I want to print multiple pages to a single sheet of paper (like you can with postscript printers - e.g. 2 pages of data on a single sheet side by side). However I am running unders win95, I have an HP LaserJet III without any postscript capabilities.  I also have a full set of MS Office 95.  Is there any software out there that can reformat my printing into being 2 pages (or 4) on a single sheet of paper?  I don't care if it is an add on for a MS Office program - or if it is a special driver add on for my printer.  I just don't want to have to purchase a postscript printer.

There is a shareware utility out there that can do
this for you. It is called fineprint and is available
at different servers (use archie on fineprt.zip to
locate a server near you) . It is installed as a
printer driver. For example: if you print something
from within any windows program fineprint will
start and reformat the original page, so that it
is printed with more than 1 page per sheet.
The shareware registration fee is $20 and
the unregistered version is limited to print 10
pages.

Another way is to use a postscript interpreter
like ghostscript which is freely available. This
way is somehow more complicated, because
of the setup of ghostscript. Ghostscript is
available on many ftp servers.

Even another way is to use a winword macro.
There are some of these macros out there, but
I wouldn't recommend them, because they
just reformat the text and cripple the layout.
Fineprint uses a graphic mode to achieve
the output.
