pdfnup: print 2 pages in 1 sheet

When I want to print 2 pages in 1 sheet, the contents of the pages become too small: inside the margin of the sheet, the 2 pages keep their margins too.

There is a nice tool called pdfnup (part of pdfjam), which not only help us get rid of the margin problem, but we can trim, shift and do whatever we want with a pdf document to create a more readable new one.

When I print books, most of the time this line is enogh:

pdfnup --nup 2x1 --paper a4paper --noautoscale true --outfile output.pdf input.pdf

There was only one case when some fine calibration was needed:

pdfnup --nup 2x1 --paper a4paper --trim '4.5cm 3.5cm 4.5cm 3.5cm' --outfile output.pdf input.pdf
