This is by far the best imposition tool for simple booklets / saddle-stitched brochures I know, and at a very affordable price. Very customizable, you can even combine several PDF sources. Various color/crop mark settings. You can save the settings for each document to a file. Includes also the possibility to set the needed creep in function of customizable paper weight (which works a lot better than the InDesign creep solution for example). Years ago I used the (expensive) Quite Imposing Acrobat plug-in; for regular saddle-stitch, BookMaker is superior. (They offer also a full-blown version that seems to cover all imaginable imposition setups.)
