Description Unknown 2002-12-06 16:22:57 UTC
Since the standard method of printing for most people is using a printer capable
only of one-sided printing, most printed documents (at least at the personal
level) are not in book format, as seems to assume all will be. 
Unless you're printing two-sided, there is no "left" and "right"; thus, with
documents intended to be printed in the usual fashion, the practice of assuming
a "left" and "right" can cause problems, including incorrect page counts.

If two-sided printing were more common, this might be more reasonable, but at
the very least, there should be an option to stop considering pages as "left"
and "right" and just treat them like they're going to be printed in a stack, in
a style more similar to a manuscript than a book.
