Issue

VDI image is not showed in foreground, when is added to the page (script ADD action) regardless the order is specified.

[ADD_IMAGE] ADD IMAGE "ImageName" ORDER FOREGROUND
    SIDE RELATIVE 0
    CURSORX ABSOLUTE XXXX
    CURSORY ABSOLUTE XXXX
;
 

Cause

Too many VDIs images are being created

Resolution


Adding the PDFIN_HITS_FOR_VDI=OFF profile option corrects the problem

Vector and image mode.
This command can be used in either the Config or the Profile and specifies how many times an image is encountered in a job before a VDI is created for it. Using a larger value may reduce the number of VDIs created for a job.  This command does not use more than 64 VDIs on a side. VDIs are not created for images with less than 512 pixels. PDFIN_HITS_FOR_VDI=n specifies that if an image with less than 65535 pixels is seen n times (default 5), or an image with 65535 or more pixels is seen (n+5)/3 times (default 3), then a VDI is created.

Note that it is more efficient to create a VDI for a larger image. After every 32 VDIs have been created, the PDFIN_HITS_FOR_VDI value is doubled. This is to prevent too many VDIs being created. VDIs are always created for bigger images, of which the bitmap size is greater than 1MB, unless PDFIN_HITS_FOR_VDI=OFF.

The permitted values are:
OFF Disables VDI creation
<value> Number in the range 2 - 4294967295, indicating the number of hits.
Default: 2
Example: PDFIN_HITS_FOR_VDI=10
