Incorrect staple position when printing

issue description

When printing landscape, the finisher only staples pages in the upper right or lower left-hand corners. When printing in portrait mode, however, the finisher appears to staple the upper left-hand corner as expected

To summarize these steps for .pdfs and Power Point files:

  • Enable Reverse page order, Rotate 180 and Print on both sides.
  • Turn on Generate PostScript in driver so that "Reverse Page Order" will work


  • Windows 7 Client
  • Server 2012 R2
  • MS Powerpoint: 2010
  • PDF version : adobe Reader 11
  • Lexmark UPD v2 XL (
  • Tray 1 - A4
  • Lexmark X950de
  • Base: LHS41.TQ.P449
  • Connection Network
  • Base printer Firmware LHS42.TQ.P583
