Hi all,


since i upgraded to X6 i cannot do imposition anymore, using print merge.


Before i set a page with lets say A5 with the layout, and then in the printmerge, i would put 4up (four A5), and it went well, using (colate and cut as well).


Now look at my atached file, the first page stays diferent size, why the hell??

I cannot understand why it does this now, anybody as any ideia??

The contents of the page seem to be the same size, just the cropmarks wrong.

Does it actually print the cropmarks like that, or is the error just on the screen?

yeah thats exactlly right, it prints as it is.


Its so stupid.....

Very strange. Print merge (from four A5 pages to SRA3) seems to be working normally here: I go to print preview and set up a fresh 2x2 imposition:

Even if I try to reduce the print size for page 1 the crop marks stay unmoved:

Have you tried printing to a different printer? Or maybe to bullzip PDF printer, which is what I actually used for the above test (though I get the same with a physical printer).



Xerox 700

no, will try that.


with corel X5 i didnt get these issues.


will try and see the results

look a quick A6.


looks like the first page marks are at A6, but the others are A5.

Are you using a pre-made imposition template? Perhaps one that was created for X5 (and so might not be fully compatible with X6) ?

I am just creating a new one, by adding a row and a column in the toolbar. But you should get the same when selecting the 2x2 imposition from the dropdown.


No, i always use new ones
