I am being constantly frustrated in my attempts to get a booklet printed with the pages in the right order and in the right orientation.  I have a Photos mart c309g which does double sided printing bought specially for this and I still cannot get my mac to relate to it properly.  There is a booklet template in pages which I use but they are not speaking to each other properly, can anyone help?

    You search for the keyword booklet in existing tyhreads.

     

    The dumb machine was able to do that and give you some of these threads in the More Like This box.

    Yes I am aware of the way the more like this box works, unfortunately all of the threads are out of date and while I followed the directions there was no option for creating a booklet when I asked the document to be printed and then selected the PDF box, there used to be but it has now disappeared mysteriously, hence my question.

    It's good idea to read carefully.

     

    The linked threads are pointing to third party tools designed to achieve what Pages can't do by itself.

     

    I'm unable to guess which is the template which you use;

     

    Is it something that you may tell us ?

    I am using pages and have started with an a5 blank sheet which I tried to convert to booklet which was what the advice suggested.  Is there a template which would work better for this?

    You wrote :

     

    There is a booklet template in pages

     

    so I wanted to know which it was because, as far as I know, there is no booklet template in Pages.

     

    To rule the imposition, you must use a dedicated tool.

    It's what is explained in the threads pointed by the More Like This box.

     

    An alternate scheme is to study carefully the way pages are organized in a booklet and create the linked text boxes achieving this structure.

     

    Here is a quick and dirty example which I built in a hurry.

    Nothing complicated in such a design.

     

    If I remember well, Peggy already posted some (cleaner) templates of this kind.
