"Magazine/Magazine double" is an imposition style in which the printed sheets are stacked, folded along the center line, and then bound along the center line.
When you are printing many pages or using thick paper, you can adjust the output to avoid page misalignment (Creep) that can occur when folding pages.
Specify this setting on the [Imposition/Paper Type Settings] screen.
Note that this explanation outlines the imposition and finishing settings. For details about a specific setting, see the on-screen balloon help that appears when you click the button.

"Magazine double" is an imposition style in which two copies of the same booklet are produced at once. The printed sheets are first stacked, folded along the center line, then cut, and then bound along the center line.
When documents are bound in a magazine style, the center of a page (the bound area) can become difficult to see, and the inner pages will protrude out farther than the outer pages. This protrusion is called “creep”.
To prevent the outside pages becoming difficult to see, you can add a binding margin that is the width of the creep to the outer-most page.
Finishing settings for magazine binding (inner binding)
When binding a document using the magazine style (inner binding), configure the following finishing settings as necessary:
Staple: 2 at center
Trim: Fore edge
When binding, use the [Magazine] style instead of the [Magazine double] style.
