Print shop mail printing issue - using Mac

Print shop mail printing issue - using Mac - 09/14/10 12:47 PM

I am printing from Mac using Mail 5.4
Printing 2 up on 18 x12 - 2 fronts and 2 backs.
when I preview it is perfect. when I printed entire file of 1660 records
it printed 1 front and 1 back side by side.
I reprinted 200 records and it printed just fine - but anything over 200 records
and it prints 1 front and 1 back side by side.
Why is this?

Hi Dennis,

I would suggest opening up another Web Support and including those files so that we can test and see why this is happening.

Most times this will happen if you have an uneven number of records. But in your case all is setup properly.

thanks,

Marc

Thank you Marc,

I think it is an uneven number of records also and I am testing that now.
the number 1600 was incorrect I rechecked and it was 1669.

It appears that it must be an even number of records and an even number
of sheets. I just printed 752 records and they worked great - had 6 records left
over to print - so those came out 2 up side by side - so I am printing those
head to foot. seems odd so If any good ideas please let me know.

It sounds like PSM doesn't know you're printing duplex.

In that case PSM will make no effort to keep certain layouts together. Assuming 'Front to Back' has the highest priority (the default setting), the sequence of layouts in the output will depend on the number of sheets, which in turn depends on the number of records.

It might help if you set Preferences > Repetition > Duplex Mode to 'Flip on Long Edge'. The default setting 'Based on driver settings' is not guaranteed to work because not all drivers actually let PSM know that they have been configured to print duplex.
