can create a second master page, but we would need to tell the content when to switch to the second master page.Here's the structure:Repeeating_subform will eventually extend to the last page.How do I tell repeating_subform to use my second masterpage "last_page"?

  • Hi Bruce,thanks for your explanation.To use that option, our last page would need a different page size, correct?How can I tell the last page to be on a different master page, or a different page size?Best regardsJoschka
