My eyesight is starting to go, yet as a master’s student, I have to read scholarly papers (in PDF format) on a regular basis.
These scholarly papers have small print due to their two-column format, and it’s a pain to read them on the screen. I’d like to be able to print each 8-1/2″x11″ page across two pieces of paper – printing one half of each page on its own sheet of paper, followed by the other half on the next sheet of paper, zooming the print to 200%, thereby giving me a larger font which should be easier to read. Any idea how to do this? The print drivers I’ve seen are set to cram multiple pages on a single sheet – I want to do the exact opposite. In case it’ll help, I have Adobe Acrobat Full version 6, so if creating a PDF as an intermediary step is part of the process, that’s not a problem.
