In Word 2010 (and also other versions), one can make a booklet easily by selecting Book fold in Page Setup. Click for a screenshot if you have no idea what I am talking about.

Here's the editing in Word:

A screenshot of Word

So on the second page there is a text box which I want it to span across two pages. It seems fine if I have ≦4 pages.

4-page booklet

But it doesn't work with more pages.

8-page booklet

As shown in the screenshot, the extended part is printed on the 7th page, which is obviously not what I want.

Also, the "effect" cannot be seen in Word itself (you can't see the other half of the object on page 3), but it is included in printing. I wonder if this is a bug. (In this case I am using PDFCreator to prevent wasting paper.)

How can I do that easily and correctly?
