I started to print a booklet, double sided etc, and at first, I only printed 100. Then when I printed the rest, the back side came upside down. I have done everything I could to fix it, I serched online and followed all instructions about short edge etc, nothing works. Idk what to do. I have the latested version and my desktop is updated as well. 

 

Any new suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi Claudiac

 

We are sorry for the trouble. As described, booklet is printing the backside upside down.

 

Would you mind sharing the make and model of the printer you are using? To print booklets, your printer must support either automatic or manual duplex printing (printing on both sides of the paper). Manual duplex printing requires two separate printing passes: one to print the front side, and another to print the back side. To find out whether your printer supports duplex printing, check the printer manual or contact the printer manufacturer.

 

If your printer does not support Automatic Duplex printing, you'll need to turn or flip the pages and feed them back in. The exact steps depend on your printer model, and you can update the settings using the printer Properties in the Print dialog box.

 

For more information please look at the help pages listed below:

You may also look at the similar discussion https://answers.acrobatusers.com/print-pdf-booklet-q194881.aspx and see if that helps.

I'm having the exact same issue. 

Last week I sucessfully printed a Zine (booklet) and the back side of the pages were the correct. This week I am using the exact same template and have all the correct settings selected but no matter what I do the back side of each page is upside down. Is this a Adobe PDF Glitch?

That's not possible.

 

The "upside down" glitch happens when the printer has configuration errors. Therefore, you should describe the printer and the parameters more in detail.

It is possible. I'm having the same (intermittent) issue across two different printers. Brand new fully updated Laptop, never had this issue before. Gonna try from my older machine.

I've also tried ALL of the suugestions on here. I've saved as a different name and re-exported. Restarted my computer, restarted my printer and nothing works.  I was able to follow some super basic setup instructions last week and have no problem so I really don't think the problem is the printer.
