Overview of Booklet Imposition

Generating output using Booklet Imposition in Connect is simple using Output Presets. Here is a basic How-To along with some tips for generating booklets.

These instructions are for Connect 1.2 and higher. Lower versions had less options and more complex requirements, so if you’re doing booklets, it’s strongly advised to upgrade to 1.2 or higher.

Booklet Imposition Options in Output

The best option for booklet imposition is to create an Output Preset with the appropriate options.

  1. Click File > Print Presets > Output Creation Settings
  2. Choose an existing configuration or select New to create a new one, then click Next
  3. Check the Booklet Imposition option, then click Next
  4. Select the desired type of binding (Perfect, Saddle, One-Up Perfect). These depend on your printer capabilities, check your printer’s user guide to check which is better for you.
  5. Select the desired binding edge.
  6. If using Saddle binding, more options are available. Specifically, you can choose to create a Cover page and to use the first 2 and last 2 pages of your document to add contents to that cover page. Click Next when you’re done choosing these options.
  7. The Imposition Settings are used to fine-tune different settings. In Booklet imposition, some of these options are locked such as the number of repetitions and the page order, since these are required to have specific values for booklet making to work. How would 4-up imposition work in a booklet, I wonder?
  8. Once the options are changed, finish the rest of the pages in the wizard and save this output preset.
