File Menu

  • New imposition – Creates a new, blank imposition and closes other impositions (will ask whether to save these prior to closing according to other settings).
  • Open imposition... – Opens an imposition including its pages (closing previous impositions) or loads a PDF or images into pages for imposition (replacing former pages). Templates can be opened using this item as well, however, without changing the pages for imposition.
  • Save imposition – Saves current imposition (including pages for imposition).
  • Save as... – Saves current imposition including pages for imposition as a new file under a different name.
  • Open as template... – Opens a previously saved imposition without loading its pages for imposition while keeping the current pages for imposition opened.
  • Save as template – Saves current imposition without its pages for imposition.
  • Add imposition to the current – Has the same function as the "+" button on the More impositions tabs – Adds another imposition to the imposition group.
  • Add imposition from template... – Also adds another imposition but unlike the previous option, which makes the opened imposition appear like the currently opened imposition, will make it take on the appearance of the selected imposition (its pages will not be loaded in this case) or template. This item cannot be used to load a file containing a group of impositions.
  • Recent templates / Recent impositions – Opens some of the recently used impositions or templates.
  • Import – Loads pages for imposition from a PDF or images. If some pages are already loaded gives the user an option to choose if the newly loaded pages should replace the older ones, if they should be added to the older ones or they should form a new page group. Multiple PDF files or images can be imported at the same time. PDF files and images can also be imported by dragging from any file manager and dropping into Montax Imposer to the Pages palette or to the main work area.
  • Export imposition into PDF – Creates the resulting PDF from the imposition.
  • Export options – allows rotation of output sheet during export (independently front and back side). If you are using ProHot version, the setting of rotation at the time of creating or editing the hotfolder is stored to the template of this watched folder.
  • Option Separate export is available only if you use numbering and it is described in more detail in the chapter Separate Export.
  • Exit – Terminates the program.
