    Book Fold help c# app (2002)

    I have a client that would like us to dynamically generate a word document. They want this 20 page or more document to be arranged so that it will print out in a book format.

    I don't see anywhere in Word where I can rearrange the pages into "printers pairs". The Book Fold feature gets me closer to my goal but somehow I have to rearrange the pages so they are paired p like 10,11 : 9,12 : 8,13 : 7,14 ... so when the document is printed the client will be able to fold it and have it layed out like a book.

    I'm willing to write a custom application that will do this but ultimately I only have access to the same objects in code that I have access to in the Word UI.

    Anyone have any suggestions as to how I can accomplish my task?

    I haven't played with this feature in Word very much, but Word appears to handle this automatically. I downloaded a normal document, changed it to Book Fold, All pages, shrank the margins a bit, removed the big graphics, and printed to PDF. The result was the attached. Can you test and see if you get similar results?

    The only subtlety that may confound things here is that you have to print double-sided for it to make sense, but otherwise this seems to work on my setup. Just out of curiosity, wouldn't this be more appropriate to the Word forum?

    I think it might have been double posted here and in Word, and I responded here before I realized that, but it was a little while ago so I can't be certain... should I move it now? I figured it would just fade away. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
