Re: [NTG-context] Is it possible to define a custom imposition schema? (sure it is, but how?)

As a follow-up, just in case someone will search the archive for a similar problem, this is my “solution”, regardless of the question if the imposition scheme is really suitable for binding or not. It's quite an hack, but it seems to work and is way simpler for a profane like me to create a

Hello there. I'd need a custom imposition schema, just like the 2*4*2, but first the sheets will be folded, then inserted in signatures of 16 pages, and then finally bound. (They said the machine can fold only one sheet). I came up with 3 solutions (or 3 hacks, as you wish): 1. psutils/pstops

Hi Marco, If I understand correctly what you need is a system which is basically based on booklet-printing but each booklet should be restricted to 16 pages. In this case you might try \setuparranging[2*2*4] This scheme put two pages on the front and two pages on the backside of a sheet of

To my knowledge the printer will have more hand-work than accepting that e.g. the 2*4*2 or the 2*2*4 scheme is used. - Again, if I understand you correctly, then the folding machine can only do a single fold. So after assembling the section with two folded sheets still a manual fold must be
