Separating pages
« on: April 10, 2017, 06:23:16 pm »

I made a sla for a brochure of 4 pages A5 in one sla-document. However, I find no way to print it correctly with my printer and have not really the time (and the nerf) to find out.
So I wanted to separate the 4-page file into 4 individual files, which I then save individually as a pdf.

Then I create 2 new A4 landscape slas and put on one container-page  page 1 on the left half,  page 4  the right half, wheras on the other contaniner-page page 2 left, page 3 right.

How is it possible to split these 4 A5 pages into individual slas?
Have you first consulted the Manual? You can probably find the solution there.

Why do you want to do it with SLAs?

Why not export to PDF and use one of the many PDF manipulation tools to create the imposition you want?,_PostScript_and_Imposition_tools

why not copy paste the content in a new A4 .sla with 0 margins and one  column / row guide?

for long term jobs, i would go for the pdf manipulation nermander suggests... but if it's the first and last time you're doing that, just copy paste it..
