You can go to Print & Scan in the system preferences and select Options & Supplies for your printer. In there, you should see an option for Duplex Unit (if your printer supports it). If that is checked, you can use the automatic double-side printing (by checking the Two-sided box next to Copies). If not, or if that option is unavailable, you can't. ...

If the wireless printer has joined the network, OS X should see it listed as a nearby printer. From the Print & Scan pane in System Preferences, click the Plus (+) button in the lower left, and it should show up in the popup menu.

This largely depends upon the settings that your network administrator has set up for your VPN connection. It is possible for them to require that all traffic travel through the VPN tunnel, at which point, no, you will not be able to connect to a networked printer in your home. It is also possible for them to allow traffic that is not bound for your ...

The Apple Store doesn’t list any AirPrint-compatible receipt printers. However, the AirPrint Activator (an app for your Mac) allows you to use any shared printer via AirPrint.

Most receipt printers I have seen use a wired ethernet connection, so you could add a slick Lantronix xPrintServer which uses AirPrint to avoid needing a computer running for your iOS devices to print to these specialized printers. Image from the vendor site linked above There are several reviews of this product, and the unit is physically about the size ...

Or if you already have the file open in Preview, you can drag the icon of the file from the title bar of the Preview window onto the Safari window or Safari icon in the dock. Otherwise, ...

You will find a nice answer over at sister site superuser. It involves a terminal program called enscript which comes with lot's of options and I know at least of one support file for extending its capabilities to print Ruby code. EDIT: I just noticed the "clipboard" part of the question. The clipboard content can be accessed from the command line and fed ...

If you don't want to use the terminal for this task and want a mac 'application' you should look at 'Text Wrangler' by Bare Bones Software. It is freeware, which fits your 'low price' request ;) I use it to print out smaller runs of text, and use it specifically for the line number feature.

To print to your HP printer using AirPrint you will need some kind of AirPrint server. It is not enough to just get network connectivity to the printer, you need some software running somewhere to handle some of the communication details. It is conceivable that someone makes a 3G WiFi router that includes AirPrint support but I think is unlikely. ...

Address Book has this functionality built in. First, create a group and drag the contacts you want to send mail to into that group: Select the group, then go File -> Print. Under the Style menu, you will see that you have the option to print either envelopers or address labels. The Layout tab will let you configure what specific kind of labels or ...

You can use the Create Booklet utility which adds an option to “print”, from Preview or any other app, to generate a second pdf file with the pages arranged appropriately to print and bind as a booklet. When printing the resulting pdf booklet, remember to select “Two-Sided: Short-Edge binding” in the “Layout” options of the print dialog.

I don't really have a direct answer for you, but I would like to help by sharing what I know. I have a Mobile Me account, and there are no tools for editing your photos online. It's an image gallery. A gallery is meant just for viewing and not for editing. Mobile Me was designed to work in conjunction with the iLife software on a desktop mac. You edit the ...

Printers are easy, they mostly all work with Macs. Scanners are another story, and drivers for those used to be complex to find and use. However 10.6 introduced far better support for scanners and a number of those now work just out of the box. I recommend you go for one listed as compatible if possible as an Apple maintained driver is more likely to keep ...

I am not sure if this will work for all of the PDF files, but I was having the same issue when printing today. I looked up several solutions and everything seems overly complex. Solutions being download this PDF writer program, or update your adobe version... ext.... I went to the PDF file and clicked print, when the print window showed up I went to the ...

In the version of Preview included in Lion, this is easy. Go to File-> Print... Click the Show Details button to reveal extra options. Under Pages, choose Selected Page in Sidebar. That will print only the current page (and the live print preview will update to show you). Note that the side bar does not have to be visible for this to work.

There doesn't seem to be a way to do this natively. Your options seem to be: Get a black-and-white airprint printer. Use a black-and-white, non-airprint printer with AirPrint Activator. Use Epson's app which seems to let you print black-and-white photos. Use HP's app which seems to let you choose these kind of settings. Tell Apple you want this feature.

This is probably too late but I think I know the answer, so maybe it'll help someone. What you probably want to do is Convert notes to skim notes Go to File > Export > choose File format either Notes as RTF or Notes as text. This answers your 'export to text document' questions. I don't see how you could print the PDF together with the text in the ...

Adobe Reader 10.x does go out of it's way to hide the normal print options from OS X but you can still get to them by clicking on the Printer... button at the bottom of the Adobe Print Dialog and clicking through the warning not to change things behind Adobe's back. I don't have a form like you mentioned in red, but try setting all the print options in ...

Drivers. The printers that will work with Mac will have OS X drivers. These days, it's rare to find a printer without a driver available. I would start here: http://www.macworld.com/products/printers.html

"Booklet printing" is called imposition in the terminology of the professional printing business. Cheap Impostor is a utility for doing exactly what you want. It costs US $35, and has a free trial with some features disabled. It is affordable for casual use, but also good enough for professional imposition.

I don't think there's a way to do this on a per-user-account basis, but you can do it per-computer. The reason for this is that printer admin rights are controlled by membership in the _lpadmin group, which is a local group on each computer. Since it's a local group, membership is controlled locally. I can give you two ways to do it: first, change the ...

I have this problem too on all Lion machines. Somehow Apple did not set up the cups system correctly. In /var/log/system.log you will find error messages like "xpchelper[6719]: Could not get real path of user account (uid: 26) home directory: /var/spool/cups; error: The operation couldn’t be completed. Permission denied. Using home directory." uid 26 is user ...

Lantronix xPrintServer is a hardware device which can be plugged into your network to offer AirPrint services to iOS devices. I haven't used it myself, see ArsTechnica for a brief description: Simply plug it in to your home or office network, and every printer accessible on your local subnet—be it wired or wireless—will now show as an option when using ...

The only one I am aware of is the Lantronix xPrintServer. xPrintServer fills the gap between the productivity of iPads and iPhones and the inability to print from those devices to office networked printers. *Bold by me Unfortunately it only works for networked printers. Using a machine as a potential AirPrint server is at this point still the easiest ...
