Shareware distribution gives users a chance to try software
before buying it. If you try a Shareware program and continue
using it, you are expected to register. Individual programs
differ on details--some request registration while others require
it; some specify a maximum trial period. With registration, you
get anything from the simple right to continue using the software
to an updated program with printed manual.

Copyright laws apply to both Shareware and commercial software,
and the copyright holder retains all rights, with a few specific
exceptions as stated below. Shareware authors are accomplished
programmers, just like commercial authors, and the programs are
of comparable quality. (In both cases, there are good programs
and bad ones!) The main difference is in the method of
distribution. The author specifically grants the right to copy
and distribute the software, either to all and sundry or to a
specific group. For example, some authors require written
permission before a commercial disk vendor may copy their

Shareware is a distribution method, not a type of software. You
should find software that suits your needs and pocketbook,
whether it's commercial or Shareware. The Shareware system makes
fitting your needs easier, because you can try before you buy.
And because the overhead is low, prices are low also. Shareware
has the ultimate money-back guarantee--if you don't use the
product, you don't pay for it.


Users of Bookbild must accept this disclaimer of warranty:

Bookbild is a "shareware program" and is provided at no charge to
the user for evaluation. Feel free to share it with your friends,
but please do not give it away altered or as part of another
system. The essence of "user-supported" software is to provide
personal computer users with quality software without high
prices, and yet to provide incentive for programmers to continue
to develop new products. If you find this program useful and find
that you are using Bookbild after a trial period of 45 days, you
must make a registration payment of $10. to Science Translations.

All Rights Reserved (C) Copyright 1993 Jerry Stern

B O O K B I L D ( Windows ) V. 1.0 4

The $10. registration fee will license one copy for use on any
one computer at any one time. You must treat this software just
like a book. An example is that this software may be used by any
number of people and may be freely moved from one computer
location to another, so long as there is no possibility of it
being used at one location while it's being used at another, just
as a book cannot be read by two different persons at the same

Commercial users of Bookbild must register and pay for their
copies of Bookbild within 30 days of first use or their license
is withdrawn. Site-License arrangements may be made by contacting
Science Translations.

Anyone distributing Bookbild for any kind of remuneration must
first contact Science Translations at the address below for
authorization. This authorization will be automatically granted
to distributors recognized by the ASP as adhering to its
guidelines for shareware distributors, and such distributors may
begin offering Bookbild immediately. (However, Science
Translations must still be advised so that the distributor can be
kept up-to-date with the latest version of Bookbild.)

You are encouraged to pass a copy of Bookbild along to your
friends for evaluation. Please encourage them to register their
copy if they find that they can use it. All registered users will
receive a copy of the latest version of the Bookbild system,
including the current version on disk, and a bonus disk of
additional Book Bats Clip Art.

Registrations, Site Licenses, and Permission to distribute are

The files listed below should be included in your copy of
Bookbild 1.0 for Windows. If any are missing, the package is
incomplete. Any additional files are not part of Bookbild, and
are not authorized by Science Translations. Users will receive a
current and complete copy when they register.

REGISTER.DOC Order form for registering Bookbild for Windows
and other products.

All the files below should share the file date 03-15-93, and the
time 1:00 AM. If any other time or date appears, they have been
tampered with since leaving Science Translations. In addition to
the two files above, there should be exactly 14 files, and the
sizes MUST match the sizes shown below.

If you are reading these files on screen, you may print them with
the PRINTMAN.BAT batch file. (Don't print them from WordPerfect--
they are formatted with page breaks for printing from DOS.) You
do not need to exit Windows--from the Windows Program Manager,
choose File, and then Run. Type each command as it appears below,
and press (Enter). An easier way to run the PRINTMAN and SETUP
batch files is to go to DOS by double-clicking on the MS-DOS
prompt icon, usually installed in the Accessories group. (Type
EXIT when ready to return to Windows.)

