I need to make a booklet using A4 paper, folded along the vertical axis (see image). The folded booklet will thus be 105 × 297 mm. The final booklet will be either 3 or 4 sheets of paper (12 or 16 pages when folded).
Getting content lined up in two columns in e.g. Microsoft Word is easy enough, but printing a booklet brings with it the challenge of getting the page order right, in particular with the non-standard size.
I have previously used the Create Booklet menu item for OS X with great success, but it fails me when I throw a 105 × 297 mm document at it. Instead of portrait A4:s with my pages as two "columns", I get landscape A4:s with most of the content cut off.
In Word, I can even change my Page Setup into what I'm looking for, but the changes don't save. If I select
Book fold and swap the dimensions, I get a preview showing me the exact layout I want. Pressing
Portrait is disabled however, and when I press
OK it reverts into the normal two landscape pages on a portrait sheet.
I am looking for a way to generate the correct page layout and order. It may be that Word is not capable of producing the output I want, in which case I would consider solutions that use other software as acceptable answers as well. I have both Windows and OS X machines at my disposal.
