Just got an Epson B-310 with a duplex attachment. Trying to print a test 8 page booklet. Pages are 5.5"x8.5" for folded letter size paper. If duplex is off, all text is positioned correctly (centered on the page). If I duplex with the first landscape mode, the second set of pages printed on the back side (pages 2,7 and 4,5) are shifted to the right 0.5". If I use the second landscape mode (reversing the print) the second set of pages is shifted left 0.5". Any ideas on what setting I am missing? Epson basically says "Since we don't support Adobe InDesign I'm not sure what settings to tell you to select or change for the margin setup you desire." I hope it is just a setting I have not found yet. The previews look correct. The print is shifted on the pages coming out of the duplexor.
What's your OS?
The bad news is that some printers (most of the reports we see here are HP printers, but I don't think any brand is immune) just don't get along well with ID, and printing from PDF is the best workaround.
Windows 7. I think I tried PDF and got some weird results - but I think I will go back to that and try a bit more. I did look at the printer data is going out RAW. I have not tried to see if there is a different protocol that works better.
Tried changing the processor in the print server properties. No change. Nothing seems to move it the half inch I need. Kind of makes Epson B-310 duplex and InDesign booklets useless. Not sure what I am going to try next.
