    11x17 Bifold Catalog - PageMaker 7.0


      What is the best method to create a 11x17 bifold catalog?


      When printing, the first sheet shows the last page on the left and the first page on the right.  When you turn the sheet over, page 2 is on the left and the second to last page is on the right.  Each sheet continues this pattern.  This means there must always be a number of pages divisible by 4.


      In PageMaker 7.0 I have only been able to get the pages to link 1, 2-3, 4-5, etc.  When printed, this would be completely out of order for what I need.  How do I solve this problem and get my sheets to order correctly?


      If this is not possible in PageMaker, is there another program that I could use to make this work?

          Create single pages (8.5 inches × 11 inches) as you would wish to read the final product, yes in multiples of 4.


          Then run PM's "Build Booklet" under Utilities -> Plugins, two up saddle stitch.


          BB'S output will be printer friendly, with pages 1 & 4 and 2 & 3 on 11 inches × 17 inches paper.
