Print in reverse


Is there a way to make all KDE applications print in reverse when printing?

Regards,

Greg

You have to define what you want more clearly. What do you mean by 'reverse'? Do you want to mirror-image the document? Print from bottom to top? Print the pages from last page to first, or what?

In the KDE printer configuration tool, under the 'instances' tab, printer settings, there's a "filters" section. One of the filters offered is a page selection/page ordering function that seems to be able to reverse the printing order of the pages. There may be other filters available as well. You could set up a "virtual" printer instance with this filter enabled that should work with most programs.

Thanks

Sorry, I meant print the last page first.

I got it working thanks for your help. It saves me a lot of time now.

Regards,

Greg
