The total page count in your .pdf file must be divisible by 4. Imagine a small booklet made by folding a sheet of paper in half, with the fold at the left. This 4-page booklet has the following page layout:
- Page 1: front closed (cover)
- Page 2: inside left when item is open
- Page 3: inside right when item is open
- Page 4: back side closed
For any item more than four pages in length, imagine stacking these folded sheets to make a bigger booklet - your total page count in the .pdf file must always be divisible by 4. The finished file contains a total page count of 4, 8, 12, 16 pages, and so on.
- Don't forget the cover in the finished file! You may have to include blank pages to create the desired 'rule of 4' appearance.
- If you find that your finished product has a blank last page, you could use this space to add publisher information, program notes or promote other compositions you publish.
