Unable to print double sided using Adobe on Mac Lion with OfficeJet Pro 800 Wireless

Have a Mac Lion 10.7.5 with OfficeJet Pro 8000 Wireless and Adobe 10.1.4. I can print just fine using Safari, but when having to use Adobe, there is no feature allowing me to print double sided on any pdf files.  The Printer Accessory Duplexer is  checked off in System Preference.

Hi,

From Adobe open the print dialog.

Click the Printer... button and confirm the prompt.

From the bottom drop-down select Layout ans set the Two-Sided printing.

 

You may save a preset to easily set the option in feuture use and keep the settings as default, the latest used preset will remain default till another one will be selected.

Say thanks by clicking the Kudos thumb up in the post.

Thank you for helping me out with this, but Im still missing something.  I wanted to print my bank stmt today, for example,  and the print dialog box doesn't seem to look the same as what you're descibing.  The Print dialog box I see has 4 boxes in center of box:  Page Sizing and Handling.  First box is Size, Second is Poster, Third is Multiple and 4th is Booklet.  Then it gives me size options and orientation.  When I click on Print, it prints and gives me no option for double-sided.  The only time I see the Layout and Two-Sided option is when I'm printing in Preview or Word.

The suggestions don't work. The two-sided printing is grayed out. It says that it can't do two-sided printing with this choice of paper size and type. It is set on letter size paper (what's wrong with that?) but, it won't let me change paper type. All choices are grayed out except HP Premium Photo Paper.
