Thank you for explaining how to make booklets in PageMaker for the Mac,
Charles. I have not done it for awhile and am not at home on my Mac to look
it up. But I have done it in the past and it is a terrific time saver, but
make sure if you are doing it for the first time you practice on a copy of
your file, not the original. I remember really messing things up and
wishing I had a backup to start over. And I know PM4.2 has it, because that
is the version I first used to make the booklets.

By all means leave the road when you wish. That is precisely the use
of a road: to reach individually chosen points of departure. By all
means break the rules, and break them beautifully, deliberately and
well. That is one of the ends for which they exist.
