Under the Copy & Pages popup menu in the File/Print dialog box, choose Layout. At the bottom of the new dialog, you will see Two-sided:. Choose the one you want.Lobos said:Hi, I can't figure out how to print double sided using my MB. ...
Ah, there's the clue. The printer doesn't actually support two-sided printing. You PC accomplished it with a bit of software magic.i get the option for two-sided, but i can't click on it. i had a pc before and i could definitely print double-sided. when the odd pages printed, the printer told me to put the sheets back in flipped. but here, i dont even get the option to print odd or even pages. can someone help me with this? i'm more worried about the first issue than the first one.
Was having the same problem - but have now sorted it out... there is an option in the print screen for "Duplex Printing & Margin" (it's towards the bottom of the drop down).Originally Posted by DaMob
I have the same problem, I can't click on "double sided". ...

I know this is an old thread, but I thought I'd mention that this solved the issue for me.Just bought this printer and had the same problem as SpreadHead. I was able to get it working by temporarily changing the printer size to some other value than A4 or Letter, and then changing it back to Letter. When I went back to the 2-sided option, waaalaaa, it was no longer grayed out.
Hi there,As message above, I know is an old thread, but none of the suggestions before worked for me, so posting here what did:
From the "print" dialogue in any application go to
1. "Output settings" menu
2. On "two-sided Printing" change from off to Long or Short Edge-binding
3. Click "print"
This worked, even though the 'Two-sided" box in the main menu stayed greyed out.
I have also saved this using "save as" as a new preset, and it seems to remember it, to avoid doing this every time I want duplex.
Hope this helps, it was driving me crazy till found a solution.
