Turning a document into a book?

Asked by MetroGnome217 (311 points ) April 8th, 2010

I am writing a novel for a school project.
it is currently in a word doc, but i want to be able to print it out as if it were a book (landscape w/ page numbers, etc)
Does anyone know of any good webapps or free online programs that does this

Look around in Word a little. I know I saw a feature that puts page numbers in (but I can’t remember how to get to that menu), and I know you can print it sideways (landscape).

You can put document to landscape under the Page Layout tab, then Orientation. Page number is under the Insert tab.

Yes, and there are different options for how you set up the page numbering so you can have facing pages with the numbers on the outer side of the page.

If I am reading the question right, Word will do that for you.

Print a folded booklet
When you select Book fold for your page setup, Microsoft Word prints two pages on one side of the paper. When you fold the paper, it opens like a book. This option is intended for documents that have more than two pages.”

OpenOffice has a free, open source word processing program. It is almost exactly like Microsoft Word. Just as in Word, you can do the landscape layout and numbered pages.
