  1. support imposing of multiple PDF documents together (IW)

    Rather than requiring a multi-page PDF, you should be able to drop multiple separate PDFs into your hot folder or into the program, and it should work the same as a multi-page PDF. This would eliminate a middle step for some and allow for more efficient workflows.

        A version of IW to sit on a server and watch hotfolders for jobs to impose then output results to output folders... Different projects/imposition types could have different hotfolders.

            An imposition option which fits pages to the sheet size with a choice of minimum waste or simplest cutting. Even if pages are different sizes.

              • Retain PDF version and format

                Rather than rewriting the PDF to version 1.3 (stand alone), or 1.6 (Acrobat). It would be nice if the same PDF version was retained in the newly imposed PDF file. This would be especially useful when the original PDF contains transparency. Also helpful would be to retain the same PDF object structure. This would benefit those in the variable data printing world who use the PDF/VT format to optimize their rip caching when printing.

                    • cover

                      Wizard would be fantastic if there would be choice in Booklet section to impose separately cover (first, second, pre-last, last) / inside pages (all except cover) / all (see attachment)

                      It would be very useful coz usually brochure comes in one pdf and cover almost always is printed on thicker paper.
                      And when we print - we just select ODD, then for other side of whole quantity EVEN. And it’s not possible when cover is on another paper thickness.

                      (I even made picture of how it could look:)

                        • Two or more booklets repeated by page

                          Being able to insert two or more booklets repeated by page.
                          You can do it in this demo version, but we first generate a booklet imposition and save it as pdf. Then, we opened the imposition recorded and generate a new one with two repeated impositions per sheet. And so we have repeated the two booklets per page.
                          It would all be easier if we could do it directly in the "Imposition Settings" menu with the ability to manage the distances between crop marks.

                            The booklet layout defaults to low-folio lip imposition, and I don't see any way to change this in the options.

                            • "Montage" or ability to step the artwork and rotate each art as a different angle. Or be able to gang multiple sizes on one sheet

                              Montage would fill the sheet (step and repeat at different angles or gang different size pages onto one sheet) Or to be able to specify you want 2 of the 6 same size artwork flipped 90 degrees without rotating the other 4.

                              • Creep by scaling rather than by shifting pages

                                Often, especially if there are pages with images that spread across the spine, it is not ideal to creep (or shingle) by shifting pages into or away from the spine. In these cases, the best solution is to scale the pages horizontally. As far as I know, the only commercial software that allows this is Preps. It would be great to see such a feature available in a "value-for-money" application like Imposition Wizard.

                                  I was able to put a dot in the center of the page with the software I used to use to assist in separating printing books.

                                  • automatic page duplication within multilateral documents to prepare imposing

                                    Sometimes i have multilateral documents which have to be imposed like this: 2 sets per sheet where each set has 4 pages (2 front - 2 back). So when i impose a multilateral A5 document on an A3 sheet with double sided printing and i cut it in half i'd like to get 2 multilateral staples with 4 pages on a sheet. To do this i have to duplicate each side once to impose it right.

                                    Tried it with shuffe (althoug i have 50+ pages) but it won't do the job - it sets the wrong pages on the back…

                                    • single cut 2up with page order reversed on right hand side

                                      see the layout method demonstrated here:
                                      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVUikLN0KfU
                                      This allows 2 copies of a book with covers to be printed using only a single cut
