Publisher Problem

  dlguk 12:17 16 Apr 05

I am using MS Publisher to produce the cover for a small booklet. I only want the front and back pages (1 and 4) so I made sure there was nothing on 2 and 3 but every time I try to print one off my printer ‘spits’ out a blank page. I take it it is making an attempt at 2 and 3.
Any advice greatfuly recieved.
Thanks in advance

Have you tried using a horizontal format so that Pages 1 and 4 are alongside each other, rather than having four pages available?

Page 1 would be the right hand side and Page 4 the left on the screen, so that when you fold the page in half they are on the correct sides.

I take it that is under Format, if that is the case it is 'ghosted'. Could you instruct me further.

I would try File>Page setup and use a landscape (i.e. horizontal) template.

The View menu has a two-page spread option.

If you go to Publisher's Help pages, all these subjects are/should be described in detail.

Make sure the page you want to print is on screen and then select Current Page from the File, Print screen. Alternatively, select Pages but just enter 1 it will print pages 1 and 4.

Both systems work on mine using MS pub 2000 and an Epson printer.

pj123 I cannot view pages 1 and 4 and I tried what you said about 'pages', it only printed 4 which was not displayed at the time. I have tried the help menu but i would like this done this year. It's Pub 2003 and HP PSC 1215 (which should make no diference)
The 2 page spread is checked.
Poser eh??

When I created the cover to start with it didn't do what it is now. I use a template but really messed with it (could it be that I have done like in Word, just gone on to another page? naaa) Whatever I will get there, ty again

Sorry but I didn't say that. You don't need to view pages 1 and 4. Just have the page (1) on screen and then go to File, Print and select Current Page and OK. It will print pages 1 and 4.

It does it on mine no problem. I am doing a brochure for someone who wants 500 copies to start with.

It prints out page one only, maybe a call to HP would be an idea?

thank you for your help
