Print_double-sided

Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat let you print double-sided if your printer supports that feature. The printer driver controls the options, not Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader. Check your printer documentation to see what features your printer supports. (Double-sided printing is also called duplex, back to back, front and back, or two-sided printing.)


(Mac) Print double-sided in Acrobat DC, Acrobat Reader DC

Currently, the print settings in macOS take precedence over the print settings in Acrobat or Acrobat Reader. When you try to print double-sided in Acrobat or Acrobat Reader, the printer does not print as per the specified settings in Acrobat/Reader. Therefore, you have to configure the print settings using the CUPS admin interface in Mac.

Configure the print settings in CUPS admin interface

CUPS (formerly known as Common UNIX Printing System) is a network printing service used by Mac computers. It allows you to set up your printers on a network, and customize printer options. By default, the CUPS web interface is disabled on Mac. 

Pastaba:

The settings specified in the CUPS interface overrides the print settings in Acrobat or Acrobat Reader.
