I'm producing an A4 magazine using Quark 4.1. The pages are laid out A3 size (obviously folded in half to get A4). What I'd like to do is print out the A3 sheets at A4 size through my Epson 740 printer (which only takes A4 size paper)- effectively reducing the size of each sheet. This is purely so i can proof read each page before sending it to the printers.
Any ideas?

Try choosing "Fit to paper" in Page Setup; if that's not available, try reducing the print to 64% (or so) to fit it on one page when you print.

You can check the manual for your printer here:

Pages 56-62 contain the above instructions.

Another thing to try would be to manually 'tile' the prints so that you print each half of the A3 at 100% to your A4 printer.

To tile manually, click on the ruler intersection in the top left hand corner of the document window and drag it to the bottom left corner of the page; then when you print in quark, choose 'Tile' and manual... after the left hand side prints, move the ruler intersection to the middle bottom of your A3 page and tell it to print again for the second, right half.

good luck
