How to Format a Booklet in Google Docs

Here’s our step-by-step guide on how to format a booklet in Google Docs.

Step 1

First, open a new blank Google Docs document.

We’ll need to adjust the page setup settings to create a proper booklet in Google Docs. We can access these settings by clicking File > Page setup.

Select Insert > Headers and footers > Headers to add an optional header to your document.

Under Options, you can also choose to add page numbers to your booklet.

In the Page numbers dialog box, you can choose to add your page numbers in either the header or footer of your document. You can also indicate what number to start at.

Click on Apply to add the page numbers to your booklet document.

Step 7

Once you’re satisfied with your formatting, click on File > Print to print out your document. You may also use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+P.
