Orientation Mixture Problem

Hi,

 

I have submitted a file into FreeFlow Core that contains a number of A3 posters (several portrait and 1 landscape) and 1 oversize A3. All that is setup in the workflow is 1 press sheet size (SRA3), automatic orientation and one sided. Under Layout, the Page Order is Repeated and it is Auto Rows and Columns. Then imposed relative to Trim Box (which all the posters have).

 

I would expect, based on what I have that it would imposed all posters 1up and rotate the landscape poster 90 degress, however, when I look at the imposed file it has done everything correct except that it has not rotated the landscape so each edge of the poster is missing off the sheet.

 

Any ideas?

 

I have got around it for now by rotating the landscape posters in acrobat before submitting the file to FreeFlow, still would like to solve this though, as would be useful if have a lot of mixture orientation files.

 

Regards

David

Hi David,

You can easily correct page orientation using Rotate Pages component. Attached you can find screenshots with example preset.

Re: Orientation Mixture Problem

Thanks for your suggestion but my understanding of FreeFlow is that it does best fit, so it should automatically rotate the landscape page to fit it on the press sheet, as i still need the landscape poster to print landscape. I tried it on its own and it rotated automatically, so why when you have a mixture of portrait and landscape does it not do best fit on both orientations?

Re: Orientation Mixture Problem

Impose node is a document level tool and effectively it looks for the first page of the document and uses this as the values for the rest of the document. If you have different pages (orientation, size) then you need to deal with this with other nodes to bring the document to a uniform shape before applying imposition.
