Printing from macOS

Print from the application menu after registering the printer.


  • We recommend exiting unnecessary applications before printing. Running several applications while printing may interrupt the transfer of print data and affect printing quality.

Registering the printer

The printer needs to be registered in Print & Scan (identified as Printers & Scanners or Print & Fax in other versions of macOS X) in System Preferences before printing.

For instructions on registering printers, see "Sharing the Printer on a Network (macOS)."


  • During this setup process, the printer will not be listed among available printers if it is off or disconnected.

Printing from the application software

  1. In the application software, select Print from the File menu to display the dialog box for printing conditions.


    • This dialog box includes basic printing options and enables you to choose the printer, specify the range of pages, number of copies, and so on.

  2. Select the printer in the Printer list.

  3. Click Print to start printing.

    As shown in the following illustration, you can switch to other panes in this dialog box to complete settings for various methods of printing, including enlarged and reduced printing, borderless printing, and so on.
