Publisher spreads output to PDF issue

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have laid out some of a book and I'm trying to test it by uploading to Blurb for printing but it's expecting the layout to be 6.875 by 6.875. As you can see from the second screengrab, Publisher is outputting as spreads so each page of the PDF is 6.875 by 13.75. Is there a way to export splitting each spread in two? You can see that the pages are 6.875 by 6.875.

Thanks!

Phil

This seems like the third question this morning about this Blurb thing. (Note to self It must be a new Pokemon like Snapchat and Google) So I am going to have to research before I comment any more, but check the bleed settings.

Hi @Phil_rose

I think what you're looking for is to change PDF export settings from spreads to pages.
Simply in export dialog window, change "Area" to "All Pages" instead of "All Spreads".

I hope it helps.

As @Przemysław said about it. Here is a test I did. I am not too sure if it is the size you want.
