Canon Image Class MF743Cdw Duplex Printing on Mac OSX


I have been trying to disable duplex printing from my Mac for months - all settings I can find to turn it off has not worked. Every document defaults to 2 sided printing. Does anyone know how this can be resolved?

Hello Dpsmith204,

To disable two sided printing, you would usually uncheck the box for it under your printer settings. The setting will look like ta check box for two sided printing or the option found at the link HERE. We would be happy to further assist with the issue. To provide some feedback or some troubleshooting steps, we would need some additional information. If you could reply to this message with the information below, we can provide some assistance.

  1. What version of the Mac operating system are you using?
  2. What program are you printing from?

I use Big Sur 11.0.1 and any application I print from always prints duplex even when I turn it off. I have had to resort to printing one page at a time. 

GOOD NEWS! I reset the printing system and re-added the printer using Airprint and now duplex printing can be shut off.
