Printer Settings

[Printer Settings] menu is used to make settings for paper trays such as the auto tray selection feature.

Substitute Tray

Specifies whether to print on paper loaded in another tray when there is no paper left in the tray selected by the auto tray selection feature. If you want to replace paper, specify the paper size.

[Off] (default)

Select this not to replace paper but display a message prompting you to load paper.

[Larger Size]

Select this to replace the paper with a larger size paper before printing in 100% magnification ratio.

[Nearest Size]

Select this to replace the paper with the nearest size paper before printing. This may shrink the images automatically as required.

Note: If a computer issues the instruction about paper selection, it overwrites this setting.

Paper Type

Specifies the paper type to be loaded in trays. The default is [Plain] for all trays. The names specified in [Paper Name] will be displayed for Customs 1 to 5.

Select from [Plain], [Recycled], [Heavyweight 1], [Heavyweight 2], [Transparency], and [Custom 1] to [Custom 5].

Paper Priority

Specifies the priority of the paper type loaded in the tray specified with the auto tray selection feature. The names specified in [Paper Name] will be displayed for Customs 1 to 5.

Select the priority of each paper type from [Not Selected] and [1] to [9]. You can specify the same priority for different paper types. In this case, the paper tray is selected based on the settings in [Tray Priority]. If you set [Not Selected] for a paper type, the tray loaded with the paper type will be excluded from the targets of auto tray selection. The default is [1] for plain paper, [2] for recycled paper, and [Not Selected] for the others.

Refer to "Automatic Tray Selection" in Chapter 3.

Tray Priority

Specifies the priority of Trays 1 to 4 for auto tray selection when the optional trays are installed.

Set each tray to any of [1] to [3]. You cannot set the same tray for each priority number. That means the trays that can be set [2] are other than the tray specified in [1], and the trays that can be set [3] are other than the trays specified in [1] and [2]. The remaining trays are set to [4]. The default priority is Tray 1 (highest priority) to Tray 4 (lowest priority).

Paper Size

Specifies the paper size to be loaded in trays.

Note: For details on the paper sizes available for each tray, refer to "Usable Paper" in this Chapter 3.

[Auto] (default)

Select this to load the standard size paper.

[Custom]

Select this to load the custom size paper and specify the height and width in increments of 1 mm (0.1").

Paper Name

You can change Customs 1 to 5 displayed in [Paper Priority] and [Paper Type] to any names.

Specify up to 12 alphanumeric characters.

Job Offset

Specify how to perform offset output. This setting is only available when the optional offset catch tray is installed.

[Offset Per Set] (default)

When printing multiple copies, each set of document is output with its position shifted per set.

[Offset Per Job]

Select this to output the document with its position shifted per job.

[Off]

Select this if you do not want to perform offset output.

Print ID

Select this to print the user ID on a specified position.

The default is [Off].

Odd Page Duplex

Specifies whether to perform 1 sided printing or 2 sided printing for the first page when the total number of pages is an odd number. This setting is only available when the 2 sided printing function is available. The default is [1 Sided].

PaperSelect Mode

Specifies how to select paper when printing PostScript data.

[Auto] (default)

Select this mode when you want to use our PostScript driver. Selecting this will print on the paper loaded in the tray specified by the printer driver.

[Select from tray]

Some applications create the PostScript program directly without using a printer driver. In this case, a paper tray may not be selected correctly depending on the application. Selecting [Select from tray] ensures that data is printed on the specified paper.

Print Unused Form

Specifies whether to cancel the job or to print data only if the form specified for printing is not registered.

The default is [On (Data only)].

Default Paper Size

Specifies the default setting of the paper size when using E-mail printing feature, the paper size when printing the reports, and the [Output Size] setting of the each print mode to [A4] or [8.511"]. This default setting varies depending on the country where the printer is sold.
