# How to put a double-sided B5 document on A4 paper for duplex printing?

I have a ClassicThesis B5 document:

\documentclass[
b5paper,
twoside,
openright,
titlepage,
numbers=noenddot,
footinclude,
cleardoublepage=empty,
BCOR=5mm,
fontsize=10pt,
abstract=on,
]{scrreprt}


I want to duplex-print it on the standard A4 paper and then crop. How do I place pages on A4 in such a way? Both geometry and crop fail to produce right paper size, put crop marks in correct places or just mess up with margins and layout.

Maybe, pdfpages can "print" to the corner of A4 and add crop marks?

• Please edit your question so that it includes a complete example code that reproduces the problem. As it stands, it may be difficult for anyone to help you. – Ian Thompson Jan 10 '19 at 21:15

To print double-sided B5 on two sides of A4 for later cropping I used pdfpages:
\documentclass[twoside,a4paper]{article}
