I was just trying to use the N-up when printing and I was excited to see that feature but I found that I couldn't enter a value into the top, VGap, Left, and HGap fields. I can use the arrows to change them in whole inch increments. I can not enter my own value. I was trying to make a 3-up document with a third of a sheet for each. I created a spread that was 8"w x 3.166"h and that would require a .25" Top and a .5" VGap but I can only select whole inch values.

I've got this feature working but from looking at yours the background for the entries Left, Top, etc are dark grey. Mine are white and the text I enter is white so I can't see what I've done until I hit enter and then the text turns black. Thanks for your help.

Hi soundmanbrett,

   Like Typo988, I have no problem with N-up  though   i) I change the paper size from defined by driver to the actual paper size I'm going to print on   and   
ii) I changed from Range  Document to  Range  Selection  as I'd simply  drawn a rectangle of the size you'd tried

What version are you using I'm using Beta 257, and text is clearly visible using Light or Dark modes2033754072_Affinitynup.PNG.24fb7436d18214aeaad840cbc8a24684.PNG

Finally I set up a spread of the required size, drew a rectangle on it then set N up to use Document as the range and that works too1805111633_Affinitynupspread.PNG.f7937c20066145422dae3bb9cc279823.PNG

Hi soundmanbrett,

Following my post above, it is interesting to note that if you set the Down value to 3 but  leave the Repeat  at  1   then a) the preview pane shows ONE copy of whatever you are going to print, AND a dotted box (not immediately obvious until you know it appears), showing how much space on the page would be used.  Printing at this setting only produces one instance on the print out.  b) if you set the vertical gap too large so that the resultant printout wouldn't fit on one page, then the preview turns red.845321954_Affinitynupspread3.PNG.d491a7bbb9fdffeb4e7127b04ca71b95.PNG 541616323_AffinityNupwarning.PNG.ad1557f1693ca9097dca3fc88efa56bb.PNG

When repeat is set to more than 1 then the preview shows what the printout will look like but again if the resultant settings mean that the printout won't fit one page, the preview turns red 1585397141_Affinitynupspread2.PNG.17c3c854ca3f2a9856c08f4776b82452.PNG  Repeat set to 3 and V gap to 0.5 in

Finally if you set Repeat  to 4, 5 or 6 then you would get two pages of printout, set to 7, 8 or 9 you would get 3 pages, etc.  Hope you sort out your original problem of not being able to see/set gaps - have you tried resetting Publisher Beta by holding down CTRL whilst starting Publisher until a prompt box appears?
