Sorry for the delay in response.
As you have mentioned above, you are trying to change the default option set for page order in printing window.
Sorry to inform you that there is no such option to change the default option.
However, you can try a work around. Launch the application and go to Preferences > Documents.
Check the box for "Restore last view settings" and click OK at the bottom.
Then try to print some file and select the option you need to make default. After that print the file.
Then try to print another file and check if the settings are same as set before.

I hope this will help.
Let us know if you need any other help.
Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately on exciting the application and opening the same file (or other files) the print setting still defaults to automatic. The issue remains.

having just spoken with our printer manufacturer (epson) the issue is actually with the adobe acrobat print dialogue which conflicts with the system/printer defaults, We find it mainly happens with print runs with odd page numbers whereby unless you select the reverse order in the adobe print dialogue, it prints the first page blank page on the 1st sheet of paper and then proceeds to print the 1st page of the document on the reverse (inside) of the 1st piece of paper. Printing the same thing from other apps comes out normal so its the adobe default of reverse pages being unticked which is confusing it. Is there a way of making this reverse pages setting on by default.
