No double-sided print option

Post by Dicky » Tue Mar 26, 2019 2:34 am

Can't see/find an option for double-sided printing (which works for me on other Softmaker software - e.g. the SoftMaker Office suite for Mac.

This is a big downside and a barrier for me to purchase right now.

Duplex print is handled by the printer driver, not FlexiPDF. You have to enable it in the print options in the print dialogue.

Hello

We are currently evaluating FlexiPDF2019 and our users have exactly the same request.

They are missing the double-sided print option in the first print dialog. We have to print allot of PDF documents but only about half of them double sided, it depends on the document and therefore always going in the properties menu of printer driver is no solution in our workflow.

It keeps us from purchasing a 10 User licence for our terminalserver environment.

Please consider to add this option.

Thank you

Hi, there's a trick you can do: you can create a duplicate of your printer in which the duplex is turned on.
Example:
Imagine you have an "HP 1000". You could create a copy of the printer called "HP 1000 - Duplex".
You could also create copies for different printer settings, for example: HP 1000 - Black & White"

Good idea, we will try this.

Thanks!
