Printing a Brochure
You can print a Writer document as a brochure or a booklet. That is, Writer prints two pages on each side of the paper, so that when you fold the paper, you can read the document as a book.
When you create a document that you want to print as a brochure, use portrait orientation for the pages. Writer applies the brochure layout when you print the document.
To Print a Brochure
- Choose File - Print.
- In the Print dialog, click Properties.
- In the properties dialog for your printer, set the paper orientation to landscape.
|If your printer prints duplex, and because brochures always print in landscape mode, you should use the "duplex - short edge" setting in your printer setup dialog.|
- Return to Print dialog, and click the Page Layout tab page.
- Select Brochure.
- For a printer that automatically prints on both sides of a page, specify to include "All pages".
- Click OK.
If you print a document in portrait on a landscape page, two opposing sides in a brochure will be printed next to each other. If you have a printer with double-sided printing capability, you can create an entire brochure from your document without having to collate the pages later. If you have a printer that only has single-sided printing capability, you can achieve this effect by first printing the front pages with the "Front sides / right pages /odd pages" option marked, then re-inserting the entire paper stack in your printer and printing all the back pages with the "Back pages / left pages / even pages" option marked.
|If LibreOffice prints the pages in the wrong order, open the Options tab page, select Print in reverse page order, and then print the document again.|
