Here's a dumb question, is there a way to specify default printing as Duplex Print when creating a PDF document? The products I'm using are Acrobat 9 Pro and 10 Pro.

Go to the File menu : Properties : Advanced

This can be automated with a Preflight fixup or by using JavaScript.

Note that this only works with "real" PDF reader software. Preview, default and low-end software may ignore this setting.

Hi Shaggy

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry to hear that.

 

Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat let you print double-sided if your printer supports that feature. The printer driver controls the options, not Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader. Check your printer documentation to see what features your printer supports. (Double-sided printing is also called duplex, back to back, front and back, or two-sided printing.)

 

For more information please check the help page https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/print-double-sided-acrobat-reader.html

 

Note: Acrobat 9 and 10 are EOL applications. For more information please check the help page https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/end-support-acrobat-8-reader.html

 

Regards

Amal

Thanks but I know how to print duplex/simplex. I'm asking if there's a way to enforce duplex print during the creation of PDF. Perhaps I can set PDF printing properties as Duplex (by default) so when the end user click Print, they will all come out duplex. Is that even possible?

Got it & thanks. I'm sure Adobe Reader can honor the settings, right?
