The xml files in this folder are hopefully useful on their own,
and are also examples of how you can make your own PageSequence files
IDImposer 11 Pro Edition
Description of the IDImposer PageSequence format:
pagesWide : number of Pages to place next to each other horizontally on one side of a Sheet. pagesHigh : number of Pages to place above each other vertically on one side of a Sheet. A simple 2Up PageSequence has pagesWide="2" and pagesHigh="1". blockPagesWide : think of a "block" as a "sub-Sheet" -- a complete block of pages that is cut apart from the other blocks and folded independently. blockPagesWide is then the width, in pages, of a block. blockPagesHigh : the height, in pages, of a block of a Sheet. blockPages : The number of pages in a block, including the Back side pages. That is, blockPages = blockPagesWide * blockPagesHigh * 2; blocksPerSheet : number of sub-Sheets per Sheet. paperFlip : 'Horizontal' or 'Vertical' -- the direction of the paper flip after printing the Fronts and before printing the Backs. <Signature> : represents the layout of a collection of sheets that are folded together as one unit.
pageNumberOffset : amount to be added to each relative page number in the Signature to get the actual page numbers specified by this Signature. nSheetsInSignature : the number of sheets included in this Signature. sigNumber : numbering starts with 0 like : if present, tells IDImposer that this Signature is just like a previous Signature (numbering from N=0). In this case, the only other property needed to describe the group is 'pageNumberOffset' -- the "Front" data is taken from previous Signature N. <Front> : 'pagesWide' by 'pagesHigh' values that represent the Front side Reader Page numbers for the group ... E.g., "4 1" for 2Up Perfect Bound, with 1 sheet per signature. <Back> : 'pagesWide' by 'pagesHigh' values that represent the Back side Reader Page numbers for the group ... E.g., "2 3" for 2Up Perfect Bound, with 1 sheet per signature, assuming horizontal flip of the stack of sheets between printing the Fronts and the Backs. If an 'R' follows the number, the corresponding Page will be rotated 180 degrees on the Flat, which is what you want to do if you flip the stack vertically instead of horizontally between printing Fronts and Backs, or if the Layout implies a horizontal fold.
- IDImposer infers the full PageSequence for the current job
from the 1st Signature in the PageSequence file.
Blank pages are added to the temporary source document,
if necessary, to make the imposition padded out to the next
- Pages are numbered from 1, to be consistent with InDesign's
