    To save papers, I need to print several slides (PDF) on one page. Just like what we do for powerpoint slides.

    Can Preview do that? I did not find any option.

    Thanks!

    In any print dialog box, look for the Layout menu, then selected Pages per Sheet.

    Are you saying you have a PDF file that has multiple pages, and you need them to show up as 4 pages per sheet?

    I know you can tell the PRINT dialog to save as PDF after you configure it for 2-pages per sheet, not sure I have seen something that can do more, but there might be one in there.

    In the print dialog choose "paper size" and choose "custom". Change the size of the paper and this will reduce the amount of pages that get printed. After that then save to PDF.

    Setting Pages per Sheet in Layout does the same thing without changing the paper size.
