    20 page booklet printing

    I used a booklet pproduced in publisher 2003 in XP and now have vista with
    publisher 2007. I am unable to print the booklet as before when I printed
    (current page) and flipped the pages individually myself. The print previer
    shows the correct pages but prints out different then previewed. Got to be
    something I'm missing in the set up. I used A4 1/2 page and went through the
    advanced print set up for proper page feed etc.

    Re: 20 page booklet printing

    Printing a booklet is a lot different in Publisher 2007.

    Print, type pages 1,20
    Turn the page over, print 19,2
    Keep in mind when you turn the page over you need to put the larger number
    first.

    If you look at print preview and choose multiple views on the toolbar, you will
    see what page is next to what page.

    Re: 20 page booklet printing

    I have pretty much same problem as TomKat with a 24-page booklet that isn't
    printing the same as BEFORE Vista.

    BEFORE VISTA.... I could Print pages 1-24, turn it over and print the back
    in a matter of minutes. Then cut in half, fold, and staple and I had 2
    complete booklets. In fact, I could enter # of copies: 12.... and I'd soon
    have that! No problems!


    AFTER VISTA....Specifically when I enter Print pages 1-24 front and back,
    the printer prints only 3 pages F&B, then I turn the pages over and print the
    backside. To print more, I enter Print pages 12-18, and the printer prints 2
    more pages which I turn over to print the back. The final Print pages 11-14
    results in the last two pages being printed and again turning it over.
    Finally I have my 24-page booklet!

    In addition, Print Preview only shows 6 pages.

    My printer is compatible with VISTA and according to manufacturer, the
    problem is NOT with the printer.

    Any suggestions? H E L P !!!!!!

    Vista has nothing to do with your printing Publisher documents.

    What version Publisher do you have? If you have Publisher 2007 printing a
    booklet with two pages per sheet is almost impossible. Hopefully it will be
    fixed in the next service pack.

    Re: 20 page booklet printing

    Thanks Mary for your response--discouraging as it is. I'm glad to hear it's
    not a Vista problem.

    I have Publisher 2007.

    With the page setting at 1/2A4 booklet 5x8 and printing front and back
    (manually), it seems to be okay, but not with page size 4.25x5.5 which I've
    been using for my booklet for 10 million years! That's a bit confusing.

    Am I understanding correctly that Publisher 2007 is not going to work with
    my booklet --unless I manually put two like-pages on each sheet or cut the
    finished printed booklet to the size I want? (haven't tried that though..)

    Could I reinstall ONLY Publisher 2003 and print it that way?

    Sure, you can re-install Publisher 2003. Create a folder on your hard drive and
    install there. You'll have less grief.

    I understand that the next service pack will have the fix for two booklets per
    sheet of stock. Good news.
    Glad you have your problem solved for now. Thanks for posting back.

    Printing business is a vast field with various forms of printing techniques. These techniques require certain amount of alteration with the developments of advanced technologies. One such recent development in the business is the catalogue printing method.
