Thanks Borries, I had to interrupt this but may get back to it today.
One other thing that I noticed was that it printed 1/2 of pg 22 then
skipped 3 blank pgs but not knowing this when I flipped over to print
the odd numbered it failed to print pg 23 but then it also skipped those
3 blanks and resumed with pg 25 on back of 24 this threw off the
Left/Right pagination. I think since I would not mind having a hard
copy I will try reprinting the entire book and see what happens. I had
a mild heart attack but I am feeling better just bit weak.
I am going to look at the logs now first then reset them before the next try
Thanks to all & Merry Christmas
