Imposition Plugin Discussion

Most needed use cases:

  • booklet printing:
    Arrange original pages on print sheets which are at least twice as large as the original page; make sure the backside pages end up at the correct position and orientation.
    Take care of bleed areas and crop marks.
  • business cards:
    Replicate original page in a fixed grid on the print sheet; take care that the backside matches.
  • n-folds:
    Scribus already allows reader spreads for a limited choice of n-folds. Provide a simple imposition for these on a print sheet.
