Don't you get the option to select print first page last in the print dialogue box?

Hi

Print Dialogs vary a little depending what package you are trying to print from. Always have a look for box to check that says Reversed or Reverse pages.

In OpenOffice click on Print and select Options and then Reversed. In Adobe Reader, click on Print and check Reverse Pages under Print Range.

Hope that helps

Mark

There is. Click on Print and then Reverse which is down on the bottom right of the print menu.