From the DOS prompt, log to the directory holding the Bookbild
distribution files. Start the PRINTMAN file by typing it like
printman lpt1
(where lpt1 is the name of your printer--change it as needed for
your system.)


Before installing the Bookbild files, make a backup copy of the
distribution disk, and store the original disk in a safe place,
preferably in a different location than the backup copy of the
disk. Install the files from the backup disk, not the original.

There is only one file in Bookbild that must be installed on your
hard drive to be used. This file is BOOKBILD.WCM, which must be
copied to your macro directory. The SETUP batch file will copy
this file for you, and will also create a directory for the
optional clip art samples and instruction files. The SETUP batch
file will copy the samples and DOC files to any location you
wish. Advanced users may choose to copy this one file manually;
no technical support will be provided for this procedure.

You must tell the SETUP batch file what directory is being used
to hold your WordPerfect for Windows macros. If you don't know
where WP/Win keeps your macros, look in the File menu, choose
Preferences, choose Location of Files, write down the entry under
Macros/Keyboards/Button Bars, and click on Cancel to exit the
Preferences box.

To install the Bookbild macro, run the batch file SETUP.BAT from
the DOS prompt while logged to the Bookbild distribution disk or
directory. Type:
setup (A screen of information will appear.)

All Rights Reserved (C) Copyright 1993 Jerry Stern

B O O K B I L D ( Windows ) V. 1.0 9

The setup batch file does two things: 1) It will create a
directory for your sample clip art and DOC files. 2) It will copy
the macro file to the directory you identify as the WP/WIN macro
directory. Once SETUP finishes copying files, you are ready to
start using Bookbild.


The clip art images and DOC files need not remain on your hard
disk once you have become comfortable with running the software.
The macro must remain in the WP/Win macro directory.


Bookbild is capable of dealing with BOTH U.S. and A-series
paper sizes. The only difference will be in what numbers you
choose when defining your paper size. In the instructions
below, simply choose paper sizes as you would normally.


Bookbild can handle nearly all layouts and formats that can be
created in WordPerfect. There are some exceptions: Any feature
that automatically updates numbers (without using the Generate
feature) causes a problem. In other words, you may attach a
cross-reference to a page number, but not to a box number. The
box number will change when Bookbild reformats your document. You
can fix this by converting box number references to text before
running Bookbild.

Similarly, the numbers attached to footnotes and endnotes, and
the position of endnotes in the document, will shift as Bookbild
rearranges the document. Using the characters option for
footnotes will work properly, but numbered footnotes will be
misnumbered in the folded booklet. Endnotes should be converted
to text and located manually in the correct position before
running Bookbild. Otherwise, they will end up on the right hand
centerfold page instead of the back cover.

the page numbers would disrupt the page copying procedure, so
Bookbild automatically removes all new page number codes before
converting the booklet. If you must reset page numbers, do it
manually after conversion, or substitute a cross-reference inside
a user box.

BOOKBILD requires WordPerfect 5.2, Windows version. It is a
shareware package featuring a WordPerfect macro that will convert
a formatted file into a two-across pamphlet in either landscape
or portrait orientation, with either a vertical fold (the usual)
or a horizontal fold (a brochure that opens up rather than
across). Any booklet length is possible. Using the True Type
fonts built into Windows 3.1, or the Adobe Type Manager fonts
provided with WP/Win 5.2, landscape booklets are possible on all
laser, dot matrix, and inkjet printers.

Caution: this is not an introductory-level exercise, even with
BOOKBILD to help. Although the actions of the macro are
straightforward, when you rearrange all the pages of a formatted
document, especially one containing font changes, strange things
of steps to follow while preparing to run BOOKBILD, and using the
list as a checklist will save you time and aggravation. Once you
have done a few brochures with BOOKBILD, you'll only need a
memory jog, and BOOKBILD has that function built into its opening

Here are the basic steps:

1) Copy the macro to the WP/Win macro directory. (See the
installation instructions on page 8.)

