Manual Two-Sided/Duplex Printing (Letter-size)

Printing on both sides of a sheet of paper manually

 

You can print the file on both sides of a sheet of paper manually if your printer does not support automatic duplex printing. There are two options.

 

Printers are different, but the general settings to print our tracts are: Paper Size, Page Orientation or Layout, Page Scaling, Auto-Rotate, and Duplex Printing.

 

Option 1

 

(a)   Locate the PDF tract file that you saved to your computer or flash drive.

(b)   Double-Click the file to open it.

 

*Do not rotate, scale, or resize the pages.

(c)   Select the File tab from the menu bar. Move the cursor down and click Print.

 

The Print Dialog Box will appear.

(d)   Select a printer to print from.

(e)   Click the Properties button to adjust settings for the file you are about to print.

 

The Properties Dialog Box will appear.

(f)    Set the Paper Size to Letter.

(g)   Set Page Orientation to Landscape.

(h)   Click the OK button.

 

The Print Dialog Box will appear.

(i)   Ensure that Page Scaling is set to none.

(j)   Ensure that the Auto‐Rotate and Center check box is unchecked.

(k)  Confirm that the Paper Size and Page Orientation settings are correct.

(l)   Set Pages to 1 (as shown in the snapshot above) to print Page 1 of the tract only.

(m)      Click the OK button when you are ready to print.

(n)   When Page 1 is printed, turn the printed paper over and feed it into the printer to print Page 2.  Remember to set the printer to print the second page only (as
      shown in the snapshot below).

(o)   Click the OK button when you are ready to print.

 

Option 2

 

(a)   Do (a) to (l) above. Then print as many copies of Page 1 as you want. Be sure to enter the number of copies to be printed in the Copies box, now that you need               more than one copy.

(b)   Turn the printed stack over and feed the pages back into the printer so that it prints Page 2 on the unprinted side. Again, ensure that the number of copies to
        be printed is entered in the Copies box. 

*Caution must be taken with this option.

 

NOTE – It is a good idea to run a test before printing, to determine the correct way to reload the pages for the printer you are using.

 

It may become tiresome to use these options if you plan to print more than a few tracts. You may wish to refer to your printer manual for other ways to manually print on both sides of the paper.
