I have a Canon PIXMA MG5220 printer that allows me to do "duplex" printing, which just basically prints on both sides of the paper automatically. I do a great deal of printing of 2 page MS Excel 2007 spread sheets that I print on one side, then I have to go to the printer to turn the sheet that just printed around and reinsert it in the printer so that the second page will be 180 degrees from the first page. This is for insertion in file folders that you punch the two holes in the top of, then attach the sheets and just lift up the bottom of the sheet to see page 2, so you don't have to turn the whole folder over. Is there any way that I can set it up to automatically print them that way? Thanks much for any help you can give me.

Duplex printing
by: Anonymous

I read that the printer has automatic duplex printing features. Each printer is different... I would assume that the duplex features can be changed by selecting Print (not quick print) from your Excel spreadsheet then select properties from the print window. This will open more options to make changes to the way your spreadsheet is printed. For the HP printer I have the option for duplex printing is called "print on both sides" use the drop down arrow to make the selection.
