Default How To? A6 Book

Hi all,



Hoping someone can assist.

I have a number of pages (about 30) that I want to print using an A4 printer in to a A6 booklet size.

I can do it using the Booklet function to A5 but I need it printed in the smaller format.

I found a tutorial here (Making an A6 booklet in OpenOffice.org the easy way // 2657 Productions) but it is for open office is there a way to do the same thing in Word (Word 365 on Windows 10).

Thanks for any help you guys can give me.

Bottom line is there is no easy way to produce this. You don't have A5 paper and will need to cut A4 in the middle after printing on both sides. The biggest trick is working out how the spreads align and what goes on the back of each pair.

For starters, you need a pagecount multiple of 4 so your ~30 pages needs to be either 28 or 32.

Then your (2 page) spreads page order should be in pairs which need to add to x+1 with the odd number always on the right. eg for 32 pages the facing pairs are 32,1 on the back is 2,31; 30,3 on the back is 3,29 etc. To do this to A6 size you print that sheet's page order as 32,1,30,3,2,31,3,29 as 4up double sided - flipping on long edge.
