Custom Summary Letterhead

    I had someone ask about using a custom letterhead for their summary reports. Easy right? The trouble is they have a different header on the cover page than all the following pages. They currently use JavaScript in Acrobat but want to change to Bluebeam. Any ideas?

    What kind of header and footer, something with just standard text, or graphics?

    I am trying to think of a way the normal automation scripts can handle this, but unfortunately the page referencing for the script arguments only allows a specific range (and if you don’t have that many sheets it will throw an error) or all pages. It also doesn’t have a “Clear Previous” Argument in the Script. The best solution maybe to have preset headers and footers, can save them now in the dialogue.

      The header and footer are just text, but you know how it goes with specific fonts in logos or company names. What do you mean by saving the headers and footers in the dialogue? Did I miss something?

        I don’t know if it’s exactly what you need, but you can save defaults in the Header and Footer preferences. If I was making the workflow for myself, I might make one that I apply to Page 1, and another that I would apply to the rest of the pages. Again though, if it has graphics, template might be the only way.

          Ok, I understand. I thought there was a new feature to break those apart in a Summary export. Your thought was to run a script after the export that would add two separate header/footing imports. Hmmm
