Change the page size in FM to 8.5 x 5.5. PDF the document. I believe there's a way when printing PDFs to print pages two-up on a sheet.

Best Regards,

Hi, all.

I'm using FM 10 on a Windows 7 system

I'm experimenting with a new format: 8.5 w x 5.5 h pages, landscape
orientation, spiral bound.

It's a flip book, so when a 2-page spread is open, you're basically
looking at a 8.5 x 11" letter page with a spiral binding horizontally
across the middle of it. It will be used outdoors, so it will be
printed on some kind of card stock.

So far, I've created the pages in FrameMaker (we'll be moving to
InDesign in the new year). I'd like to print out some draft copies
withe the correct double-sided page layout so I can staple the collated
pages and have a good mockup of the final document.

Is there any easier way to do this than knocking myself out manually
rotating page text columns?

All suggestions gratefully received.
