If in the field: Options and settings > tab: General, switch: Paste the pages automatically when changing the type of sheet and mark (refer to the leaflet imposition mode) is On (turned to YES), then the program while changing the type of double-sided sheet to another double-sided sheet recalculates the location of the pages on the sheets you have occupied, according to the rules for the distribution on the new selected sheet.
If it is OFF (turned to NO), than the pages will remain in their places (only rotation of the use will change).
In the examples below: the sheets are filled with four double-sided works (pairs of 1/2, 3/4, 5/6 and 7/8 pages) duplicated 2x.
Example 1: changing only the way of shifting to the other side (of the mark): Initial state: filled in whole press sheet by the side mark. After switching the sheet to the double-sided full sheet, but by the front mark, the program puts the pages in use in accordance with the new schedule. Switching back to the sheet by the side brand will restore the initial schedule. The program also works in this way when switching between half press sheets (example 2).
Example 3: changing of sheet’s type (WHOLE/HALF PRESS SHEET) with keeping the way of shifting to the other side (with keeping the mark):
Example 4: changing of sheet’s type (WHOLE/HALF PRESS SHEET) with changing the way of shifting to the other side (with changing the mark):
Example 5: double-sided shifting sequence: the next shifts of the whole press sheet by the side mark to the whole press sheet by the side mark, and next: to the half press sheet by the side mark and the half press sheet by the front mark. Returning to the output sheet will also give the proper layout, but different from the output file. Returning to the same layout, like in the output file – it will be possible after repeating exactly the same shift order.
After switching between different types of whole press sheets, the unfilled sheets are deleted (with all empty uses).
Note! In certain specific situations, making subsequent shifts and returning to the initial worksheet will also give a correct result, but it is different from the initial state (it depends on the number and sequence of the shifts).
