    Turning Printer Duplexer On/Off (Office 2000 SP3)

    I use Word with a HP4250 lasterjet with accessory duplexer. The printer is normally set for one-sided printing. When I want to do two-sided printing, a fair bit of mousing is necessary:

    I open the printer dialog, click Properties, click the Finishing tab, check the Print on Both Sides box, and then click OK to get back to the printer dialog. The obvious way to get around all this clicking is to record a macro and assign it to a key. The problem is that, since there are no key shortcuts for the Finishing Tab or Print on Both Sides box, they won

    The easiest way to do this might be to configure two different "printers". Both of these software printers can be configured to send their output to the same physcal printer, but they can have different defaults for things like two sided printing.

    You can then just choose a printer to get the behaviour you want.
