set default to duplex printing

Any news on setting duplex as the default in Mac OS, it's really annoying.

set default to duplex printing

Hi,
Please follow the steps below in order to automatically print two-sided print jobs:

From the file used to print click the File menu and select Print.
NOTE: The Print window might be minimized. Press on Show Details to show any available print option.

In the expanded Print window you will find next to Copies the checkbox for Two-Sided. Check the box.
NOTE: If the checkbox does not appear within the specific application print dialog, skip this step.

To select the binding type click the lowest selection box listed as the name of the program (e.g. TextEdit)
Will appear as Copies & Pages within Microsoft Office applications.

Select Layout from the drop-down menu.

Set the Two-Sided option as Long-Edge binding (Portrait), or Short-Edge binding (landscape).

You may save the settings for future use by clicking Presets > Save Current Settings as Preset... Any used preset will remain default till another preset will be used.

 

If you experience further difficulties, be sure to clarify your exact printer model.


Regards,
Shlomi

I followed your instructions to save the settings and created a preset of 'duplex'.  It is not saved as the default until you print with it, but it's now working.

So thank you, a lot of frustration solved.  A pity Microsoft Office has to go its own way and be so unlike other Mac applications.
