Automatic mode

Provides the quickest and easiest way to start printing. The printer software takes care of all detailed settings based on the current Media Type and Color settings.

Advanced mode

Selecting Advanced as the Mode setting gives you complete control over your printing environment. Use these settings to experiment with new printing ideas or to fine-tune a range of print settings to meet your individual needs.

Print Quality

Select the printing quality that you want to use for printing.

High Speed

Activates bidirectional printing so your printer prints both left-to-right and right-to-left. High Speed mode speeds up printing, but decreases print quality.

Note:
Some settings may not be available, depending on the Media Type, Color, and Print Quality settings that you make.

Slide bars

The color enhancement slide bars adjust the indicated options in a range of -25% to +25%. Drag the slide bar to the right or left with your mouse to adjust the settings. You can also type a value from -25% to +25% in the boxes next to the slide bars.

Prints without any color adjustment.

Expansion

Using the slider, you can control the amount of the image that extends beyond the edges of the paper during borderless printing.

For most print jobs, selecting Max is recommended in order to eliminate margins on all sides of the paper. Moving the slider towards Min decreases the amount of the image that extends beyond the edges of the paper; however, as this amount decreases, margins may begin to appear on one or more sides of the paper.

Extension Setting
