Printing PDF with odd number of pages in duplex leaves back of page one blank instead of last page

MacBook Pro 15-inch 2018
macOS 10.14 Mojave

Product: OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus

OS: Mac OS X Mojave 10.14.

This happens ONLY in PDF (not Word or Preview) - if I print a document (or part of a document) with an uneven number of pages, the back of page one is blank instead of the back of the LAST page, as would be expected.  It really messes up some documents.  My workaround has been to print the last page separately, so I have an even number of pages for the rest, but that's unnecessarily burdensome for something that should be automatic.

 

Someone else listed this problem on 3-18-2018, but none of the solutions presented in the reply worked.

@solutionseeker

 

I have gone through your Post and I would like to help

 

This seems to be an issue with Adobe since the problem happens only with PDF files

 

May I know which App are you using to print those PDF files?

 

Please ensure your Mac and Printer have the latest updates

Also try printing using HP Smart App and let me know if that helps. Link: https://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c06188214
