    Multiple copies duplex?? (2000)

    If I print multiple copies (collated) on a duplex printer, and there are an odd number of pages, the second set starts on the back of the first set's last page:

    front back
    1 2
    3 1
    2 3

    This be dumb, no???? How do I fix it?? Is this a PowerPoint thing or a printer driver thing?

    I don't know the inner thoughts of such machines but I could imagine to locations for the mistake:
    1. The application might forget to insert a formfeed (or equivalent) into the print stream
    2. It may be that the printer driver is supposed to recognize "new document, start a new sheet".

    ?? --Thanks - deB

    Does this problem happen in other apps?

    Nope - I just had them confirm it, and it's only in PowerPoint.
