Greetings, i am creating a small booklet in Publisher.  My problem?  When i print the pages double sided, the back side prints "upside down" - no matter what i try to do (short of rotating the back 180 degrees.   Any idea as to why its doing this?

Thanks for any help!

Examples, screenshots, even the file will help more, also what printer you have and on which Operating System.

Why not just rotate the back 180 degrees! How you do double sided printing will depend on the capabilities of your printer!

Does your printer driver have/offer finer grade settings for double side printing?  - What printer (manufactor + model) do you use?

In the double sided printing option there will be a long side / short side setting. Choose the one that is not selected.

I've been struggling with this problem too with my Epson XP 900 printer, didn't make any difference what the setting was and it happened in Word documents as well as Affinity. I contacted Epson and apparently it was due to using a "generic" driver (although it was Epson), I was given a link to a new driver which once installed prints documents correctly. 🙂
