	I am not an expert; however, I would say that there are two
completely different ways:
- The easiest way is to create only one pdf, because pdf file may be printed
on a different paper format as the original paper size. Of courses, that
works just a zoom.
- The second way is to do a different layout in a second .sla file with the
appropriate paper choice. If there is especially text, without pictures, or
a few ones, it is not a lot of work. In the other case, you have to do some
work.  I think this is the price to have a beautiful document.

I want to create two pdfs from the same source
material (a technical book.)
Version one would have 5.5 x 8.5 pages for
printing. Version two would be a two-up version of
the same, 11 in x 8.5 in,  for use as a pdf ebook,
and of course half the number of pages. Of course
the customer could use acroread to read it in two
up fashion, but I want the user to be able to
print it out on letter paper landscape. 

There are lots of dumb ways to do this. Can
anyone come up with a smart way?
