That is a good idea. I use multivalent for imposition and it seems that there is no loss of quality. It seems to work fine.

But I don't know how to set the cropbox either.....

Is there a way to set it with Scribus or other application?

Best regards

P.S.: I know multivalent can add margins around, but those are white margins so would not help on the opposite situation.
