General Example





Booklet Printing


Booklet printing is a form of duplex printing that prints more than one page on a sheet of paper AND arranges the pages in the order used in the book format.


In general, if you can get the document into a PDF format, Adobe Reader DC or Foxit Reader both do a splendid job to set up and print the document in the booklet format.


General Example - Adobe Reader DC

  • Open the PDF file in Adobe Reader DC
  • Click the Print icon
  • Set the Page Sizing to Booklet, the subset to both sides, and the binding to the left (for English)
  • Open Properties > Set the paper size and type, select a general print shortcut or a duplex shortcut - generally do not worry about the orientation unless the predicted output in the main print menu looks odd.
