I know it is easily possible to let the printer drivers shrink your page so that multiple of them fit on one page.

I want to do the same thing, but in a slightly different version. I have a Word document with a very special width and height. Because it's much smaller than DIN A4, I want to print multiple of them on one page. How can I do that whilst keeping the width and height the same?

I've never been able to do this from Word natively but I have used FinePrint which will fit multiple document pages onto one page for printing.

It's a paid for application (it costs $49.95), but there is a free version which does have some limitations and include "Printed by Fine Print" (or something similar) in the footer, but might be OK for you.

Let me test that. Thanks for now. – Franz Jan 21 '10 at 12:00
    
I will report back. – Franz Jan 21 '10 at 12:00
    
I couldn't figure out how to do it. I'm sure this program can do it, but for me it did scale, too. – Franz Jan 21 '10 at 12:07

Word can do this natively. In the lower right of the print dialog there is the option to print multiple pages on a single one as well as scaling options (which might come in handy to prevent scaling down the pages even further if they are smaller than A5).

Note: It seems that Word won't scale down the pages as long as they aren't larger than the portion of the tiles page they should occupy.

Do I have to choose "No scaling" or the output format? – Franz Jan 21 '10 at 12:08
    
It appears so, yes. – Joey Jan 21 '10 at 12:09
    
Uhm... this was an "either-or" question... ;) However, this didn't work. For some reason it only printed one copy on the paper - and it also printed a textfield that went over the right border. For some reason, this was also not displayed in the correct color, but I'm sure that is another problem... – Franz Jan 21 '10 at 12:13
    
More importantly: what about Adobe Reader? – Franz Jan 21 '10 at 12:18
