Default printing two half sheet docs on one Letter page

I want to make a template for a restaurant to print a desert menu. The size
of the sheet is 5.5" wide by 8.5" high.... two portrait pages on one
landscape Letter. I will print landscape and then cut them by hand to
make two small menus from each letter sheet.

First off is it possible to design the half sheet menu and lay it on the
page once and have Word copy twice on to the page? How is this done? I
don't know what concepts to read about in the Help menu.

Thanks,

STeveK

If you have Word 2000 or above, use the "2 pages per sheet" option in Page
Setup (not the one in the Print dialog). You can either create the document
on page 1 and copy/paste it to page 2 or just choose to print specific pages
1,1 to print page 1 twice.

Thank you. That is exactly what I was looking for and has solved the
problem.

1,1 is the solution in the Print window.

Just curious: What is the syntax rule that controls that? The first 1 is
page one but why does the second 1, seperated by a comma mean put two page
1's on one page?

Thanks,
SteveK

And if you don't, check your printer preferences carefully. For
example, my Brother printer can print pages 1-up or 2-up or 4-up
regardless of the application.

Default printing two half sheet docs on one Letter page

When you print two pages per sheet (using either the Page Setup option or
the Print option), Word needs to know what two pages you want to print. If
you're printing a document that has at least two pages, that's easy: it
prints however many pages you have, two to a sheet. If you have only one
page, you have to print it twice.
