Icon BookLightning 1.7.4

BookLightning is a Mac OS X 10.3 native utility for imposing PDF files into booklets, either for further processing or to print directly on a duplex or non-duplex printer. Operation couldn't be simpler: just drop a PDF file on the BookLightning icon, and it will create a new PDF with the pages of the original file arranged on sheets that are twice the size, two up and arranged so that they will form a booklet of the original size when folded in the middle. BookLightning does its job very quickly, generating the new PDF file typically takes less than a second.
For non-duplex printers, BookLightning splits the front and back pages, allowing two-sided booklets to be printed in two passes.
To create a booklet that will be created by printing on and folding letter size paper ( 8.5 x 11 ), set up your original document's page size to half that size: 5.5 x 8.5. This is exactly the size that the individual pages will appear at in the final booklet, because two of them have to fit on each side of the letter size sheets. For users with ISO "A"-style paper sizes, just drop down one size from the size of the paper you will be printing on.

LyX is a document processor that encourages an approach to writing based on the structure of your documents (WYSIWYM) and not simply their appearance (WYSIWYG).
LyX combines the power and flexibility of TeX/LaTeX with the ease of use of a graphical interface. This results in world-class support for creation of mathematical content (via a fully integrated equation editor) and structured documents like academic articles, theses, and books. In addition, staples of scientific authoring such as reference list and index creation come standard. But you can also use LyX to create a letter or a novel or a theatre play or film script. A broad array of ready, well-designed document layouts are built in.
LyX is for people who want their writing to look great, right out of the box. No more endless tinkering with formatting details, “finger painting” font attributes or futzing around with page boundaries. You just write. On screen, LyX looks like any word processor; its printed output — or richly cross-referenced PDF, just as readily produced — looks like nothing else.
