  • set gaps between rows to zero
  • more business cards fit on the sheet now, you can increase repeating
  • set the spacing between rows at the point of contact of various business cards (double-clicking the ruler)

  • set marks
  • set one-sided sheet, number of rows 7 and columns 3
  • show Pages for imposition palette
  • drag and drop page from palette to sheet
  • when more positions are selected on the sheet, it is possible to assign page to all selected positions
  • export final PDF into Acrobat

How to Use Force Bleed

  • import PDF; for this example, we want to produce two two-sided leaflets on the sheet
  • set crop marks
  • add another PDF
  • the first PDF has bleed of 2 mm and the second PDF has no bleed
  • on the scale palette set fill
  • when force bleed is activated the PDF without bleed will be scaled to fill the position including bleed, which will be created
  • if you want the resulting bleed to be 3 mm (while maintaining the size of 105 x 148 mm after cutting), turn off automatic positions size and set bleed 3 mm
  • the pages will be scaled and fill the positions including a 3 mm bleed; the trimmed size of pages fills only positions size without bleed if force bleed is deactivated
