BookLightning for Mac1.7.4

27 November 2013

Create booklets at home.

What is BookLightning for Mac

With BookLightning, you can easily create booklets on your printer, just create a PDF document and drop it onto the BookLighting icon. Print the resulting booklet PDF, which BookLightning typically creates in less than a second, fold the pages and staple. Done.

All you need to do is set up your original document at exactly the size you want for the booklet, which will be 1/2 the size of the paper you are printing on as the pages get folded in half.

For the frequent booklet-maker, BookLightning even includes a convenient direct-print feature that lets you print booklets (via BookLightning) straight from the print panel of your application.

nifty! works as advertised, haven't had any problems with Panther and PDF Services. a suggestion, however: at present, "Print Book" is not as useful as it might be. this is because when BookLightning sends output to a printer and the output is larger than the printer's print area, BookLightning apparently tells the printer to crop the output. a more appropriate choice would be to tell the printer to scale the output; when i save BookLightning's output and print it manually, this works great.

Great program! Had a problem when using the PDF Services "Print Booklet" option -- it shifted the margins significantly (printing from Microsoft Word v.x to Epson Stylus 740). One feature request: for those of us intrested in hand-binding books, producing signatures of 16 pages (or some other multiple of four) to be sewn together would be a great help. BookLightning can do that now, but only if you tell your the application you're printing from to print pages 1-16, then go back and print pages 17-32, and so on. All in all a great program, and I'm glad I found it!

A great utility! As soon as I found it, I downloaded it. As soon as I downloaded it, I tried it. And, as soon as I tried it, I paid for a license. I've been looking for a replacement for ClickBook, which doesn't appear to be upgraded for Mac OS X. BookLightning meets all my needs for printing booklets.
