Step and Repeat Imposition Layout

This layout repeats the same page across the sheet and is widely used for business cards printing. Both Standalone and Acrobat versions of Imposition Wizard support step and repeat imposition. You can enable it by selecting “Step and Repeat” in the Layout drop–down list at the Layout tab of the right panel:
