View Full Version : Default system-wide print settings to Duplex

7th July 2009, 10:59 AM
this should be simple, right?

all i want is to default the print settings, system-wide (all applications), to print duplex (double-sided). my printer can do it, but i need to select this as an option each time i print, from each application.

there is nothing under the Printer & Fax options under Sys Prefs that i can see that will do this.

FWIW, i have a Canon PIXMA MP800 multi-function.

Have you tried to save the duplex job as a print preset?
