We print pre-press proofs almost exclusively from Quark. For instance a book cover proof (8.5"x11" trim size) has to be printed front & back cover with crops&bleeds (and spine if any) = 11"x 17" image (if no spine) PLUS the bleeds&crops. If you know how to print that (on 13" x 19" paper) without the 90 degrees ratation, please let me know. I am fully aware that the RIP has to do all the calculations related to the rotations.... > > Otherwise, I haven't printed a rotated anything with v. 4.

Now talkin about neck-breaker... ;-) This is not practical for us, we sometimes print hundreds of pages a month... regards brian - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
