Does this do double-sided printing?
I used to have a printer that only printed one side and although I put up with it, I'm now moving out and want a printer that prints both side (it's a pain having to constantly manually do it every time I'm printing articles and research for uni). Any suggestions?

The main reason I bought this printer was for Auto Duplexing (two sided Printing) and it doesn't work properly. It mostly works with 'Pages' but if you insert page numbers at the bottom, they dont print out. What you have to do is click on 'Layout', & then 'Paper Handling', in 'pages to print', set it to 'even only' & in 'Page order', set it to 'Normal'. Then press 'Print'. Once these pages have printed, take them out, turn them around & put them back in again header first but facing upwards. Then go through the same process again but this time set the 'pages to print' to 'odd only' and 'Page order' to 'Reverse'. Then Print. With Microsoft Word for Mac, you change the setting from 'Copies & Pages' to 'Microsoft Word', click 'odd pages only', click 'Word options', make sure the 'reverse print order' is unticked, then Print. Then turn the printed pages around & reinsert them facing upwards, & go through the same process again, but this time set it to 'Even pages only', & in 'Word Options', tick the 'reverse print order' box. Then Print. What a ******* pain !, but it was the only way I could get it to work properly. If anyone knows better, I would love to know. I suspect all HP printers have the same problem with Mac.
