I’ve created a worship aid for my congregation but here’s my dilemma:
The document I’ve created is with 5.5x8.5 sheets (half US letter). If I print 2up so that I can make a small booklet (one page, front and back, folded in the middle) it looks correct however if I export using the same settings to a PDF, the margins are rendered totally different. (I created each sheet half size, but printing 2 up should be a standard letter page.)
Here’s the correct version if I print directly from within Dorico:
Here’s an incorrect rendering; all the settings are the same however this is the PDF version spit out by Dorico:
Note that the center margin is huge. This causes the document to be “wider” than in reality, so when you go to print from another computer, the document has to be forced down to 90% to fit on the page, even though if you print directly from within Dorico it is correct. The problem is, my office is in the church basement but I need to print hundreds of copies of this from the huge machine in the school. So far, I’m stumped since I can’t get the PDF to render correctly.
