Printing in OmniFocus Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hi, everyone--

I have been using a 5.5" x 8.5" Franklin Covey planner for several years now. I'm testing out OmniFocus and so far it seems okay (except for an iCal sync issue, but that seems common!)

What I'd like to do is print a context list so I can punch holes in it and put it in my binder. Does anyone know how to set up the printer preferences so it prints at a 5.5" x 8.5" size, or how to convert it to a Covey-style thing?

I know iCal can be printed via iPlanner.

Can anyone help?

Thank you!

That depends on whether you want to print 2 pages on a full-size piece of paper and then cut it in half, or whether you're printing single pages directly on to half-size paper.

To print 2 pages on 8.5 x 11 paper, choose Print from the File menu. To the right of the name of your printer, there's a little down arrow. Click it, so that a bunch more buttons and drop-downs are displayed.
There's a drop-down with horizontal lines on either side, choose "Layout" from that menu. Now right below that it should say "Pages per Sheet:" Change that to 2. Print.

To print on paper that's already the final size, ignore what I said above. Instead, open Page Setup (in the File menu). In the "Paper Size:" menu, choose "Manage Custom Sizes...". This will open a new dialog. Click the plus in the lower right corner. This will add a new paper size called "Untitled". Double-click this and type a useful name like "planner" or "half-size". In the upper right, change the "Page Size:" boxes to "5.5" and "8.5". I'm not sure exactly what margins you'll want to set, you may have to come back and adjust them later. Click okay to close this and get back to the main Page Setup window. Now your new size should be listed in the "Paper Size" menu; select it.
Click OK. Now you should be back in OmniFocus. Choose "Print" from the File menu. Print.
I tried this just now, Lizard. Thanks for the tips. The font size seems terribly small so I may end up increasing it for readability's sake.

In Page Setup (in the File menu), you can change the Scale to a larger value (e.g. 200%) to make your printed text larger without affecting the size of the text on the screen.

Hope this helps!
