ClickBook for Windows (All)
Q: How can I get my Table of Contents page numbers
to align vertically? When generating a Table of Contents page, use
spaces between the titles and page numbers
instead of dot or dash leaders. Another solution
is to select a No Scaling layout; however, this
requires the reformatting of your document to fit
correctly on the booklet size mini-page.
Q: How do I get right justified text to print
A: Select a No Scaling layout; however, this
requires the reformatting of your document to fit
correctly on the booklet size mini-page. For more
information, click on the Help tab, select About
ClickBook, and scroll down the Help Index to
select No Scaling. Right justified text does not
have any special characteristics other than extra
spacing to align it at the right edge. When the
text and extra spacing get scaled the result does
not always have a consistent right edge from line
to line. There is no way to completely prevent
this so either turn-off right justification or
use a No-scaling layout in ClickBook.
Q: How do you print to a file?
A: This feature is useful if you want to print to a
printer that is not connected to your computer.
If you do not already have a driver for the
destination printer installed, you will need to
do so and set it up to be used with ClickBook.
Connect the non-ClickBook printer you want
to use to the port named "FILE:" (If you need
information on how to do this, please consult
your Windows documentation).
In your application program, print your document
to the printer that's now connected to "FILE:".
At the prompt, enter a filename for the first
print file for the first side. If the destination
printer has duplexing, you can enable the
ClickBook option to "Use Printer's duplexing" and
you will have only one print file.
When the front side has printed to the file, you
can click the Print Second Side button right
away, since there is no paper to reinsert. At the
prompt, enter a filename for the second print
When you are ready to print to the printer, take
the two print files to the other computer. Print
the first-side file.
When that file is done printing, reinsert the
paper and print the second-side file.
Q: My regular stapler doesn't work very well for binding my
booklets. How can I make my booklets look more
A: Most normal staplers are too small to use easily
on large booklets, or even if they are big
enough, it is difficult to line up the staples
properly with the spine of the booklet. This can
result in less than ideal booklets. The best
solution we have found is the Stanley-Bostitch
Booklet Stapler. Blue Squirrel offers special
pricing on this stapler, as well as the more
economical Long Reach Stapler.
We recommend the Long Reach stapler because it works well for different sized books. It also has a stopper that can be pre-set for the middle of the book.
Q: How can I print multiple Web pages in one
A: To print multiple Web pages as one booklet, print
each page and let them accumulate in ClickBook.
After printing the third booklet, ClickBook won't
be brought forward as the active application.
When you have finished sending the desired Web
pages to ClickBook, then go to ClickBook. Make
sure everything is set correctly, then print.
Q: How do I fix the back pages from printing upside
A: Open up ClickBook, and under the File / Printer Setup dialog, select your printer and click on the Printer Setup button. Here you can select the style of the duplex orientation. If you duplexing is set to Automatic, set it to Reverse. If you print a Side-by-Side book and it is upside-down, or a flip-book and it is upside-down, but the other layout works, then put a checkmark in the "By Layout" setting. You must have the latest version of ClickBook to do this.
Use NotePad or other text editor to edit the
CLIKBOOK.INI file that is located in your Windows
directory; the default location is in C:\WINDOWS.
Locate the line containing your printer model or
the closest one to it. Change the last letter
right after the equals sign (=). If it is Y
change it to N; if it is N change it to Y.
If you have a PostScript duplexing printer and
this problem persists, edit the CLIKBOOK.INI file
and add the following line to the [Global]
section: Reverse PS Duplexing=1
Q: How do I delete Layouts?
A: You can delete layouts, but first write down the
names of each layout you want to delete.
Then go to your ClickBook layouts folder in
Windows Explorer (right-click on your start Menu &
select Explore, and browse to the location where
your ClickBook layouts are stored).
In Windows XP, the default location is: C:\Program Files\ClickBook\Layouts.
In Windows Vista, and Windows 7, the default location is C:\Users\Public\ClickBook\Layouts
From there, click on
the sub -folders to locate the files you wish to
delete. Select each name that you wrote down and
press delete to get rid of the layouts you don't
Starting with ClickBook 13 (MMX), you can delete any layouts you've created by hitting the "Delete" button in Modify Layouts.
Q: ClickBook printers don't appear in the Printers
folder or my application.
You need to
have the equivalent of Power User or Administrator rights so
ClickBook can setup a printer. Contact your
System Administratior and have him change your
users rights to this. "Full Control" of the
printer and "Change" permission on the spool
Q: Where can I get the ClickBook macros, so that I
