Page Resize

 

I'm having trouble resizing some text & cover files that I receive from a customer. The text files come to us as 7.00x10.02" documents, but I need to trim that 0.02" from the bottom before sending it to our printers, The cover files vary in width from about 14" to 15.9", height is always 11". I need to resize all covers to 16x11. I've been passing thses files thru Process Manager for years w/ no problems, but I can't seem to get it right w/ FreeFlow Core.

I've got the resize for the text set up like this-Resize.JPG

And the cover resize like this--

But the documents show no change after running thru my workflow. I must be missing something. Thanks.

Re: Page Resize

If you resize the trimbox then the document dimensions (as they appear in Acrobat) will not change because Acrobat uses the cropbox when displaying the document dimensions.

 

I would suggest resizing the cropbox.

Re: Page Resize

I changed both components to resize the cropbox, but nothing in my documents changed. Output size is exactly the same as the input.

Re: Page Resize

that should not be the case. However, I also know that we have resolved some issues with Resize in the upcoming version so perhaps this is one of those issues.

 

Can you try imposing 1up? That should have a similar effect.

Re: Page Resize

I set the text to impose 1-up on a custom 7x10 press sheet, impose relative to cropbox & vertical alignment set to the top edge. For the cover I made the press sheet 11x16, imposed relative to cropbox & alignment is centered. There was no change in my files after running them thru the workflow.

Re: Page Resize

Can you send me a link to the files via private message? I would like to take a look.
