Indesign wont print duplex booklet

Jan 19, 2013 7:36 AM

im having an issue printing duplex booklet straight out of indesign


i have enabled two sided printing on my BROTHER MFC-J6510DW printer dialogue, but when you send it, it doesn't print duplex.


for now i have had to add a PPD patch file so i can print the booklet to PDF (postscript) file, and then from there the printer seems to have no problem printing the document duplex.


any ideas why it doesn't work straight from indesign?

    Has to be a problem in the print driver. Did you set the driver to print duplex? That's one level deeper than the print setup in the Print Booklet dialog.

    Other programs don't mean a thing to ID and printing. The bad news is I'm a Windows user and the dialogs are a little different and I never can remember which buttons are which on the Mac. You need to get all the way to the printers driver settings dialog -- might be called printing preferences or something similar, and it may be one level deeper than you've gone so far.


    Or it could be that ID and that printer just don't get along.
