Pages per Sheet’ dropdown in the Print dialog box. No problem, you think, I’ll just choose 2 copies duplicate flyer pdf to print two on a page the print dialog.
A5 copies side by side on one sheet, but instead you get two bits of A4 paper, with the same wasted space on the right. At this point you probably bite the bullet and copy your A4 page onto another page, so your source document is now two pages long, page two being a duplicate of page one. There is a better way! My method uses just one A4 page, so any changes need only be made once. Your A4 page is now perfectly printed as 2 A5 pages, side by side on a single A4 sheet. Thank you so much for not complicating the answer.
This is the first time I have ever bothered to write a review. I’ve known about printing 2 per page but always did 2 pages as I didn’t know about the printing tip. My problem is that often if there is a page border set on the page then that seems to shrink even more and prints completely wrong. Any way of changing the page border setting? I do have one issue however, printing it this way from a word doc is fine, but trying the same from a pdf, it doesn’t give me a page range option! Pages’ box, and you can select that and type 1,1 in exactly the same way. A grateful thanks from me.
I played all round the houses before giving in and searching for a solution. Your’s worked perfectly for me and is so easy to do. Thank you thank you, thank you! I wasted a ton of ink and paper before I found your clear and concise instructions. Thank you, an easy solution and saves me having to cut down my A4 sized paper to A6 size. I am trying to make an A5 double sided leaflet I’ve got an A4 size sheet and put it in two columns I’ve just used the left side of the column and changed the margins. Then I’ve done the same on another sheet after that one.
I’ve told it to print double sided this works but the only problem is the other side is upside down when printed. Thank you so much for this Iain. It worked perfectly first time, and you’ve most likely saved me lots of wasted time trying to work out how to do it. You may have solved this by now but for the benefit of others looking for a solution. This should get it the right way up.
