For two years or more I have produced a low volume (approx 50) monthly newsletter using Publisher. Usually this consists of 4 sides but I have always used the "manual duplex print" & "two pages per sheet" options to produce a centre folded, double-sided A5 booklet in full colour.
Until recently I have used HP printers without too many problems, but recently I purchased an Epson R265 and found that the printing order options couldn't cope with this basic requirement. I overcame that by simply removing the page numbers in Publisher and re-ordering the pages so that Page 4 become page 2 and vice versa. Now, however I have lost the reverse side option. It's just disappeared from the properties!Am I going crazy? Phil

Re: Lost reverse side printing option
The double sided printing option relies on Status monitor working correctly. If information cannot travel from the printer to the computer, the option will be greyed out.
Make sure you have a direct connection to the computer without any hubs. If that doesn't work, try the following.
1. Open START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS 2. Right click on your Epson printer name, and click CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS. 3. Confirm cancelling all documents. 4. Right click on the Printer again, and select DELETE.
1) Click on START, SETTINGS and CONTROL PANEL. 2) Double click on the SYSTEM folder and select the Device Manager tab. 3) Click on the "+" for "Universal Serial Bus Controller" 4) Right click on "USB Printing Support" and select "Uninstall" and confirm it 5) Disconnect the USB cable and reconnect it.

If you are trying to print this from your computer to the IMAGERUNNER 3530 Copier,
you need to access the "page setup" portion of the program you are
using to produce the original artwork. If you are using "Publisher" or
"Photoshop", for example, go to "File", Page Setup and change the paper
size to 11" X 17". You will also need to tell it which tray in the IMAGERUNNER 3530 Copier you have put paper into.
If you are up-sizing the page from a previous size (ie: 8.5" X 11 or
8.5" X 14") you need to use the enlarge feature to scan into the IMAGERUNNER 3530 Copier and output to 11" X 17".
Let me know if I can be of any additional assistance.
Publisher is a program that makes it easier to make "posters" and "brochures" and "newsletters".
Start the program. Click "New". Click "start a new FLYER", or "start a new BROCHURE", or "start a new NEWSLETTER", to use some of the pre-defined templates that define the layout of your publication (fan-fold, multi-column, et cetera).
The Brother DCP-7030 supports manual duplex only. When choosing duplex (2-sided) printing, it will print the even-numbered pages first and prompts you to reinsert the pages in a different orientation.
To correctly print the second side of your brochure, you could do one of two things:
Reverse the orientation of the paper when you reinsert if for the second side of printing.
Reverse the direction of the second page in Publisher.
The first option is simple enough. When the Brother driver directs you to insert the paper for the second side, insert it in a rotated position. It should be on the same side, but rotated 180 degrees.
The second option is also easy, but if you want to edit the document in the future, it will involve in some work before being able to edit it.
In Publisher, select all of the objects on the page (pressing "Ctrl" and "A" on your keyboard at the same time will accomplish this).
Right-click on an object on the page.
Your objects are now grouped into one item.
There should be a green dot at the halfway point at the top of the group. You can click and drag this dot until the object is rotated 180 degrees. Alternatively, you could go to the menu and choose "Arrange>Rotate or Flip>Rotate Left 90 degrees" twice.
Now when you print, you should follow the Brother driver directions when flipping the paper.
In the File name list, type or select a name for the publication.
In the Save as type list, click PDF.
Next to Optimize for, click Change.
In the Publish Options dialog box, click the optimization in the Specify how this publication will be printed or distributed list that matches the needs of the publication. For example, if the publication will be distributed online and print quality is less important than a small file size, click Minimum size. If the quality of the printing is more important than file size, click High quality printing.
Click Advanced to display the entire dialog box, and select the settings that you need. (Find links to more information on these options in the See Also section.)
In the Save As dialog box, if you want to open the file immediately after saving it, select the Open file after publishing check box. This check box is available only if you have a PDF reader installed on your computer, and if the Commercial Press option is not selected in the Publish Options dialog box.
