Disable duplex printing on HP7520 Mac OS X

How do I disable duplex printing on the HP7520 in Mac OS X? All updates are installed. Only Text Edit offers a Two-Sided check box in Printer Details. I cannot find a way to turn it off in Word or in an Adobe Acorbat pdf file. Two hours with HP tech support tonight to no avail. I have read the Windows resolution to this question but I need to fix it on the HP7520 in Mac OS X. Thanks.

Hi,

From word open the print dialog and click the Copies & Pages. select Layout from the menu and then set the Two-Sided as off.

You may click the Preset drop-sown ansd save the setting as a preset, then it will remain as defautl till another preset will be used.

 

From Adobe open the print dialog and click the Print... button, then click the lowest drop-down and select Layout, the Two-sided option will appear there.

It works from Word and PDF but not from Power Point.  The only way i could get it to not print two sided in Power Point was to save the ppt file as a pdf file and print it from pdf preview (on my Mac).  If you know a solution right from Power Point I'd enjoy getting it.  Thanks.

I am having the similar issue in PPT. I'm using 10.8.4.

 

I'm pasting in a screen shot of what shows up when I click "Layout" in PPT. Thanks for any guidance - this is driving me 

crazy!

My Word Office 14.4.7 drop down options in Print mode>> Layout>>long edge binding also has an option for "turn off." Turn that off. It worked for me.

I finally found a solution that worked for me and my Macbook Pro, but it involved changing the defaults in the CUPS settings. This page has a step by step walk through of how to do it, using Terminal and CUPS. Haven't had an issue since and the check box for optional 2 sided printing has returned in most of my programs.
