[XPS] Settings

Settings on this menu specify how to print XPS files that are sent directly to the machine using the Remote UI or command prompt.

NOTE
These settings are only applicable for the XPS Direct Print Printer.

[Paper Save]


[On], [Off]*

This setting specifies whether to output a blank page when there is no data to print on the page.

[On]

A blank page is not output, thus saving paper.

[Off]

A blank page is output.
NOTE
Depending on the content of print data, some pages may not be determined as blank even if nothing is drawn on the print area of those pages.

[Halftones]


[Text]: [Resolution]*, [Gradation], [High Resolution]
[Graphics]: [Resolution]*, [Gradation], [High Resolution]
[Image]: [Resolution]*, [Gradation], [High Resolution]

This setting specifies how to express halftones.
Settings can be applied separately for text, graphics, and image data.

[Resolution]

A dither pattern that gives priority to the resolution of the images is used. This helps eliminate the appearance of jagged or uneven lines along the edges of objects and is best for printing standard text and graphics.

[Gradation]

A dither pattern that gives priority to the appearance of smooth changes in tone is used. This is best for reproducing images with delicate gradations or changes of tone.

[High Resolution]

Finer printing can be done than with [Resolution], although toner stability is somewhat weaker. This is suited to printing small characters and fine lines, and outlines (such as from CAD data) sharply.

[Halftones] (2700 Series)


[Error Diffusion (600dpi Only)]: [On], [Off]*
[Text]: [Resolution]*, [Gradation]
[Graphics]: [Resolution], [Gradation]*
[Image]: [Resolution], [Gradation]*

This setting specifies how to express halftones.
Settings can be applied separately for text, graphics, and image data.

[Error Diffusion (600dpi Only)]

If you set this to [On], [Text], [Graphics], and [Image] are all set to [Error Diffusion (600dpi Only)] and [Resolution] and [Gradation] cannot be selected.
If you set this to [Off], [Text], [Graphics], and [Image] are not set to [Error Diffusion (600dpi Only)] and [Resolution] and [Gradation] can be selected.
This mode is suitable for printing data with text and thin lines and the curved lines of CAD data, etc.
NOTE
The stability of the texture and fixed toner may be reduced when this mode is used.

[Resolution]

A dither pattern that gives priority to the resolution of the images is used. This helps eliminate the appearance of jagged or uneven lines along the edges of objects and is best for printing standard text and graphics.

[Gradation]

A dither pattern that gives priority to the appearance of smooth changes in tone is used. This is best for reproducing images with delicate gradations or changes of tone.

[Grayscale Conversion]


[Text]: [sRGB], [NTSC]*, [Uniform RGB]
[Graphics]: [sRGB], [NTSC]*, [Uniform RGB]
[Image]: [sRGB], [NTSC]*, [Uniform RGB]

You can select ways to convert color values to a grayscale value when you print color print data.

[sRGB]

Lets you to calculate the grayscale value by the color conversion method based on sRGB.

[NTSC]

Lets you to calculate the grayscale value by the color conversion method based on NTSC.

[Uniform RGB]

Counts the average value of the Red, Green, and Blue values as the grayscale value.

NOTE
This section describes the settings to convert the color data into grayscale data.
This setting is invalid for black-and-white data.
If the color mode for printing the XPS data is set to automatic, this setting is invalid.
