Imposition Wizard lets you mark page boundaries by using a Trim Line mark. The mark adds a thin line around each page and you can configure its appearance for easier trimming the pages later.
To add a trim line mark click the "+" button in the “Marks” panel and select the “Trim Line” option in the popup menu:
By default trim lines are not visible in preview as they are added with magenta color and are covered by the page frames displayed in preview. You can turn the page frames off in settings, but here we simply made the mark bigger by using the Offset parameter and made it cyan instead of magenta for better visibility.
Below is the list of parameters you can adjust for trim line marks:
- Width — the thickness of the trim line mark lines;
- Offset — a margin between the page and the trim line;
- Color — one of the pre–defined colors for added trim line;
- Print on — here you can choose if you want the trim line on front or back side of the sheets, or both. This only works in duplex mode, otherwise the line is always added.
