you can create Printer spreads manually, I did a 44 page booklet that way, pretty easy really, you might just take you paper fold it as needed then re-create in Scribus

Hmmm... I am having difficulty visualizing that. I'm probably just dense...  ???

See if this helps.  As far as I understand, Scribus only sets up documents in reader spreads or individual pages.  You need imposition software to create printer spreads unless you set it up manually in Scribus and only having four pages would be easy to do.  First 11x17 would be page four on the left and page one on the right, Second 11x17 would be page two on the left and page three would be on the right.

How do invoke reader spreads and printer spreads? My goal is to create a document with 4 pages on a single, 11" x17" sheet of paper that when folded in the middle will yield in an 8.5" x 11 document with 4 pages of content. I searched the wiki and the forum, but didn't find these terms.

Thanks,
Jerry

Hey, it worked.  I had it turned on in the Preferences but apparently not for the Document Setup?

Anyway, thanks.  Always the little things, innit? :)

I think jPDFtk is one of the more competent solutions, but it takes a lot to "design" a imposition in it. No real GUI, but rather using numbers.

I think PDF/X requires that color management is turned on.

PDF Generation / [SOLVED] Hit and Miss PDF Export
« Last post by abizrihays on May 18, 2018, 06:42:01 pm »
I have two files.  Actually four, but they're two sets of two.  Two files are straight image files.  No text, no shapes, just an image.  The other two are primarily text files with an image here and there.  I want to export them to PDF-X1a

A couple months ago, I was able to export the first image and text file no problem.  Preflight said I was good, exported according to printer specs, hunky dory flowers and butterflies.

This week, I'm trying to export the second image/text file set.  I got them set up the exact same way as the first, preflight says I'm good across the board, PDF, PDFX, PS, all of it.  But when I go to export, PDFX is not an option, just the basic three.  My image files are the same size, same resolution, exported the same, same file type, same import, same across the board (I got smart and wrote things down once I got them to work the first time).  The text files are also the same, etc. etc.

When I opened a brand new project and threw something quick together that I knew was good, preflight says it's good, but still no PDFX export option.  When I go back into old projects, the option is there.

It seems as though all my old stuff that was good is still good, but none of my new stuff is working.  The only change I can think of is that I installed Ghostscript, but the problem was there before that (I only installed GS because I thought it might have some bearing on the problem even though the manual says no, but meh.  Turning over rocks and all that).  I also got a new computer between then and now, but I would think that if that was the problem, then I shouldn't be able to export my old stuff either.

Thoughts?

ulfa,

you can send me a private message with a link where i can download a file or ask me for my email address where you can send the .sla file.

but i'm more and more thinking that people who are not ready to upload a file for inspection (because they fear being stolen?) should send me 10 units of a common currency (dollars, euros, franks, pounds, ...) per post mail...

or i should setup a tipping account somewhere? : - )
i have to think about it...

now, you already have set me a private message and you just got a reply from with instructions...

ciao
