Adobe Reader and Acrobat 10.1.2 default to printing on both sides of the paper (also know as printing back-to-back or duplex). Some users have reported issues with this default setting. The confusion often stems from printers that cannot automatically print on both sides. On these printers, it's necessary to reinsert the paper to print the other side. Common symptoms are:
- Printer light blinking when the job is received, but nothing prints.
- Printer asks to load paper even though there is plenty of paper in the tray. (Printer needs you to reinsert the printed pages.)
- Printer prints only odd- or even-numbered pages. (Printer needs you to reinsert the printed pages.)
