Making booklets with Adobe Reader

February 23, 2005


A common request from people using PDF is to be able to print multiple pages of a PDF on the one sheet of paper. For example, rather than print out a 10-page PDF document on 10 separate sheets of paper, you could create a booklet by imposing 2 pages from the PDF on each sheet of paper.

Before version 7.0 of Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader were released, users had to look to 3rd party products if they wanted to achieve n-up printing. Now, n-up printing is available to users of the free Adobe Reader 7 via the Print dialog (File > Print), as shown below. The section related to n-up printing is shaded in red.
