Printing A5 Booklets
on Jan 22, 2010 at 1:20:54 pm

I print a short run A5 booklet in house. It's printed on a Samsung CLP 610 colour Laser, which can duplex. The printer has it's own booklet protocol. The paper used is A4.

If I produce pages in CS4 at A5 size and try to print them 2-up saddle stitch, they come out rotated and A6 size - like you were trying to print 4 up to A4.

The only way I can make it work is to produce the pages at A4 and use the printers booklet making facility. It then reduces them rotates them and imposes them in the right order.

This is OK as a work around, but I may want to go to an outside printer at some point and they will need A5 pages.

I must be missing something here - can anyone give me a blow by blow of how to achieve this while originating in A5 and using Indesign's page imposing?
