Layout Page Arrangements for Printing/Exporting
Dorico provides several page arrangements that you can use for printing/exporting your layouts.
In the Job Type section, you can specify how you want the layouts to be printed/exported. On the Job Type pop-up menu, the following job types are available:
Prints one page on each sheet of paper.
Prints two pages side-by-side on each sheet of paper, with odd-numbered pages on the right-hand side and even-numbered pages on the left-hand side.
Prints two pages side-by-side on each sheet of paper. The first page in the range is printed on the left-hand side of the first sheet of paper.
Prints two pages on each sheet of paper according to imposition requirements. This means that if the paper is folded, the pages are laid out like a book.Note
Booklets can only be printed using the complete range of pages. You cannot define any page ranges.
Depending on the job type that you choose, Dorico switches the orientation for you. The changed orientation is immediately displayed in the music area. If this is not what you want, you can override the orientation in the Page Setup section.
All of the job types allow printing either onto a single side of each sheet of paper or on both sides of the paper.
It is usual to print booklets, spreads, and 2-up onto paper in landscape orientation. Printing one page to each sheet should typically use portrait orientation, unless the layout itself uses landscape orientation.
In the Job Type section, you can specify a range of pages to be printed/exported. You have the following options:
- All Pages
Allows you to print/export all pages of the selected layouts.
- Page Range
Allows you to set a range of pages to be printed.
