Some test text!

ImpositionTest - Ruby

The sample illustrates how multiple pages can be combined/imposed using PDFNet. Page imposition can be used to arrange/order pages prior to printing or to assemble a 'master' page from several 'source' pages. Using PDFNet API it is possible to write applications that can re-order the pages such that they will display in the correct order when the hard copy pages are compiled and folded correctly.
