Default Booklet printing problems

I have setup 2 booklets to print for a trip i am taking to Europe this
summer. On the screen and on print preview everything looks ok with page
breaks and the like where they need to be. When i come to print, all of that
goes away. I sometimes get 2 pages printed on one page, stuff that is on one
page on the screen, with plenty of room all around shows up on 2 pages. .. i
am including a link to a sample file... as you can see, the bus photo should
be on the page on the right. It is not a matter of flipping the pages over
because it does this even before i get a chance to turn the pages over to
print on the backside. This is just one example, but there are plenty of
other pages that do that as well. Not all the pages do it, but enough for it
to be a pain in the butt.

Anyone have any clue?

Thanks

Default Booklet printing problems

Although you don't say so, I suspect you may be using Word 2007, which has
had a sad tendency to exhibit this sort of problem. It is a known issue, but
at present the only workaround that has been found is to save the document
in Word 97-2003 format. You may want to try this with a copy of the
document.

I was able to get around this problem by exporting the document to pdf. Chances are you will need to adjust the page order and print settings of your pdf viewer to print the booklet correctly, but the format of each page should be correct.
