Abstract:
Systems and methods for providing resized layouts accommodating a plurality of documents sizes for variable data printing are disclosed. A computerized system is used to lay out a template for a given document having a first page size and including variable elements based on user input. The user can define the frame of each element according to one or more parameters including a scaling ratio, an X and Y alignment, and a must fit portion of the frame. The user provides a second page size which includes at least one dimension different than the first page size. A new document is automatically prepared that includes the content of the original document that is resized according to the one or more parameters.