2) Define a two-page layout as a pair of labels. (See page 11 for
help in choosing the shape and orientation of the booklet, and
page 13 for help defining a label size/type.)

3) Format the text, graphics, and so forth as you wish. Move
every possible code to Document Initial Codes. Balance all the
open codes, so that all margin changes, line spacing codes, tab
sets, and font changes are restored to their standard value for
the document at the bottom of every page. Convert any box
captions containing box numbers to text. (See page 15 for the
details of preparation.)

4) Generate any cross-references, lists, and tables of contents,
if necessary, and save the file.

5) Run the BOOKBILD macro. When it finishes running, your
original document will have been replaced by the reordered
document. If you save the file at this point, change its name so
that you do not overwrite the original file.

All Rights Reserved (C) Copyright 1993 Jerry Stern

B O O K B I L D ( Windows ) V. 1.0 11

6) After the conversion, you will still need to move headers and
footers, and add Suppress codes to keep those codes from printing
on pages where they don't belong. These remaining steps cannot be
done by the macro, because only you, as the designer of your own
document, can understand what you really want the finished
product to look like. Starting with the file as created by
BOOKBILD, move any header and footer codes to the new beginning
page of the booklet, e.g. page 4 on a one-sheet booklet, and add
Suppress codes as needed. Preview and print as you like, but if
you must make editing changes that affect page breaks, make the
editing changes in the original file (not the result file), and
then save and run BOOKBILD again.


WordPerfect Corporation's current method of making
WP/WIN macros compatible across language editions and
modules is to provide the file WP{WP}US.WCD with every
language version of WordPerfect for Windows. You will
also have a second version of the WCD file, such as
WP{WP}UK.WCD. Because the Bookbild macro is shipped
pre-compiled, neither file should be necessary.
However, if you retrieve the macro as a document, DO
NOT RESAVE IT! Resaving a compiled macro erases the
compiled code, and WP/WIN will try to recompile at the
next program run, and then will require the US version
of the WCD file.

BOOKBILD should work properly with ANY WP 5.2 language
module. However, I have not been able to test every
possible international combination of software, interim
release, and hardware. Please write if you find that
BOOKBILD fails in any way on your system.


Don't attempt to edit these macros; many of the functions
performed by the macros are neither obvious or documented, and
changes will generally lead to system lockups. If you would like
a custom modification of Bookbild, contact the author for a price


Just as not every project has the same needs, not every booklet
will be printed in landscape mode. The simplest brochure is just

All Rights Reserved (C) Copyright 1993 Jerry Stern

B O O K B I L D ( Windows ) V. 1.0 12

a normal page, printed in two columns, and folded between the
columns. There are four basic formats. Each booklet will be
printed in portrait mode (across the short measurement of the
paper), or in landscape mode (across the long way). Each booklet
will be folded either vertically or horizontally. U.S. legal
paper is only practical for two of these formats, the vertically-
folded landscape, and the horizontally-folded portrait styles.

The two horizontally-folded formats require upside-down printing,
but in this case that is very simple. After reordering the pages
with BOOKBILD, print only the first side of each page. Then turn
the stack around end-for-end as well as turning the other face
up, and print the second set of sides. Each page will hold two
booklet pages in the same orientation on one side, and two
booklet pages upside down on the other. Users of duplex printers:
this is NOT standard duplex, or double-sided, printing, so use
the printer to print only one side of each page at a time.


This is the most common booklet format, good for instruction
manuals and event programs. Use Landscape fonts, and fold
vertically, so that the folded booklet has the bound or stapled
edge on the left.

Paper Size Folded Form
U.S. Letter 8 1/2" x 11" 5 1/2" wide x 8 1/2" tall
U.S. Legal 8 1/2" x 14" 7" wide by 8 1/2" tall
A4 210mm x 297mm A5 or 148mm wide by 210mm high


This format is tall and narrow, and suitable for short brochures.
Use portrait fonts, and fold vertically, for a left-hand bound

U.S. Letter 8 1/2" x 11" 4 1/4" wide x 11" tall

A wide and short format, good for short brochures. Use landscape
fonts, and fold so that the bound edge is at the top. When

printing, the paper must be turned around end for end before
printing the second side.

