Question about Canon PIXMA Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

MG5300, duplex printing in booklet mode, short-side stapling, 2 pages/side, landscape orientation. The instructions said that the booklet mode was designed to fold in the center between pages. This would necessitate that the text should be oriented in the same direction on both sides of a sheet. Instead, the reverse side printed upside down, so I can't fold the sheets and staple in between the pages. I have to bind on the left (long) side and view the pages from the right long side, unfolded. I saw no option to specify text orientation on reverse side of sheet. How can I make a 4 page/sheet, center-bound booklet? Or is it not a booklet?

SOURCE: Canon MP610 Printer When automatic duplex

I haven't found a way to do this using the printer settings.

There is no (apparent) simple solution, but needing tp print a 56 page pdf form the only solution was to load the pdf into Adobe Acrobat and then in the 'document' pull down menu select 'rotate pages', then select '180 degrees' and also 'rotate even pages only'. This then prints OK.

The down side is that you need full Adobe Acrobat rather than just the reader.

I have been unable to rotate pages through 180 degrees in MS Word but it is possible using MS Publisher.

SOURCE: Making a booklet out of a multi-page PageMaker file

many questions, the answer should be yes and all is in the driver settings but it all depends on if you have the correct driver installed and configured correctly for your copier and if your finisher is a booklet finisher. if you have every thing laid out in page maker correctly and the driver is setup correctly then it should do just fine.

How to get a Canon MG5220 printer to print 2-sided copies


If you have a Canon MG5220 you certainly can print two-sided. I have one and I print two=sided pages. When you bring up your print menu underneath "Orientation" is a small window that likely says "layout". Click that window and you will have various options to choose from; color matching, paper handling, cover page, quality media color options. borderless printing and duplex printing & margin. Choose Duplex & Margin. Once you've clicked that you'll see a check box for duplex printing, click that box. You have other options for for reduced or normal printing (your choice) and then if you're stapling there's options for the side you'd prefer but the point is once you've checked off that box for duplex printing you're set to go.

I am having trouble with booklet style printing -- under Vista


After a great deal of frustration and trying every permutation possible I succeeded amid an ever rising mountain of paper! . . .and find that I have to totally ignore the "Booklet printing" option . . . but ask it to print landscape; 1 page per sheet; flip on short edge.
Now I need to do the same to crack the sytem for the Cannon Pixma IP4000 inkjet.
Thank you for your consideration.

When I duplex in landscape mode the text points indiferent directions. How can I change this? For example - one side is upside down.


In page setup, in the Duplex section, check Duplex and Automatic, and then select Short-side stapling (Right). I had the same problem, and this solution worked for me.

I am working with a Ricoh Aficio 3260 machine. I have been sent a 20-page Publisher document laid out in Landscape, each page is set up as 8.5 x 5.5. I want the Ricoh to produce a booklet stapled...


Well, I don't have a document in that format exactly to play with, but assuming you are using the PCL 5c driver, it should be a fairly simple task. If your using another driver (ie: RPCS) then it will be similar, just a little different looking dialog box.
Open your document, Select "Print", select "properties", you can change the "orientation", and "layout" (pages per sheet), 'duplex', and staple (assuming you have a booklet finisher installed and configured in your printer properties). There is an icon in the left corner that changes with the settings and should help you with the them. Obviously, you should only print 1 set, or even just a page or 2 to check the output. These types of things are always a bit of trial and error until you have done it a couple times. I hope this helps

Designing a document in book form and printing in Word 2007


When you select Book fold for your page setup, Microsoft Word prints two pages on one side of the paper. When you fold the paper, it opens like a book. This option is intended for documents that have more than two pages.
1. Set up your document as a booklet.
When you create a booklet, it's best to start with a new, blank document so that you have better control over the placement of text, graphics, and other elements. You can add a book fold to an existing document, but you may have to reposition some elements once the book fold is in place.
A. Start a new, blank document.
B. On the File menu, click Page Setup, and then click the Margins tab.
C. In the Multiple pages list, select Book fold.
If your document is not set to landscape orientation, Microsoft Word sets it to landscape.
D. In the Inside and Outside boxes, type or select the amount of space you want for the inside and outside margins (margin: The blank space outside the printing area on a page.).
If you need even more space along the fold to accommodate binding, type or select the amount of space you want in the Gutter box.
E. In the Sheets per booklet list, select the number of pages you want to include in a single booklet.
If the number of pages in the document exceeds the number of pages you select for a booklet, Word prints the document as multiple booklets.
F. Select any other options you want in the Page Setup dialog box.
G. Add text, graphics, headers or footers (header and footer: A header, which can consist of text or graphics, appears at the top of every page in a section. A footer appears at the bottom of every page. Headers and footers often contain page numbers, chapter titles, dates, and author names.), and other elements to your document as usual.
2. On the File menu, click Print.
3. Set options for printing on both sides of the paper.
If you're using a duplex printer (one that automatically prints on both sides of the paper)
Click Properties, and then set the options you want. If you have a choice of setting the page orientation and duplex options, select landscape orientation, and flip the document on the short edge or short side.
If you aren't using a duplex printer
In the Print dialog box, select the Manual duplex check box. Word will print all of the pages that appear on one side of the paper, and then prompt you to turn the stack over and feed the pages again.
4. Select the page range you want to print.
If you click Current page or Pages, Word prints the page you indicate, plus the three other pages that belong on the same sheet of paper.
If you click Selection, Word prints your selection using the default page layout instead of booklet layout.

How do I print on both sides of my paper


On printers without a duplexer (a device that flips the paper to allow printing on both sides) you will have to print the first side, manually flip and print the second side. If you're using MS Word or MS Publisher you can easily configure the program to organize the pages for you: Start a new, blank document. -Click File, Page Setup then click the Margins tab. -In the Multiple pages section select Book fold. -Set your document to landscape orientation if it is not already. -In the Inside and Outside boxes, type or select the amount of space you want for your margins. -In the Sheets per booklet list select the number of pages you want to include in a single booklet. If the number of pages in the document exceeds the number of pages you select for a booklet, Word prints the document as multiple booklets. -When you get ready to print make sure you check the manual duplex box (should be in the first dialog box that appears when you click on File, Print). Word will print the first page, and then prompt you to take the pages that just printed and load them into the input tray of your printer. The trick is to learn how to orient the pages correctly for your printer. Good luck.
