The LaTeX crop package

Version: 5.5 - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

The crop package provides a variety of corner crop marks to be used for camera alignment, trimming paper stacks, and visualizing physical page dimensions.

With the many available options, you can specify the type and location of crop marks, print page information outside the page area on every page, declare standard or custom paper dimensions, specify a printer driver, and change the orientation and location of the document on the printed page. Other options allow the rotation, mirroring, or inversion of the output. The package options also allow the printing of the document text and graphics separately if necessary, and provide for better collaboration with certain printer drivers.

The way the crop package handles color depends on the color package, which it loads automatically. The crop package also uses the geometry package. The crop package doesn't work with documents created with the Style Editor, which handles crop marks in a different way.

Use the Options and Packages command on the Typeset menu to add the package to your document and specify options.

For more information, see the package documentation in the TCITeX/doc/latex/contrib/crop directory.
