Print a book as a set of booklets

Recommended Posts


When I want to print the book, I have to print the series of booklets (12 or 16 or 20 pages each). Now I have to export the book to pdf and print there. Because Affinity Publisher doesn't provide this feature. Even if I choose "Booklet" in print menu and select the page range (f.e. 1-16) it use the whole document, not the first 16 pages to create the booklet. If I choose "Book" printing option, then it is the set of 4 pages booklets.

Am I doing something wrong or this really important feature is still missing?

Hi @Slava_ welcome to the forums,

As you've found, it's not currently possible to define the number of pages to be used in the booklet imposition in the print dialog on a single document because the print model setting applies to all pages within the file. An alternative approach i've tried is to split the document into sections via the section manager and then untick 'include on export' on all sections except the section/pages I want to create the booklet for and then print, but this results in each page printing on a separate page.

This issue has been raised previously as a part of the thread below but was determined as by design by the developers.


If this is something you would like to see implemented feel free to post this over on the feature request forum. 🙂
