You can use Adobe Reader to create ps files and then convert the PS
files to pdf via the Ghostscript tool ps2pdf.
I take a different approach for making booklets of hymns. This is a
Linux script called thus:
where the input file is named foobook.ps.
Linux will substitute "foobook" for every occurrence of "$1".
psbook $1.ps $1b.ps
psnup -2 -ptabloid -Pletter $1b.ps $1p.ps
psselect -o $1p.ps $1o.ps
psselect -e -r $1p.ps $1e.ps
#echo 'switch paper'
#rm $1p.ps $1e.ps $1o.ps $1b.ps
The result will be two files named "foobooke.ps" and "foobooko.ps, set
up for running the paper twice through my Ricoh laser printer. For
another printer I might need to eliminate the "-r" parameter.
If you are sending the pages to someone else to print, why can't that
printer do the imposition as well? Just curious.
