Is there any way to create a sort of batch job for printing multiple documents in a certain order with varying settings for each document?

I would like to be able to print my company's entire employee orientation packet with one command. There are about 12 different documents in the packet, all MS Word and PDF files. I want to print them in order, some of them printed on two sides, others one side.

Are there any programs or scripting/batch languages that can do that?

The only batch program that I know of allows you to print different file types only. I don't know of an app that allows file type and setting changes combined, to create the master batch you're looking for. The only way I do know of to make that happen is, "Hello Kinko's How much does it cost to......??" :thumbsup::huh:

Well, I found a program that will suit my needs.

It's called Batch & Print Pro. As far as I can tell, it doesn't support different different settings for each document in the batch but it does allow you to create and save batch printing jobs with universal settings (in my case, two sided with staples for documents greater than 3 pages).

It's not exactly what I was looking for, but it'll do. :thumbsup:
