The Duplex option is missing from the Printer Setup dialog box if you run Microsoft Publisher version 1.0 with Windows NT.


This problem occurs because Publisher uses its own dialog template for the Printer Setup common dialog box. In Windows NT, the Duplex option moved to a different dialog box.

In Windows NT, Publisher displays its own dialog box so that you don't see the standard Windows NT printer setup dialog box (which contains the Duplex option).


To work around this problem, either:

  • Upgrade to Publisher version 2.0 -or-

  • Use Print Manager to create a printer for the device that is capable of duplex printing and use the printer properties in Print Manager to control the Duplex option.
