Unfortunately, some of the "More Like This" links are to older posts that may not work. However, since you are running Leopard (I would update to the latest version of 10.5.8, though), you can use CocoaBooklet.
When you download anything it should go in your designated downloads folder. In Snow Leopard I know there is a default "Downloads" folder in created in your user folder. I think Leopard defaulted to the Desktop, but don't quote me on it. CocoaBooklet is in a .dmg file that you have to double-click to open & mount. Then copy the CocoaBooklet.app to your applications folder. From there you can drag & drop PDFs on to it or double-click it to run it & drop the PDF on to its open window.
I'm not exactly sure what you have so I'm going to try again with pictures.
Go to this page & you will see this. Click Download Now. Do not go to the developer page - it hasn't been working for some time.
When the download is completed you will see a file that looks like this in your downloads location.
Double-click that file to mount the disk image & again double-click the mounted image that looks like this.
A window will open & you will see several things including the CocoaBooklet.app that looks like this.
Drag this icon to your Applications folder. You may then eject the mounted disk image. Now you have CocoaBooklet installed.
Perhaps you could post a picture of what you have. This new forum software makes posting pictures quite easy. Click the camera icon above the text box in a reply to get started.
thanks for all your help but it's still not working.
i clicked download now.
i got the .dmg image. double clicked and
i got the cocoabooklet on my desktop (just like the little picture above your name) i think it's the mounted disk image
clicked that icon and the red stapler icon appeared along with a couple other icons (donate.webloc, readme.html, and two others in a foreign language)
i dragged the red stapler to my application folder then i ejected the mounted disk image
in the application folder is the red stapler, which i clicked, the red stapler appears in the dock bouncing up and down---- a small window appears with a warning about opening this up because it was downloaded from the web--- asked if you want to continue---- i clicked yes
the red stapler appears in the dock for a second than disappears.
i have done this a few times with the same result.
any more options?
I was basing my suggestion of using CocoaBooklet on the specs listed in an earlier post of yours that you are using Leopard. If you are using Snow Leopard, CocoaBooklet will not work. Snow Leopard changed the "java bridge." You'd have to make some changes in the system folder for it to work.
I found a cool tool for creating booklets in Mac OS. You can print the booklet from any Print Dialog, like from Pages or Numbers, etc.
You can find it here:
There are two versions there one for Leopard, one for Snow Leopard.
It works for me! Good luck!
In my usually answer for creating booklets I do mention Create Booklet. It can work quite well but it doesn't work as well as CocoaBooklet for me. So I have applied the Java fix to get it to work in Snow Leopard.
I haven't tried that, Peggy. I don't feel technical enough! lol! I worry about security issues when installing "older" versions; and maybe that I'll mess it up.
I have not tried CocoaBooklet either, and it might even be better than Create Booklet. I don't print that many booklets for it to be an issue.
Thanks a lot for all your posts - I've follow lots of your suggestions!
