When I try to print a booklet, every other page prints upside down. I've set it up as f&b, short edge bind, legal/landscape, with booklet selected.
Please confirm the workflow that you follow exactly to understand this better.
Also please confirm if it happens with all file and from when have you experienced this issue?
My original document was made in ID, then exported as a pdf. I have been printing this document for years without a problem but my Brother MFC-L8850CDW was recently replaced under warranty and that’s when the trouble started.
I set it up to print legal, landscape, F&B, collated, short-edge binding w/o border, and I choose Booklet with both sides. The preview shows the pages in the correct orientation but the even pages all print upside down.
Thank you for your help!!
Do you have an answer for me?
Acefrog, thank you very much for providing a solution! I appreciate your help very much! I would have never figured that out. Carol
Absolut genious! Finding this on 2020 and it saved me, thank youuu!
I have the same issue, but none of the solutions mentioned above are making a difference when I print from Adobe Reader on my mac.
My printer supports automatic duplex printing, and I have followed these steps exactlym and still every second page is printing upside down and out of order:
Booklet Subset Determines which sides of the paper print. Choose Both Sides to automatically print both sides of the paper (your printer must support automatic duplex printing). (I choose both sides, because our printer is set by default to print double sided)
My printer supports automatic duplex printing, so there has to be a way for it to print correctly without me turning the pages manually... My page orientation is set to PORTRAIT.
THIS ONLY HAPPENS WHEN I PRINT FROM PDF, when I print booklets form Word, they come out perfectly.
I am stuck...
Thanks so much for this tip. I think I printed my document at least five times, with different settings. Choosing "Portrait" didn't make sense so I didn't change it. But when I did it finally printed correctly. Yay!
Thank you, thank you! I too thought changing to "Portrait" didn't make sense: changed it after my third attempt and bravo!
