Print the pages according to the third column, then put them in order so that that the largest numbered page on the left side is on top (e.g. first the whole-size page with half-size pages 10 and 11, then the whole-size page with half-size 8 and 13, then the whole-size page with half-size pages 6 and 15, etc). It might already be this way. Turn them around so the blank side is facing you, then do all of the past steps again but with the numbers from the fourth column in the Pages box

    thanks, helpful info

  1. What do you do if there is no size half-letter? I’ve tried inputting a Postscript custom size of 8.5″ x 5.5″ but it still prints out screwy.
