I am happy you like DocumentMaker, Maria. I only wish I had the funds to fix the software a bit, so it worked better for both of us...

You need to use "scale" and reduce the document to 50 per cent or 75 per cent or whatever size is needed to reduce it to fit A5...

And a lot depends on your computer's printer driver because the Scale feature is in different places depending on your computer...Here are some suggestions...

1. Under Scripts menu at the top inside DocumentMaker, choose Print A4 rather than Print US Letter. Even though you do not want A4, and you want A5, at least A4 is a European paper size. This is more important than you can is a screen capture:
