Why does Frame 10 print 3 copies of the same chapter when I print a book to pdf?

I am printing a multi-chapter book. The table of contents generates perfectly but when I go to print the pdf of the book, Frame prints 3 duplicate copies of each chapter and TOC. Why is it doing this and how can I turn off this 'feature'? It is a pain to have to keep deleting the chapters from the pdf in Acrobat.

    Maybe you have the print dialog set to print 3 copies.

    And that could have been set in the application printer dialogs, or in the operating system printer setup/preferences (or both, but then you'd get 9).


    It can also be set locally on some printers, but I suspect that's not what's happening here.


    Is everything in the book tripled-printed, or just some?

    Is it printed cover-toc-body 3 times, or cover-cover-cover, tocx3, bodyx3?

    Are other PDFs printing correctly to the same printer (using the same driver)?
