Hi Nancy,

Here is what I typically do:

1) Create a PDF of the document.

2) Create a new, 8.5 x 11 FrameMaker document.

3) Import the PDF pages directly onto the new document's pages, positioning
them appropriately on the page.

This is only practical if you don't have too many pages to import. When I
have a lot of pages, I will write a FrameScript script to automate it.

The "right" way to do it is to create a PDF of the document and use
"imposition" software designed to work with PDF files. Imposition is the
process that printers use to layout pages for correct printing and binding.
