Just brought a newly-minted Dorico score to a recording session yesterday only to discover that all the even pages were upside down (the document was in landscape mode). I’m using an HP LaserJet Professional P1606dn printer, the kind that automatically re-feeds the page to print on the other side before continuing to the next physical page.
I’ve since been further experimenting with the print settings in Dorico’s Print Mode to see if I can get it to print things properly and I’m stumped: I currently have it set to “Collate copies”, and since there’s no way to turn off “Duplex Printing”, I have tried different combinations of “Print On” (one side only", “flip automatically”, etc. since I’m not sure how the program is interacting with the default behavior of my actual printer), and each time, the even pages are upside down.
Strangely, I though that one workaround might be to use the Print Mode’s print to Graphics function (exporting as a pdf) instead of trying to print directly to my printer. However, I tried this using a test of 5 pages. When I opened the resulting pdf in my Mac’s Preview program, they appeared properly oriented in the preview window. However, when I printed them (with “auto-rotate” off and “two-sided” checked), they STILL printed the even pages upside down (!) (and I got the same result with “auto-rotate” on) - utterly baffling.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
