    Is it possible to set two-sided printing as the default in the dialog box that appears for printing? At the moment I have to select 'Layout' in the drop down menu and select two-sided printing (either long-edged or short-edged binding) each time. Any help would be great. Thanks

    I was trying to figure the same thing out today, and found your post. I eventually figured out what I think is an answer:

    After setting two-sided, click on the "presets" drop-down menu and save your changes under a new preset name (I called mine "Two Sided"). I also decreased my ink drying time so it would reverse sides faster.

    Each time I try to print, it's defaulting to my new preset. Not sure what will happen when I reboot, but I'm hoping it'll stay with the new preset.
