- What program are you using to print the pdf?
-Does it help to print on A5-paper?
I have W.7 Ultimate and Office 2013.
I want to print a booklet from A4E TO a5.
I have a problem and have previously posted this question in Microsoft Forums. The answer did not deal with the question and I have come here to obtain any assistance that might solve the problem.
I have an HP Deskjet 2050 all-in –one J510a.
I have a 160 page PDF file that I want to print in A5 format to enable a small hand-held booklet to be produced.
I printed the first half, Front Side Only.
When I came to print the Back Side Only, I turned the page around to print on the back of the first page, but the print was in the wrong area.
As previously mentioned, I am printing on A4 paper with an A5 choice, to produce a small booklet.
The two A5 pages of the Front Side are situated in the bottom right quadrant of the A4 paper.
When those pages are turned around the Back Side print-out is situated on the top right quadrant of the A4 paper (Because it too prints out on the bottom right quadrant ) and then does not line up with the Front Side already printed.
(I only printed the first page of the Back Side to check this possible problem.)
The answer that I had from the Microsoft Forum said – “What you're describing suggests a mechanical issue to do with your printer (e.g. paper tray not achieving the required horizontal offset. The amount of misalignment would be half the discrepancy between the front & back pages. Nothing much you can do about that with a PDF.”
I find this rather annoying, as not only does it not make sense to me, but it means that I have now got 80 pages of printed-on-one-side paper which may be of no use but to scribble notes on!
Can anyone explain how I can get the Back Side to line up with the already printed Front Side, or have I really created a great waste of paper and money?!!
Thanks in advance for your interest, and any assistance.
