    Default image shift: how can I know in what direction the image will shift?

    Hi there,

    May be this is a daft question, but I can't get hold of the image-shift feature?
    I want my prints to register in duplex as correctly as possible.
    And with 200-300 gms that shouldn't be a problem. But when I want to use the image shift, it's allways trial and error, the images shift never the way I want/expect to.
    I assume it has something to do with the original print direction of those pdf's too.
    I allready tried printing all kinds of dummy-pdf's and impositions in several print directions, but that was so time consuming, I didn't get far.
    It's not a question of tray-alignement, I use that for a few very frequently used paperstocks.
    Can anyone here help me out?

    thanks in advance
    Joz

    In my experience, the image shift direction is always related to the orientation of your preview. What I do if I have to shift the image to align it correctly for duplex is "Print and Hold" the image so as to see the orientation of the image. Then, take the printed piece and see where you need to adjust. Orient your printed piece the same way it previews on screen and work your adjustments from that. You should be good to go!
