    You won't do that using Fiery imposition, if I remember correctly.

    Cut and stack drills through the stack, not across the page. If you have, for example, a 4-up piece that's 100 pieces total, Fiery's cut and stack does what it's supposed to do: piece 1 is on the top left of sheet 1, piece 2 is on the top left of sheet 2, etc down to sheet 25. Then piece 26 is on the top right of sheet 1, piece 27 is on the top right of sheet 2, and on down the stack.

    You end up with a stack of 25 sheets; when it's cut, you have a stack of 1-25, then another stack of 26-50, a third stack of 51-75, and a fourth stack of 76-100. Put the stacks in proper order and there you have it, all arranged.

    You end up achieving the exact same results as what you want.

    But if you want it to print out exactly the way you describe, you'll need to simply make PDF out of your VI and then have a third party imposition tool do that. Maybe Quite Imposing can do it, I haven't looked. You could head to quite.com and ask in their support area.

    Fiery can do it and give you what you want, as long as you're not wedded to the ink being on the uncut sheets in a specific manner that Fiery doesn't support.

    Impose on Fiery and Choose "Duplo Long Edge Feed" would achieve the result.
