Default Duplex Printing Landscape

I want to print a landscape document on both sides, so flipping along the
long axis shows the second side the right way up. No matter what duplex
print options I try, this always seems to come out so it's the right way
when flipped on the short axis.

I'm sure the content is irrelevant, but I'll describe it anyway:

Each page comprises two tables, 3 columns by 3 rows, where the 2 cells on
the bottom right are merged to form a High cell:

XXX XXX
XXH XXH
XXH XXH

XXX XXX
XXH XXH
XXH XXH

Assuming the entire document is landscape but you intend to bind it on the
long edge (which is what it sounds like), then you need to set the duplexer
to flip on the short side (tablet style). This will result in the top of the
page being to the left on every page.

No matter what I do on the printer, I get the same result: the top of the
lettering is always on the same long edge.

This is what you want, isn't it? To have the top of all pages on the left?

As I said, I want to print a landscape document on both sides, so flipping
along the long axis shows the second side the right way up.

Another way of looking at it: if you hold the document up to the light in
landscape format, the reverse side is upside down. Any clearer?

I can't tell whether you're describing what you want or what you get. You
also haven't described whether you're binding this on the short or long
edge, which makes a difference. And in fact I told you wrong the first time:
if you're binding on the short edge, then that's the one you want to flip
on. You'll then have the tops of both sides back to back. The same type of
flip is required for a single-page landscape document such as a brochure.

If you're binding on the long edge (whether the document is to be looked at
in portrait or landscape orientation), you want to flip on the long edge.
The conventional arrangement of such documents is to have the top to the
left (portrait) or (obviously) top in landscape view (like a calendar) so
that readers need rotate the document only one direction to read broadside
tables or other landscape pages.

I'm a bit confused by talk of "binding", there is no binding. I guess you
could think of it in those terms though...

Imagine a landscape document, binding at the top. When I flip a page up, I
want the reverse side to be the right way up.

I can do it in Acrobat Reader, but for some reason Word always prints the
second page for left edge binding.

Look at these photos of what I get, they are not what I want:

I've just had an experiment with a doc in landscape orientation and it seems
to do what you want.

Print Odd pages

Flip the stack of printed pages over along its longer axis and replace in
sheet feed

Print Even pages

Apologies if I've misunderstood your problem.
