Is there a way to have messages set to the printer so that they are only printed on one side of the paper?'
It would be very helpful for filing purposes, if unrelated messages were not printed back-to-back.'
My solution was to hardcopy each message one at a time,  but I have had many complaints from Chuck Hains about the waste of paper for cover sheets.'
Is there an easy workaround?'

No, there isn''t an official way to do this, but here''s an inelegant workaround':'
	''(SETQ #SIDES 1))'
This will affect ALL hardcopy production under Tedit or Lafite.'
[bvm': Putting such a thing in Lafite depends on TEDIT.HARDCOPY being able to pass the desired info through.]'
[jds':  Having that feature depends on the people who write the printer interfaces documenting how to do things like this.]'
