Star Target Marks
Imposition Wizard lets you add star target marks to imposed pages. You can specify your own artwork for them or use the built–in one.
To add a star target mark click the "+" button at the top of the “Marks” panel and select the “Star Target” option in the popup menu:
The parameters of the star target marks are displayed on the right:
- Relative to content — lets you switch between adding the marks around pages or next to the edges of sheets (see below);
- Top/Bottom left/right — the options let you configure where the marks are placed;
- Print on — lets you choose if you want to print the marks on front or back side of the sheets, or both. This only works in duplex mode, otherwise the marks are always printed;
- Image — allows you to select the pre–defined star target mark image to use (see below);
- Distance — defines the distance between the marks and the page block or sheet edges, depending on the Relative to content option;
- Scale — lets you adjust the size of the marks.
Relative to Content
This option lets you choose between placing the star target marks around the pages block:
or next to the edges of the sheet:
The Distance parameter works the opposite way depending on the selected mode, effectively pushing the marks away of the element they are attached to.
Star Target Images
Imposition Wizard comes with a single sample star target image pre–installed, you can add your own images if needed.
Click the Open star targets folder link at the bottom of the right panel to open the folder with the images:
You can also click File → Useful Folders → Star Targets item in the main menu of Imposition Wizard. A Finder or Explorer window will pop up with the star targets folder. Copy your PDF files there and restart Imposition Wizard. Then you will be able to select your images from the drop–down list of the Images parameter.
