I've written a program to turn a PDF document into signatures. It splits the file into signature sized chunks, rearranges the pages and places them two to a page in a set of new PDFs. When you print out the new PDFs they are ready for folding and sewing.
I wrote it because I couldn't find anything like it on the web, just booklet producing programs. There was nothing that could handle a novel or textbook and I have been using my program to print out ebooks and formatted Gutenberg Project texts.
I can't believe that I am the only person in the world who wants a program like this, so I've posted it on my website.
The program is free and Open Source.
It is in Java, so should run on any Windows, Linux or Mac box that has Java running.
The current features tend heavily towards what I need and may not suit other people.
About 20% of the PDFs I put through it didn't work, for reasons unknown. But hey, something is better than nothing, right?
My purpose in posting here is to discover if I am indeed the only person in the world with a need for this, and if not, to get some feedback from other people who might find it useful. If there is a demand (read, at least one other person in the world who has a use for it) I am willing to expand and develop the program into a more general tool.
