Printing upside down on page 2. Only happens with pdf docs.   I tried long and short double side printing option

What settings do you have on Orientation?
Autorotate, Portrait or Landscape

Depending how the document is made I have sometimes experienced setting Portrait or Landscape, and then choosing Long or Short edge binding to be more predictable.

Hi Lukas,

 

I am having the same problem. What may comlicate things is that I am trying to print landscape pages in 1 x 3 groups in a portrait oritation so I can place inside a binder for note taking. I've attached my print setup. So far printing along long edge and short edge yield the same upside down results when comparing the front and back pages.
