Duplex Printing setting is ignored in manager. Everything else prints duplex when I select duplex in printer preferences! Not sure why this is happening.
Is this when you use
Yes, if I use PDF button it will save file file as pdf and I can print using duplex in pdf editor program.
However, I am unsure why Manager ignores the windows printer preferences settings as the duplex etc settings are managed by Windows not by the program you are in.
It’s not a problem as I normally never need to print in duplex from Manager. But I would still raise it as a bug as Windows handles printer preferences so Manager is not handling the printer in the same way other programs do.
I don’t think this is a bug in Manager.
When desktop edition is open, can you open Internet Explorer and navigate to
http://localhost:55555 ? This will allow you to access Manager in IE. See if you printing in IE shows the same problem. I suspect it will.
Interesting. It does not appear to work properly in Firefox or IE either. I think it has something to do with the margins etc. In IE it prints four pages ( a blank page, first page, blank page and second page), in Firefox it prints 3 pages. So it’s not actually duplex that is the issue, its the number of pages being printed that is the issue.
Not to worry. I hardly ever need to print anything in Duplex from Manager. So I am happy to close this issue.
