Help...I am trying to creep an entire book

I am using Mac Preps 5.1 on a Mac G5 dual processor/1gig RAM

I am trying to add creep to a 128 pg book that consists of 4-32page web sigs

I am using a saddlestitch template.

My problem: I put my creep in the inner box (.12 ) of the creep window and zero for the outer box.

All my pages move .12 into the gutter where they should auto creep

I want my pages to creep from .12 in the center of the book to zero at page 1.

Can anyone explain or have any suggestions on how I can get a gradual creep throughout the job?

If you place the creep amount in the outer box as a positive number your pages will gradually creep toward the binding edge (spine).

We split the values for creep. 3/4 of the amount goes + in the inner box and 1/4 goes - in the outer box. This gives a nice smooth shingle.
