While I don't use MS Office anymore and have stuck with OpenOffice.org for many years now, so why not have the option to print odd or even pages available when you select print, instead of having to choose options and the right or left.
We're just other users here -- it's a user-to-user forum -- so we can't really answer to why any of the design decisions were made. All we can do is help others to use the software as it exists today.

That issue is only targeted for "OOo later" so you could add your vote and comments. I'm surprised it's not a higher priority, since so many people do not have duplex printers and do print only one side at a time.
