Ok, here's a question that is quite related to magic ebooks:

I have an ebook that is formatted as 5.5 x 8.5 so that two of the ebook pages logically would fit on one 8.5 x 11 page set up as landscape. The problem is that I odn't know how to combine the pages on the ebook so that both will print on one piece of paper. I can NOT use the "2-pages per sheet" thing because that will reduce the size of the image on each page.

Any one know how to do this?

Hi alym,
I am unsure what units of measurement you speak of when you define sizes 5.5 x 8.5....
If the paper on which you print measures 11 x 8.5 then there is no room for margins as defined as default on the printer....

you have 3 options:
1) you can either output on larger size paper, then trim
2) or try to cancel the printer margins
3) or, as you say, reduce the output size to fit the paper

hope this helps - wulfie

I think wulfie's right, you probably need to reduce the margins as much as you can in the printer set up.

As Jonescii noted, the page margins are gonna mess you up unless you are VERY careful and have a printer which can handle the full 8x11 image area.