U.S. Letter 8 1/2" x 11" 11" wide x 4 1/4" tall
A4 210mm x 297mm 297mm wide by 105mm high


This style shares the same sizes with the vertically-folded
landscape, but the print travels across the wide direction of the
page. Use portrait fonts, and position the folded edge at the

This format works well for printed inserts to be included with
videotapes--use letter or A4 paper, allow margins in the label
definition, and trim them off before folding. When printing, the
paper must be turned around end for end before printing the
second side.

Paper Size Folded Form
U.S. Letter 8 1/2" x 11" 8 1/2" wide x 5 1/2" tall

Before you can create a booklet, you must describe to WordPerfect
what size of paper you will print it on. A paper definition
contains not just the measurements of the page, but also the
margins, whether the page is to be printed across the short side
(portrait) or lengthwise (landscape).

All paper definitions are stored by WordPerfect with the printer
information. If you use more than one printer, or more than one
printer resource file, you must create a booklet paper definition
in every PRS or WRS file that you will use to format and print
booklets. For example, if you are using a HP LaserJet II and
LaserTools' Fonts-on-the-Fly program for scalable fonts, than you
can print with either the HP driver, or the FFWP-LaserJet driver.
Create the booklet definition with both by choosing File, Select
Printer, and choosing the first printer file, clicking Select,
and entering the steps below. Then select the next file, and
enter the same steps again.

All Rights Reserved (C) Copyright 1993 Jerry Stern

B O O K B I L D ( Windows ) V. 1.0 14

Labels are also defined as paper types, and our booklets are
built as sheets of labels, each with two half-page labels on
them. The steps below will show you how to create a label
definition for a vertically-folded landscape booklet--the most
common type. For other types, just substitute the choices shown
in the "Choosing a Booklet Format" section, starting on page 11.

From the document screen, select Layout, Page, Paper Size, Add.
The "Edit Paper Definition" screen should appear.

Paper Type: Choose Other, and type in the name, "Booklet." If you
will create more than one booklet format, enter a more specific
name, such as "Tall Booklet." WordPerfect will add "-Wide" to all
landscape paper types automatically.

Paper Size: Choose either "Stand Land" or "A4 Land."

Paper Orientation: Click on the bottom left icon--the box marked
"Rotated Font" should be checked for the standard booklet.

Prompt to Load Paper: The default choice here is "No." If you
change it to "Yes," WordPerfect will remind you to feed paper for
every sheet you print. Whenever possible, leave this setting at

Paper Location: The default choice is "Continuous." You may need
to change this for some multi-bin printers--see your printer
manual. A printer that uses cut paper but feeds itself
automatically is considered "Continuous."

Double Sided Printing: If your printer can print on both sides of
the paper, and you are creating a vertical-fold booklet, check
this box. For all other printers, and duplex printers used with
horizontal-fold booklets, leave this box blank.

Binding Edge: Leave this setting at the default--it will not be
useful while creating booklets.

Text Adjustment: Leave these settings at zero. They are useful
for aligning printouts on labels, but will usually not be helpful


When you click the Labels box, the screen will change to the
"Edit Labels" dialog box.

Label Size: For letter paper, enter 5.5" for the width, and 8.5"
for the height. For A4 paper, enter 148mm for the width, and

All Rights Reserved (C) Copyright 1993 Jerry Stern

B O O K B I L D ( Windows ) V. 1.0 15

210mm for the height. For other formats, see the list starting on
page 11.

Number of Labels: Enter 2 columns and 1 row for all vertically-
folded booklets. For horizontally-folded booklets, use 1 column
and 2 rows.

Top Left Corner: Set these measurements to zero.

Distance Between Labels: Set these measurements to zero.

