Newbie: Imposing for Cut And Stack, Per side offset


I`m now exploring a trial of FF Core, we are using it with our DP180.

Trying to impose 8.5x11 2up on 11x17, by default the result is that the left sheet is slightly moved to the left approx 1-2mm, our application requires the exact same position for both the left and the right sheets.

I`m not exactly sure causes the shift however I was wondering how we can adjsut the position/offset of only one sheet.

Appreciate your help

Re: Newbie: Imposing for Cut And Stack, Per side offset

Assuming you have the Advanced PrePress license, here is an idea. The idea is to trim a mm. off the right edge of the odd pages and then impose. To do this build a WF composed of a Resize node and an Imposition Node. The Resize Node have setup to:

  1. Placement:
    1. Apply Only to Odd Pages
    2. Horizontal Alignment = Left
  2. Contents:
    1. Trim off right edge by .255 in (or 1 mm)

The Imposition Layout to have:

  1. 2 columns
  2. Cell Cluster = On
  3. Horizontal Alignment = Right Edge -- assuming Landscape press sheet

See screensnaps.
