Did You Know?

Did you know you can mix multiple Fold Sheets on a Press Sheet?

Apogee Impose

Auto Impose can be used very automatically to create imposition layouts. Sometimes, however, it is more economic to manually place multiple impositions on the same sheet. There are a few tricks to making this work.

Mixed impositions with Apogee Impose

Three examples: 1) two eight-page books on one Work and Turn sheet, 2) a twelve-page (8+4) book and a single sheet two out on one Work and Turn sheet, 3) a four-page full size and a twelve-page half size on one Sheetwise form.

Multiple Parts

Enter the total number of pages (for all parts). At the product level, click on the pencil icon. Change the binding style to Stacked or Mixed.

Mixed impositions with Apogee Impose

Create additional parts in the Product tab for each of the individual impositions that will be placed on the sheet.

Edit the individual parts by double clicking on each one, and check the box to Keep pages on separate signatures. Also check Number pages independently if desired (if the sections do not assemble into the same imposition).
