multiple pages on one sheet of paper

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to print multiple pages on one sheet of paper?
I want to create a leaflet of 8 pages on 2 sheets of paper size DIN A4 folded in the middle.  So each sheet of paper has 2 pages on the front and 2 pages on the back.

Or a greeting card with 4 pages on one sheet of paper folded twice.

"Corel Draw" offers such layouts in their layout setup.

I would like to have this in Affinity Publisher.

Hi Waltr,

Welcome to the forums :)

This is possible in Affinity Publisher, using the Layout- specifically 'N-up' -and Scale options of the Print dialogue. I've attached a video showing this in an 8page A4 document, laid out to print across 2 A4 sheets of paper. I hope this helps!

Hi Dan,

Thanks for the suggestion. This solution Affinity Publisher offers is a little bit awkward, but it worked.

But how would I solve this problem:
I want to print a kind of birthday card by folding a sheet of paper A4 twice to get a 4-page card A6.
Please see the two attached pdf-files. (Red dotted line A = first fold, green dotted line B = second fold)
How would I do the printer setup in Affinity Publisher? (Good old Corel Draw offers a very simple solution for that in their page layout setup)

No problem at all :)

This isn't a default option in Affinity currently, you'd have to use the same method as before and manually rotate the objects, so the page order would be as follows:

Document Page 1 - Card Page 3 (all objects require rotating 180deg)

Document Page 2 - Card Page 2 (all objects require rotating 180deg)

Document Page 3 - Card Page 4 

Document Page 4 - Card Page 1
