I am using Windows 7 --64 bit and printing a PDF to dell 3115cn and can NOT print more than one copy of a PDF at a time. I have used adobe acrobat pro 8 and then went to reader x --same issues.
I have selected print number of copies from both printer properties and from reader print dialog. When number of copies has been set in reader or acrobat the printer properties numbers mirror the number set in reader or acrobat
Hi to all!
I have a similar issue using Adobe Reader X 10.0.1, 10.1.0, 10.1.2, when select File > Print > Page Handling: 1, click Printer Properties > Page Setup, specify eg. Copies : 5, it prints 1 copy only. Happen to a number of different printers, eg. HP, Epson, Xerox, Canon, Brother printer, etc. However, if you specify 5 copies inside Reader Print Dialog box, it prints 5 copies correctly.
It did not happen on Adobe Reader 8.1.3 and Reader 9.4.7. Meaning if you specify 5 copies inside printer properties, it prints exactly 5 copies. If you specify 5 copies inside Reader Print Dialog box, it also prints 5 copies correctly.
Anyone have any solutions or workarounds to solve this issue besides specifying Adobe Reader X : File>Print>Page Handling: 5 copies?
Thanks in advance!
This is most likely the mopier setting (yes it's a real setting) in the printer. It's usually enabled by default and is used so that a given app can send just one copy of a given job/page & then WIndows plus the printer take care of printing multple copies. With the combination of Adobe and particularly WIn 7, they get confused - especially if it's an older printer without much internal memory (most Adobe pages are memory intensive!)
Go to Devices & printers, right click the printer in question, choose printer properties, then select the device settings tab, scroll down to installable options & then disable mopier mode.
Best of Luck
I have to concur with GCinTX. My HP Officejet 8600 drivers does have the Device Settings but it does not include the Mopier Mode setting. It may be device specific -- so unfortunately my problem still exists. Would love to hear from others on possible solutions.
