I am trying to print a PDF booklet on our Konica Minolta. The machine will print dual-sided, and you set this option in the 64-bit printer settings on each computer.

I have been printing PDFs as booklets (magazine proofs) for years using Adobe Reader and the Konica Minolta Bizhub.

However now my entire booklet (8 1/2 x 14 saddle-stitch) prints as a 1-inch rectangle in the corner of the page - and in reverse!

I tried the same pdf on a different machine (both are Windows 7 x64) using the exact same print settings, exact same printer drivers and exact same version of Adobe Reader X (10.1.4), and it prints just fine.

I only have this problem with Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat (version 9). Something on my machine is screwy with the Adobe pdf products. I can print double-sided booklets just fine from Adobe InDesign.

Where is my problem, and how can I fix this?

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the print driver? – Pete Dec 20 '12 at 19:40
have you contacted adobe? – mdpc Dec 20 '12 at 19:43
Have I contacted Adobe? No. That will my last resort. The print driver, no, I haven't. But I can print just fine from other programs. It's just when I print from Adobe Reader/Acrobat - do you think reinstalling the print driver would make a difference in that case? – bgmCoder Dec 20 '12 at 20:12

First I found out the my computer was the only one that had this problem. So I finally installed Adobe Reader XI over top the existing version and it seems to have resolved the issue.

My windows 10 machine does this on any application if I tick 'Choose paper source by PDF page size'. The only work around that I have found is to manually select the paper size and orientation that I require each time I try to print. It did exactly the same when I was running Windows 7.
