Setting Booklet Imposition

Booklet imposition lets you print the pages of a document in a booklet style. The pages are arranged and printed in a different order than in the original document so that they appear in the correct sequence after they are folded and bound.
    Important:
  • Some functions might not be available when the imposition is set to Booklet.

  • Some job settings might be removed or modified when the imposition is set to Booklet.

To specify booklet imposition:
  1. In the settings area on the right, click Impose.
  2. In the Impose panel, click Booklet.
