I 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.

Well it's unready beta software and probably at this state not meant for production work at all. - However, did you tried instead of printing the exporting as PDF and then reviewing how that might look then?

First the obvious things to check:

The page size used to create the Publisher document should be US Letter (8.5 x 11) to reflect the "finished" page size, with Facing Pages most likely enabled.  This can be checked/changed from Spread Setup if needed.

In the Print dialog you should set the paper size to the size of the actual paper going through the printer (in this case Ledger / 11x17) as that is what the print driver needs to know.

You need to set the document model to Booklet, also in the Print dialog.

The appropriate duplexing option should be set depending on the printer.
