I can’t make the fold go to 90 degrees, what’s wrong?

I can’t make the fold go to 90 degrees.

Sometimes both measurements are close to the top or the bottom or the page so you wont be able to get a full 90 degree fold. There’s a couple of ways to work around this. Some people cut the page near the spine to allow the fold to go to 90 degrees. This is fine for the odd page but if there are many pages together like this it can weaken the spine and not support the other pages evenly.

Another way is to fold as close to 90 degrees as you can then fold over and trim the overlapping corner off. It’s recommended to trim them off otherwise they can add a lot of extra bulk to the pattern and your folds wont sit nicely together.
