Some lines of text printing upside down

Hi, I'm this is my first project on Indesign and I'm making a single-sided, single sheet, 8-page zine. So on my computer screen screen, the bottom half of the document is right side up, while the top half is upside down. (For the top half, after designing it right side up, I selected the text boxes and images, and rotated them 180 degrees). 

However, when I print it out, some of the lines of text on the top half come out wrongly. The letters are flipped right side up, and reads right to left. 

It's weird because within the same text box, some lines are fine while others wrong.  Please see images attached.

If anyone could please advise me on how to fix this, I would be extremely grateful. Thank you very much!

Any time InDesign does odd things when printing — and it does, more often than you'd think reasonable — try exporting the document to PDF. If the faults persist there, they have nothing to do with printing; if they don't, there may not be any good workaround for your system, printer etc. to print complex stuff directly from ID.

 

Fortunately, PDF is easy to generate and has far better manners in complex print operations.
