 +De option ​//Binding Position// is for 2-sided printing. It determines whether the back page is printed upside down or not. If you print in landscape modeyou probably want //Top bind// (and staple in //Left corner// or at two positions) (see screenshot),​ so you can flip a page up (instead of to the left) and read its back. Nevertheless,​ it seems that sometimes //Left bind// is required to have this type of binding, probably because the application doesn'​t tell the printer that the layout is in landscape.