Label Margins: Set these measurements to the default margins you
would like for your booklet pages, probably 1/2" or 12mm each.
These numbers must be greater than or equal to your minimum
printer margins, but you don't need to look them up. When you go
on to the next step, if you have set the margins too small,
WordPerfect will automatically reset them to the minimum sizes.
After setting all the numbers and measurements above, click on OK
and Select as needed to return to your document. The new form
will be chosen in you document and ready to use, and when you
need to select it again, you need only select the booklet from
the Paper Size/Type list.


When you run BOOKBILD, it will remind you of the steps covered in
this section with this message:

Before continuing, did you . . .
Select a paper type containing labels 2 across by 1 down?
Move all setup and tab set codes to Document Initial Codes?
Restore all text to the Base Font before each page break?
Break all multiple-page tables into single-page tables?
Generate all tables, cross references, and indexes?


Before formatting your booklet, you must select a paper size and
type, and that code must be placed in the Document Initial Codes
area. Press Layout, Document, Initial Codes, Layout, Page, Paper
Size. From the list, pick the one of the Booklet formats. (If you
haven't created a Booklet format yet, see page 13.)

Now you may format your document normally. You may choose
graphics, tables, equations, cross references, and all other
advanced features normally, with two exceptions: 1) No feature

All Rights Reserved (C) Copyright 1993 Jerry Stern

B O O K B I L D ( Windows ) V. 1.0 16

should cross over a page break. For example, in a multiple-page
table, rather than letting WordPerfect automatically break the
table for you, end the table on each page, and start a new and
separate table on the next page. Paired codes, such as
[BOLD][bold], may safely cross page breaks. 2) Don't use any
automatic numbering features, such as box captions that use
automatic box numbers--see the limitations section on page 9.

Remember: booklets are four pages long, or eight, or 64, but
always a multiple of four pages. If you booklet isn't the right
length, BOOKBILD will pad it with blank pages at the end to make
it work.


Once all the formatting of your document has been completed, you
must begin to convert it to a form that BOOKBILD can handle. The
first step is to check the beginning of your document for margin
codes, font codes, page numbering codes, and any other codes
EXCEPT headers and footers. Move all the codes you find into the
Document Initial Codes area. Here's how: Turn on Reveal Codes
(Alt-F3), Select or block the codes to be moved, and choose Cut
from the Edit menu. Now choose Layout, Document, Initial Codes,
Edit, and Paste. Click on Close to return to the editing screen.


No Base Font codes should be used in a booklet. Your work will be
far faster and easier if you use paired styles to mark all of
your font changes. If you must use Base Fonts, then restore the
text to the original font at the bottom of every page.

If you restrict yourself to paired style codes and paired
attribute codes, such as [HEADLINE] Formatted Text Here!
[headline], then you do not need to turn off the codes after
every page. However, all OPEN styles and OPEN codes, such as [Tab
Set], [L/R Mar:1:, 1"], or [Leading Adj:0.02",0"], must be reset
to the original settings at the bottom of every page.


Nearly there! If you use lists, cross-references, tables of
contents, or any other feature from the Mark Text menu, Generate
the document by choosing Tools, Generate, and click on Yes.

Save your file. You will need at least one blank document
available. However, Bookbild will run fastest if the only
document open is the unformatted brochure.

Run the BOOKBILD macro by pressing Macro (Alt-F10), typing
BOOKBILD, and pressing (Enter), and pressing (Enter) or clicking
on OK at the reminder prompt if you really are ready to convert
the document. Safety features have been built into BOOKBILD that
will insist that you save before running the macro, because
during the conversion process, the original document will be lost
and replaced by the resequenced page set.


After the conversion, you will still need to move headers and
footers, and add Suppress codes to keep those codes from printing
on pages where they don't belong. These remaining steps cannot be
done with a macro, because only you, as the designer of your own
document, can understand what you really want the finished
product to look like. Starting with the file as created by
BOOKBILD, move any header and footer codes to the new beginning
page of the booklet, e.g. page 4 on a one-page booklet, and add
Suppress codes as needed. Preview and print as you like, but if
you must make editing changes that affect page breaks, make the
editing changes in the original file (not the result file), and
then save and run BOOKBILD again.


