Publisher printing many copies creates many print jobs
Since we upgraded to Publisher 2013 we've been having issues when we print many copies of our bulletin. This bulletin is four pages long and we need to print 300 copies of it. When Publisher sends it to the printer, it sends it as something like 1,200 originals of 1 copy each. This prints real slowly.
Any other application (Word, Adobe Reader, etc.) sends a similar print job as 4 original of 300 copies. In fact our work-around is to export the Publisher bulletin to PDF and then print 300 copies of that PDF to the same printer as we used for Publisher. This is much faster.
I cannot find any settings within Publisher that controls this behavior. Publisher 2003 did not do this.
Has anyone seen this behavior and found a solution?
