    Multiple Page Priniting

    Any idea where I can find a prog to print several pages on a single sheet?

    PCMag had/has one (PCBook2) but it's having trouble recognizing my printer...

    Regards,

    Now ya see? That's what I get for dealing with you guys in Brit... it's (normal) early morning to you. And what you mean, no time for hobbies? I thought trying to keep me on my toes was a ... hobby(?)

    If you are looking for something more generic to work across applications - see FinePrint Software (shareware).

    Re: Multiple Page Priniting

    Hi Leif,

    I think there's an old rule that states the average user only use about 10% of the features in any given application. Thanks for this tip. My level has now been raised to 11% and in addition, my paper costs should decrease. The bad news is that I intend to keep the savings and will not share them with you ! <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Cheers, Bob
    Regards,
    Bob

    Re: Multiple Page Priniting

    This question made me think of Woody's applet '2x4' - I guess that fell out of use with the improvements being made to MS Word?

    (I'm probably YEARS out of touch regarding 2x4, but back when I had a need for its functionality I really liked it)

    The last version that contained 2x4 was WOPR 97. Word 2000 and later have built-in support for this kind of thing, so 2x4 was dropped.

    Re: Multiple Page Priniting

    Even if the parent software doesn't provide for multiple pages per sheet, many modern printers provide the facility as part of their own inbuilt software.

    Alan:

    Yea, I think the rub comes if your printer doesn't leave the type readable after shrinking... that's where the "special" software comes in....
