I am new to InDesign. Trying to print a tri-fold double sided and the reverse side is printing upside down. I think it is some settings I need to tweak but can't find an easy answer. Can anyone give guidance?
That is handled by the printer options, not InDesign. You have to set this up in your printer settings.
Every other program I tried to print double sided comes out fine, so it does seem as though it is a setting in InDesign
"it does seem as though it is a setting in InDesign"
But it's not. InDesign's Print dialog doesn't include duplexing settings. Your best bet would be to export the pages to PDF and print from Acrobat, but either way, duplex is a print driver setting. There is no universal convention for how it's presented, but "flip on [long or short] edge" is pretty common these days. If for some reason you must print from InDesign, click the Setup button near the lower-left corner of the InDesign Print dialog to access the print driver settings.
Thanks- i did already try this - and then exported as a PDF and brought it to staples and the same thing happened. They said my document was set up this way. Will keep trying different settings.
Thanks for reaching out. I'd recommend checking out an old but similar discussion on https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign/printing-2-sided-from-indesign/td-p/2222207?page=1
Let us know if it helps.
This was solved over HERE. In your document, go to File > Print. At the bottom of the box, there's a button called "Setup..." - clicking this brings up a warning, clicking OK brings up printer preferences. Select your printer, click "Preferences" and one of them should be double sided printing. Two years late, but hopefully it helps anyone else looking for the same thing!
yeah that helped me a lot, Thank you.
