Printing on both sides of the paper
Even though ink is a lot more expensive than paper, printing double sided can save you money and help to preserve the environment. If your home or office printer supports duplexing, this is very easy to achieve automatically. Printers capable of printing on both sides of the paper are usually more expensive, but manually printing double sided sheets can be time consuming, so the extra cost could be justified if you print often enough. If you need to print double sided manually you will need to use the process below:
1. Firstly, you will need to determine which side of the paper your machine prints on. Mark a sheet of paper with a pen and then print a test page if you aren’t sure. If you do not use your printer very often it would be a good idea to take a note of the orientation of the printed sheet so you will remember in the future.
2. Once you have determined which way the printer will orient the pages, select print from the file menu and manually enter all the odd page numbers, for example 1,3,5,7,9 etc … click OK and allow all of the pages to finish printing.
4. Repeat step 2, but this time enter even numbers.
You may be able to select ‘odd numbered’ or ‘even numbered’ pages only from the file menu, on most Mac Operating systems this is under ‘Copies and Pages’>>Paper handling.’
