reverse printing

Is there an easy way to print a mirror image?  (Usefule when working with tranfer papers.)   Previous printers had that in their print settings, but I can't find it in my Officjet 8000.

Re: reverse printing

I do not have an Officejet 8000 to test but I did install the driver and tried it with my Photosmart 2610 .  It printed fine, at least for the test page I tried.  This would indicate the driver is compatible with PCL3GUI.  I would suggest the following: go to the Devices and Printers folder, right click on the Officejet 8000 and select Printer Properties, Ports and find the port the OJ 8000 is using.  Now exit from here, go back to the Devices and Printers folder and select Add a Printer.  Select the same port as previously found for the OJ 8000, then when the list of printers comes up click on "Windows Update".  After the list updates select the HP Deskjet 6500.

When you add the 6500 you can chose a different name such as OJ 8000 reverse.  The Deskjet 6500 driver offers the option for Mirror Image in the Finishing tab.  You can have both the Officejet 8000 and Deskjet 6500 drivers attached to the same port and then select the printer you want to use when you go to print.
