So today I had to print a project, PDF file, 20 pages.
I chose my printer, 4 pages per sheet, Left to Right > Top to Bottom so I would have pages 1 2 3 and 4, all on one sheet of A4 paper and in order. I hit print and the result was a messed up order of the pages, it printed 4 3 1 2 as you read them from left to right, top to bottom. I have tried all the settings in the Options tab of Okular, nothing would change the messed up order. Selecting 2 pages per sheet does the same thing, it ignores the order. I then thought “let me reverse the option, maybe it will work”, so I selected Left to Right, Bottom to Top, Right to Left, etc, NONE worked. I then opened the PDF using Firefox’s integrated PDF reader and same thing happens.
Hi, I’m not sure that this will help, at least not directly. In those cases, I have found it useful to install the “cups-pdf” printer. That prints to a pdf file (with the options you choose). Sometimes it will get things right when the printer’s driver doesn’t. And if not, at least you won’t be wasting paper. HTH Lenwolf
