Providing Support for Asian Layout

The Microsoft Windows print processor supports Asian languages that read from right to left, such as Arabic, Japanese, and Urdu, with the following features:

  • N-Up Direction: When printing multiple pages on a single sheet, users can print the pages in a right-to-left order on the sheet.

  • Booklet Edge: When printing a booklet, in which sheets are folded and pages are laid out side-by-side, users can order the booklet pages from right to left. The following diagram shows the page layout for a booklet by using the BOOKLET_EDGE_RIGHT flag.Diagram illustrating the page layout for a booklet by using the BOOKLET_EDGE_RIGHT flag

The flags that enable you to change the N-up direction and booklet edge in a driver to support an Asian layout are available in Windows Vista. For details about how to set these values, see DrvQueryJobAttributes and ATTRIBUTE_INFO_4.
