How to add a new page size to Imposition Preset

Happy Monday!

 

In the dropdown list at the bottom of the Edit An Imposition Preset page, how do we add a new size such as 2" x 3.5"?

The Press Sheet Size has a Custom option which you can use to add additional press sheet sizes.

The size menu under the preview has a similar option so you can see how a document of the defined size would be imposed.

Thanks Javier.

 

Yes, I can add a new Press Sheet size to the right side drop down list but can't seem to add a new Page Size to the drop down list on the bottom. I must always re-enter 2" x 3.5" if I want to size the step and repeat pattern. FYI, we are using 3.0.1.2.

Two things

 

1. understand that's an irritant. It's a little better in FFC v4 but not quite where I would want it to be.

2. That size is there for preview purposes only. The imposition engine will use the size of the selected box during imposition.

No worries. To be fair, I must tip my hat to your UI people. FF Core is otherwise a welcoming place. Maybe they could help out the people who build uPlan.

Re: How to add a new page size to Imposition Preset

Sorry to post on an old topic but I have the same issue. I have created an imposition and need the files to impose on a 12.5x19 sheet. I have selected custom size and input the size and all seems to be working. I close the imposition run my workflow and it imposes on a 12x18. I go back into the workflow and open the imposition and it shows 12x18 and I can not change it back. Any ideas on how to get it to actually impose on 12.5x19?

The custom size should appear in the menu along with the existing press sheet sizes
