Use printer default setting for double-sided printing
Currently Adobe Acrobat DC does not recognise if the default printer setting on my mac has been set to duplex. There is a work around. By pressing the printer button and selecting 'duplex' from the print dialogue box that is revealed, pdfs can be printed double sided (DC warns against doing this by the way). The trouble is that it is easy to forget to follow this process, particularly when I am in a hurry, with the result that pdfs, in my case often 20 or 30 pages documents, are printed single sided. This wastes paper, is environmentally unfriendly and negates the whole reason for setting the default to double sided. I have many applications on my mac and Adobe applications (it's not just DC) are the only ones that don't recognise the duplex default setting. Please feel free to contact me if you require further information.
Thank you for sharing this issue with us.
The issue is fixed and will be available in our October release.
Thanks & Regards,
The settings in the dialogue boxes for printing all have two-sided printing OFF, yet Adobe pro DC documents are printing duplex - I am using MacOS 10.14.5. What is the fix for this?
So here's my problem: I de-select print both sides. Every time I print it prints on both sides. I'm using a Macbook Pro 2018 model and an HP Laserjet 402 and HP Laserjet 452. It's driving me crazy.
BTW - what is CUPS that Drew, the first commenter posted?
You can default the printer to duplex or any other by going through CUPS. From your web browser go to localhost:631 (you may get an error saying it's turned off, copy and paste the command into terminal) From here you can select your printer and change the default options to color/B&W, duplex, etc.
Make it easier to find how to turn off Duplex Printing. I have looked and looked and cannot find a box to check/uncheck. I can't seem to find how to turn it on/off (and I have looked in the Print Dialogue, Acrobat Preferences and Mac System Preferences) or how to flip the page the way I want to.
I'm using this version on a MacBook Pro (mid-2014):
Dialogue box should have simple command to print single or double sided on Mac.
Does not have and that creates wasted paper.
I, too am interested in this fix. Having to click 'Printer,' dismiss a dialog box, click OK, and then click 'Print' *every single time* is getting tiresome.
Any update as to when this might be fixed?
