Gap Crop Marks
Besides normal crop marks Imposition Wizard lets you add gap crop marks that are printed in the middle of the gaps between the pages.
To add gap crop marks click the "+" button at the top of the “Marks” panel and select the “Gap Crop Marks” option in the popup menu:
The parameters of the gap crop marks are displayed on the right:
- Margin — the distance between the page boundaries and the gap crop marks;
- Length — the length of the gap crop marks;
- Width — the width (thickness) of the gap crop mark lines;
- Color — lets you choose one of the pre–defined colors to display the gap crop marks;
- Print on — configures where to print the gap crop marks: on front or back side of the sheets, or on both. This only works in duplex mode, otherwise the marks are always printed.
The gap crop marks work pretty much the same way as the normal crop marks and get hidden if there is not enough space for them.
Consider reading the crop marks tutorial for more information about the crop marks.
