Shifting

How do I shift an Image?

 

This is what I want to do: We have a mini binder that will bind all of our perfect bound books and we have come to the conclusion that it is easier for the binder if we shift the books. The book comes in two files, cover and body. The cover needs to be shifted on 12x18 to .1250in from the front on landscape. The body prints on 8.5x11 and needs to shift to.1250 from the binding edge and .0625 from the top.

How would i do do this?

I need trim marks around it.

I have a workflow set up for it but it seems to magnify the images and will not impose correctly.

What am I missing?

Re: Shifting

Pretty sure this is as simple as doing a 1up imposition on the required press sheet size with an offset that contains the required shift.

You can add trim marks there as well.

 

Can you post screencaps of the workflow?

Re: Shifting

This looks like it should work. Can you send me the workflow and the files via private message? I would like to take a look.
