    This manual is so incredibly frustratin​g. I want to determine why my document feeder feature is not copying both sides of my document. No where in the document does it cover how to adjust settings for this. This is rendering my photocopie​r almost useless for me. I now have to manually copy each page on the scanner bed. The document feeder is useless. I will not buy Dell again.
