Starting to get to work on my Valentine's project for my nieces, and have a question.

All of my movies are 30 fps, so I really don't want to include every frame. Therefore, I use the 'Custom' frame numbers to only print a subset of the total frames. When I do a preview, it only shows one "composite" page, rather than an actual page. Therefore, I have no idea if I am cutting out too many frames or leaving too many in. Is there a way to preview a sheet will all the cards? I guess I could PDF a run, but that's rather time consuming. Thanks!

the page you see when you click preview is not a composite, it's the first page.
you can preview the rest of the pages, one at a time, by adjusting the "view page" setting, which determines which page you are currently previewing.

does that answer your question?

flipbook printer used to use a more intuitive way of showing all the pages as a thumbnail list but it really wasn't appropriate for big jobs.  the new method is a bit more cumbersome to work with but is much much faster and scales up to bigger projects better.

Ah! I had the "Stacked Printing" option checked. That's why it looked like everything was 'compressed' to one page. Thanks!

ah that makes sense!
the new "stacked printing" option basically it makes it so that sequential pages end up being printed on top of each other when you stack the sheets to cut them out - makes it easier to assemble a final book. ¬†easiest way to see the effect is to make sure page numbering is on, and then you can see how the pages get laid out.  for big books it can make a huge difference when it comes time to assembling.
