Binding Printing

(I am using AI 27.1.1 |  Single document with 8 artboards, all entered the correct 8.5(width) x 11 (height), Portrait in the artboard dialog box) 

I have a odd printing issue. When printing I select the long-side binding and print the pages. The first and last page prints short-side binding and the 2 center pages print correctly as set in the dialog box, long-side binding when printing all boards at the same time. Even when I print those first sheet/last sheet independent, (pages 1-2 and again pages 7-8), "long-side" binding, it print short-side binding. ???? So I tested the selection by printing the pages 1-2 with short-side binding and it still printed the short-side binding (as it should with that selection). Regardless of what I select, I get the first 2 pages (front/back) and the last 2 pages printing short-side binding on both selections.

ANY Help?????

The analogy of Illustrator's artboards to "pages" is weak, and could be breaking down in translation to printer language.

 

I'd be challenged to help you troubleshoot printing directly from Illustrator simply because I never do it. My advice would be to save a copy of the file in PDF format, open it in Acrobat (or Reader), and print from there.
