I am now converting from Processmanager to Core and i found a problem. I need to duplicate pages. We have a job where the customer makes the document one sided, but it should be printet two sided with same image.
I Can`t se a solution for this in Core. I have tried to make a imposition for this, but I will have to make a lot of them since quantity of pages is different from time to time.
I also used the duplicat function for business cards in Processmanger.
Where did you sind that Thomas?
I have searched the Help file witouth any succes and there is no components called duplicate....
I have version 18.104.22.168
I think there are few ways to do this:
One is to use a split node; send the same pages to two different branches and then join them back together to one job, effectively doubling the job.
The other one is to use a save node to save the pages and then insert them back again using the variable for the saved name.
And you can use the impose node and use manual imposition to call the same back more often than once.
Correct me if i am wrong here:
Splitt join works if you have documents with 4+4 not 4+0 if its more than one page. in this jobb i have 12 A4 4+0 that should be printet with same image on both sides. I could probaly make a splitt for each page, bur the variables are to many and takes a lot of tim eto make. On business cards is this easier to do, bur not as fast as using duplicate.
I will have the same problem with Save insert on this particular jobb.
I can also use Manual imposition, but the variables are too many. This jobb is from 3 pages and up each time. So making impositions for every possible combinations takes a lot of time and a big risk for error.
The duplicate function is the easiest and i have more controll. Fewer componenst to hold track on.
Pardon the long delay - I never received email notification of your reply.
To duplicate pages per the FFProM screen above you doa 1up imposition with automatic sheet size. Set the page order to manual with two entries:
The imposition will put in page 1, then put in page 1 (both as they came in since you are doing 1up with automatic sheet size).
THe imposition will then increment by 1 and repeat the pattern.
It will do this until it parses through all document pagaes. That will enable the page duplication you want.
