Hi William,

No, not good.
1. Open SLA document
2. File/Print
3. Select "Print to file" where you select your printer you get a postscript file.
You can check your postscript file under windows with gsview
See http://pages.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/gsview/

if you see4 pages there, use the psbook .... etc - it should work.

Have made some progress but still getting some probs.

I created a5 doc with 4 pages. Put a text box in each page and some text.
Exported to pdf format. Opened pdf file in gnome and printed to file as a PS

Used this PS file and Victor's psbook command. Reported that it wrote 4

However, when I used ps2pdf command, it generated  2 pages as expected but
placed text only on right-hand side of page 1 and there was no text on the
left of page 1 or on the second page.

Any ideas, please?
