[Rotate+Collate] and [Rotate+Group] are available if the paper size is LTR, LTRR, A4, A4R, B5, or B5R.
If [Rotate+Collate] or [Rotate+Group] is selected, part of the print image may be cut off when the image is rotated. You need to load the same size paper as the original in the paper drawers in both landscape and portrait positions. If you do not, all the sheets will be printed in the orientation that the loaded paper is in.
The available paper sizes for [Offset+Collate] and [Offset+Group] vary depending on the type of the attached finisher.
When you select [Staple+Collate], [Staple+Group], [Eco(Stpl-Fr)+Col], or [Eco(Stpl-Fr)+Grp], you can select the stapling position.
NOTE
When you are stapling paper in landscape orientation, the image orientation and the staple position may not match.

You can adjust the width to fold paper with [Adjust C-Fold Position]. You should specify a value for this setting to adjust the folding width of C-folded paper to match the size needed to fit in an envelope, or to adjust the positioning of an image on C-folded paper to be visible through a window envelope. For details on this setting, See "Adjusting the Paper Folding Position."
