Johan Rooryk asks whether there is a way to print 2 pages of text
(reduced) on a single page. There is a rather simple way to do this
using WordPerfect, and I'm sure the method could be carried over to
other wordprocessors as well.

The basic idea is that you print your text in landscape orientation
(the paper turned "sideways") in a small typeface using newspaper
column formatting. In WordPerfect this is done as follows:

1. select paper size (Shf-F8) - instead of 8.5" by 11" select 11" by 8.5"
2. select a small typeface - I find that 9 point works well
3. define columns (Alt-F7) - the default setting with wide paper gives you
	1" margins all around
4. turn columns on

The text will go down the left side of the page, and then down the right
side before going on to the next page.

Johan Rooryck asked in 3.258 if there exists a software tool to
print manuscript "two-up", i.e., in reduced size, two pages
side-by-side on standard paper. On our network of PCs we use
4PRINT(tm), which does what he asks and much more. It describes
itself as "The HP LaserJet/DeskJet Landscape Printing Program".
The "4" in the name refers to the option of printing pages 1+2,
5+6, 9+10... side-by-side, then turning the pages over to get
3+4, 7+8, 11+12... on the backs of the appropriate sheets: four
pages of text on one sheet of paper. We don't use that option,
but we do use "two-up" and wide landscape printing quite a bit.
To judge by the on-line help message, the total range of options
is quite impressive. The source is

 Korenthal Associates, Inc.
 Department 4PR-REG405
 230 West 13th St.
 New York, N.Y. 10011

The software is available as shareware; the manual, and
registered ownership, come for a reasonable fee. They can be
reached at 1-800-KA-PROGS (orders only) or 1-212-242-1790; fax
1-212-242-2599.

I have no connection with Korenthal Associates whatsoever except
as a user of their 4PRINT program.

Message 3: printing a handout in WP

Subject: printing a handout in WP


A recent post asked about printing out a handout so that you get two
text pages on a single piece of paper, i.e.

	--------------------------------------------
	|			|		 |
	|			|		 |
	|			|		 | 8 & 1/2
	|			|		 |
	|			|		 |
	|			|		 |
	| p.1		|		 |
	|			|	2	 |
	--------------------------------------------
			 11 "

Here's how to do this in WordPerfect.

1.)	Go to the Format menu (Shift-F8)
2.)	Select Page
3.)	Select Paper Size
4.)	Select Add
5.)	Select Labels -- from the menu that you get, you need to do two things:
	a.) select Size, and pick Standard Landscape, hit return
	b.) select Labels, and pick Yes -- you get another menu.
	c.) select number, and enter 2 for the number of columns and
	 1 for the number of rows.
6.) 	Exit till you're back at the Paper Size menu. You ought to
	have a new paper size defined, called Labels-Wide.

Now to print the handout, you just need to select this paper size.

This works well on my HP Laserjet -- I suppose that some printers may
not be able to print sideways.

Note that you don't have to do all this every time you want a handout. You
just need to define it once, and after that you merely select it from the
menu.

To Johan Rooryck: Yes. I use DesignStudio aka Ready,Set,Go! on the Mac
and print two pages sideways up to the limits allowed by the printer. 9pt
is quite legible even with regular 300dpi laser printers and the Kinko's
near my house has the 600dpi Apple Laser printer (IIg ?) which is remarkably
clear. If you want to print both sides of the paper, fold it up like a
pamphlet and put a staple into the middle, the only problem is doing the
'math' to get the correct ordering for the pages! No sweat! --Frank B.
