Earlier, we posted a video on making a booklet in Word 2007.
Now, let's take a look at Word 2010.
In the document that you want to print as a booklet, click the Page Layout tab and then click the Page Setup Dialog Box Launcher.
In the dialog box, in the Multiple pages list, click Book fold.
If you want to print separate signatures that can later be bound into one book, click the number of pages that you want in each signature in the Sheets per booklet list.Adjust the margins and, if you want, specify a margin for the gutter (so that your words don't get swallowed by the binding in the middle of a thick book).Click OK.If you want to have odd and even headers or footers--for example, if you want the page number on the outside corner of every page--double-click in the header or footer, and then click the Different Odd & Even Pages check box in the Options group.
Now you'll add those page numbers or headers and footers separately--one for the odd pages and one for the even pages. If you've already added a page number or a header or footer, you'll need to add it again on an even page.If your booklet includes sections that aren't linked, select the Different Odd and Even Pages check box and add the page number, header, or footer for each section in your booklet.Now, click the File tab, and then click Print. If your printer supports double-sided printing, click the Print on Both Sides option that has the correct paper-flipping edge--quite likely the short edge.
If your printer supports manual duplex printing, click Manually Print on Both Sides, and then make sure that you flip the pages the right way (again, probably on the short edge).

I have tried creating new documents and still the same result. I have also tried a few different positioning options for the inserted items (behind text, in line with text etc) I have also tried the 'book layout' option in the Advanced Layout tab accessed through Text Wrapping, More Layout Options from the right mouse click.......... I also suspect that the inserted photos etc have brought some formatting 'baggage' with them, but I don't know, firstly, how to see what the problem is, and secondly, how to correct the problem.
Just wondering if anyone has been able to find a solution to my booklet printing problem? I would really like to resolve this issue and print some booklets!
I wish I had an answer for you--days ago. We've been trying to figure out what could make it look okay in Print Preview but not in the printout. And without seeing the actual files, it's hard to second guess.
This morning I found one setting that--in the event it's checked--could be the problem. In Word Options, on the Advanced tab (for Word 2007 and Word 2010), scroll down to Print and make sure that the Scale content for A4 or 8.5 x 11" paper sizes check box is not checked. It seems like a long shot--but this is a setting that affects only the printout.
Have you tried posting your question on answers.microsoft.com?
Yes, the scaling option under the advanced tab of word options was checked, but unfortunately un-checking this option was not enough to fix the problem. Thanks for trying. I will try answers.microsoft.com as you suggested and see if I can find a solution there. :)
I regularly made booklets with Office 2003. Since changing to Office 2010 I find it impossible - I make A4 pages, then try to make an A5 booklet, with 2 pages per sheet (so that the print is halved in size - if I use 'book fold' it halves the page content, with the original size print). Then with double-sided printing I find the page order comes out incorrectly however I try to follow the instructions, ie only odd number pages come out successively, with the even numbers quite separate. Do you recognise this problem?
Following up my previous blog: I have now accidentally found a solution to my booklet page numbering problem. If I instruct 'printer properties' to print double-sided with 2 pages per sheet, left-hand binding , but leave the 'print setup' on single-sided, one page per sheet, it prints the page order correctly - but this shouldn't be right! Comments?
Word crashed for me, too. Here's what helped (using Brother HL-2040):
1. Page Setup
Auto Select by Printer in both left and right drop-down lists
Paper Source: Auto Select by Printer (in drop-down list)
When I did Step 1 only, Word consistently crashed when I tried to print Manually on Both Sides. Doing Step 2 prevented the crashing.
My problem is with margins. I have set on..5 all around, book fold, landscape and the print preview looks fine, but it actually prints by squeezing the print to the left and leaving a 1 inch margin on the right of each page. Can't seem to find a solution. Any ideas?
Is it on the right of each page, or each piece of paper, or is it in the center? (I'm wondering whether extra gutter space is set.)
Acomin - I seem to be having pretty much the same problem. I'm trying to make an A6 booklet. My gutter is at 0cm (I am aware of the potential problem with this). Margins are at 0.43. It all looks lovely when on the screen but when I print it out I too get margins all the way round of about an inch. I am having to type in small font text to fit, even though there is loads of space when printed.
Any help appreciated.
Are you able to print other documents with narrower margins? I just want to confirm that this isn't a printer issue (although, if it were, I'd expect the text to just be cut off, unless Shrink to Fit is selected).
Printing other documents is fine. When I am editing my document the whole page is taken up but when I print I have the spare inch all the way round that doesn't manifiest itself until it's printed. Maybe I should add that I'm printing this out on A4 (no A5 paper to hand to then fold in half for A6). Is that the problem? I will be taking it to a printers to get 150 copies when ready.
The only thing I can think of right now is that the check box Scale content for A4 or 8 1/2 x 11" paper sizes (Word Options, Advanced tab, scroll down to the Print section) might be cleared and selecting it might help. Your other best option is to post your question at answers.microsoft.com. It's possible someone else has encountered this issue.
