naujoks5 posted a topic in Discussions and Suggestions for Affinity Publisher Beta on DesktopI am helping my church office print a newsletter. They use Windows 10 and have the latest version of Publisher Beta. We need to bring in a booklet format (8.5x11 to an 11x17 page). There are a couple of short tutorials on the Web, but though it seems simple, we do not get acceptable results. The little page icon in the upper right of the Print menu shows a proper image, it does not come out that way. What we get is an enlarged bleeding image that is offset to the right by several inches. Has anyone had good results making a booklet (saddle-stitched style), and if so, are there secrets to making it come out right? Or are there some step-by-step instructions anywhere that would help me? Any help would be appreciated.
I'm trying to use my double-sided printer to print a 192 page book in signatures, and to export a PDF of the file so that others can do the same. Is it possible to press print, select the Booklet option, AND somehow tell AP that I'm looking for signatures of 4 or 5 sheets each? At the moment when I select "Booklet" and ask it to print pages 1 - 16, I get page 194 included in the mix. What I'm looking for is an automatic way to print my 192 page document with correct booklet page ordering for pages 1-16 only, then pages 17-32 only, etc. I'm hoping there is an easier way than creating separate files for each group of 16 pages!
In Publisher I set up a 12 page booklet (facing pages) , 2 pages per side of letter sized paper which will have 6 sides. If I print entire document everything is in the correct place. In PagePlus with a similar document, if I specify to print page 1 it correctly prints page 12 on the left side, and page 1 on the right side of a sheet. I get the same result if I tell it to print pages 1, 12. However, in Publisher, if I tell it to print page 1 I get a sheet with page 1 printed on the right side, but the left side is blank rather than having page 12. In Publisher, if I tell it to print pages 1, 12 I get a sheet with page 1 on the right and the left is blank, and I get a second sheet with page 12 on the left and the right is blank. I cannot get it to correctly print individual sheets unless I print the entire publication. So if I am printing a sample copy of the booklet and decide to make a change on 1 page of the booklet, I cannot reprint a particular sheet to replace in my sample copy; I have to reprint the entire booklet. And, by the way, I can't find a Print Preview icon/menu item in Publisher.
