Pre-made reference materials

The above web sites include pre-made (printable) versions, which should work
in most cases.

Three versions of the reference material are provided:
 - 16-page booklet (\small font)
 - 5-page 2-column reference card (\footnotesize font which is quite small)
 - 1-page 2-column quick refcard (\scriptsize font which is even smaller)
The first two contain all Gnus commands; the last contains only the
most-often used commands. 
 The booklet is provided for single- and double-sided printers, in paper
formats Letter and A4. The other two cards can be printed on both Letter
and A4 printers.

The following files are available:   booklet, Letter paper, double-sided  booklet, Letter paper, single-sided, first run  booklet, Letter paper, single-sided, second run   booklet, A4 paper, double-sided  booklet, A4 paper, single-sided, first run  booklet, A4 paper, single-sided, second run   reference card  quick refcard

To produce the booklet:
1) Print the booklet.
 a) If you have a double-sided printer, 
    - just print bk-??
 b) If you have a single-sided printer, things are more complicated
    - leave only one paper tray in your printer
    - print bk-??
    - reload the resulting 4-sheet stack back into the printer. Don't
      rearrange the stack, just turn it upside down.
    - print bk-??
2) **Important** Arrange the printed stack in the correct order.
   The pages are numbered, so you can't make a mistake.
3) Fold the booklet in two and staple it in the middle. Enjoy!
