I have created a report using the editor but I am unable figure out a way to rotate the output by 180 degrees. I need to be able to do this so I can print the report to paper sleeves.
I have tried multiple printers but there always seem to be issues with feeding the sleeve in the printer. Either it gets stuck or doesn't pick up properly or prints crooked.
I need to be able to feed the sleeves "upside down" to avoid the feeding problems but the report then prints upside down on the sleeve (closing tab is on the bottom when text is right side up).
Can anyone point me in the right direction? Can someone design such a layout?
Let me know if this is not clear enough and I will try to provide more info

I'm not sure if this would solve your problem, but perhaps the printer's duplex mode (for double sided printing) could be made to simulate what you want???

The other idea would be, if you have a scanner. Go ahead and print the report, then turn it upside down in the scanner and then print on the sleeve. Does that work?
Thanks for your support.

Is your problem the flipped print, or...
is your problem to have some printer handle your type of sleeve correctly?

In the latter case, it would be helpful to name your printer and its capabilities and to name the sort of sleeves you want to use.

In the first case, have you tried redirecting the DVD Profiler output to a PDF file (there are numerous ways to do this), then use Acrobat Reader (free) to do the actual printing?
Apart from your printer capabilities there are quite a few tricks available in Reader (see the Print... window), apart from duplex printing, creating Booklets with or without auto-rotated pages, etc. It might do your trick.

By the way, Welcome to the forums!

If it is important, say it. Otherwise, let silence speak.

mediadogg,
Thanks for your input.

eommen,
Great minds think alike

I have figured out a way to accomplish what it is I am aiming for.
What I did was print the report to my pdf writer and use it to rotate the pages. I am then able to print the pages with the desired result.

Thanks
