Thank you for your reply.,
I'm rather old (92), so maybe a bit stupid. .Please forgive my question. I use a PC with Widows 7. My new printer does so much more than I am used to and has me a bit baffled
Thank you for your answer, but I'm afraid that it didn't work.
I right-clicked the MG6400 series icon which gave a menu, on which the Properties item listed the main headings of what the printer will do.
The Printer Properties item yielded a 'Features' list that included Double-Sided ... Yes and Paper available alongside a space for a list to fill in entries. Only A4 was listed. But I found no way of adding another entry.
. For everyday printing, A5 is available as a paper size.
The error message I have been getting when trying to start an A5 duplex print is
"A paper size that is not supported by the automatic duplex printing function is selected.
Stop printing, uncheck Automatic on the Page Setup tab of the Printer Driver, then print again."
The wording of this error message implies clearly that it will do duplex on other paper sizes if only you know how to ask it to do so. My previous printer was an MG6150 and it did this without this fuss.
Russell, your help is really appreciated.
I'm afraid I,m causing you a lot of bother, but I'm not any further.
I've been using computers for best part of 20 years, but I don't recall using a programme with a 'Page Setup' that made any mention of Automatic.
Perhaps my stuff of out of date. For what I want to print I am using Serif PagePlus X3 and Microsoft Word 2000. For each of these there is the usual 'File / Page Setup'. . Should I lash out and buy some more up to date software? -- or maybe a different printer?
I do have an old HP printer that will do duplex, but it has a habit of chewing up A5 paper so I can't use it for that size. Very tedious.!
Thank you, Russell, for your patience.
Thank you, Russell. I expect I'll sort something out -- don't worry.
Thank you, Russell. I'll think of something -- don't worry.
