Setting the page print range via JavaScript

I have a 5 page form. I want to print it, for saving purposes, as 2 A5 pages on one A4. So we set the A4 page as landscape and place one reduced A4 page in the left half and the other in the right half. There's a little problem with that last odd page number 5, though.
Namely, setting the print range as:

pp = this.getPrintParams();
ppback = pp;
pp.pageHandling = pp.constants.handling.nUp;
pp.nUpPageOrders = pp.constants.nUpPageOrders.Vertical;
pp.nUpNumPagesH = 1;
pp.nUpNumPagesV = 2;
pp.nUpPageBorder=true;
pp.nUpAutoRotate=true;
pp.DuplexType = pp.constants.duplexTypes.DuplexFlipShortEdge;
pp.printRange=[[1, 1], [0, 0], [3,3], [2,2], [4,4]];
this.print(pp);

Page 5 (which is 4 counting from 0) is printed on the right side of the last sheet, leaving the left side blank. Is there any way to force it to be printed on the left side of the page? It's an aesthetic problem, but it's a minor thing that annoys me.

Not really. You can add a blank page before it, though, and then print both pages together. Then delete the page after the print command. Just be aware you'll need to adjust all the page numbers following the location where you added that page.

Thanks, that's the answer I expected. I assumed you'd have to cheat. Actually, I even did before you answered 🙂
