Some of the class have been having problems printing pdfs of my lectures if they have more than one slide per page. The following post will walk you through a solution to the problem.
If you are printing pdfs of lecture slides, at say 6 slides per page, on a Windows machine and they keep printing like this (or some variation of this):
Slides in the wrong order
Slides in the correct order
Then there is a problem with the way you have set up printing, that is, you have 'Auto rotate and scale' on (i.e. ticked).
To solve the problem follow these steps:
- In the print dialog, make sure that 'Auto rotate and scale' is turned off (i.e. not ticked)
Printer dialog screen
- Click on Properties.
Set the number of pages to print per page
- Select (click) the 'Finishing' tab, and set the number of pages you want to print per page.
- Set page orientation.
- Click on OK to close the properties window.
- Click on OK in the print dialog window to close it and to print the document.
