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

  1. Choose \<emph\>File - Print\</emph\>.

  2. In the \<emph\>Print\</emph\> dialog, click \<emph\>Properties\</emph\>.

  3. In the properties dialog for your printer, set the paper orientation to landscape.

Tip Icon

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 print right pages and left pages.

  1. Click \<emph\>OK\</emph\>.

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, then 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, then you can achieve this effect by first printing out the front pages with the Right\<emph\> pages\</emph\> option marked, then re-inserting the entire paper stack in your printer and printing all the back pages with the \<emph\>Left pages\</emph\> option marked.

If LibreOffice prints the pages in the wrong order, open the \<emph\>Printer Options\</emph\> dialog, select \<emph\>Reversed\</emph\>, and then print the document again.
