View Full Version : Signature spacing

does anyone know of a way , when working on a signature , in Preps, that you can make the space between the A side and B side greater? We started building signatures to web width, and when we add any marks that are relative to plate size, the marks over lap each other on sides.

Yes, I have run into that from time to time. If you turn on tiling (File>Fitting/Tiling Setup), then make sure your Profile has the correct plate size, then click on the tiling button (lower right of the Template tool box). This will show you how your sigs lay against the plate size. In the process. it will move the sigs apart to make room for the plates. After turning the View Tiles tool off, the sigs seem to keep the added space that was created between them.

Good luck!

It has done it right from Preps 4 on and is extremely annoying.

I wish they would hurry up and tidy it up.
