Default Duplex Printing

Is it possible to embed duplex printing codes within certain documents, as
you can with Wordperfect, so they will automatically duplex print without you
having to alter the printer properties?

You could use a PRINT field - if your printer accepts PCL commands
A PRINT field is simply a type of field that sends instructions directly to
the printer.

There are 3 possible data values for duplex setting: PRINT 27"&l0S" simplex
PRINT 27"&l1S" vertical duplex . PRINT 27"&l2S" horizontal duplex
(bookformat)

The codes after PRINT are 27 (escape), double quote, ampersand,
lowercase L, 0, 1 or 2, uppercase S and finally terminated a double quote.
