I am trying to print an A4 leaflet (two fold) into an A3 paper since our Ricoh Aficio MP C2050 PCL 5C office printer costings is cheaper per print not per paper size. Once I get the print out- I can just cut it into two and fold the leaflets
I have been able to convert the Indesign to pdf and print, however it doesnt appear the correct size, I was expecting to see two A4 equivalent leaflet on an A3 paper which i just neet to cut in the middle, but instead
1) the print out is smaller on the A3
2) and after I cut in the middle the lower portion is misaligned. ie the upper border is too high
not sure if im explaining this correctly, could someone help?
Hi Willi, not sure where to select NONE with your advice, as you can see with this print screen, Im quite happy with layout but the size is smaller than A4 and when cut in half the lower portion does not align
As Peter recommended you should create an A4 document.
Either save als PDF/x4 and place it in an A3 InDesign or place the indd in the A3 directly. The second method can cause problems on some network systems.
What I have seen on your photo, I would recommend to create such a folder on 6 single pages in 2 spreads, it makes it easier to not get messed around with the foldings. Since Id CS5 it is possible to create indd files with different widths of the pages.
And ther ist also a simplier way to create a screen shoot without a digital camera, click ctrl+print and paste it in an image editor and crop it there, it would be less work for you and for us better to recognize.
