Duplex printing in Word 2007

In Word 03 you could manual duplex and set the first or second side to print
in reverse order. Is that still an option in 07? How do you access it?

RE: Duplex printing in Word 2007

I figured it out. In Word, go to the office button. At the bottom of the
window is a button marked, "Word Options." It produces a list - go to
Advanced. Under "Printer" there are two options labled as follows:

Print of front side of the sheet for duplex printing
Print of back side of the sheet for duplex printing

In both cases, the odd pages print first.
Print front side prints the odd pages in reverse order and the even pages in
normal order.
Print back side prints the odd pages in ascending (normal) order and the
even pages in reverse order.

You can check the manual duplex printing box in the print dialog window and
set the advanced option to Print back side of the sheet for duplex printing
and it works well with the Xerox Workcenter M118 copy machine. You just take
the printed pages from the first pass and put them face down, top of the page
away from you into the paper tray and hit the enter button on your computer.
The document will come out face up with page one on the front side and the
even pages on the back. Took me 4 trys and 200 wasted pages to figure it out.
Hope this saves paper for someone else.

Oops, typo.

Print of front side of the sheet for duplex printing
Print of back side of the sheet for duplex printing

OF should be ON as in Print ON front or back side of the sheet for duplex
printing.

Sorry,
Roger

Re: Duplex printing in Word 2007

I have always wondered what those choices meant. They never made any sense
to me, since it seems that duplex printing must necessarily print both
sides. Your explanation assumes a printer that prints all of one side first
and then all of the other side (as would make sense for manual duplexing).
I've so infrequently used the duplexing feature on my one printer that has
it that I can't swear to it, but I think it prints one side, sucks the sheet
back in and flips it, then prints the other side, then prints both sides of
the next page.

Re: Duplex printing in Word 2007

Yes, it does assume a printer that prints all one side then the other. Manual
duplex I guess implies you manually put the stack back into the printer and
print the other side. It's a trick that is different for different types of
documents and printers. I do it enough that I have check lists for manual
duplex printing on my Epson inkjet, my Samsung laser as well as the Xerox
M118 at work and for each of these a separate list for each type of document,
specifically Word and Adobe Reader files.

You are also right, those two statements make no sense. I just guessed and
tried several passes with the document to get it right. I could not find
anything in the Word help file about what these mean or do either. The other
version made more sense. It gave you a choice to print the first or second
pass or both in ascending or discending (reverse) order. You're fortunate to
have a duplex printer so you don't have to fuss with it. That will be my next
purchase I hope.

Re: Duplex printing in Word 2007

The printer I have that duplexes is an inkjet, which I use only rarely, when
I have to print in color (usually just single pages), and the only time I've
ever used the duplex feature was in printing a proof of a brochure I was
creating for a client. Almost all my work is done on a LaserJet that doesn't
duplex, and I duplex (when necessary) totally manually (without confusing
assistance from Word). But I have little need to duplex, and then usually
only a couple of pages. Perhaps if I'd had more need to duplex I might have
bothered to figure out what those settings meant, but I appreciate your
doing the work for me!
