Setting up unconventional publication in Pagemaker 4.0 HELP
Subject:Setting up unconventional publication in Pagemaker 4.0 HELP From:Raymond Chenier <rchenier -at- WRITER -dot- SYNAPSE -dot- NET> Date:Thu, 27 Jul 1995 23:42:07 GMT
Hi: I'm not sure if what I want to do can even be done in pagemaker 4.0 but here
I want to set up a publication (small booklet) using 8.5 x 11 landscape folded
half. I can't find instructions in my manual pertaining to what I need. I would
like to take advantage of auto page numbering and text flow, TOC and index
generation but as you can understand, if I do it unconventionally (like 1 page
a time) it will be a nightmare with the loss of all features.
I have been asked to do it in this format: the sheets are folded in half and the
halves have two columns. The folded sheets would then fit into each other and be
stapled in the crease. I am looking at having chapters, a TOC, an index,
etc... I hope this can be less painful than I am starting to anticipate. I
afford big, new software packages. (Hence the title: student)
Any ideas greatly appreciated, thanks...
