Printing a Brochure

From LibreOffice Help

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

  1. Choose File - Print.
  2. In the Print dialog, click Properties.
  3. In the properties dialog for your printer, set the paper orientation to landscape.
Tip.png 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.
  1. Return to Print dialog, and click the Page Layout tab page.
  2. Select Brochure.
  3. For a printer that automatically prints on both sides of a page, specify to include "All pages".
  1. 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.
