Re: [BKARTS] "in sheets"



Ehud and all, this may be the most basic of all possibilities for printing in
signatures.  I've used it for some informal family projects (printing is not
my specialty; conservation is), and it's sufficient if you want leaves that
can be sewn through the folds.

With Microsoft Works, go to Programs, then Brochures and choose the 2-panel
option.  Then copy your word processed text onto the brochure program.  After
you've numbered the pages, cut and paste where necessary to create the proper
format.

If you want to use commercial 8 1/2 x 11" paper so that the grain is parallel
to the spine when the sheet is folded into 5 1/2 x 8 1/2" gatherings (and
don't want to take time cutting down more expensive paper with your own equipment
or take the time to have someone else do it, buy 11 x 17" paper which is sold
long grain, and cut it once, as Betty suggested a week or two ago in response
to my question on that subject.  (Thanks again, Betty!)
