Hello magpie1963, welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry that you have not had any responses to date. However, having done a brief search, the instructions are as follows:
Get Started - Print a publication - Publisher -

If you use the check box to save your print settings immediately below the RGB Composition setting, the imposition should be saved with your publication.

Print settings and print preview

The new Backstage View for printing looks like this:

On the left are the print settings and on the right the preview pane. Changes made to the setting in the left pane (of the Print Back stage) will affect both the preview and the printed result. Changes made to the setting in the preview pane (of the Print Back stage) will affect the preview, and will not affect the printed result.
Note Some of these controls are dependent on other settings, for example the color control will only be available if your printer can print in color and the front/back transparency slider will only be available if you choose print on both sides of the paper.
The print settings allow you to configure:

1. Print: Enter the number of copies of the print job you want to print and press Print to send the job to your printer.
2. Printer: In addition to selecting from a list of available printers, you can also add a new printer, access the Advanced Output Settings, and print to a file.
3. Settings: The settings section gives you control over:
  • Pages: Allows you to select specific pages or page ranges to print.
  • Print imposition: Here you can specify the arrangement of the Publisher pages on the printerís sheet of paper. For example, you can impose multiple copies of one page on a sheet, or you might impose multiple different pages on a sheet.
  • Paper size: Select the size and style of the sheets of paper from those supported by the selected printer.
  • One sided/two sided printing: Choose whether to print on one or both sides of the paper, and which edge to use in flipping the paper.
    Note If the printer does not support duplex printing "Manual 2 sided print" will be displayed. This is the case also for the XPS printer driver. After the user presses the print button the printer setup wizard will guide the user on how to print duplex manually.
  • Color: If your printer supports color this control will allow you to choose color or grayscale printing.
  • Save settings with publication: If selected this check box will save your Settings selections with this publication.
Note In Office Publisher, page size refers to a working area of your publication. Paper, or sheet, size is the size of the paper that you use for printing. A sheet of paper may contain multiple pages, and a large page may be imposed across multiple sheets.

I have a copy of Office 2007 (including Publisher) on a netbook - if you have anything which still as the parameters of the template maybe we could recreate it.

Was it a standard one, downloaded from MS, or something you created yourselves?

Publisher 2010 - Snap To
In my 2003 version of Publisher, when I moved or drew something, I could choose to have it snap to layout guides, the ruler or other items. I can't figure out how to do this in Publisher 2010.
