            (In other programs, the page orientation is often in File > Page Setup...)


5. If you see a check box for "Two-Sided" in this screen, don't check it here.


6. Set layout:

            Underneath the Portrait and Landscape icons is a program-specific drop-down menu. Here, it will say "Safari". From this menu, choose "Layout"

            Once Layout is chosen, there will be choices under the "Two-Sided" drop-down, select one of the three choices: Off, Long-Edge binding, or Short-Edge binding


7. Set a stapling option:

            After the Layout choice is made, go back to the previous drop-down menu (currently Layout, previously Safari) and choose:

                        Printer Features


            After Printer features is chosen, Feature Sets: Paper will appear. From the drop-down menu where Paper appears, choose Finishing 2.


            The following stapling options should be chosen:


                        (a) For Portrait, Two-Sided, Long-Edge Binding, staple in upper left: 1 Staple (Port LU/Land RU)

                        (b) For Landscape, Two-Sided, Long-Edge Binding, staple in upper left: 1 Staple (Port LB/Land LU)

                        (c) For Landscape, Two-Sided, Short-Edge Binding, staple in upper left: 1 Staple (Port LB/Land LU)
