Imposed A4 Booklet not retaining the desired sheet size

Hi all,

I am very new to FFC and I am trying to make a workflow for imposing an A4 16pp booklet onto SRA3(450mm x 320mm). I have tried what I think should do the trick and all seems fine when it saves to the Output Folder but the sheet size of the outputted PDF is 467.2mm x 304.8mm rather the the intended SRA3 450mm x 320mm.

 

I have atatched the 7 screen shots for inspection.

 

Screen shots 1 to 4, are of the tabs and options within these tabs which I have selected in my attempt to make this work.  Screen shoot 5 is the completed jobs tabs showing that the job was sucsessfull without any warnings.

 

Screen shots 6 and 7 are of the original PDF and outputted PDF respectively. Notice the size indicated at the bottom right of the last screen shot which was taken from Acrobat. It should be SRA3.

 

Thanks you all in advance for your attention...

I am not able to re-create the problem. What SW version are you using? I am using 5.1.0.0. Are there any other nodes in the workflow (Resizing for example)?

Thanks for replying.

 

No, there are no other nodes in the workflow. See Pic.

Re: Imposed A4 Booklet not retaining the desired sheet size

I am able to recreate your output if I have a Secondary Stage in the imposition node that uses a Press Sheet of Tabloid Extra (12X18 inches). I'm guessing your imposition node has the Secondary Stage set without your knowledge. If this is not the source of the problem, you can contact Xerox Customer Support.
