How do I Print two-sided the same orientation on a Mac?

Answered by John Hunt

To print on both sides of the paper with the same orientation on a Mac, you can follow these steps:

1. Start by opening the document or file you want to print. This could be a Word document, PDF, or any other file type.

2. Next, go to the File menu at the top left corner of your screen and click on “Print.” This will open the print settings dialog box.

3. In the print settings dialog box, you will see various options for printing. Look for the section that says “Copies & Pages” and click on it.

4. From the drop-down menu that appears, select the option that says “Layout.” This will bring up additional options related to the layout of your print.

5. In the layout options, you will find a setting called “Two-Sided.” Click on this option to enable double-sided printing.

6. Once you’ve selected the two-sided option, you will see two sub-options: “Long-Edge binding” and “Short-Edge binding.” Choose the appropriate option based on how you want the pages to flip when printing.

– If you want the pages to flip like a book along the longer edge, select “Long-Edge binding.”
– If you want the pages to flip like a notepad along the shorter edge, select “Short-Edge binding.”

7. After selecting the desired binding option, review the other print settings such as the number of copies, page range, and paper size to ensure they are set correctly.

8. click the “Print” button to start the printing process. Your Mac will now print the document with two-sided printing and the chosen binding orientation.

Remember to load enough paper into your printer’s paper tray to accommodate the entire document. Also, keep in mind that not all printers support automatic double-sided printing, so make sure your printer is capable of this feature.

I hope these steps help you successfully print your document on both sides of the paper with the same orientation. If you encounter any issues or have any further questions, feel free to ask.
