  1. Gentlemen, this is a doddle in Designer. I produce such things all the time; set the job up as an A4 landscape, set up a guide at 148.5 cm, set up the borders and bleeds you need on each side, save it as 'Template' , open 'Template' and use 'Save as' to call it whatever you want.  When you've finished each spread, save it, then Select All, then delete it; then 'Save As' and carry on with the next spread.  I've attached a 4 page A5 brochure layout; for an 8 page you would have pages 8 and 1 for the outer, and pages 2 and 7 backing it up, then 6 and 3, then 4 and 5.

  2. I once produced a book using PageMaker, which had a very useful command; Build booklet.  One click and it imposed all the pages correctly.  Another useful command was: Save for service provider, which assembled all that was needed into one file, to hand on a floppy disc to the bloke who produced the negatives from which the plates were produced.

  3. I've just made my first project in Publisher, a four page brochure A4 folded to A5.  Much to my surprise it did not show me the spreads I expected to see; e.g. I expected to be looking at pages 4 & 1, 2 & 3.  Instead I got page 1 A5, pages 2 & 3 on A4 landscape, and page 4 A5.  They can't be printed out like that as only the centre pages will be correct.   I could work around it but surely if the program is to used by printers it should show us what we are used to looking at?

    By the way, Herojas 93 seems to have his imposition wrong, with all the even pages on the right instead of the left.
