  • Do not use. Do not adjust margins.
  • Mirror left. For odd pages, do not adjust the margins. For even pages, swap the left and right margins.
  • Mirror top. For odd pages, do not adjust the margins. For even pages, swap the top and bottom margins.
  • Auto. If the value in the Print on both sides field is No, do not adjust margins. If the value is Rotate left, use the Mirror left option. If the value is Rotate up, use the Mirror top option.

Print on both sides. Specify the options for printing on both sides.

  • No. Print on a single side.
  • Rotate left. Print on both sides for flipping pages from left to right.
  • Rotate up. Print on both sides for flipping pages from bottom to top.

Once you have specified the printing options, click OK.