To print a booklet on both sides of the paper on any printer
except a "duplex" or double-sided printer, you will need to run
the set of pages through the printer twice. For the first run,
select File, Print, click the Multiple Pages button, and click on
Print. A new dialog box will appear. From the Odd/Even list,
choose Odd. WordPerfect will print only the physical odd pages of
the booklet, and will ignore the [Pg Num:] codes. Next, feed the
stack of pages back into the printer in the same order, and
repeat the steps; this time choose Even from the Odd/Even list.

For vertically-folded booklets, feed the pages in the same
direction (but opposite side up) as on the first pass. For
horizontally-folded booklets, turn the stack end-for-end before

If your original document needed generation before printing,
WordPerfect will ask whether to print, because changes were made
since the last time the indexes and tables of contents, etc. were
rebuilt. If you generated immediately before saving the document
and running BOOKBILD, you should not generate again before
printing the reordered document.


Although most experienced printing firms will have handled
booklets before, not all of their employees will understand how
your pages must be oriented for your booklet to keep all the
pages in order. Always make a mock-up copy for the printer, and
fold it, and try to make it into a completed sample of how the
finished brochure should look. The sample should be in addition
to a set of unfolded pages, printed on one side only. The extra
few minutes now will save you days later.

If you choose either of the horizontally-folded formats, attach
some notes to the sample pointing out that each page must be
turned end-for-end before printing the second side.


1) Before I ran BOOKBILD, my document was eight pages long. Now
it's longer, with some blank half pages.

You probably had an open code for Base Font, or Left/Right
Margins, somewhere in the body of the text. When the pages were
re-ordered, those codes affected pages that should not have had
those settings.

Go back to your original document, and search each page for any
and all codes, especially fonts and margins, and add codes at the
bottom of the page that turn off, or restore, the changes made by
those codes. If those fonts need to be on following pages, turn
them on at the beginning and off at the end of every page. Try to
convert your document into a series of individual documents that
carry no codes over between pages unless they affect every page
of the document.

2) Some of my [TAB] codes turned into [RGT TAB].

Your document probably contains both a change in Base Font, and a
change in the tab settings, somewhere inside the document.
WordPerfect makes that change automatically under some

combinations of small tabs and large fonts. Look for a [Tab
Set: ... ] code in the original document, and either remove it,
or add another tab setting at the end of the page, that resets
the tab positions to those in effect at the document's beginning.

3) My computer is old and slow, so using Odd or Even printing
from the Multiple Pages option is very slow. Hints?

Edit your paper style and type for the booklet, and change
"Prompt to Load?" to "Yes." Then print the entire document
normally, and as each page comes out of the printer, turn it so
that the second pass will print on the blank side, and feed it
back in. You will have to press "Go" for each page to tell
WordPerfect that the next sheet of paper is ready.

4) An error message appears, announcing that execution is being
canceled because of a "Not Found" condition."

Check the location of the files copied from the distribution
disk. The BOOKBILD.WCM file must be in the macro directory. See
the details beginning on page .


Using Bookbild/Windows is nearly the same as using the DOS
version, with one simplification: It is not necessary to add an
initial font code to Document Intitial Codes in the Windows
version. That code is now copied automatically. All other
document preparation is unchanged from the DOS version.


Writing software in a macro language is like controlling a
rowboat by towing it from a distance of five parsecs.
Bookbild for Windows should work with all future releases of
WP/WIN 5.2. BUT, sometimes new "features" disable old
features, as they did in the DOS 3/9/92 change to the list
files options. When this happens, try turning "off" the new
features if the macros don't seem to like the new release.
When in doubt, write for support--there will be either a fix
or a new release, as needed, to fix any problems caused by
new features.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
