The paper you have inserted into the printer, and your page size settings have to match. You can't load A4 paper and tell it to print A5 size. This is why it is printing so small on the A4 paper. It assumes you need to trim it down to A5 size after printing.
Open the file you wish to print. You can open the file directly by right-clicking on "My Computer,"
navigating to the file and double-clicking on it. You can also open the
program by clicking on "Start," choosing "All Programs" and finding the
program. Then click "File," choose "Open," and choose the file you wish
Click on the "Print Preview"
button on the toolbar to see what the finished document will look like
when it prints. You can also access "Print Preview" by clicking on the
"File" menu and choosing "Print Preview" from the menu. The "Print
Preview" window will open and show you exactly what your page will look
like on paper.
Change the font size, margins
and other elements as needed until your document looks the way you want
it to. After your document has been adjusted, click on the "Print"
button on the toolbar or click on the "File" menu and choose "Print"
from the drop-down list.
It happens when the documents is on A4 size and the printer is set to print on letter size (which is smaller in size). Hence the printer automatically resizes the prints which result in larger margins and print as compared to the actual document. Therefore, when you print the documents (Press Ctrl+P) you have to select the paper (A4) from the print properties.
The margins of top and bottom and print size and font size are all the options that given to you inside the software that you are using to print the books. Now you have not mentioned the software that you are using. The two most prominent software for writing and printing books are MS Word 2007 and Adobe Writer. Lets say you are using MS Word 2007. When on the top menu bar you click "Page Layout" button. Then you play and select the parameters that suites you requirement like "Margins" button meets your requirements. You can also check with the "Size" for the Print page sizes. To change the font size in MS Word 2007 highlight the text you want to re-size and then right click after placing the mouse pointer on the text the integer number you will see will be the font size and you can change it according to your liking. One good tip for you for most quality software that are used for printing is that they offer an option "Print preview". It will show you how your document will look like before you print it.
open the print preview by clicking on to the drop down arrow on the right hand side of the printer icon which you can find on any web page or email or a document that you are trying to print from on right hans side top. on the top of print preview window you would get different options .there is an optio which is for the font size/ by default it would be fit to page / change it to 75% or more according to your needs and click on the print option ans see what happens /
please let me know whether it worked or not /
i have other resolutions as well
I believe this is going to be a software issue. Do a print preview of the booklet first to see if they are showing up in the right order. If they are, then it is a printer issues and I really can't help you there, but it they aren't then you know it might be a software issue. Check you formatting on the document before you trying printing it again.
OK, same problem, I've gotten through the solution. I can print and have the first page and last page on one side of the large sheet and the two inside pages on the other side, so that is foldable into a booklet.
I start with a 4 page (US letter sized) document I wish to print as a booklet on tabloid paper.
In the (page layout or editing program's) print dialogue, I've said print all pages, set it at 1 page per sheet, then clicked the printer properties button to open the Xerox Workcenter 7345PS option dialogue.
In the Xerox dialog on the "Paper/Output" tab, selected the larger (Tabloid, 11x17" in my case) paper size, selected 2-Sided Print. Then I select the "Layout/Watermark" tab and clicked the Booklet Layout radio button, chose "Landscape" for the Page Layout Option.
Note: I saved these settings as "Tabloid Booklet" by clicking the down-arrow to the right of "Driver Defaults" so that I could select them and not have to dial in every one of the settings whilst experimenting.
