How to keep/concatenate single pages (and print them in duplex mode later)?


Extraordinary Member
I have a laser printer which is able to print in Duplex mode (front and flip/back side) which works fine.

Now assume I have 4 individual document pages (e.g. 4 *.pdf files or 4 Word *.doc files or 4 *.jpeg files)
which I want to print.

BUT: these 4 pages should NOT be printed on a physical paper page each.

Instead front and flip/back side should be printed. So for 4 logical pages the result should be 2 physical papers.

Now when I load the first file into whatever (editor) software and start printing then the print process starts immediately. So back side cannot be printed (I want to avoid to re-insert paper in printer tray).

How else can I tell the printer "Hey wait with printing until all papers are in your spooler and I tell you go"?

Even when I could manage somehow to hold automatic immediate printer spooling and resume it later all paper are printed individually.
So I need some additional option to tell the printer to append/concatenate all individual papers in spooler.

How can I do this?
