HqnImpose2 OneUp objective

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

This objective is provided for those cases where the imposition procset is being used as a vehicle for applying crop marks or other extra features, but where no imposition of pages is required.

/OneUp is the default objective. An example of its use follows and is valid for all versions of the Harlequin RIP:

  /Objective /OneUp
  /CropMarks true
>> /HqnImpose2 /ProcSet findresource /HqnInitImpose get exec

/OneUp has three strategies:


This is the default and is exactly the same as the /OneUp shipped in the HqnImpose2 procset with earlier versions of the Harlequin RIP. It does not override the rotation settings defined on the Page Setup dialog.


This acts on the five standard aspects. If using the /BestFit aspect,, you must define MaxHeight and MaxWidth; it is taken as an instruction to rotate the page by 90 degrees if the page is taller than it is wide and MaxHeight is smaller than MaxWidth, and so on for similar cases.


This applies a number of adjustments to the page scale and position in turn:

  • You may apply scaling at the page level (rather than at the sheet). Define ScaleAcross and ScaleUp to set the scale factor. Both default to 1.
  • The page within the sheet is mirrored if MirrorPage is set to true . Default is false .
  • The page is rotated by the value of ArbitraryRotation in degrees; positive values rotate anti-clockwise; negative values rotate clockwise. Values must fall within the  -45 to +45° range. The sheet is automatically enlarged to prevent the corners of the rotated page from being clipped. The default value is 0.
  • The OneUp objective with the placement strategy does not take account of aspect.

An example follows:

  /Objective /OneUp
  /Strategy /OneUpWithAspect
  /Aspect /BestFit
  /MaxWidth 1800
  /MaxHeight 1200
>> /HqnImpose2 /ProcSet findresource /HqnInitImpose get exec
