Work & Turn workaround
« on: February 13, 2008, 05:27:47 PM »
The version of DynaStrip we've got, [4.5.2], has a restriction on where you can place work & turn sections. Namely, 1st, 2nd, next-but-last, last. That is, if you are trying to do a one-stop impo/pagination in, say, a saddle-stitch. This is occasionally bad news for us...they move the W&Ts, depending on pre-collate requirements.
Here is a workaround. Have both 8pp & 4pp Templates for your binding size/style. Bring in the first batch of 8pp Sheets to take you up to where you want the W&T. Bring in a 4pp Sheet. Bring in the remainder of 8pp Sheets to complete the impo.
Hit the "Apply Pagination Sequence" button in the menu bar. Should then have your paginated impo ready to bring in Source files, with the W&T where you want it.
I got excited about this; but then I need to get a life... :cheesy:
