Page Layout Software

Page layout, also known as desktop publishing, is the part of graphic design that deals in the arrangement of visual elements on a page. It generally involves organizational principles of composition to achieve specific communication objectives. With print media, elements usually consist of type (text), images (pictures), and occasionally place-holder graphics for elements that are not printed with ink such as die/laser cutting, foil stamping or blind embossing. Commonly used programs include Adobe PageMaker and InDesign, Corel Ventura, QuarkXPress, Microsoft Publisher and Xara, along with more specialized programs such as TeX, LaTeX and LyX.

How to print a PDF Saddle Stitched booklet?

I am having trouble using Word to print a booklet, and used ILovePDF.com to convert a Word booklet to the attached PDF.


This booklet appear to be intact. But, I can not get the PDF to print, using Adobe Acrobat (PDF), on my Mac, using an HP MFP M127fw.

Here is the Print window...

Adobe Print (Mac)
I select to print from pages 1 to 1 and that bring out 2 pages.

IF they were on the same sheet, opposite sides, they wold be correct.

What can you suggest I do to make it stop so I can flip the page??

I also just discovered some juicy details that probably hold the answer.

Need this Word Booklet to print properly (Mac to HP Laser)

I have attached a booklet sample I created so I could find help to make it print like a booklet.

I use Word 16.27 (2019) ON A MAC

I feel like I am missing this "Multiple Pages"

Multiple Pages
I do not see that option aywhere.

Can you make this print like a booklet?

If you make a small change to do this, please send me back the working version and tell me what you changed.

Also, how do I make Word print the one side and request my confirmation that I flipped the pages over?

Need to host a booklet online

I seek a pre-built web program I can configure with images, text, etc. and host with little programming required.

I hope for animation, etc as the page turns...

WordPress plugin?

It would be great if that app also let me create a printable document which I could use the create real booklets. But, the canned app is more important that formatting the booklet for print.

5.5 X 8.5 dimensions.

small number of pages...perhaps 16 including back and front cover...

Anything exist for that?

Need a Word Template for a small booklet

I would like a template that will print a 5.5" X 8.5" booklet on roughly 4 or 5 full sized pages.

I can certainly format Word to print in the configuration I would like, but I need something bigger from a template.

I need customizable regions throughout the document which will contain 1 or more images and text.

The must be resizable since I have no idea how the content will flow, at this point. So, I need total flexibility, on the fly, to grow the section based on:

1) the amount of text
2) the minimum size an image can be printed.

So, I suppose, the big value add for this template is the resizability of a nice looking framed section. If, I needed to explicitly format it to print in booklet form, I can do that myself.

Suggestion on how to find that template?

When printing from Filemaker, there is a text field being used for notes but it keeps getting cut off after two pages. Is there a size limit on what can be printed out from one text field within Filemaker Pro?
What is printing "back to back".  Is that another word for using both sides of the paper?
I've never heard this term before.
I have a 20 page document which I would like to have printed on both sides.
Do I ask for "back to back"?
Is there a web site that describes this term? Gives examples?  I tried googling and couldn't find any.

My OS is win 10 Pro 64 bit and i have Office 365 the Business Essentials version.  Also I have access to Adobe Photoshop and also PaintNet.
I am trying to design a booklet of 13 pages of content and the front and back covers.  All will have texts on both sides of the page.  Eg the Front cover will have content in the inside of the page, and the same goes for the last cover page.  While the inner content will have content on both sides of the pages, and some of the pages will be laid out with Graphics.  
At the moment the design is as a pdf format, with the inner and inside of the cover page as one pdf file and the same goes for the last cover page.  And the inner pages are all in pdf format.
I am trying to have them in an Adobe Photoshop format, so that I can use different layers for the different headers and texts, and also the photographs that are to be inserted.  And once all this has been done than to bring them into a booklet software with all these pages ordered, and it can be set to print on my printer, or  even sent to a professional printer to print multiple copies.
Are there any softwares that are available, I am sure there must be tons of them, and also many ways of doing this, but as I have been out of touch for such a very long time, as the last I used was Adobe page Maker version 6.5 and I wonder if this is still around or not.  Thank u for your suggestions and advise. Regards.
How do I Autofill text boxes in macOS Pages 6.1.1 - for example, using more Lorem ipsum than current Pages 6 text box will contain (either more text or increase text size), how to have text fill (flow) to 1 or more text boxes below in current document. Text boxes may be on successive pages.
I have worked as a full-time translator since 2009 and am now contemplating to purchase a Mac and DTP software like Adobe InDesign, PhotoShop, Illustrator and Quark so I can widen my offering of services to include DTP as well. This is normally something the translation agencies handle themselves, but perhaps I could easier find direct customers by offering them DTP services.

