 +====== Booklet Printing a PDF File ======
  
 +This document describes how to print booklets from letter size documents exported as PDF files. ​ Such as those files created with the "Print to File" option.
 +
 +This process works on my HP LaserJet 1000.  Other printers may work differently,​ depending on what order the pages are in when they exit the printer. ​ You will probably want to babysit the printer to make sure that the pages stay in the correct order, especially when you print the back sides.
 +
 +===== Printing the Front Sides =====
 +
 +  - Export the document to PDF. 
 +  - Select File, Print. ​
 +  - Make sure "​Subset"​ is "All pages in range"​. ​
 +  - Make sure "​Reverse Pages" is not checked.
 +  - Change "Page Scaling"​ to "​Booklet Printing"​. ​
 +  - Change "​Booklet subset"​ to "Front side only"​. ​
 +  - Click "​OK"​ to print the front sides. ​
 +
 +===== Printing the Back Sides =====
 +
 +  - Put the pages back into the tray, leaving them in the same order (blank side up, top to the left). ​
 +  - Select File, Print. ​
 +  - "Page Scaling"​ should still be set to "​Booklet Printing"​. ​
 +  - Change "​Booklet subset"​ to "Back side only"​. ​
 +  - Mark the "​Reverse pages" check-box. ​
 +  - Press "​OK"​ to print the back sides.
