    Here's what I'm trying to do: I have designed a book with 8.5" x 7" pages with the idea that they could be printed 2-up on 8.5" x 14" paper, cut once, stacked and bound. Book to be produced in one-off quantities at any copy shop. To do this I am first interleaving the front half of the PDF pages with the back half, then imposing 2-up onto legal size pages, which gives me the first half of the book at the top of the page and the back half on the bottom, in proper order. I'm using Split for the interleave (odd,even,backmap), and Impose for the 2-up.

    My problem is this: I can't seem to get the Impose tool to do 2-up without scaling down the original pages. I've tried several options variations, but so far, all reduce the original page.

    Am I missing something? Is it possible to use Impose to do 2-up without scaling down the original pages?

    Thanks!
