ClickBook is powerful and easy-to-use software that lets you print information from different sources to create customized, printed portable publications. It can prints files, documents, graphics, spreadsheets, or web pages from any windows application. ClickBook doesn’t change any formatting done by the application program. Each page is preserved exactly as the application sent it to ClickBook including margins, page numbering, headers/footers and the entire paragraph formatting. It formats your document in several ways, depending on the print layout you select and you may make any modifications to it.

ClickBook has a user-friendly interface that makes printing very easy. The printing process typically begins in the application program where you choose to print your document. You just need to prepare your document as you usually would, and then give the print command to start the printing process. Set options as you wish in the print dialog box, choose the ClickBook printer, and click OK. This launches ClickBook. You will then select a layout, optionally change other settings, and hit the ClickBook print button to send the print job to the printer. ClickBook gives you instructions at each step of the way, including how to re-insert the paper to print the second side. Following the instruction ensure that the backside is printed correctly relative to the front side and that after you cut and assemble the booklet, the pages are in right order.

ClickBook has many new features loaded to serve your needs more precisely. Its quick start wizard will give you a choice for what type of document you’d like to print. (If you don’t want to see the wizard every time you can uncheck the option “show this wizard on startup.") This wizard will take you to the most popular payout category. If you don’t like the layout selected then you can choose a different layout from the category. ClickBook comes with some sample documents for each layout. Most of the documents are Microsoft Word documents that can be used as a starting point when creating booklets, tri-folds, French folds, labels, and so on. The sample document will be uploaded in Word or other word processor and you can modify the contents to meet your needs. There is an in-built poster wizard to make a poster banner. You need to choose the size as per your requirements for your poster or banner, and ClickBook will automatically determine the pages needed to create it. All these features help you to print and customize your digital photos, documents, emails, online content, and other critical information into 170-plus mobile and convenient layouts.
