Dynamic Line-Art & Graphics


By grouping objects together with a text field, the entire group can be made to appear or disappear depending upon the value of the text field.

This car ad template includes a triangular sign for carrying optional messages such

"SOLD" or "SALE".

If no substitute text is provided in the Infix Server configuration file, the sign can be automatically removed.

This approach may also be used together with Text Fields.

To Create Optional Signs

1. Use the Object Tool to select the artwork and associated text then group them together using the Object > Group Selection menu option.

2. Ensure the text field has the ".d" suffix. This tells Infix Server to delete the containing paragraph if it becomes empty.

If Infix Server does delete the containing paragraph, it also deletes the other items in the group leaving just the text box and any other paragraphs it may include.
