Unimpose Reader Spreads - Without Split and Route

Jump to solution

There have been previous Posts that described out to unimpose a Reader Spread using Split and Route components.  These components are part of the Advanced Automation option.  Here is a method using page ranges of the Duplicate and Resize components, which are included with Advanced Prepress.

 

First the original file:

The workflow is:

As the names imply each node will only modify the center pages by using a page range of 2 to -2 (2nd to the last page).  Remember that -1 refers to the last page in a document.  The first and last page will be unaffected.

 

Since each page will be cropped in half and both halves are needed, duplicate the center pages:

Then using Resize, crop the Even pages starting with the 2nd page until the 2nd to last page and only keep the left half.

Now using Resize, crop the Odd pages starting with the 2nd page until the 2nd to last page and only keep the Right half.

8. Resize Center Pages Right (Odd) Placement - small.png

 

The final result are 1 up PDF file pages:

Attached is the FreeFlow Core 5.1 FFC file (in a ZIP) that can be imported using Core Exchange.  And a sample PDF File.

The workflow includes Pause nodes that can be removed after validation on your system.

Though I have one question, I tried what you said with the file we got just to test it out. The file we recieved were in the format 21x21 cm (so the spreads were 42x21 of course). I followed your instructions and also made a new paper size at 21x21 cm, but when I print it, every page is divided up in 4 parts, TubeMate Psiphon Test DPC so in the final PDF the first page wich contained only a centered title were made into four pages. The first page showed the 1/4 of the title in the lower right corner, then 1/4 in the lower left corner, 1/4 in the upper right corner and 1/4 in the upper left corner and so it continued through the whole document with 4 parts for every page.
