2.1. First imposition

Execution of imposition in the program Impozycjoner consists of:

  1. setting the use’s size (manual or based on the loaded PDF-file);
  2. setting the sizes of uses’ grid (the number of columns * the number of rows) – manual or automatic;
  3. selecting the appropriate sheet’s type: one-sided, double-sided half or whole sheet - with the simultaneous choice of the mark (so: the way the sheet is shifted to the other side) front or side;
  4. manual or automatic filling of use’s grid with PDF-pages from the Imposition Pages Table.

The easiest way to determine the appropriate size of the use is leaving it to the program. If the option Change the size of the use after loading the first PDF is switched on in the Options and settings dialog box, the program will change the default dimensions visible after starting the program to the size of the TrimBox area of the first page of the first loaded PDF-file.

The number of columns and rows of the use’s grid should be so, that the imposition image fits the sheet of paper intended for printing the given work. The size of the print area is visible on the upper bar of the program. While impositioning not typical sizes, you can use a tool called Arrange economically.

Taking up of one use

Manual filling of use’s grid of PDF-pages by clicking (selecting) the appropriate row of the Imposition Pages Table (i.e. selecting the page) and placing it in the appropriate cell of the grid by clicking on that cell.

Changing the use’s color (from white) and its filling with a white frame means that the use has been taken up by the page, that is situated in the tabel row equal to the number standing before the colon. The number after the colon indicates the angle of rotation of the use.

After choosing the double-sided printing option: Whole press sheet, in the sheet preview, it’s both sides are visible. The goods on the other side of the sheet are colored only when the proper use on the first page is busy.

After choosing the double-sided printing option: Half press sheet, the uses on the proper second part of the sheet is colored only, if the proper use on the first part is busy.

If the orientation of the use is equal to the orientation of the page, than the page is not rotated (its rotation = use’s rotation). If it is different – than the rotation is equal to the use’s rotation +90°.

Filling the range of use

The page placed in the selected Imposition Pages Table row can be placed on the sheet with the mouse also in several cells at once. The beginning of the range (i.e. the selected row and column) determines the pressing of the left mouse button, the end - releasing the left mouse button, after moving it over another use.

Selecting the range of use with the SHIFT key pressed will add an additional + 180 ° rotation to all selected ones. The right mouse button selection will change the range of some commands in the user’s context menu (from single use to the range of uses).

Filling two pages of a sheet at once

Concerning double-sided prints: placement of the impositioned page on any side of the sheet, while pressing the F2 key, will cause that the next page of the sheet will be used according to the following rule:

  • if the page being placed is an odd page in the file (1, 3, 5...) and in the Imposition Pages Table, in the next row there is a page from the same file (2, 4, 6... respectively) then this page will be automatically placed on symmetrical ("falling") use for the current occupied area.
  • if the page being placed is an even page in the file (2, 4, 6...) and in the Imposition Pages Table, the previous line has a page from the same file (1, 3, 5..., respectively), then this page will be automatically placed on symmetrical ("falling") use for the current occupied area.

The function of filling the sheet while holding down the F2 key also works while filling the range of use.
