    shrink to 1 page (97)

    I've got a 2 page word doc in portrait mode. How can I shrink these pages onto 1 page (landscape)?

    Hi, CJ--

    I presume you mean booklet style... one page on left and the other on right. If so:
    1. <LI>Note where pagination is (assuming you want it unchanged)
      <LI>Change orientation to landscape in file / page setup.
      <LI>select document and Format / Columns and set for 2 columns
      <LI>position cursor at beginning of line you want to appear on the top, right and Insert / Break / Column Break
      <LI>File / Print Preview use the Shrink to Fit
    Let me know if it works.

    Reformatting may be very hard sometimes, but many modern printer driver support printing in booklet style. Select File-Print-Properties and check if you find an option multipage or something similar. If your printer has such an option, all resizing will be done automatically.
    If your current printer driver does not support booklet style, an updated printer driver with this feature may be available.
    If you can't locate a printer driver with this feature you might use a third party tool like fineprint (see www.fineprint.com for a trial version).

    The 2 columns look perfect as booklet style now. However there was a bit too much text for a single landscape page it seems, so a third column also started on a new page- but that's fine.
