Printer is set for single sided printing only. Always have to change reader printing setting from double to single side only and always prints double sided. Can't find any other settings to check. Stuck on default of double sided printing. No idea what to do.

Please state your OS and version! What printer do you use?

Please go to "Printer Properties" on the Acrobat print dialog box and check there if your printer is not set as duplex printing by default.

I stated all settings are changed to single side only. Will always go back

from my changed setting of single to default of double side. I know duplex

is default and chanded it to single everyday printing. No effect. Everytime

I close out, I go back to check settings and always reverts to default.

Never will my change settings be saved. Does what it wants. I just

installed it so lateset version, my feeling is to uninstall and go find

much previous version that works.

Please state your OS and version! What printer do you use?

Also: Acrobat does not change any print settings. Closing Acrobat and opening again will fall back to the printers default settings.

That makes no sense. They ask you single side or double side. You can

change from either one. printer is set to single. Printer driver is suppose

to control print settings. Acrobat always overrides and tells it to print

double no matter what. No customer support and obviously no help here.

No customer support and obviously no help here.

The questions I asked are standard questions helping the experts to recommend settings and solutions. If you do not answer basic questions, no one can help, except giving standard answers.

This is a user to user forum and a lot of qualified people are following these fora. Some Adobe employees are also present here, but this is not support. If you are using a paid product, you may contact support as indicated on the Adobe website.

Have a nice day,

Abambo.

This is hard to answer because it most likely has to do with your printer driver (You have not said which operating system, printer or printer driver which makes it even more difficult to help).
There are many options that Acrobat does not have direct access to, printer features like double sided, ink saving and draft mode are among these.

I am having this problem too.  Using Mac OS X 10.13.6 and Acrobat XI.  Have also tried on Acrobat Reader DC and same thing happens.  The printer driver in the firmware is set to 2 sided off.  The printer in OS X has the 2 sided checks box empty.  Have closed Acrobat and also restarted Mac, both with no luck.

The printer driver is for Brother HL-L6200DW series

Thanks for help

Dan

Did you ever find a solution to this problem. What I have noticed is that some PDF documents are secured and the person that created them can sometimes set certain properties like only to print double sided and nothing can overide it.
