Description hantsch 2010-04-13 09:00:14 UTC
When I create a folder in A5 size, I actually write four A4 pages and they are 
resized, rotated and combined correctly in the printout.

When I save the document as PDF to make it portable, this is lost. The PDF 
contains four A4 pages instead of the correctly arranged and reszed pages, so 
the recipient cannot re-print the folder by himself.

Will this be possible soon, or must I always do tricks inside cups to get this

Not a bug. But I agree, it would be a nice feature to have the possibility to
export alternatively
- For screen use (as currently possible)
- Printout ready for leporello fold

I believe this one is more or less a DUP of Issue 71013

You are right, this other issue is actually the same.

It would be really very valuable to be able to set several options during PDF

I get this ones in mind right now:
1.  PDF creation like now

2.  PDF is identical to the printout. In this case it might be better to move it
into the printing dialog, maybe as another selection, right below [_] Print to
file:   [_] Print to PDF-file

There I would search it, and everyone should automatically associate that all
other settings in this window will have influence in the result.

I believe it will be useful to merge discussion in Issue 71013.
Can you leave a comment in Issue 71013 concerning other applications with this
I doubt that such printer related information can be "simply" exported to PDF
documents and believe that other ways might be more promising. for example, oyu
might integrate several text documents (1 for each folder page)
1. into a global text document (for use on screen) and "normal" print
2. into a DRAWING page as OLE objects for print as folder (also for PDF export)

Unfortunately 2. currently will not work well because of Issue 82873 / Issue 97617
