> Automatic Cover for Books

> and the paper thickness.

The name of this portion of the cover is "spine" in English.

> 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 
> one.


> 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:

I am sorry, I am not sure what to understand here!

Super job so far!

> Regards you all!
