portrait A4 to 2 landscape A5

Hello,

 

I want to cut a portrait A4 into 2 landscape A5 (scan from saddle stich document to original format).

I've duplicated the pages so i can crop the top from the first page and the bottom from the second page but i'm having trouble to crop the top part. The bottom works like a charm with these settings:

How can i crop the top?

The 'To Size Offsets' gives very strange results!?

Changes in 'Placement' does nothing!?

 

Any help would be appreciated

 

Greetings

Wim

Did you try resizing all pages in a single component and setting the vertical alignment to Binding edge?

I would think that would do the trick.

 

If for some reason that does not work you would add another resize component with the following settings:

  • resize to 100% for W and H
  • and pages to Even
  • vertical offset to 148.5mm

Hi Javier,

 

Thanks, got it working.

 

The vertical alignment to Binding edge just added a crop and trim box in the pdf, so i did an impose on A5 after the resize component.

A simple resize to the format of the trim box didn't work!?

Correct - there are some scenarios that are currently problematic with Resize.
