<printTwoOnOne> (Print Two Pages Per Sheet)

This element specifies whether two pages should be printed on one sheet of paper when this document is printed. Specifically, this element specifies that each page displayed for the contents in a given WordprocessingML document should be the page size specified in the section settings divided in half with two top margins originating from the bisector of the page, and bottom margins instantiated at the top and bottom of each page.

If this element is omitted, then pages should be displayed and printed as one per sheet.

<w:pgMar w:top="2160" w:right="1440" w:bottom="1440" w:left="1440" />

The resulting printed pages would appear as follows:

If a document should be displayed and printed as though two pages were printed on a single sheeting, this requirement would be specified using the following WordprocessingML:

<w:printTwoOnOne w:val="true" />

The <printTwoOnOne> element's @val attribute is equal to true specifying that pages should be printed two to a sheet, resulting in the following printout given these page margins:

Parent Elements




<val> (On/Off Value)

Specifies a binary value for the property defined by the parent XML element.

A value of on, 1, or true specifies that the property shall be explicitly applied. This is the default value for this attribute, and is implied when the parent element is present, but this attribute is omitted.

A value of off, 0, or false specifies that the property shall be explicitly turned off.

<w:… w:val="off"/>

The @val attribute explicitly declares that the property is turned off. ]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_OnOff simple type (§2.18.67).

The following XML Schema fragment defines the contents of this element:

<complexType name="CT_OnOff">
	<attribute name="val" type="ST_OnOff"/>
