Re[2]: Fwd: Re: [APH] making signatures



     I do quite a few booklets in MS Word, using the column features--quite
     handy for 5 1/4 x 8 1/2 booklets, even compared to Publisher.  You
     have to do the signatures by sheer (shear?) brainpower though.

     I'm going to go searching for a Word Macro that does signature setups,
     it seems to me I've heard of one somewhere before.  I'll post my
     results.

Anyone out there with experience on how to do this using MS Word (windows 95
version)?

Thanks.

Actually, most good word processors will do this, though they may not be
set up to do it in nice, obvious ways.  It took me a little while to
figure out, but I formatted a book(let) into sigs in WordPerfect, which
remains the least typesetting/bookform-oriented of the major word
processors out there.  I've been told MS Word will do it too, though
these two are nowhere near as convenient as Pagemaker, let alone the real
typesetting programs.
