More seriously, I wonder why you ask a question and give the answer at the
same time? I wonder about the tone of your question (seems more like an
affirmation than a question). Provided your knowledge of printing and the
explanations you gave earlier in this thread, I am afraid this last comment
(question?) of yours is not really constructive. You are completely wrong
trying to distort what I say and come up with a conclusion you know is
wrong. By doing so, not only do you introduce noise on this list, but you're
mixing things up. Again, nothing constructive here, imsho.

Organising the 6 panels (3 for each page) of a pamphlet is lay-out, not

We're trying to help people deal with a feature that is at least
questionnable. We're talking ? and you know that perfectly ? about panels of
a pamphlet, which are no different than columns of a page (magazine,
newspaper, etc.). It is a mistake to associate those panels to pages of a
book. It is simply not the case. Quite different, in fact. A letter-size
pamphlet is a 2-page document. No matter if you fold it in Z-shape or
U-shape. The 6 panels are not six pages ? at least from the printing point
of view. Don't mix things up. Don't let people think it could be otherwise
with such misleading affirmation (sorry, question).
