A booklet in Word to PDF


B

Buttercup

I am trying to convert a booklet to PDF. I want the pages to print singly in
order (1,2,3 etc)), not like they print as a booklet (1&8, 2&7, etc.). When
it converts as a booklet both pages appear on one sheet in the pdf file. I
know I can print the pages out individually because it has happened before, I
just don't know how to recreate it.
I use Word 2003, Acrobat Distiller 5, and am on an XP.
Thank you for your help.

Save a copy of the document in Word. In that copy, change the "Multiple
pages" setting from "Book fold" to "2 pages per sheet." This will not change
anything about the layout in Word except the order in which the pages print.
Then print to PDF from that copy.

I wasn't clear. I don't want 2 pages to one sheet. I want one page to one sheet. Like I did at http://www.cbsbettas.org/newsletters.html. But your instructions for putting them in order works great. Thanks.

Ah, in that case it will be a little more trouble (and will waste paper).
You'll need to change the "Multiple pages" setting from "Book fold" to
Normal, change the page orientation to Portrait, and then add 1.25" to Top
and Bottom margins and 1.5" to left and right margins. (This assumes
Letter-size paper; if it's A4 or Legal, you'll need to calculate
accordingly.)
