Printing in Acrobat X: Printing Double-sided Duplex | Adobe Document Cloud



the ability to print double-sided duplex is a feature of your printer not Acrobat or Adobe Reader so first you need to determine if your printer supports duplex printing and if this feature is turned on you conjecture this feature by opening the print dialog and then selecting the properties button next to your selected printer you should be aware that this printer properties dialog will vary depending on what printer you have selected click for terminology for duplex printing it may be worded differently based on your printer for example it may be referred to as print front and back print both sides or two-sided if your printer doesn't support duplex printing you can still do this manually by using the subset drop-down underneath the page range section first print all the even pages then reload the pages so the blank pages will print and print the odd pages the reverse pages checkbox is convenient if your printer delivers its pages face-up then the stack of output ends up in the correct order to print double-sided on the Mac and Acrobat 10 bring up the print dialog make sure the print dialog is an expanded mode and if necessary click the arrow to the right of the printer menu choose two-sided and layout from the drop-down menu and then select a binding option from the two-sided drop-down if your printer supports duplex printing and you experience any issues with this feature try updating to the latest version of your printing manufacturers driver especially if you've recently updated your operating system for more information on updating your print driver check your print manufacturers website

    That, duplex printing being a function of the printer, is not entirely correct. On some vs. of Adobe Acrobat Professionals, under Adobe "Properties", then "Advanced" there's an option to select, "Simplex," "duplex flip long-edge" and "duplex flip short-edge."

    How can one add a roll over pop-up type definition or explanatory note to a text word or phrase for clarification that only pops up when the operator rolls over the selected text with mouse? (Not sticky note – or otherwise visible)

    My comment/question is:  do we have to use Acrobat for PDF printing?  I, too, have no issues with my printer printing double-sided – my only issue is that I can't do it with Acrobat so it is NOT a function of the printer!

    My printer supports duplex printing because I use it in Word all the time, but not Adobe!!! So frustrating!
