I made a booklet...

I made a booklet in WORD but my printer stopped working and I replaced it with an officejet pro 6978. Somehow, I can't get the settings right to print the booklet. All I get io all four pages on one side of one sheet at 1/4 size. I'm bewildered.

Technician's Assistant: Which programs (name and version) are you experiencing this issue with?

WORD in Office 2013

Technician's Assistant: Is your Word file saved to cloud storage services like Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive?

One Drive yes

Is there any chance you could just tell me what to do to fix this?

Click Page Setup. You’ll find in in the Settings section.

This is probably the most important step, as you’ll be setting up the whole document here. In the window which comes up, start by selecting Book fold in the Pages section.

Now, let’s set the Gutter. The gutter is the space between the part where the document folds and your actual content. You can experiment with it until you find the best gutter size for your booklets.

Also, pick the margin sizes you want.

Once all the margins look good to you, click OK at the bottom.

this is rob

i have your prem servive request

please call me at the number in the secure section and i will get you a link for a remote session

but i strongly suspect that the problem is going to be that it needs to be set to duplex to do the booklet and that printer either does not do duplex or its not set to do so.

duplexing is an option on that printer. You have to set it to on in the device driver

assuming that you purchased it with the optional duplexer.
