Scanning Two-Sided Originals

Use this function to send two-sided originals.

The front and back of the scanned original will be printed in order on separate sheets at the other end. The orientation of alternate sheets may be reversed at the other end. If you want to print the original with the same orientation at the other end, specify the “Original position” and “Page opening orientation”.
