Scribus - print to book form
« on: February 26, 2014, 08:29:16 am »
Hi,

The typical hardback book is a series of sections - stacked on top of each other.

Each section contains anywhere from 8,12,16,20 pages. Each section is similar to the "booklet" that MS word or Scribus can print.

The question: Does Scribus allow you to print a book as a series of sections(booklets)? If so how can I do this?

No, Scribus does not currently include impositioning support.

Have a look at the wiki for suggested solutions.

I've used Multivalent and Bookbinder (if you just want "booklets" Bookbinder is easier, but Multivalent can do more complex impositions).
