I have a 100 pages text file in Latex, using A5 paper landscape, memoir template. Now I want to print it on A4 paper (two A5 per side). To do it, I use the command bellow:

\pgfpagesuselayout{2 on 1}[a4paper]

The command works fine, and fits page 1(A5) and 2(A5) on the A4 front and page 3(A5) and 4(A5) in the A4 page cover. I need to change the order: I want the A4 front page with pages 1 and 3 (A5 odd pages), and the A4 cover with pages 2 and 4 (a5 even pages). How can I do it?

Here is the Code Example:

\pgfpagesuselayout{2 on 1}[a4paper]

The result is a two page document:

I need a two page document, but I need the odd A5 pages in a page, and the even A5 pages in other page:

Thanks a lot.

  • Welcome! Code for a small document will make it more likely you'll get help than providing a mere code fragment. Have you checked the manual? I'd use pdfpages for this, which makes this kind of manipulation easy. (Or post-process the document.) – cfr Sep 16 '17 at 3:24

  • As I say, pdfpages or a post-processing option are your best bets, I think. With pdfpages, you use two .tex files and then it is straightforward. – cfr Sep 17 '17 at 18:56
