    My wife has written some music in Finale Notepad. There are 12 sheets of music and she wants to print them on A4 paper 2-up double-sided in a booklet arrangement. This means that sheet 1 and sheet 12 will be on the same side of the same piece of paper, with sheet 2 and 11 on the other side of the piece of paper.
    The problem is that you cannot tell Finale to print page 1 and 12. You can only tell it to print from page x to page y.
    I can see three solutions to this problem. I can print it all out as a pdf document. However, adobe reader is the same in that I can only specify printing page x to page y. So the first possible solution would be to find a pdf reader that has the flexibility to print page 1 and 12 and then set my printer driver to print 2-up.
    The second solution would be to print out all the pages individually as 12 single page pdf documents and then use a piece of software that can merge two pages together?
    The third solution would be to find a printer driver piece of software that would intercept printing instructions and give a load of options for printing the output as a booklet.
    Oh, and it needs to be FREEWARE or a few dollars. Fine Print is more than I wanted to spend.
    So if you have any suggestions for:
    1. pdf reader that can print non-consecutive pages.
    2. pdf merging software.
    3. a FinePrint freeware alternative
    ...please let me know.
    Thank you
