    Duplex multi copy (Word XP)

    I'm printing multi copies of my ISSP in duplex on my HP 4300dtn printer. It has an uneven number of pages so that the last page prints on a 'front' rather than a 'back'. When I print multiple copies, the first page of the second copy prints on the back of the last page of the first copy. (ie. page 1 is printed oin the back of page 33) Printer drivers seem to be latest. Any ideas ?

    Hi Chris,

    You could:
    a) change printer drivers to something more intelligent (many other printer drivers will work with HP printers, though the supported printer options might differ); or
    [img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img] add an even last page to your document. You can automate this using a field attached to an empty final paragraph coded as:
    {IF{=Mod({NUMPAGES},2)}= 1 {QUOTE 12} ""}

    Note: The field braces are not typed - they are created in pairs via Ctrl-F9.
