# Using the booklet package and the geometry package together

When I use the booklet package alone, it works just fine and produces the output I expect. However, when I combine it with the geometry package, it produces really bad output.

Here's my MWE. First, I comment out the geometry package:

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
%%\usepackage[landscape]{geometry}
\usepackage[print]{booklet}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\setpdftargetpages
\begin{document}
\lipsum[1]
\newpage
\lipsum[2]
\newpage
\lipsum[2]
\end{document}


which gives me the following output. Notice the results are in portrait format - I want landscape:

Here are results from the same file with the geometry line uncommented. The orientation is in landscape format, but the margins are all wrong. Notice how the text clips on the first page and overlaps on the second:

How can I make the geometry package work with the booklet package? I am using TeXLive 2012, by the way.

p.s. My apologies for the unscaled images.

 Please could you explain what do you want to do? Which document is landscape, the original or the booklet? If you read booklet manual (with command texdoc booklet or here) you will find landscape option for landscape documents. Why do you need geometry? – Ignasi Aug 8 '12 at 7:59 I have a more complicated document with specific margins that I need geometry for. – Justin Bailey Aug 8 '12 at 16:05 @Ignasi In response to your first question - the original document is in portrait orientation. I would like to produce a document in landscape orientation, with two portrait pages per sheet. – Justin Bailey Aug 8 '12 at 17:00 I don't know what's the problem between geometry and booklet, but as an alternative solution you could forget booklet and use geometry to produce your main document and after that, use pdfpages to construct your booklet version. Look at: booklet-with-a-specific-page-order-rule, booklets-in-memoir-class – Ignasi Aug 9 '12 at 10:24 If you don't want to make two documents, you could also use pgfpages instead of booklet.
