Printer Settings, known issues
If your prints don't match sideways front and back, look for some setting that says "preserve dimensions". For my laser printer it's under the "advanced" tab.
In my experience, printing separate files achieves a more exact match, printing double side often tends to let the paper "wobble" inside the printer, especially with thin paper.
Spanish / Español
Si al imprimir las dos caras no corresponden lado a lado, busque algún ajuste en el menú de imprimir que diga "preserve dimensions", en mi caso hay uno en la oreja "advanced". El video tiene subtitulos en español, pulse el botón marcado [CC] en la pantalla youtube
