“pdfpages” in the first paragraph is a typo?

• Thanks Liam! Best, Tom.

2. 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.

• Hey, thanks for the addendum. Tom.

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.

• Hi! Are you trying to print a booklet? If so, see here for a solution. If not, please provide a minimal working example.

Thanks, Tom.

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.

Hi, how do you set the dimensions for the spread if a3. a4, a5 don’t do the job ?

Hi Unai,

Thanks for your question. Take a look at the geometry package. It provides functionality to change the page size and layout.

Best, Tom
