if your page layout is horizontal, I found i had to change it to horizontal in the print setup/ properties/ layout tab. I had the same problem.
Hope this helps!!

I have a very large PDF file that contains 8.5x11 and 11x17. I am trying to print double sided am having issues making everything the right side up. I think the main issue is the 'Flip on short edge' and 'Flip on long edge' status is no consistent. I want to flip the 8.5x11 on the long edge while flip the 11x17 on the short edge. Essentially what I need is an option to flip on the 11" side everytime. Any Suggestions?
Also, I need to keep it in one pdf file and have the ability to print it properly all at once.

I have an ageing but perfectly operating HP Colour Laserjet 8550DN and in recent weeks I have a total nightmare printing duplex.
Every time I have a document (PDF) that is landscape, it prints the second side upside-down. I have tried changing to flip on short edge from the flip on long edge (default) in the settings, but wherever it is set, it prints it wrong.
If I print using my k*d*k inkjet, that does the duplex print properly - but I want to use the HP because of the superior output and speed (and the matter that it's ink that runs when it gets damp!).
What's really annoying is that it doesn't matter if I print with this machine (a HP Pro-Book 4150, Win7) or with our other machine at home (a custom built box running Ubuntu 12.04LTS).
To say that it's driving me insane is an understatement!

When printing a Adobe PDF document in duplex mode:
1) Select "Print on both sides of paper"
2) Select "Flip on short edge"
I don't know why "Flip on long edge" is the default as that makes the second edge upside down.
