Q: add letterhead is enabled but I do not see it / my letterhead shows up quickly and than disappears.

Fabreasy setup -> letterhead tab -> button [Advanced options]. The following window appears:

Step 1: Define a set. Enter a name e.g. Financial Report
Step 2: Add your digital stationery (unprotected PDF files) to the library.
Step 3: Define your overlays. a) Enter a name e.g. FinRep – page 1, b) select the function, c) select the letterhead file from the library, d) select or define page ranges, e) click on [Add]. The overlay show up in the upper left list box. Define other required overlays.
Step 4: Add the defined overlays to a set. Click on the tab: modify sets. Select a defined set and and select a defined overlay, Click on [Add]. The overlay is added to the set. You can add multiple overlays to on set.
Please note: each individual set can have its own password to open a file, email-template, or the placement of the letterhead (foreground / background).

Q: My application prints in batches. Can I print to pdf without the printer popup (and add letterhead)

A: You can disable the Fabreasy printer popup and generate PDF-files having a unique filename using the following settings:
Fabreasy setup -> tab Settings ->
a) Use archive folder: Yes
b) Print without without Fabreasy printer toolbar pop-up: Yes
c) File suffix: %date-time%
