Page Resize

Jump to solution

 

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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