The link you give involves other programs besides Word. Two of these program links don't work ( CocoaBooklet and Booklightning)! Are you telling me that the Mac version of Word will not produce a booklet? Are you telling me that the only way is via a program that converts pdf into booklets?

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
yes, you use programs other then word for this.
Not sure why the links are not working for you but try these ones please

And yes, Word for mac is a data processing program, its not a book creation program Alan, which is why these programs have been created.
Let me know if you have any difficulties please

Thanks for your help. Take your fee! At least I will now be able to do the task and stop wasting time trying to do it directly from Word.
