Double-sided printing

I want to print a long .pdf file using both sides of each page. i.e. The first piece of paper having p1 on the front and p2 on the back etc.
Adobe Acrobat Reader (v3.01) won't seem to let me print only odd or only even pages. Is there any way I can do this?

I'm using an Epson MJ-810C inkjet printer on a Windows 95 Compaq Presario 5224.

That program is 1.1 Megs and is a Demo/Eval version (of course).

Another way to accomplish the same thing is to print out the file once, then turn the pages over, add a blank piece of paper to the top then print again.  That will offset the printing by one page number, thus printing page 2 on the back of page 1, page 3 on back of page 2, etc..

You'll have 2 copies of the printout, and you'll have to re-sort the document after it is printed but it will work.

Even more options are available at www.download.com, under utilities|printers

You will find utilities to enable you to print multiple pages on 1 page, and even do booklet printing.

Have fun!

Thanks jrhelgeson. It looks like you've pointed me in the right direction. rtsduplex seems to start a new print job for each page - It's not a neat and tidy solution but it may be the only one. Perhaps a strongly worded e-mail to Adobe... It doesn't seem like a complex feature to add to the next version.

Peace, love, and happiness,
Lex.
