Cut lines for 2-up A5 doc on A4 paper?

Post by rjbull »

Please bear with me, I'm only an occasional user of Atlantis...

I have a short text that fits comfortably on A5 paper, but I need several copies. Most printers have A4 paper, so I can print 2-up. Is there any way of adding fiducial marks, both on-screen and on the paper, to show the centre line for cutting the A4 neatly into two A5? A bit like the "cut lines" for booklet printing, which I haven't used but saw in Help?

Thanks...

Uh, supplementary question.

To do the printing as described, I have to bring up the Print dialog, set Number of copies, Pages per sheet, and Actual paper size. If I go back to editing, then try printing again, they have all reverted to default. Is there a way to associate a particular printer set-up with a given document?

Thanks.

Possible workaround: set your document page to A4 landscape, copy/paste two lots of your text and divide it into two columns, and in the column dialogue box tick the "Line between" option. This'll put a line midway down the page that you can cut along once printed.
