I will for the first time print double sided on Hahnemuhle Photo rag duo content paper.
It is the A3 (11 x 17inch) landscape format.
I want to avoid wasting to much paper by experimenting before I find the right layout and approach for the double sided printing.
Is there someone who has experience with this and can give me some tips, maybe a template?

Thanks

I do a lot of two sided printing and have used this paper in the past.  Making sure the orientation is correct when you feed the second side of the page is a little tricky at first but easy to establish.  Still, I always do a print preview - especially of that second side.  Even after doing literally hundreds of these, I still have found creative way to mess things up.
I'm not sure what sort of template you might be looking for; if you perhaps give  few more specifics (e.g., what you are printing, how many prints to each side, what printer etc), I might have some suggestions.

I will have 1 photo on each page, visibly centred, which means that I will be off center because It needs to  be centered between the position of the creasing and the edge of the paper. And then of course it will be a different position on the other side of the paper.

I infer from what you say that after you print, you plan to fold the paper so that you have 4 pages, each 81/2 x 11.   It is not difficult to set up; tell me how many and which pages you plan to put the pictures on and I can help. I think that folding the paper neatly will prove a greater challenge than setting up QU. (unless perhaps you have purchased pre-creased paper from somewhere)

No, that's not what I mean. I have difficulties explaining it in English.
The Hahnemuhle content paper is already pre-creased (bended? folded? ...) and has holes in it for using it in a screw post binder.
This means that there is an inch or so that you don't use for printing.

I can't find out how to add an image to this post so I can't show what I mean.

I know what you mean.  I have used that paper and other similar album pages but now I am confused by it being 11x17 as the album pages I have used were either 8x9, for and 8x8 album page, or 12x13 for a 12x12 album page. What size will your page be, disregarding the one inch area for the posts?

It would help if you mentioned the printer used, size of the printer (max sheet size), whether the sheet can be fed manually instead of automatic from a tray and the feeding is landscape or portrait style.
