I am very new to CorelDraw. I have dabbled a bit in it and I think I can handle it given small guidance. I have written a 280 pdf book. When I print the whole book, it becomes difficult to read pages farther from the middle. A solution is to convert the book into booklets, print them and arrange the individual booklets beside each other to form a book. I want at tutorial that explains thoroughly how to do that. I have read a bit on something called Printer Spreads and Reader Spreads but I don't know how to go about doing this. Thanks in advance.
It sounds like you are having a problem with 'shingling' on a stapled booklet.
To make several 40 page books, go to print preview, choose 'booklet' from the bottom dropdown, then on the right side, type in 40 where I have 8. That will print booklets in 40 page groupings.
HOWEVER.How are you printing this? If you are sending it to a printer your self, at work or home, have you tried just sending page 1-40, then pages 41-80? and so on?
Also, ignore readers spreads. They are only for looking at what you're going to produce digitally to see if it lines up how you want.
I'm printing it home. I haven't tried that yet. Thanks
