You can set how to express halftones in black and white data.
Print data is expressed in dots. Fine gradations, edges, and shades are expressed by using dither patterns, which are groups of dots. This is called halftone processing.
For example, using a pattern that sharpens character and line edges, or a pattern that smoothens image and graph gradation, enables you to obtain the most suitable texture.


You can print text with distinct outlines, which is best to print text and thin lines.


You can print with both smooth gradation and outlines, which is best to print graphs and graphics that use gradation.

[Error Diffusion]

This mode is optimal for printing text or very fine lines and for printing contours in CAD data.
If you use the [Error Diffusion] mode, the stability of a fixed toner (the image quality) may decrease.
