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.

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.
If my post resolve your problem please mark it as an Accepted Solution 🙂

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.

Doesn't work with MS word for MAC 2011 version 14.4 .5 on my Mac OS X 10.9.5 as options available in Two-Sided drop down menu are Long edge binding and short edge binding...
Would appreciate help on this..thanks.

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.
