how to create and print a booklet
I wanted to print a booklet, i.e. “print a document two pages at a time ordered in a way that folding the whole printout would produce a booklet, half the size of the paper which could be stapled in the middle.”
How to do it? Adobe Reader can do this but I had no luck. It seemed that it created the booklet correctly but when I printed it, the pages were flipped on the long side instead of the short side, so the result landed in the dustbin.
There is a nice little software called PdfBooklet that can create a booklet PDF that you can then print. Just open the original PDF in PdfBooklet, make sure that the ordering is OK (it should be), then click on the “Go” button to create a new booklet PDF. PdfBooklet didn’t show all the pages correctly in its view pane but the produced output was OK.
