I actually have a solution ... YAY! I am using the HP Officejet Pro 8600 on a Windows 7 OS. I fixed the problem by going to the "print-setup" option in both ms word and ms publisher. Here is the sequence:
File => Print Set-up => Properties => Advanced => under document options, pages per sheet layout => click on arrow tab => select, "Left then Down" optin
That's it! It works everytime now for a landscape orientation. Play around with that setting for other page orientation and that should do the trick!!

What version of MS Word are you using? I have Microsoft Word 2010. On the file tab, I don't see anything that says Print-Set up & the rest of your flow.

Hello. I encountered this problem today while using my HP L7780, and trying to print from Windows XP / Adobe 7. I resolved it by using the following print setup sequence --- File Print, Printing Shortcuts, Customized Settings, Print on Both Sides - Automatically. If I did not use the "Automatically" setting... it would print the 2nd page upside down. DG

It was noted earlier that HP support does not pay attention to this thread because it is "self help". Since the view counter shows about 30 thousand other people have looked at this thread, it seems to me that HP should take their head out of the sand and spend some time fixing this issue.
Suggestions about changes to the following configuratoin to help fix the problem are welcome and encouraged. Thank you.
I have the same issue as everyone else. Here is my current configuration:
HP 4650 laserjet
Printing a PDF prepared by Canon as a camera user guide which was prepared landscape, two pages per page, first page is page one, second page contains pages 2 & 3, third page contains pages 4 & 5, etc.
Open PDF and it shows two pages per page landscape format
On file menu selected "print"
Print options are:
Pages to Print: All (or could have selected "pages" 1-236)
Comments & Forms: Document
Page Sizing & Handling: Booklet
Booklet subset: Both sides
Seets from: 1 to 59
Auto-rotate: not checked
Preview window shows landscape image with two pages visibile in portriat so I expect to be able to center staple the printed pages, center fold and have a booklet with right side up pages and in the proper sequence.
Page Setup ... (at bottom left)
Source: Automatically Select
Properties Button for printer displays HP printer control panel:
Printing Shortcuts Tab:
(Letter, Auto select, 1 page per sheet, both sides no, paper type unspecified, orientation portrait)
Resizing Options: Print document on "Letter"
Scale to fit: checked
Print on both sides: not checked
Pages per sheet: 1 page per sheet

I'm not sure who else has had problems with this.
I have written a booklet with A4 spreads, each containing 4 x A5 pages. The booklet was produced using Microsoft Publisher (Office 2010) and converted to PDF in Adobe Reader X.
Printing from Publisher:
At first, prints were alternately the right way up and upside down. As anyone experiencing this will be aware, this creates a mess of the document because of the page organisation.
I solved the problem by ensuring the following settings:
Page layout settings:
- Orientation - portrait
- Size - 1/2 A4 side fold
Page setup settings:
- Layout type - booklet
- Booklet, side-fold
- Print on both sides, flip sheets on short edge
Properties - paper/output tab:
- Job type - Normal print (Default)
- Paper - A4 (210 x 297 mm), white, plain (Default)
- 2-sided printing - 2-sided print, flip on short edge (IMPORTANT)
- Other settings to be left on default
I experienced the same problem in Adobe Reader after converting the document to PDF because the program does not recognise the print settings used in Publisher. For right-way-up double sided printing in booklet form, ensure the following settings:
- Go to Print...
- Click on Properties
- Select 2-sided print, flip on short edge
- Leave all other settings as default (unless specific requirement for your job such as colour printing)
- Any other changes to settings should be ok as default, change to suit your particular job
- Now ready to print
I found that when emailing others to print they needed instructions or else faced the prospect of printing a useless jumble of upside down and out of order pages.
I hope this guide helps, but I'm not sure how printing options differ with other printers. I'm networked to a Xerox Global Print Driver PS (for what it's worth) and based in the UK.
