The Imposition Companion For Adobe InDesign
Adobe InDesign’s job is to arrange text and graphics onto InDesign ‘Pages’. But if you are producing a folded booklet, or similar publication, you need a reliable tool to rearrange these Pages onto larger sheets, ready for folding and binding.
InDesign has a command called Print Booklet that can handle simple “2 up” booklet cases, with some quirks and limitations. But if you are struggling with Print Booklet, give IDImposer a try. We think you will be glad that you did.
IDImposer can do many types of impositions. Here is a simple 12-page nested booklet layout. The left column of printer spreads represent the ‘front’ side of a sheet, and the right column of spreads represent the ‘back’ side of the sheet.
More examples can be found here. And IDImposer is extensible, so that you can define your own custom layouts.
IDImposer is now free. Just download and install the latest version.
If you like IDImposer and use it regularly, please consider donating to the project, on the ‘Licensing‘ page. Thank you!
