Meta Object Ships BookLightning 1.0

Software imposes PDFs in the print panel By Dave Nagel
Meta Object has released BookLightning 1.0, a tool for creating booklets from PDF files. It's available now for Mac OS X.

BookLightning is a Mac OS X utility for imposing PDF files, allowing users to create booklets from PDF files or directly from the print panel. It handles imposition for simple booklets and magazines, arranges pages on sheets for folding and stapling and offers direct printing support for one-stop booklet printing. The software can be used from the print panel (as a PDF Service in Mac OS X 10.2.4 or later) or in a drag and drop configuration. (After dragging a file onto BookLightning, a new file is created and automatically opened in the user's default PDF viewing application.)

BookLightning is available now for Mac OS X for $49. For more information, visit
