Print Two Pages Per Sheet - Solution

I am posting this solution to help anyone trying to print two report pages on each sheet of paper.

These instructions are for printing two pages (8.5 x 5.5 inch each) on a letter size (8.5 x 11 inch) sheet of paper. They can also be modified to four pages per sheet, 8 pages per sheet, etc. and can also be used for other page and sheet sizes.


From the FastReport designer, click on the Page Setup button to set the paper size to Custom (to fit 2 pages per letter size (8.5 x 11) sheet, set the width to 8.5 in and the height to 5.5 in.


In the Properties window, highlight the Report option at the top of the object list, and make the following changes under the PrintSettings section:

PagesOnSheet = Two (The options are One, Two, Four and Eight.)
PrintMode = Scale
PrintOnSheetHeight = 280 (This is 11 inches converted to millimeters.)
PrintOnSheetWidth = 215 (This is 8.5 inches converted to millimeters.)


Preview the report and click on the Print button which will show the following dialog box:


Click on the More options button and if everything was set up correctly the settings should appear as follows. Check to verify that Print mode is Scale, Print on sheet is Letter, and Pages on sheet is 2 pages.


When you print the report it should now preview as single pages but will print two pages per sheet.

Hopefully this will help someone who needs it. Good luck from sunny Barbados!

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
