  • When using the double-sided printing feature, the Preview window allows you to toggle between pages in the print job by clicking the appropriate page in the list at the left side of the screen. The pages are listed in two columns, Front and Back. The pages in the Front column will print first. The page numbers listed refer to pages of the print job, and may contain more than one document page.
  • If it is necessary to reprint part of a double-sided print job, select each page of the print job that does not need to be reprinted in the list at the left side of the screen, then click the remove page button. Make sure that the paper is loaded properly so that the print job will start on the correct side of the correct page.
