I am trying to print a double sided document and the printer has me print all the odd/right pages then flip paper and print the even/left pages.
The first page of the index in my InDesign file (page "a") begins on a left facing page in the document - but prints as a right facing page (starts a new piece of paper). This leaves a blank left-facing page before Page A - and the rest of the index prints with odd pages on right and even pages on left.
How do I eliminate this blank page and have "Page a" begin on a left facing page and the rest of the document print as odd-facing pages on left and even-facing pages on right?
I know there is a work around by overriding master page items and numbering settings - but I hope there is a way through InDesign to fix this.
As far as I can tell, your only options are to
1) Print the first page separately, and then do the others
2) Add a blank page at the beginning of your document (and make sure to check Print Blank Pages in your print dialog)
I have this issue all the time, because all my catalog sections start on the left-hand page. I use option 1 above to get the print-order correct, but I really wish there was a print option for Duplex follows Layout to force the pages onto the correct sides.
I think that "Print blank pages" option was the cause of trouble.
