Description austin987 2007-06-06 19:58:29 UTC
I frequently use Microsoft publisher to design and print postcards that we
receive from clients. We are trying to move to Open Office in our systems, and
this is one feature that is preventing this. In publisher, it is possible to
layout multiple pages per sheet, under the printing options dialog.

The only option I found is an option of the printer and not of the office.
Please tell me where I can find the option you mentioned to reproduce the
missing feature.

I've attached screenshots of that dialog in CorelDraw12. It has a lot of such
settings. This dialog belongs to CorelDraw12 not to my printer.
Comment 4 christian.guenther 2007-06-08 16:22:51 UTC
Is this a dialog in the kind you mean?
Because I looked for a similar dialog in the MS Publisher and I can't find one.
If you mean another dialog please tell me where I can find the dialog and/or
send me a screenshot.
Comment 5 christian.guenther 2007-06-08 17:50:40 UTC
I think I found the dialogs you mean. One part is in the papeer settings and one
in the print dialog.
You are right. this is an enhancement.

as a work around you can use our Business Card Dialog -> File / New / Business Cards
or you can select 'Tile pages' in the Options of the printer Dialog. With 'Tile
pages OOo prints the page as often as it fits on the sheet.

Publisher screenshots
Comment 7 austin987 2007-06-12 21:52:20 UTC
I attached the screenshots from publisher (I don't speak german, though they do
look similar).

The top screenshot shows the options available from File, Page Setup. The second
screenshot shows the options available when you press "Change copies per sheet"
in the prior menu, or under the print dialog.

The second screenshot is the feature that I'm speaking of. By making a postcard
(say 5.5" x 4.25") in publisher, I can then go into the change copies per sheet,
remove any margins, and have it laid out 2 by 2.

Since OOo 3.3 the print dialog has a feature to print multiple pages on one. Please have a look whether that fits your needs.
