It is almost impossible nowadays to print badly from a Windows program onto A4 paper. But printing A5 booklets, or filofax sheets, or calendars, can be a nightmare. Most word processors will print on various sizes of paper, but not in the fancy sideways orientation you need to produce a booklet such as a service sheet, where pages one and four must be on one side of the paper and pages two and three on the other.

Quickbook is a Windows program which takes output from your normal word processor and reformats it to fit booklets, filofax pages, and any number of other special formats. It is not perfect: it will not handle Portex organiser paper, for example. But 90 per cent of the time it is simple and useful. It costs dollars 49.95 and dollars 13.95 shipping ( pounds 42.50); and must be ordered from the US on 010 716-871-7869 or 010 716-873-0906 (fax).
