Printing booklets with a book fold

Post by ste46co » Mon Mar 14, 2011 5:41 am

Although TextMaker can indeed print booklets, unless I'm missing something it appears you have to work out the page printing order for yourself. For example, suppose you want to print an 8-page booklet on 2 sheets of paper with back-to back-printing to create a book fold. Assuming you have a duplex printer, in the Print menu you would select 2 pages per sheet, and enter the page print order as 8,1,2,7,6,3,4,5 so that the pages comes out in the right order in the folded booklet. It would be more convenient If TextMaker had the same feature as Microsoft Word, which allows you to select 'book fold' in the Page Setup, after which you can forget about page print ordering.
