I need to create a saddle stitched booklet that will have 2 covers. It is for a training that is split in to two sections and we want to have the first session be pages 1-40 and then for the second session we would like participants to flip the book over to the other cover and proceed through pages 41-80 to the center on the booklet. I can do this by rotating the copy on the second half of the document and placing it in reverse order. The prolem is the page numbering. Is there a way to do it automatically. Could the files be set up in two separate files as normal files and then combined whey I output the booklet file? Any ideas.
This comes up from time to time. I would make two documents. If it's going to be commercially offset printed, I'd also let prepress impose them together, then it's their headache, but in any case, if you need to construct a single file for output, place the pages from one doc two into new pages added to doc one, starting from the back. If you use Scott Zanelli's Multi-page Importer Script, you can start at the first blank page and the script will import in reverse order and rotate 180 for you automatically if you say please.
