We're trying to find a better way to create 2 manuals (instructor and
student) for classroom training.

Instructor's manual:
The left page (even number) is the instructor's portion with notes for
lecture. The right page (odd number) is the student's portion with page
numbers that instructor can refer to. They usually match one to one but
sometimes instructors portion may have more pages.

Student's manual is easier with all the pages in one document.

As you can tell, it's a big hassle to create the instructor's manual.
Currently we create the manual by manually insert the student's portion
into the document. If revisions are needed, you have to revise at 2
different documents. The page numbers does not match student's manual

We're looking for a solution that would make the task easier. I wonder
if you know of an application that can merge 2 documents (eg. Partial
instructor's manual + student's manual) and give the customized
numbering for the instructor's manual or any solution to our problem?

Thank you for your advice,

Peter Liu
