Print back to back pages: You can print the odd number pages by typing 1, 3, 5, 7, 9. Then put those printed pages back in the printer, and print the even number pages by typing in 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 – that’s it, you have back to back copies. (Note - be sure you put the paper in the right way – better run a test sheet!)
