PdfSaveOptions.UseBookFoldPrintingSettings property

Gets or sets a boolean value indicating whether the document should be saved using a booklet printing layout, if it is specified via MultiplePages.

public bool UseBookFoldPrintingSettings { get; set; }


If this option is specified, PageSet is ignored when saving. This behavior matches MS Word. If book fold printing settings are not specified in page setup, this option will have no effect.


Shows how to save a document to the PDF format in the form of a book fold.

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "Paragraphs.docx");

// Create a "PdfSaveOptions" object that we can pass to the document's "Save" method
// to modify how that method converts the document to .PDF.
PdfSaveOptions options = new PdfSaveOptions();

// Set the "UseBookFoldPrintingSettings" property to "true" to arrange the contents
// in the output PDF in a way that helps us use it to make a booklet.
// Set the "UseBookFoldPrintingSettings" property to "false" to render the PDF normally.
options.UseBookFoldPrintingSettings = renderTextAsBookfold;

// If we are rendering the document as a booklet, we must set the "MultiplePages"
// properties of the page setup objects of all sections to "MultiplePagesType.BookFoldPrinting".
if (renderTextAsBookfold)
    foreach (Section s in doc.Sections)
        s.PageSetup.MultiplePages = MultiplePagesType.BookFoldPrinting;

// Once we print this document on both sides of the pages, we can fold all the pages down the middle at once,
// and the contents will line up in a way that creates a booklet.
doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "PdfSaveOptions.SaveAsPdfBookFold.pdf", options);
