Download and installation are very easy but I recommend updating your printer driver before installing it.( Most printer companies offer updates free via their web site.) This program is based on the latest drivers and works best with them installed.

ClickBook can look pretty daunting at first glance, but don't let it throw you. It prints documents into books, brochures, greeting cards, etc. and in any format you want. You have the option of choosing everything from layout to page size and there are preinstalled formats for Avery Day Planner sheets as well. All you really have to do is tell it what you want it to do and ClickBook will even print out instructions for you.

I pulled up a calendar I designed last year and printed it out with the sheets all in order, reverse printing on the back, ready for me to bind and hang. I can't tell you how long it took me to figure out how to layout that thing to print like a top-flip calendar when I originally did it. With ClickBook I had it done in about 30 minutes and went back and printed a small half-fold booklet version, changing only the options to reflect the new size and layout. I experimented with a few other layouts and everything worked great.

Anyone who has a small business or does crafts needs this program. ClickBook can save you a lot of time, money, and worn nerves. It's well worth the registration fee.

Ease of Installation:
Support: There's an excellent online help file and I had a question about printing that I couldn't solve there so I called their technical support and got an answer within 2 minutes.
