Default Printing A5/A6 Greeting Cards

I have recently installed Publisher 2007. Prior to this I was printing
greeting cards on A5 card which I then folded in half to A6 for the finished
product.

It was soooo easy on Publisher 2003 but can I find a way to do it now? Not
a chance and serious frustration has set in! I am still using exactly the
same printer HP Photosmart C4280.

Help, please, in 'idiot-proof' langage for this ageing non-techno.

Many thanks.

Did you print one card per A5 page with Publisher 2003? If you did then I assume
you have this custom size in your printer.
When you do a page setup, use the advanced on the right. Select booklet if your
card is booklet-like.

Thanks for your reply, Mary. Yes, I printed one card per A5 page in
Publisher 2003.

Just done Page Set-up as suggested. Shows booklet and correct paper size.
But when I go to print, preview looks good, it's shown as booklet side fold;
also good!
But when I go to 'Print', paper size is shown as A4. When I change to A5,
preview orientation goes crazy!

Any other ideas, please.

Thanks.

David

When you installed 2007, did you install the service packs and the hotfix? The
hotfix isn't necessary for all uses. The service pack did address small
publications.
I know early on I had similar problems, but the service pack solved it.
I also know when you go to print after you create your card, you might have to
setup the print preferences again. I agree 2003 was so much easier to work with.

Try setting the default paper size in the printer to A5, so that when
the 'print dialog' wakes up its at A5 already?

Many thanks for all your replies. I have tried every combination of every
possibility without success.

It is so frustrating because even I (!) found it so easy to print on A5
cards. Publisher 2007 has beaten me, I'm afraid!
