The bindery guy is convinced that sheetwise means we have ink almost all the way to the corners. We are using the sheet wise.

He's been printing for longer than I have and still doesn't know the differences in forms. Turn, tumble, whatever, it's all the same in his head. It's also never his fault but that's another story...
Speed doesn't kill, rapidly becoming stationary is the problem

I'd rather have stories told than be telling stories of what I could have done.

It's more like grip, grip, grip, noise, then spin and 2 feet in and feel shame.

Reminds me of a genius years ago, was doing film compositing using a turnis board (not sure how to spell that, but imagine manual step and repeat with pins on both ends) and he was rotating the film 180 between each exposure. When I questioned it he let me know the layout was...
ready for this?

One of our pressmen actually jokes about work and swirl layouts. Mainly to the bindery guy to keep him confused but that's really not a hard task.

I'm sure this topic has been solved, and we've all gone on to discuss other things (like why my kids are only getting toys this year with fewer than 5 pieces and don't make noise), but in a pinch, if it's not cooperating, create independent pages and hand number them to create a phony work and turn form in with a sheetwise template.

In XMF it's more steps and you got to input your position

Except when the Pressroom Mgr comes back with the job, like just happened, and needs the Cover W&T for some reason, then the Move Sheet to End is like freakin' unicorn magic to them!!

Have you done Pagination Mode yet?

Re: 12pg Impo got me like Huh??

Reply #28
Maybe? Have I? I'm not sure, do I start an impo differently to get into Pagination mode? I saw your earlier thread on it, but I wasn't using XMF at the time, I'll go back & see if it's familiar now.

Diddler gave me some instructions with Screen shots I will find them and get them to you
I'm a little sick today but I will get it to you by next week for sure!

I'm so grateful for Diddler showing me this, you can use it for everything (which I don't)
but where it is the most useful is when you have different sheet sizes.
I'm pretty comfortable with it now. It's all about the Stripping sheet templates
being perfect before you start. I have a sets of Stripping sheet templates that just work
beautifully 
sheesh I'm a little delirious (sick) :laugh:
