I'm trying out self-publishing and I'm a bit confused on how to print the pages of my book. The approximate size of the pages of my book is
4.25in x 5.5in. That's roughly 1/4th of a
8.5in x 11in in standard paper. When I print my file from a PDF, I print the odd pages first all on one sheet to save paper, and then flip the pages over to print the even pages. (This is ignoring the cover page and the end page) To visualize: an
8.5in x 11in piece of paper portrait style. Page 1 is on the top left, Page 3 is on the top right, Page 5 is on the bottom left, Page 7 is on the bottom right.
When I flip it over to print, the pages are not arranged correctly e.g., Page number 4 is on the back of page number 1, page number 2 is on the back of page 3, 8 on page 5, 6 on page 7, etc.
Is there any way to remedy this problem besides printing each individual page on one sheet, rather than 4 on one? Thanks.
Additional Details: I'm using Microsoft Word and then exporting it as a PDF. I'm running Windows 7. On the print options, I'm using a borderless print with an option that prints 4 pages per sheet, and I set it to either only odd pages or even pages.
