I have a latex prepared doublesided pdf, it has 130 pages. I just want a result where I can cut the A4 paper into 4 parts and get 4 separate a6 books. No need to set frames, just cut the paper in each half.
I now there are many instructions on how to insert certain size page into a pdf of other size, but none gives instructions on how to place the same document multiplied by four and with this x4 page order on each page.
So, the first A4 page should be seen with 4 times the first a6 page, and the second page the same, and so on.
1st page (with 4 a6 sized print)
2nd page (with 4 a6 sized print)
psbookutility that works on PostScript files (which you could produce with
dvips). Another one is
cpdfthat works on PDF files. However, I don't have a solution ready.
cpdfby e-mail. Even when I couldn't implement the full command John Whitington gave me this answer, which may be helpful to others: If you don't need to preserve PDF elements like hyperlinks, and it's just for printing, one option is to convert to PostScript, and then use psnup, and convert back to PDF.
