DOM (document object model) manipulation is a technique
for editing a design file by directly manipulating its XML code.
DOM manipulation gives you more control over variable design elements,
including changing their content and appearance; you can even create
new elements on an as-needed basis.
Scene7 lets you manipulate the DOM of a Scene7 FXG template by
way of URL commands after the template is published. Design elements
in the FXG template are manipulated by passing commands through
the URL. In this way, you can dynamically manipulate and add attributes
To use DOM manipulation, you create s7:elementIDs in your Illustrator
file before converting it to a Scene7 FXG file and uploading it
Important: When using DOM manipulation commands, all
values passed in must be URL-encoded.
Illustrator Plug-in for Web-to-Print (for converting Illustrator
files) converts to FXG 2.0. For information about this specification,
