Printing off the PDF's

A neat tip for printing the PDF's into an A5 booklet. On most modern printers select 'Properties', select 'Page Setup'. In 'Printing Type' select 'Booklet Printing' and OK out of the Tabs. Select 'All the pages' and click 'Print' to produce your handy booklet (ready to fold and staple) containing the selected PDF for convenient bedtime reading. It saves75% of your paper too.
