On another list a listmate proposes to print a book in two copies side
by side. The page size is 5.5 x 8.5 in. He wants to print two copies
on his laser printer. He wants two impressions of page one side by
side on letter paper, with two copies of page two on the reverse side
etc. for 200 pages. Then he will guillotine the stack making two
copies of the book.
But wait, it gets worse. He is not resetting the book but has a pdf
file as his source. I and others suggested the usual bit of using
PSUtils to set four pages per sheet and folding them etc. but he
doesn't want to get into folding. He has a guillotine and a binder.
He doesn't have a folder.
So, given a pdf file of a 5.5 x 8.5 book as a starting point, is there
a sensible way to massage the pdf or its PS equvalent in a way to
give him what he wants? He is on an Ubuntu system. He asked his
question on the Scribus list.
If you don't read you don't succeed.
