Hi guys!

Althought EasyPose has a long way to go before it starts to be called 
professional (for real), I am putting some new features that might be 
usefull for someone, someday ^_^.

Here is some of 'em:

Automatic Cover for Books

Based on the paper width, some calculationsa are usefull to         
determinate the book cover. EasyPose will associate that data with files 
to the front and back cover, so the middle (I don't know the 
correspondent name in english for that part wich recieves clue for 
bindind ^_^) is automatically variant, depending on the number of pages 
and the paper thickness.

Variable data

Some features that could help are : Implement variable printing along 
the imposition. Things like page number could be inserted just like 
control elements at specific positions. A pdf file, with many pages, of 
a variant content, can be inserted and setted as "Variable Content", so 
,at each output, the next page is inserted in the place of the original 

Side Printing

Some pos-printing professionals said to me that this is to be a MustHave 
feature to EasyPose.
Some of this code is already implemented and is to be updated soon.
The user chooses an image to be printed at the side, top  or bottom of 
the book,  (it is more logic if we have more than 100 pages ^_^)

This screenshot is more self-explanatory:


The result is: hundreds of thin lines printed inside the trim area of 
each page,  correctly arranged so the chosen image is reproduced in the 
desired side of the book.
Here is the result of a imposed sideprinting image:


Regards you all!
