I have a 24-page document. I'm trying to print booklet using 2-up saddle stitch. The preview in the Print Booklet dialog looks great - everything matches up the way it should. But when I actually print it, it doesn't print the same as the preview. In the screen shot below, you can see page 4 has an image of a tree, and page 21 has a single line of text. In the photo of the actual print, you can see that the tree is printed on the right (i.e., the wrong side of the page), and the other page is actually page 23!
I'm pulling my hair out. My document is a multiple of 24, and I have no blank pages in the document, and even if I did, those are set to print. What's going on?

Print booklet is a mess, not only my opinion but also in the opinion of many Adobe staffers.
Imposing should not be the task of the designer, it is the task of the printer. You should export single pages and bring them to your printer, If you need to make a small brochure, export as PDF and print as brochure from the Acrobat print dialog. So you can avoid postscript.
Thanks Willi. I ended up printing to a postscript file and that worked. Why it doesn't work on the actual printer is still a mystery…
