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.
