  1. Thanks, just what I needed. I also use

    \pgfpageslogicalpageoptions{1}{border code=\pgfusepath{stroke}}

    to add border around the pages. If you put 2 on 1, repeat this line with …{2}… too.

    Thanks for very nice solution. I print my thesis in A4 to A5 (book) but the “landscape” option does work. How can i solve this problem? very appreciated.

    Thanks for quick response. I try to print my thesis as a book. The pdf file now in A4 but i want to print two A5 pages on one A4 page.

    1. with the command:

    \usepackage{pgfpages}
    \pgfpagesuselayout{2 on 1}[a4paper,border shrink=5mm]
    \nofiles

    It works but the A4 page in portrait not landscape

    2. With your recommend i combine with another in separated tex file as:

    \documentclass{article}
    \usepackage[pdftex]{color,graphicx,epsfig}
    \usepackage[a4paper]{geometry}% http://ctan.org/pkg/geometry
    \usepackage[final]{pdfpages}% http://ctan.org/pkg/pdfpages
    \begin{document}
    \includepdf[pages=-,nup=1x2,landscape,signature=48]{Main}%
    \end{document}

    It announces 3 errors and a pdf file is created but i can not open it.

    Thanks you very much for your kind help.

    • Hi namvan,

      The following code works for me.

      \documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{article}
      \usepackage{pdfpages}
      \begin{document}
      \includepdf[landscape, nup=1x2, pages=-]{Main}
      \end{document}

      However, I’m using a very simple document.

      \documentclass[11pt]{article}
      \usepackage{blindtext}
      \begin{document}
      \blinddocument
      \end{document}

      Do you really need to load the epsfig package? How about converting eps to pdf?
      What do the errors say?

      Best, Tom.
