Can you please talk me through how you set those options?  What buttons did you
press, etc?

Please file separate bug reports for those problems.  It is much easier to keep
track of which problems are fixed when there is one bug per report.  Thanks.

x Reverse print order
Duplex->Long edge (standard)

I must say that I do not see a save or apply button. I now find that if
I go to Tools & Settings->Configure Print Settings it takes you to the
Cups printer administration page where you can Set Printer Options. I
see a setting for duplex but not reverse print order. If you set the
duplex option and then look in hp-toolbox you do not see duplex printing
enabled and in fact if you print you do not get duplex printing.

I have a partial fix. I went to

Down loaded the Officejet 7300 PPD file.
cat Officejet7300.ppd >/etc/cups/ppd/<printer>
service hplip restart
service cups restart

Changing the settings in hp-toolbox does not seem to stick. So I went to Cups
and changed the printer settings for duplex printing and I now get duplex
printing. No option for reverse print order.

Issue seems to be taken care of by cups now, verified on hplip-1.6.10-1.fc6.4
and cups-1.2.7-1.5.fc6. Still wish there was a menu for hp-toolbox.
