While printing on both sides of the paper, whether you choose "flip short side" or "flip long side" under "double sided" in layout tab of print menu, the output is in the same direction.

Hi Vijayanand.L

I've just tried this and the duplex print flips correctly on the side I set. Firtly I shall take it you have a duplex printer and secondly are you able to provide a file that demonstrates the issue

1.7.0.162 does not have that problem for me, at least not on my initial test with a single printer and a single, two-page, letter-sized document. Several releases ago, there were some problems with it doing the opposite of what I selected there, though. Are you running build 162? If so, can you give instructions on how you can reproduce this from a new document?

I do see what is probably a bug related to this, though: the print dialog does not remember your double-sided selection. Most applications, if you print the same thing twice without ever closing the application, the second time will have the settings pre-filled identically to what you selected the last time you printed. For instance, if I print a document in Word with two-sided printing selected, then make a quick edit and hit Ctrl-P to print again, two-sided printing will still be selected. Right now in Affinity Publisher, I have to explicitly re-select double-sided printing each time.

Yes its working fine in build 162. I was running the previous version. After I installed 162 and tried it out, its fine. Thanks for the quick response.

When I add ups and include crop marks, its not visible in the preview. Any chance of a larger print preview window? As a digital print shoppe, we continuously need to print jobs of multiple sizes on a 13x19 inch paper size with n-ups and double side printing.

Since, my machine does not come with a rip software, it will be easier if we can do the print layout and preview in APub itself.

Regards,

Vijay
