OS X :: Printing PDF In Landscape Format With Two Pages Per Sheet
Jul 19, 2009
I'm trying to print a PDF in landscape format with 2 pages per sheet. Which I can do no problem in the print settings of Preview. The problem is controlling which order the sheets print in. As far as I can see, none of the print options actually change anything. I can change the order, select reverse layout, etc etc, and it always prints out the same, incorrect way. What am I doing wrong?
When printing from an email or other web-based source, I hit Cmd P and the print dialogue comes up with the landscape configuration as default. How do I get it to come up with the portrait configuration as default?
How the hell do I print in landscape in Apple Preview.
I go to layout tab in the print menubox, and it has these 4 fancy diagrams, but none of them seem to mean landscape. Why isn't there a simple "Print landscape"/"Print portrait" button. At times like these I want to stick a rusty pole up Steve Jobs' bottom. Come back Microsoft - all is forgiven.
And also, why, once I click on "preview" (within the print menubox) to see what my settings look like - and I see it hasn't worked - I then have to reinput all of my settings again?
Is there a way to set part of the document to landscape? In Word I would select the section and it allowed the option of setting the selected section to landscape. I don't see that option Pages. I was playing around with the different section breaks and margins, but couldn't figure out how to make it work. I want some tables in landscape and the rest of the document in portrait. This document will be going back and forth from Word on a PC to me. I have not had any problems so far, but I have only had my mac for a month.
The standard Mac Print - Layout - Pages per Sheet drop down offers 1,2,4,6,9 & 16 pages per sheet. Why is there no 8 pages per sheet option? This seems a bizarre omission. In a world of ISO 'A' paper sizes, it is easy to scale any binary power number of sheets onto, say, A4 for printing. 1,2,4 and 16 are offered - what has Apple got against 8? Does anyone know if/how I might add 8 as an option?
I've been disappointed that the preview in the Leopard print dialog does not update if you select to have multiple pages per sheet. I often do this to conserve paper when I'm printing lecture notes. With Leopard, I'm often doing this blind and get things out of order. Has anyone got this to work? I seem to think that one of programs--either preview or Acrobat--provided this functionality in Tiger.
As the title says, I just can't get Preview.app to print a 33 page PDF using 2 pages per sheet in the correct order. It will print two pages per sheet of paper, but page 1 will come on the right, 2 on the left, 3 on the right, etc. I tried every possible combination in the "Layout" menu to no avail.
I want to copy formulas only from a previous worksheet to create a new worksheet. I am using this to do monthly accounts for 2012. Everytime I cut and paste the formula, it links it to where I copied it fror. I am worrried about saving it as I do not want to make any changes to the previous months. The person who created the worksheet is not available to do this for me.
How do I go about print specific pages from a file/PDF? Say I want to print random pages like page 5, 9, 14 that do not go in order so the print X to X pages doesn't work for me. Any way to do that without having to send the pages for printing individually?
Not well versed with wirless printing, I have attempted to print a document with my iPhone 4 to my Brother Printer. The printer is confirgured for wireless printing with my iMac, and prints documents just fine with my iMac. I am not sure if I need an app to print with the iPhone 4, or my iPad 2, for that fact.
I have a MacBook Pro, operating system Maverick 10.9.3 and cannot print a Pages template form in color on my HP 8600 printer. The border of the document is in color, but prints grey. Is there a glitch between Pages and Maverick, Pages and the printer or what?

Just updated to lion and have found that I can no longer select or unselect the collate option when printing from preview. The collate select button is available when printing from adobe reader or word, but it is nowhere to be found under any of the preview print options since the update. Has it been moved to some super secret location?
I included the screen shots of adobe reader and preview print windows. The collate selection button in preview used to be located to the right of the # of copies window.
I have a Canon MP830 all-in-one unit. When connected to a Windows 2000 PC or when connected to a MacOS X 10.4 machine, it worked fine. Under 10.5 Leopard and now 10.6 Snow Leopard, there is a long delay between pages when printing even simple text documents. The delay can be anywhere from 20 seconds to more than a minute. Scanning works just fine, the problem is only with printing. Unit is connected via USB, and I've tried it in different ports just in case of a bad port. I have tried both Canon's own printer drivers and the Apple drivers from 10.6 Snow Leopard. I have a 2006 Mac Pro 4x2.66 GHz with 5GB of RAM. It's the same machine which ran 10.4 Tiger without this issue, and I'm currently on 10.6.2.
When attempting to print a .pdf file on an HP 2100 located at 192.168.1.120 on our LAN, Mac iMac OSX 10.5 produces only the following header and then _m a n y_ pages of blank paper -- %!PS-Adobe-3.0%APL_DSC_Encoding: UTF8 %APLroducer: (Version 10.5.4 (Build 9E17) This printer works just fine printing .pdf files from the Dell XP also located on the same LAN.
I set it as a .pdf, but its a .pages extension file, bc I couldn't attach as a .pages file. This is my term paper for this marking period and a conversion to a .doc file would help immensely. I am at my school and can't download any programs to convert.
when I try to import a table from a website into the latest version of Pages, the table format isn't kept but instead it is spaced out over 4 or 5 pages. How can I make Pages keep the table format and not switch it to pure text?
I know how to insert the date and time, but I need it to automatically put it in the format of Month/Date/Year (ie August 3, 2009). When your insert the date and time in Pages, it automatically puts it in the format of Day/Month/Date/Year (ie Monday, August 3, 2009). I know if you right click on it and select "Edit Date and Time" you can adjust the format, but I need it to automatically put it in the format I want (Month/Date/Year) when I select "Insert Date and Time."
I have recently started using Pages in iwork over Office, I like the easy formatting and usability of Pages. But I have to send all these recently create pages doc in a word format to someone and so I did the Save as Word option.When I opened the Word file in Word all the text formatting went all over the place, it looked like it put extra tabs in there and there is a split down the middle of the text like it has put it in two columns.
Is there any way to ensure that when I create my pages document that the formatting is agreeable with word.
I work a lot in Excel for Mac and I have noticed an annoying feature that I can't seem to change. No matter how many times I save a document in "landscape" it keeps on reverting back to "portrait" every time I open it. I have tried to default to landscape but it has not worked.
I can't change FaceTime to Landscape. Video, Use Landscape is greyed out. Do I need to be on an active call to make the change or is there some other way to change to Landscape? I'm using a MacBook Pro with Lion 10.7.2

This new version of iTunes (Mac OS X) creates a folder by the name of "Automatically Add to iTunes" on my Desktop (which is also the Music/Download folder by default). No idea what it's supposed to be good for, but no matter how much I trash it to stop cluttering the landscape, it gets re-created at every launch.
QUICK WORKAROUND: Using FileXaminer (or similar utility), make it invisible.
