1. For PDFs over 900 pages (Sedja cannot help with its limit of 200 pages), are there other methods to allocate or impose a number (selected by me) of previously individual pages to 1 sheet, besides using some PDF printer to print multiple pages per sheet?

  2. With Foxit PhantomPDF1, I am trying to print every 2 pages onto 1 sheet of paper; but the problem is the resultant excessive surge in file size: the original of 14 MB surges to 230 MB! How can I solve this problem? I screenshot the settings used:enter image description here

1I have abandoned Adobe Acrobat Pro XI for Foxit PhantomPDF as the latter is easier to use with its comfortable layout (based on MS Office).

  • I assume you're asking for a software to solve described issue, am I correct? If so, can you please clarify: for what OS (assuming Windows here?), what's your budget, what other features should it have, must it allow for commercial use, etc? Please see What is required for a question to contain "enough information"? Then edit your question accordingly. Thanks in advance!

You might better look at imposing programs or plug-ins for Acrobat.

Just so, Quite Imposing by Quite Software comes to my mind.

Refrying (that's essentially what you do when "printing" to PDF is generally not recommended (as it removes too much from the PDF), unless you know what you are doing.

Another possibility would be creating a double-page PDF from the original document.
