Precautions When Installing

  • Installation requires administrator privileges.

  • Close all applications and software before installing.

  • If a document is being printed, terminate the printing process or wait until printing is complete.

Precautions When Using

  • Printable file formats are as follows:

    • V1.7-conforming PDF

      * However, password protection, overprinting, and some functions of transparency are not supported.

    • Rev. 6-conforming TIFF

    • JFIF 1.02-conforming JPEG

    • HP-GL/2

      * You cannot specify pages to print.

      * In Output size, you can only select Actual size.

  • Printable document size is the same as the document size that can be used with the printer driver.

    * Document sizes for raster images (tiff or jpeg) are calculated as follows:

    • "Page size (inch)" = "Pixel size (pixel)" / "Resolution (dpi)"

      Raster images with no resolution information will be calculated as 300 dpi resolution.

  • When printing via the print server, set Allow printing when offline to On in Special Settings under Preferences.

  • With data that contains images that reaches the document size limit, if you select Actual size in Output size on the main screen, all four sides of the image that are outside of the printable range will not be printed.
