provides different forms of cropmarks for
trimming paper stacks, for camera alignment and
for visualizing the page dimensions.
There are options for centering the page with
respect to some physical paper size, for marking
the vertical and horizontal middle axis, for
mounting pages on a physical sheet, for
reflecting and inverting the whole document or
printing it upside-down, and for suppressing
either text or graphics output.

crop – Sup­port for crop­marks

A pack­age pro­vid­ing cor­ner marks for cam­era align­ment as well as for trim­ming pa­per stacks, and ad­di­tional page in­for­ma­tion on ev­ery page if re­quired. Most macros are eas­ily adapt­able to per­sonal pref­er­ences. An op­tion is pro­vided for se­lec­tively sup­press­ing graph­ics or text, which may be use­ful for print­ing just colour graph­ics on a colour laser printer and the rest on a cheap mono laser printer. A page info line con­tains the time and a new crop­marks in­dex and is printed at the top of the page. A con­fig­u­ra­tion com­mand is pro­vided for the info line font. Op­tions for bet­ter col­lab­o­ra­tion with dvips, pdf and vtex are pro­vided.
