Symbolic designation of pages on sheets
Pages on sheets are marked in a schematic way, in the form of rectangles of dimensions of the size of the use. The colors of the rectangles have only an auxiliary meaning. For double-sided printing (all types) identical colors indicate the use of falling ones, i.e. for example 1 and 2 sides of the same page. When impositioning books, similar colors (e.g. light yellow and dark yellow) concern pages lying on the same "4-Pages".
The value before the colon is the page number in the file list (column S). Values in parentheses indicate the angle of page rotation in a clockwise direction. If the angle designation is made with the sign ° (degree); it means that the rotation and orientation of the page is consistent with the rotation and orientation of the use. If the angle designation is * (asterisk), it means that the page placed on the use is different (vertical/horizontal) than use and has been additionally rotated by 90°.
The next row contains the designation of how the PDF page is aligned with the corner of the user (CC- centrally, LT - the common top left, LB - the common bottom left, RT - the common top right, RB - the common bottom right). When impositioning books, the page alignment method is not marked - all pages are centered (CC).
White frames with a corner rounded inwards indicate odd use. With the corner folded out - even use. Two dots ("after the puncher") help in determining the orientation of the use (horizontal/vertical): located on the long side, they mean the vertical side, with the shorter one: horizontal. The black color of the frames means a manual change in the use’s rotation or the page with the corner of the use.
Use without a frame, but colored means that the corresponding use for duplex printing is busy. Use in white (with only the designation of page corners and rotation of the use) means empty (free) use.

Example 1: three vertically orientated uses: left occupied by the page placed in the first (odd) row of the Table of imposition pages, middle - free (empty), right: occupied by the page placed in the second (even) row of the Table of imposition pages. They are all on the first page of the imposition sheet. Rotation of all = 0°.
Example 2: Left use (vertical orientation of all uses) occupied by a horizontal page placed in the fourth (even) row of the Table of imposition pages, middle - occupied by a page with vertical orientation, placed in the first row (with altered corner alignment on: centrally in horizontal and vertical), right: occupied by the page placed in the second (even) row of the Table of imposition pages (rotated by 180°). Uses with alignment and rotation entered by the program operator have changed the color of the frame to black.
Example 3: The uses on the other side of the sheet (duplex printing by the side mark) are empty. The same use colors show where two pages of the same use are on the sheet. There are also visible side markings. Below: the same layout for double-sided printing by the front mark.
Example 4: With light yellow and dark yellow (also light blue and dark blue) are marked pages from the same leaflet (on the above picture, an example of the imposition of a 16-page notebook in a book imposition module).
