Program Modes

The program works in three modes: Extended, Standard and Automatic. In Extended mode all functions are available at the cost of using a large amount of controls and it is intended primarily for complicated tasks in offset printing. The extended mode can be enabled in Settings. Standard mode displays features that are usually used in digital printing. Automatic mode is suitable for simple, quick and clear impositions.

Features like splitting into signatures – Groups of sheets, Correction of paper thickness, More impositions and Automatic page assignment are not available in Standard mode. It is also possible to work with only one "Pages for imposition" palette and some types of Marks are not available.

Of course, the options of impositions are limited in the mode compared to standard mode, but it can be used for many typical impositions.
