Thanks for the info, I've already fixed the issue. Since our main office is already closed due to the time zone, I guess an update will be available at Monday.
Thanks again and have a nice weekend.

Well, you can add an "idea" to the app's suggestion list, we'll discuss the feature and add it should the decision be positive.
In your imposition the app doesn't add anything, there are simply some "cells" empty since there's not enough source pages.
Now about the imposition itself: booklets can be folded in different ways. More pages (and folds) you have - more ways to fold it. Now I haven't checked your "expected" file, but one generated by "Imposition Wizard" is fine, it makes a booklet with 3 folds.
Imagine (or print or draw) those sheets from imposed.pdf, put them one on another in the order they're in the document, so the page with number "1" is on your right-bottom corner, "3" below it on the next sheet and "5" after that on the third sheet.
Now fold all the sheets around the vertical center axis, pushing left half to the back. So your "front" page after the folding is:
25* 24* <- those flipped vertically
Now fold the upper half back, your front page is now
Finally, fold left half back.
You'll get a yet non-cut booklet with pages starting from 1 on your front page and running through 44 and further (+4 empty).
When it comes to folding order, i.e. "which half goes where" - IW doesn't provide a choice, it's always left-top-repeat. As for the stitching options (how many sheet per stitch you need) or folding amount (how many source sheets are you going to fold at a time) - those are adjustable, check "Booklet" generator options.
Hope this helps, feel free to ask further questions.
There is no way to change the font in current version, but I've added a TODO and we'll add the feature into the upcoming release. Although, we'll probably have to stick to those fonts that are standard for PDF, known as "standard 14": Helvetica, Courier, Times and few others.

OK, thanks for the file. We've tried to reproduce the issue on Windows 10, macOS 10.12 and macOS 10.14 with different app versions with no luck.
So my best guess for the moment is that something's wrong with the font itself, either on macOS 10.13 (which I don't have at the moment) or on your specific installation. Do you have another Mac to test the issue on? To confirm the issue to be relative to the environment, not to the IW or Acrobat themselves?
P.S. The file you've send does have an issue with "Helvetica", although I haven't found what exactly is wrong yet, will dig deeper.
You have quite fresh version. OK, I will check it on exactly the same build and on macOS.
I would also appreciate should you be able to drop me an imposed file, i.e. an output PDF that has that problem with font.
Thanks a lot. Could you please also specify exact version of the "Imposition Wizard" you're using? OS, IW version, IW type (Standalone or Acrobat plug-in) etc.
The thing is with our current working build everything seems to be OK, I've imposed the file with both Acrobat and Standalone versions, got no error messages in the output.
So, the issue must be relative to a specific version of the app.
Do you use Unicode characters in the "Text" block? That's the only reason I can imagine to lead to the problem. Should it be something regular - please, drop us the preset that leads to the issue, I'd appreciate the chance to investigate further.
It the main menu choose Settings and right on the top there's selector for the measurement units, switch to mm or cm whichever suites you best.
