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

Thumbs up Answer: Duplex Printing Landscape

Hi Nigel,

To print a landscape document on both sides, so flipping along the long axis shows the second side the right way up, you can follow these steps:
  1. Open your document in Microsoft Word.
  2. Click on the "Layout" tab in the ribbon at the top of the screen.
  3. Click on the "Print Orientation" drop-down menu and select "Landscape".
  4. Click on the "Margins" button and select "Custom Margins".
  5. In the "Page Setup" dialog box, select the "Margins" tab.
  6. Set the top, bottom, left, and right margins to your desired values.
  7. Click on the "Paper" tab.
  8. Under "Paper size", select the size of paper you want to use.
  9. Under "Orientation", select "Landscape".
  10. Click on the "OK" button to close the "Page Setup" dialog box.
  11. Click on the "File" tab in the ribbon at the top of the screen.
  12. Click on "Print".
  13. In the "Print" dialog box, click on the "Printer Properties" button.
  14. In the "Printer Properties" dialog box, select the "Finishing" tab.
  15. Under "Print on both sides", select "Flip on long edge".
  16. Click on the "OK" button to close the "Printer Properties" dialog box.
  17. Click on the "Print" button to print your document.

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?

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.

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.

If your printer accepts PCL commands, you may be able to use a PRINT field.
A PRINT field is simply a type of field that allows you to send instructions
directly to the printer.

The value for Portrait setting: { PRINT 27&l0O" }
The value for Landscape { PRINT 27"&l1O" }

Put the relevant codes at the top of the pages.
Whether this will work for you in conjunction with duplex mode I cannot say.

Incidentally you can use ALT+PrtScreen to copy the active Window to the
clipboard (or better still use SnagIt - there is a trial).

Okay, so what you have is like a calendar. And this means that you are
flipping on the long edge, just the same as if you had a landscape section
in a portrait document and wanted the top to the left on each page. This is
what you would ordinarily get by default if you choose to flip on the long
edge, BUT there are some printers that perversely flip in the opposite
direction, and AFAIK there is no way around this except perhaps to get a
different driver for the printer. IIRC, the first inkjet I had output
landscape pages rotated one way relative to the portrait pages, and when I
updated the driver, it rotated them the other way; this was an issue with
single-sided printing, but it does illustrate that a different driver might
give different results.

FWIW, I don't know what you mean by "left-edge binding." I assume you mean
"short-edge binding," which will alternate left and right on the "inside"
(gutter). From your illustrations, however, it certainly appears that you
have all the printer settings correct. You might experiment with the
"Options for duplex printing" on the Print tab of Tools | Options, though I
believe they have more to do with which side is printed first.

From your later posts, however, it seems you've achieved what you were
trying for.

For our Xerox printers, with a Landscape oriented Word document, selecting
Properties in the File Print dialog and then on the Paper Output tab, select
Flip on long edge in the 2 Sided Print drop down and setting the Image
Orientation to Landscape, the output is as you require.

Almost certainly, YMMV with HP and their crappy drivers.

In Word 2007, Office Button | Word Options | Advanced: Print on front/back
of sheet for duplex printing. The unhelpful illustrations have been
eliminated, which makes the options even harder to find.

I completely understand and I'm having the same problem. If I download a landscape oriented document in Microsoft Word and print it, I get the following options:

flip on short edge
flip on long edge

I too want to print my LANDSCAPE docx from GoogleDocs on two sides so that the document flips on the long edge. Right now, it seems the only way I can print a landscape doc on 2 sides is to have it flip on the short edge.

So it seems it's just a lack of features in GoogleDoc print options in that it does not allow you to choose which edge to flip the document on for 2 sided printing.

??? the original post is from 2008 and they haven't fixed it yet??

I had this problem too! The following worked for me:

Create a PDF of the document, then open the PDF and rotate the second page before printing. Did exactly what I wanted.

Hope this helps someone!
