Thanks, Mr. Breen, for the lesson today.

I don't understand why the printing options are organized they way they are. It's not intuitive. For example: 'Scale to fit paper size' is under Paper Handling when it should be consolidated into in Layout, yet 'Two-sided Printing' is under Output Settings and not Paper Handling. I should clarify that's when printing to an Epson multifunction printer. When printing to an HP MFP, a '2-sided' checkbox appears right at the top next to 'copies'. Huh? I would think that turning off color to print in grayscale would be located in Color Options but it's not, it's in Print Settings (also on Epson, different again for HP). Let's say I want to center a print on the paper, how do I do it? That option isn't in Layout, in fact, I can't find it anywhere. Part of the frustration is that not all of the basic functions I need to control are in the standard settings sections (Layout, Paper Handling, etc), they are in secondary sections underneath. That would be tolerable accept the names and functionality of these sections change with each printer. If you use different printers at home and at work, good luck trying to remember where the settings you need are. Very frustrating.
