macOS FMP print step won't save duplex setting

Mac OS 10.12


Xerox and HP printers


Longstanding (years) scripts with print steps where printer settings are saved have suddenly stopped duplex printing and retaining the setting to duplex print. No problems with this issue until we moved to macOS 10.12 and FMP which is compatible with 10.12 if I read the documentation correctly.


The printer selected for use does not change the behavior.


I have tried to edit the settings and save to re-select the duplex box. On opening the saved print settings again the duplex box is not checked.


I have tried making new scripts with only page setup and print settings and cannot get the duplex print box to stay selected.


We have been accustomed to printing multipage documents for years without interaction and are now having trouble reversing that and selecting duplex manually.
