HP Printers - How to Print on Both Sides of the Paper (Duplex) (Mac)

This document is for HP printers connected to a Mac computer.
To print on both sides of the paper, configure the print settings for automatic two-sided printing (if available) or manual paper handling.

Step 1: Set up the print job

Set up the duplex print job in the document print settings.
  1. To avoid page ordering issues, load enough blank paper into the input tray to fully complete your print job.
  2. Open the document you want to print, click File, click Print, and then click Show Details, if necessary.
  3. Look for a Two-Sided option in the print dialog.

    • If Two-Sided displays, your printer supports automatic duplexing. Select the checkbox, click Layout in the unnamed print options menu, select a binding option from the Two-Sided menu, and then click Print.

    • If Two-Sided is not available, continue with these steps to manually print on both sides of the page.
  4. Identify your printer paper tray type, and then continue to the next step.

  5. Select Paper Handling from the unnamed menu at the center of the window, and then select Odd Only from the Pages to Print menu.
    Select Odd Only pages to print
  6. Depending on your printer type, select one of the following settings from the Page Order menu:
    • Rear loading paper tray: Select Automatic
    • Front loading paper tray: Select Reverse
  7. Click Print.
  8. When all the pages are printed, remove any remaining unprinted paper from the input tray, and then continue to the next step.

Step 2: Print the other side of your pages

To print the other side, reload the pages into the input tray. Read the steps for your printer type for how pages are loaded and what print settings to select.
