InDesign Cs - create A5 booklets for printing on A4 paper

In Pagemaker 6.5 for Mac system 9, I could very easily create 8, 12, 16, 24 page A5 booklets (for church services, magazines etc).
Just before printing, Plug-in > 'build booklet' command. A new document would open, with the pages on A4 ready for printing - pp 1 & 24, 2 & 23 etc etc.

I have not been able to work out, or find this in 'Help' etc in InDesign CS. Feel sure that such a program should have this facility.  Can you advise me??

My canon pixma 6150 does print on both sides of paper but the second/back side is upside down so I cannot make booklet


select long side flip rather than short side flip for an A4 booklet. An A5 booklet should be set for short side flip.

Mpc5503 how to print a a5 booklet


It is done in the authoring program not in any printer. You use Word, Publisher etc. You set to Booklet or 'Mirror' which leaves the wide gap in the middle and print on A4 paper and fold in half. I used to print Inn menus on MS Publisher.

I need to pull an 11" x 48" sheet through my printer


That will never work as the printer looks for pages that are standard sizes. If it comes across something that is larger, the printer reports a paper jam. Making banners is best done on dot matrix printers using listing paper. Otherwise on a home printer, you use the banner setting in your creation software, MS Word, MS Publisher, and you print as separate pages and stick them together or stick them on a backing sheet.

How to use anuscript manager for photoshop cs2


Adobe InDesign CS2 is a desktop publishing program created by Adobe.
As a predecessor to Adobe and Aldus' PageMaker, InDesign is a leading solution for creating high quality print media like that seen in brochures, magazines and professionally created documents.

While not the most current version, InDesign CS2 managed to get above average reviews that still make it a viable choice for those interested in desktop publishing.
History


In the mid 1980's a company known as Aldus literally revolutionized the way printed media was created.
Before Aldus PageMaker, big machines and printing presses were used.

This new software made the process much easier and gave developers much more creative freedom.

In 1995 Adobe purchased Aldus and changed the software's name to Adobe PageMaker.
In 2001 Adobe stopped the creation and support of PageMaker and replaced it with a totally original desktop publishing program, InDesign.

Pros

Despite a few minor issues, Adobe InDesign CS2 integrates well with their other programs.
This means that you'll be able to use other popular Adobe products such as Photoshop to help create your desktop media.

According to a MacWorld.com review, many new features and menus have been copied from competitor QuarkXPress, making InDesign much more accessible to users of its largest rival.

Another new, well-received feature is Snippets.
Snippets allow you to copy specific parts of a document or image and save it as its own file.

This makes reusing the image, effect or text much easier than before.

Cons

While InDesign CS2 offers new text capabilities, they're features that have been included in Microsoft Word for years such as anchored frames, auto correction and bullet point lists.

Some features of Photoshop, such as blending modes, are incompatible with InDesign, though compatibility is touted as a key feature in InDesign CS2.

Another compatibility disadvantage is that you can only export content to the Web using Adobe GoLive CS2 so those who use other programs such as Macromedia Dreamweaver must either purchase GoLive or go without this feature
.
Tutorials

Learning new software can be difficult.
Especially such advanced software that has as many features as Adobe InDesign CS2.

On their official website, Adobe offers many tutorials and "how to" guides for their products.
To make locating CS2 specific information even easier, enter "CS2" into the search bar at Adobe's tutorial page.

http://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/topics.html

The information provided, along with the in-program tutorials in InDesign CS2 will be enough to get you familiar with and using InDesign CS2 quickly.

Purchasing

Since InDesign CS2 is an older program no longer supported by Adobe, you cannot purchase it directly from their website.

Finding the software may be a bit tricky, which is why you may want to consider a more recent version of InDesign.

If you don't want to pay the hefty price tag associated with the most current version you'll be much more likely to find the last version.

Many websites offer the next to current version, though prices vary from $99 to over $600.

Oki - how to print booklet?


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.

Making a booklet out of a multi-page PageMaker file


many questions, the answer should be yes and all is in the driver settings but it all depends on if you have the correct driver installed and configured correctly for your copier and if your finisher is a booklet finisher. if you have every thing laid out in page maker correctly and the driver is setup correctly then it should do just fine.

I need to make a booklet. so when i print the document it be read like in abook


Hi, I dont actually use PageMaker, so you might need to check your help file for more info.
Basically you need to look for an option that lets you 'impose' your document (there may be a tool box or print option for imposition).

If you cant find it just do the imposition yourself.
For a simple 8 page A5 booklet you would want two A5 pages side-by-side on an A4 sheet of paper.
Back cover would be on the left (pg8) - Front on the right (pg1).
Inside front cover on the left (pg2) - inside back on the right (pg7).
Then the centre pages - right (pg3) - left (pg6)
Inner double pages - left (pg4) - right (pg5)

Hope that helps!

Translate a pagemaker file into indesign


This is from Adobe InDesign (CS3) Help module:
Convert PageMaker documents InDesign can convert document and template files from Adobe PageMaker 6.0 and later. When you open a PageMaker file, InDesign converts the original file information to native InDesign information. InDesign files are saved with an .indd filename extension.
For more information, see the PageMaker Conversion Guide (PDF) at www.adobe.com/go/learn_pmconv. Before opening the document in InDesign, you may want to do the following:
  • If the PageMaker file or its linked graphics are located on a network server, floppy disk, or removable drive, it may not open as expected if an interruption in data transfer occurs. To prevent data transfer problems, copy documents and their links to the hard disk, preferably in the same folder where the PageMaker publication is stored, before opening them in InDesign.
  • You may want to use Save As in PageMaker to clear unnecessary hidden data.
  • To ensure that all links are maintained, copy all linked files to the same folder where the PageMaker publication is stored.
  • Make sure that all necessary fonts are available in InDesign.
  • Repair broken graphics links in the PageMaker publication.
  • If you have a problem converting a large PageMaker document, convert portions of the PageMaker file separately to isolate the problem.
If you cannot open a corrupt PageMaker document in PageMaker, try opening it in InDesign. InDesign can recover most documents that PageMaker cannot open.

Printing 2 pages on landscape document


Usually if you see the page in the Publisher window is already landscape, it will go landscape in the Printpreview and also in the print out. I just try to imagine what is your problem.
If I am not mistaken, this is what you did:
You have two "small" pages (maybe A5??) and you want to print it in one page of A4. Of course the A4 should be landscape.
Publisher does not have the facility to set 2 pages A5 in one A4 like in Microsoft Word.
The easiest way is just create a new page with A4, then copy the 2 pages (or you called it flyers) and paste it in that A4 landscape page.
Publisher can do print 2 pages A5 in one sheet A4 but the arrangement is as booklet. You can see the choices in File --> Page Setup --> tab "Layout" --> scroll the Publication type.
I do print 2 pages A5 in one sheet with many variations using addition software named "Clickbook".
Let me know if I m wrong in interpret your problem.

Card making


This machine will only print certain sizes as borderless. A5 is not one of them. You can use the following media with this feature: Matte Paper - Heavyweight: A4, Letter Premium Glossy Photo Paper:A4, Letter, 5 x 7", 10 x 15 cm/4 x 6", 8 x 10" Photo Paper:A4 Premium Semigloss Photo Paper:A4, Letter, 10 x 15 cm/4 x 6" Glossy Photo Paper:Letter, 10 x 15 cm/4 x 6" As you can see A5 is not in the list, therefor you will not be able to print A5 borderless via the normal means.
