The "duplicate... pages" in your post got my attention. My Adobe Reader 8.1 prints 3 duplicates of the first page of a document and 0 copies of the remaining pages.
Adobe Reader 5 prints the same documents just fine.
It is an adobe reader problem cuz I can print all pages, with no duplicates, from many other applications running on the Mac laptop.
Running MAC OS 10.4. Generic HP printer. Stopping and relaunching the reader does not help.
What makes a printer print duplicate pages, anyway? Something in the postscript, I guess. So Adobe Reader 8 for the Mac must be generating goofy PS. This is such a weird problem but it has persisted from Adobe Reader 8.1.0 through 8.1.2. -- DB
I too am having exactly the problem described by Roland and it's extremely annoying when printing large double sided documents as the page numbering gets out of sequence. The only workaround I have found is to be aware of the problem, remove the duplicate page 2 and print the last odd page separately.
Printing from AR used to be very robust but something has got broken in this latest version.
Windows XP SP2, Acrobat Reader 8.1.2, HP Laserjet 4 plus (non PS, parallel interface)
I have the exact same problem. With my HP-1200, I need to print even pages in reverse order first. I have a 13-page document. When I print "even-pages only," it prints the following pages in this order: 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 2. It prints page 2 twice! When I put the pages back into the printer and select "odd pages only" (not reversed), it prints pages 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11, but it does not print page 13.
I found the same problem with other pdf documents, and I use the same workaround.
I installed this Adobe Reader, version 8.1.2 several days ago. I never had this problem with previous versions of Adobe Reader. I am running Vista Home Premium on my Dell Dimension E520.
Is Adobe aware of this? Does anyone have a better workaround?
This problem seems to occur only with documents having an odd number of pages. No problems printing documents with an even number of pages.
I get the same issue. I also have Adobe Acrobat 6 Pro & Distiller for making pdf's. However the issue occurs with Acrobat Reader 8 when I am printing from my Sourcing system which defaults to Adobe Reader to view any documents. If I am printing pages 1-7 odds only it will print 1,3,5 but not 7 When I print the even pages I get 2,4,6,6. Crazy, if their are more or less pages it appears to print all but the last page of odds and all the evens plus an extra copy of the last page of evens.
The only way round it appears to be to print each page individually, then reverse them and print each even page individually.
I'm sure it's an issue with Reader as I have been through so many possible changes in default paper sizes and everything but nothing has resolved it.
I found a solution to this annoying problem -
I downloaded the free Foxit Reader (ver 3.0).
It prints exactly as I expect it to print - no double or missing pages.
