Although default duplexing is not available for Mac, you will still need to enable double-sided printing by following these steps:

  3. Click “Options & Supplies”
  4. In the “Driver” tab check the box for “Duplex Unit”

  5. Click OK and close all windows

  1. Select Print from the File menu (or use the shortcut command-P)
  2. Click "Copies & Pages" in the pull-down menu and change to "Layout"
  3. From the "Two-Sided" pull-down menu, select "Long-Edge binding"
