What is the easiest way to create a 1/2 page flyer so that when it is printed out it will be on 1/2 a page? I know I could create TWO 1/2 pages, side by side on an 8 1/2 x 11 template, but I thought I'd check to see if there is a trick to printing out 1/2 page flyers.

    Menu > Print > Layout > Pages per Sheet: 2

    No. If you have a full size flyer it will reduce it to fit 2 up on the page.

     

    The process is not a simple reduction however, it fits within the printing margins of the paper, with a little fudge factor thrown in.

     

    Do a test with a simple box of known dimension to see what happens.

     

    I doubt your printer "doesn't do it". OSX is doing the smarts. With Layout selected, Pages per Sheet appears immediately under Layout. All the things you list are alternative options to Layout. The options are the same for my Inkjet, Laser and Adobe PDF 8.0.

    Ohhhhhhh, :( and here I worked for hours to make it 1/2 page and thought there was a way to duplicate it for the other side.

     

    I tried copy and paste, but it doesn't transfer the text boxes -- only images. But I asked that Q in another thread.

    As was explained you used a Word Processing template so you can't copy/dupe the text areas along with their inline images.

     

    Restart your design with a blank Layout template, they are listed in the sidebar of the Template Chooser.

     

    You will need to create Textboxes to put your text in, but then you will be able select all of the design, text & images, and copy/paste or option shift drag it to the second half of the page.

    Be better if you didn't run two posts on the same subject.

     

    All is explained in the other post.
