Hey guys,

I am doing my first A5 booklet. The idea is to print my A5 dimension pages from indesign and have 2 x A5 pages on 1 A4 page so I can fold it, so it's an A5 booklet.

 

BUT.... when I go to print the booklet, it's printing 4 x A6 on one side of the A4 page not 2 x A5 on onside of the A4 page.

What am I doing wrong?

My indesign document setup is set to A5, do I need to set it to A4?


Here is my page layers.

Export to PDF - then use the Print Booklet feature from there. https://helpx.adobe.com/ie/acrobat/using/ways-print-pdfs.html#print_a_booklet
