Printing from PDF files:

Most booklets are A5 size and printed on A4 paper with two pages on the front and back of each sheet. If you have a duplex printer, double sided printing should be automatic, otherwise it is best to print the even sides first as follows:

1. When you have loaded the PDF click on the print symbol and the print dialogue appears.

2. Set Page Sizing and Handling to Booklet

3. Under Print Range set Booklet Subset to Back Side Only.

4. Set the number of Copies required (if more than one check the Collate box) and click OK.

5. To print portion of booklet select Pages to Print (multiple of 4) e.g. 13-16

6. Return the printed sheets to the tray ensuring the correct orientation depending on the printer so it will print on the plain side.

7. Repeat 3 to 5, this time with Subset set to Front Side Only.
