Can someone settle my mind please here? Has the page size setup changed
at some point for doing brochure printing from Writer?
I don't do this too often, so my memory may be wrong. However, I find
this week that to make an A5-size booklet, I need to create A4 pages
with scaled up contents, that are then scaled down [factor sqrt(2)] by
LO and printed 2-up on A4 paper when 'brochure' is selected. Paper size
and orientation is greyed out in the print dialogue.
I'm pretty certain (and the one example I can find from OOo days in 2006
seems to bear this out) that once upon a time, I'd have had to create an
A5 document, specify A4 landscape paper, and brochure mode would then
print my A5 pages unscaled, 2-up.
Is my memory wrong? If things have changed, what was the rationale? -
the latter way seem IMO much more convenient.
Your memory is correct and you should not use the method of scaling
down. For me it works out-of-the-box when my document is A5 and I check
"brochure" in the tab "Page Layout". I use LO5.1 (a current daily
developer build) and have got a printer Epson-WP-4025.
But the communication between LO and your printer might be not optimal.
Thanks for your comment. Glad I'm not imagining things :-)
Unfortunately I don't seem to have any choice in the matter. Whatever
page size I set (format|page) is /always/ transferred automatically to
printer settings, and shows up there greyed out and unchangeable. When I
set 'brochure', the format changes to landscape, and the paper size
stays the same, with the contents printing scaled down. This is with
(The printer itself isn't an issue, btw; but thanks for the thought.
I've long since worked out which way to twist things between out and in
trays to make double-sided come out right!!)
