Default Paper Size


[Letter]*, [Legal], [A4], [A3], [A5], [A6], [B4], [B5], [11x17], [Executive], [Statement]

This parameter defines the default paper size used when the paper size cannot be set within the application software, when no paper source is specified.

Default Paper Type


[Thin 1], [Thin 2], [Plain 1]*, [Plain 2], [Plain 3], [Heavy 1], [Heavy 2], [Heavy 3], [Heavy 4], [Heavy 5], [Heavy 6], [Color], [Recycled], [Pre-Punched], [Transparency], [Tracing], [Labels], [Bond], [Letterhead], [Tab], [Clear Film]

This parameter sets the default paper type to be used for print jobs. This machine has internally defined optimal print modes for each specified paper type.

Paper Size Override


[On], [Off]*

If paper of the size that is set in the printer driver has not been loaded in the paper drawer, the paper that is printed is changed to the following sizes.
Printer Driver Setting
Paper
Letter
A4
A4
Letter
11" x 17"
A3
A3
11" x 17"

[On]

The paper size is changed. If there is no paper in the paper source of the size that is set in the printer driver, the paper supply message is displayed and the paper size is not changed.

[Off]

The paper supply message is displayed and the paper size is not changed.

IMPORTANT
If you are printing from an OS that lacks a printer driver for the machine (MS-DOS, UNIX, etc.), make sure that the paper loaded in the paper drawer matches the paper size specified in this setting. If the paper size specified in this setting is not available, an error message is displayed when the machine tries to print the job and the machine stops. In addition, if a paper source has not been selected through the application, the machine automatically selects the default print settings for the paper size and type. (See "User's Guide.")
