Gutters, margins and crop marks in HqnLayout

This page applies to Harlequin v13.1r0 and later; both Harlequin Core and Harlequin MultiRIP.

Surface margins are automatically enlarged if annotations that do not fit are placed on that edge of the raster. If HorAlign and VertAlign are set to AlignCenter, the opposite margin is increased by the same amount to maintain the position of the page grid. Margins defined in the imposition’s setup are not automatically amended in any way. If the margin is too small to take all of the annotations placed on that edge of the surface, the annotations are clipped.

CropMarks and Bleed form part of the page grid and do not fall within the margins. These extend into the margins, and are clipped if insufficient margin space is available.

These changes make it much easier to reliably achieve front/back registration in two-sided work, because the precise position of the pages in the grid is set by the margins and HorAlign/VertAlign, rather than also being affected by the size of the crop marks selected and the bleed in an unpredictable way.

All gutters (including WTGutter) have always been defined as the distance between the placed pages, without adjusting for the crops selected.
