I already found that this printer does not support A5 duplexing. Because is buried deep in support pages a will just repeat it here: you have to flip it manualy, which is a shame.

Why is that, because of A3 capable duplexer?

The automatic duplex mechanism that flips sheet can't handle to narrow paper.

Could you put A5 paper in paper tray in “landscape” mode?
Would it be too short then or would it work?

You would probably have to fiddle with paper size then.

Well I tried "landscaping" the A5 paper and it turned it, so it can duplex A5. Now I have to figure how to add custom paper size. I tried this: https://support.hp.com/lv-en/document/c03890386 and I cannot select new custom size from the print menu although it is in print server properties.

Any suggestions?
