  • If the document contains pages with different original sizes, page breaks may occur.

  • By combining the booklet printing and combine printing functions, you can print multiple pages onto a single sheet and bind them to form a booklet. For details about combine printing, see Combining Multiple Pages into Single Page.

  • If you specify a custom size paper for the booklet printing function using the PostScript 3 printer driver and the length of the short edge of the paper is equal to or shorter than half the length of the long edge of the paper, the job will be canceled.
