I’ve really wanted to show some examples of the cool stuff I can create in Affinity Publisher, but a lot of the things I’ve been doing are covered elsewhere on YouTube. I hate creating a “me too!” situation, so I’ve not said a lot about this amazing publishing tool. But now I discovered Affinity Publisher’s sweet printing options, in particular the inclusion of N-Up printing.
N-Up printing allows a user to pin up a number of copies of the same document on to a single sheet of paper. I typically need this when I’m creating a handout I only want to have use half a page of US letter paper. I created my layout on a 5.5 in x 8.5 in canvas, and then duplicate that single page so I can run it through my imposition software 1 and get my 2-Up sheet. This works fine, except when I have to make edits I end up having to do it twice. This can get tedious 2. It turns out that Affinity publisher allows me to get to a 2-Up export using just one page in my document. Check out the video below to see how this works.
