Print double-sided | Acrobat, Reader or earlier

Adobe Acrobat and Acrobat Reader support double-sided printing if your printer has this feature. Printer options are managed by the printer driver, not by Acrobat or Reader. Refer to your printer's manual to confirm support for double-sided (duplex, back-to-back, front and back, or two-sided) printing.

Configure CUPS interface settings for double-sided printing on macOS

In macOS, printer settings override those in Acrobat or Acrobat Reader. If double-sided printing issues occur in Acrobat or Acrobat Reader, adjust the settings via the Mac 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.

Print double-sided using a single-sided printer

If your printer doesn't support double-sided printing, you can manually print your document using both sides of the paper. The steps vary depending on the way the printer feeds and outputs the pages. Print a few test pages following the instructions to understand how to feed the pages back into the printer.

Printer outputs paper face-down

If your printer outputs pages face-down and in numerical order (starting with page one), which is typical for laser printers, follow these instructions.

  1. In Acrobat or Acrobat Reader, choose the hamburger menu   (Windows) or the File menu (macOS) > Print.

  2. Select Reverse pages and choose Even pages only in the Pages to Print section of the Print dialog. In this scenario, the Reverse Pages option ensures that the page sequence is correct.

  3. Select Print.

  4. If the total number of pages is odd, add a blank sheet so the final odd page has a sheet to print on.

  5. Put the stack of printed paper back into the supply (source) paper tray so that the unprinted sides print. Point the top of the pages toward the printer. Make sure that the edges of the paper stack are square.

  6. Choose the hamburger menu   (Windows) or the File menu (macOS) > Print, and select Odd pages only in the Pages to Print section of the Print dialog box. (Do not select Reverse Pages this time.)

  7. Select Print.

Printer outputs paper face-up

  2. Choose Even pages only in the Pages to Print section of the Print dialog.

  3. Select Print.

  4. If the total number of pages is odd, add a blank sheet so the final odd page has a sheet to print on.

  5. Put the stack of printed paper back into the supply (source) paper tray so that the unprinted sides print. Point the top of the pages toward the printer. Make sure that the edges of the paper stack are square.
