Repeating fields in web-to-print templates bug

02/08/2013

Multi-page web-to-print templates can have text and image fields shared between multiple pages.

The user can change it only on one page where it is encountered for the first time. All the other pages in the same web-to-print template will reuse the previously entered value.

We had a problem with our web-to-print engine updating pages it didn’t need to update when the shared fields were involved. If an update failed the user had to start over. This problem has now been fixed.

There is still a performance limitation. If a field spans too many pages with a lot of images it may take too long to update them all resulting in a time-out. Please, let us know if you encounter this situation.
