  3. Select Normal-size, Fit-to-Page, Scaled, or Page Layout from the Page Layout list.

  4. Specify the side to be stapled.

    The best Stapling Side is selected automatically from the Orientation and Page Layout settings. To change the setting, select another stapling side from the list.

  5. If necessary, click Specify Margin... and set the margin width, and then click OK.

  6. Click OK on the Page Setup tab.

    When you execute print, the document is first printed on one side of a sheet of paper. After one side is printed, reload the paper correctly according to the message.
    Then click Start Printing to print the opposite side.

 When a media type other than Plain Paper is selected from Media Type on the Main tab, Duplex Printing (Manual) appears grayed out and is unavailable.

 When Tiling/Poster or Booklet is selected from the Page Layout list, Duplex Printing (Manual) and Stapling Side appear grayed out and are unavailable.

 If the back side of the paper becomes smudged during duplex printing, perform Bottom Plate Cleaning in the Maintenance tab.

 To disable this function, follow the steps above, but remove the check from the Duplex Printing (Manual) check box in step 2. Then, click OK.
