User profile for user: Mulder Mulder. Jun 19, PM in response to chombi3 In response to chombi3 Unless your printer supports two-sided printing, those options will always be grayed out.
You would have to manually duplex the file to accomplish this. Reply Helpful Thread reply - more options Link to this Post.
Jun 19, PM in response to chombi3 In response to chombi3 I checked the specs on this printer, and double-sided printing is NOT supported. Maybe you're confusing that with printing two images or pages side by side on the paper?
How to Print Double Sided on Mac
If that's the case, then you can select that from the Copies and Pages section of the Print dialog box. With the correct driver loaded there is an option called Duplex Printing that you use to print two-sided.
You cannot use the Layout tab. Note that when you print duplex, the printer will first print on the front side of the paper before feeding the paper back in and around the Duplex Unit.
Regards, Paul. On my Windows PC's I use the Fineprint utility, which does a great job of helping me print on both sides of the paper in by standard laser printer.
I'm looking for some tool to help me accomplish this goal on the MAC as well.
Why can't I print double sided?
Anyone solved this "simple" need? Macbook 13" Mac OS X Jul 16, PM in response to JBinKC In response to JBinKC If you do not have a printer that supports duplexing, the only way you can print duplex is to print one side of the page, then flip them over and print the other side.
No utility on either a Mac or a PC can change this. In order to do this, you print the even pages, usually in reverse order, then flip them over and place them back in the printer, and print the odd pages in regular order.
Useful Tips on Printing Double Sided PDF
The options for doing this are in the Print User profile for user: Peter Ragone1 Peter Ragone1. Jul 16, PM in response to chombi3 In response to chombi3 Yes, the usual double-sided option under "Layout" is greyed out. That's the way Canon wrote their driver for the MacOS, and it's the case for some other printer company's printer models as well hp, for example.
User profile for user: Ewen Ewen. You're right on track. This is exactly what I want to do. So far, I find few if any programs on the MAC that let me do this.
Fineprint on the Windows PC made this pretty easy Printing both sides, printing two-up, printing landscape, etc. I assumed that there would be something similar on the MAC. I have downloaded Adobe Reader, and am disappointed that it is not Universal code yet.
