  • Bug Collate button not working

    I have foxit reader 5.1.4.0104 and the collate button remains greyed out. I have a multiple page document with ALL pages set to print. When I set copies to 2 or more the collate button remains greyed out. Is this a bug or is there some setting I need to change to get the collate button to be active?
    Thanks, Ron

      Upgrade to what? 5.1.4.0104 is the latest version of foxit reader available to download.

      Thanks, Ron

        Hi Ron,

        If the copies are more than one, the Collate button will be actived, would you mind uninstalling it manually and reinstalling it then give it a try?
        BTW, we will release V5.3 soon.

          The collate button should be active but it is not. That is the problem.

          Can you point me to instructions for manually uninstalling? I am not sure what all needs to be done to manually uninstall the program.

          Thanks, Ron

            I would like to try the suggestion of manually uninstalling. I searched the forum and found many entries suggesting this to others but still no mention of what foxit reader requires to manually uninstall. I greatly appreciate any suggestions but with out letting me know how to execute the suggestion it is pretty useless. So until then I am stuck with adobe reader since we require collate to get our work done.
            Thanks, Ron

              Hi rgtech,

              Please go to Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs to uninstall your existing Foxit Reader then download a new installer from our website and give it a try: http://www.foxitsoftware.com/downloads/

                cherry,
                I used the control panel to uninstall and installed a newly downloaded foxit reader. After some testing I found that my local printer HP laserjet 2100 is the only one that foxit reader will not enable the collate button. I deleted and reinstalled the printer but no change. I looked through the properties and preferences of the printer but found nothing to change that would relate to collate. When printing more than 1 copy the pages don't collate so it is not like the printer is handling this. Adobe reader does enable the collate button for this printer so I don't know why foxit reader does not? Is there some setting in foxit reader that disables the collate button on some printers?
                Thanks for all your help, Ron

                    Foxit 4.3 still does not enable the collate button for my hp laserjet 2100 printer.

                    Attached are the computer and printer info files.

                    Let me know if there is anything you need to help get this working.

                    Thanks, Ron
