Making the printer driver settings

To make the printer driver settings, follow the steps below.

For details about the printer software, see online help by pressing the Help (marked with "?") icon button in the driver setting dialog boxes.

While many Macintosh applications override the settings made in the printer driver, some do not, so you must verify the settings to get the results you expect.

Choose Page Setup from the File menu. This brings up the Page Setup dialog box shown below.

Select the paper size you loaded in the printer from the Paper Size list.

When roll paper is used, set the Roll Paper Option as required.

After making your settings, click the OK button to close the Page Setup dialog box.

You cannot print from the Page Setup dialog box. You can only print from the Print dialog box.

Choose Print from the File menu. The Print dialog box appears as shown below.

You can also open the Print dialog box by pressing the Options button in the Page Setup dialog box.

Make the settings for Copies and Pages.

Select the media you loaded in the printer from the Media Type list.

The Media Type setting determines what other settings are available, so you should always make this setting first.

In the Ink box, if you use UltraChrome ink, select Color/B&W Photo to print color or monotone photos, or Black to print a draft or black text only. If you use Archival or Photographic Dye ink, select Color to print in color, or Black to print in black and white.

Make sure the Mode option is set to Automatic.

When Automatic is selected, the printer driver takes controls of all detailed settings based on the current Media Type setting and Ink settings.

Adjust Speed and Quality in the Mode box if a slider appears. Drag the slide left or right depending on which is more important. This setting is usually automatically decided in accordance with your Media Type setting.

Depending on the Media Type you choose, a slider appears in the Mode box.

Click the Print button to start printing.
