Printing

Printing even pages first results in the right order, so you don't have to flip every page afterwards. Do a test page first, to make sure which way you have to flip the papers.

  • Print "Even pages"
  • Flip the printed pages over "sideways", and reinsert in printer
  • Print "Odd pages"
