The HP 8550 is great for printing pictures only, however the instructions gives the option to use it for printing booklets, and more which is a whole other issue! The software is not user friendly therefore it is difficult to use all the functions easily. It's compatibility with Publisher is questionable and in the two months since purchase I have been unsuccessful in printing even one 81/2 x 11 booklet publication my sole reason for the purchase. If you can tell me how to do that, I would appreciate it, anybody!!
