How It Works

The original document should be in PDF format. If you have a document in a format other than PDF, you should first export it to a PDF.

Here is how BookletCreator works (this example shows you only 8 pages for the sake of simplicity, but your document may be of any size):

Let's say your document looks like this:

Original PDF pages

After processing your document with BookletCreator you will get something like this:

Booklet PDF pages

Print the document choosing “Print on both sides” in your printer preferences. If your printer can't print on both sides automatically, do it manually. Finally, stack the pages in the correct order, fold them in half, and staple them. This is how the booklet will look when completed:

BookletCreator for Mac Features

You can combine multiple PDF files into one booklet by adding two or more files to the list.

If your PDF is password-protected you should enter the password after opening the file.

You can specify the range of pages to print in "Select Pages" column. Separate numbers in a range by using a hyphen, and separate multiple pages or ranges by using commas. To print from a specific page to the end of the document, enter the page with a hyphen. For example, "11-" prints page 11 to the last page of the document.

You can specify the paper size. If "Auto paper size" is checked, the paper will be large enough to fit two pages of the original document.

If you set "Pages per booklet" to some value other than "All", the document will be split into multiple booklets, each having the chosen number of pages or less. This option is useful when you have a large document which is not convenient to fold. Set the appropriate option to put each booklet in a separate file.

You can add page numbers checking the appropriate option.

If the last page has to be printed on the back cover, check "Put the last page on the back cover".

Check "Flip backs upside down" if you have a duplex printer (the one that can automatically print on both sides of the paper).

You can automatically rotate landscape pages clockwise or counter-clockwise.

If your document is in right-to-left language (such as Arabic or Hebrew), set the appropriate option to have the pages placed from right to left.




BookletCreator for Windows Features

Choose "Pages:" option to specify the range of pages to print. Separate numbers in a range by using a hyphen, and separate multiple pages or ranges by using commas. To print from a specific page to the end of the document, enter the page with a hyphen. For example, "11-" prints page 11 to the last page of the document.

Check "Flip backs upside down" if you have a duplex printer (the one that can automatically print on both sides of the paper).

If you set "Pages per booklet" to some value other than "All", the document will be split into multiple booklets, each having the chosen number of pages or less. This option is useful when you have a large document which is not convenient to fold. If you want all the "booklets" to have the same number of pages, check the "Add blank pages to the last booklet" option.

You can also specify the PDF sheet size. If it is set to "Auto", the resultant sheet will be large enough to fit two pages of the original document.

If your document is in right-to-left language (such as Arabic or Hebrew), set the appropriate option to have the pages placed from right to left.
