Hi-I am using The Print Shop Pro Publisher 23 and I am trying to make a booklet/program with each page being approximately 8x10 (magazine size) that I will have professionally printed. When I use the booklet template it makes the pages approximately 5x7
ORIGINAL: elc626 ... Currently the booklet is made on the standard 8x12 size, how do I change it to 11x17 before saving it as a PDF.
Are you in Europe? I am in North America so I was assuming North American standard paper sizes. You described what I think is A4 size. If you are in Europe, we will need to work with European standard sizes and perhaps also in cm/mm.
Print Shop files always open in the size set by the default printer. So best thing is to change the defaults, otherwise every time you open your project, it will not be 11x17. When you have completed your project, you can reset your printer defaults.
Go to Control Panel | Printers and Faxes... change the default printer to PDF and then for that printer, change the printing preferences to tabloid, landscape. Your PDF printer may have different options - you may have to choose custom, then input the dimensions. (Some PDF drivers only take millimetres, so you'll have to make the necessary conversion.)
Since Print Shop files can't be converted to PDFs with embedded fonts, other programs are required. Discussion of other programs is outside the scope of this forum, so if you don't mind, we can continue this via e-mail.