As I translate in a language direction which is highly demanded, I receive more job offers than I can accept. How is the situation when it comes to DTP?

1. Can I do DTP for other languages (at least languages I am somewhat familiar with, like Chinese, Russian and French)?

2. Which areas could I quite easily get a good start in within sub-areas of DTP? For example, DTP that is related to translation would be one sub-area. What other sub-areas are there?

3. Which  industries require DTP from freelancers the most (more than the translation industry)?

4. How do I handle files if I work with DTP software on a Mac and my customers send me Windows DTP files?

5. How long would it take me to get started with DTP with no previous knowledge of it by just having the necessary hardware and software?

6. How good is the profit margin (how much competition is there)?

7. If I purchase the software and a Mac, can I, to start with at least, let someone else use this Mac with the installed DTP software and work remotely with DTP tasks? In other words, I give this other person full access to my Mac …
In inDesign by holding command and clicking I can select the element behind the other. In illustrator I have to lock the top item to select the one below. It works but is time consuming and can become confusing. Anyone know a short cut?

I have a document  in Word 2013 (a book) which I already paginated. The page numbers appear at the bottom left and bottom right  (alternate) of the pages. I now want to simplify this and place ALL page numbers at the bottom CENTRE.  Can I do this without having to remove all existing page numbers and start from Scratch?
My Windows 7 system and on this website there is missing content. The entire logout link is missing the top half.
This started a view days ago and still the same. On the main " My Verizon" screen the logout button is not partial. It's also located closer to the top of the page, so it is not the same logout button. It accomplishes the same but they are different locations on the two pages as far as I know.

I'd like to upload a video to youtube.  Google results state to click the "Upload" link... there isn't an upload link on my account.

In church directory with name, address, phones numbers, the information at the bottom of the page is often sent to the next page.  I have tried page breaks without success.  I read in this forum I need to tell WORD what to do.  I went to Home, Paragraph, and the paragraph format group.  I had read I needed to look for "keep with next."  Then I read about putting a symbol in...confusing for a copy and paste...can someone tell me in simple language what I need to do.  I will be happy to PM an attachment of the file.  Thank you.

I have an eight (8) page brochure which prints on two (2) physical pages.  I want to add 4 more pages (which will then be printing on three (3) physical pages).

The brochure is designed in landscape to be folded so I employed this pagination system.
8    1
2    7
6    3
4    5  <==Turnaround page

In adding more pages, the brochure should look life this...
12     1
2     11
10    3
4      9
8      5
6      7 <==Turnaround page

However, when I break the link between 4 and 5 wanting to link 5 to 6, etc., all my text on pages 6, 7 and 8 disappear.

How do I break page 4-5 link without losing all my text in the pages that follow page 5?  

P.S. I cannot attach a file since Publishers files are so large.  I can email it to you.

Hi I am trying to print a page and when I print it on IE it shows as taking 47 pages, and it is distorted where everything seems to be shifted to the left side and even when printing the 47 pages it only prints a small portion of the text due to the shift.

I tried it on firefox and it does the same distortion, except it only takes up 18 pages, But none of the 18 pages have the data that I need because it is cut out and the text seems to be shifted.

I tried it on chrome and in chrome there is no shifting, however it still takes up 30 pages. And even when taking up 30 pages it still looks nothing like the actual webpage does (it changes the formatting by shifting each row of data down to the next line rather then showing it vertically as the web page shows it).

I even tried highlighting the text and copping it and pasting it into Microsoft word and in word it still shifts the horizontal data downwards and it ends up being 52 pages long.

Is there any way (maybe with an add on or a program) to save a page just as it is laid out on the screen when viewing in the browser?

Also below is the link to the page I am trying to save / print out
