Dear All,
What are your recommendations for the easiest way of printing a document in landscape orientation, A5 size, double sided, in booklet format - i.e with correct page order?

I have a standard MacBook with no special printing apps currently, running OS Mojave.

Thanks.

Chris

Hello,

-Which version of OS X/macOS?
-Which application and version are you using to view/create the document?
-What brand/model printer and does it have automatic duplex (two-sided) printing capability?

Hi,

OS X Mojave.
Viewing pdf file in Preview, but can print from Pages
Canon 5750 printer, which has automatic double-sided print capability.

Thanks.

OK, thanks.

You should be able to change settings in the Print dialog box. Try clicking on the word Preview and choose Layout. That should give you controls for two-sided layout.

Cory,

Thanks. I've learnt something about the Print command options.

What I was hoping to do though was to print A5 size, at two document pages per sheet, double-sided, so as to create a booklet stapled in the centre. So this would mean, for a 10-page document for example, and ignoring a front cover design, that page 1 prints on the LHS of sheet 1 upper side, page 10 on the RHS, pages 9 & 2 (L & R resp.) on the reverse side of sheet 2, pages 3 & 8 on the top side, and pages 7 &4 (reverse side) and 5 & 6 topside, if you see what I mean.

Is that an available feature in Print, or is there an add-on program that can do it?

Regards,

Chris

To answer my own post, I discovered that Adobe Acrobat Reader has a Booklet option in its Print command
