Has this function changed from 6.0 to 6.1?
When I enter 100 copies for each of two layouts it will print 100 of the first before starting on the second, in 6.0 it would alternate(or cycle) through layouts until the number of copies entered have printed.

Do I have the option to switch back to cycle?

There are no other option settings for NOC.

Try this:

* Set Number of Copies to "1" for each Layout.
* File > Print > Copies > Number of Copies > "100" > Print

But that will just print 100 copies of each record, why would I need that?

I guess I'll go back to 6.0..

Try checking your printer's drivers and see if it has a sort, group or collate feature. Sounds to me like you had it on, but now it may have been checked off.

Thanks - tried that. I still have 6.0 installed and it previews and outputs layouts collated, 6.1 does not, regardless of printer driver selected.

I have tested it, and 6.0 and 6.1 do behave differently in regards to the number of copies per layouts, thus confirming JT's problem.

In 6.0, if you have two layouts with 100 copies each, it will alternate 100 times between the two layouts for every records in the database.

In 6.1, it will print the first layout 100 times, and then the second one 100 times for each records.

Now, not sure which one is the intended behavior, but both versions do not behave the same way. Can anyone confirm which one is the intended behavior?

It means now I can produce the books I enquired about in an earlier post and the ones I am currently working on by switching from 6.0 to 6.1 smile

The behavior of 6.0 was the intended behavior, something went wrong in 6.1.

In 6.2 we will make sure that the layout order corresponds with the collate setting in the print dialog. When collate is on, we will alternate between layouts. When collate is off, layout copies will be sequential.

Is there any update on this? We are in the process of setting up our PSW and the files created are un-collated.

I have the solution;

Changing the Mirroring option from 'based on driver settings' to 'flip on long edge' under repetition in preferences has fixed this.

Thanks to Bob Mitton of Objectiflune UK for this. wink

I am having the same problem as JT at the top of this thread. Any fix? Or how can I get my hands on six to do a roll back.

You can install 6.0 and 6.1 at the same time but be careful which one you open the document in (I drag files onto desktop icon)

Did you try the fix I mentioned above your post?
