HP CM8060/CM8050 Color MFP with Edgeline Technology - HP PCL 6, PCL 5, and PS Emulation drivers for MS Windows

Control print jobs from any of several places:
  • Software-program print-dialog box
  • Print-driver user interface
  • Device control panel (sets defaults, but does not provide access to all settings)
  • HP Web Jetadmin (sets defaults, but does not provide access to all settings)
Generally, for features that are duplicated (for instance, select the paper input tray), settings that are established in the software program override print-driver settings. Print-driver settings, in turn, override device control-panel settings.
When installing the print-system software in Windows Vista, Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows Server 2003, the HP PCL 6 driver is installed by default. The HP PCL 5 and PS Emulation drivers can be installed by performing a Custom Installation.
The following sections describe the options that are available on each tab of the HP PCL 6, PCL 5, and PS Emulation drivers.
This STR also describes differences between the HP PCL 6, PCL 5, and PS Emulation drivers. Unless otherwise noted, the features that are described apply to all three.

Access to print drivers in Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows 2000

Depending on the operating system on which the print drivers are installed, there are several ways to gain access to the print drivers and different print-driver interfaces:

Software-program print-dialog box

To gain access to the print-driver settings from within most software programs:
  1. Click File.
  2. Click Print.
  3. Click Properties.
The appearance and names of the driver tabs can vary, depending on the operating system. These driver settings apply only while that software program is open.

Print-driver user interface

Control the drivers directly from the Printers folder through the two sets of driver tabs: the Printing Preferences tabs and the Properties tabs. The settings on the Printing Preferences driver tabs control the driver default settings for each user's profile. Configure installable options on the Properties driver tabs.

Printing Preferences driver tabs

The Printing Preferences driver tabs change the default settings that are used across all software programs. To gain access to these tabs:
  1. Click Start.
  2. For Windows 2000, select Settings, and then click Printers.
    For Windows Vista, Windows XP Professional and Windows Server 2003, click Printers and Faxes.
    For Windows XP Home, click Control Panel, and then double-click the Printers and Faxes icon.
  3. Right-click the driver name.
  4. Click Printing Preferences.
The following Printing Preferences print-driver tabs are available:
  • Advanced
  • Printing Shortcuts
  • Paper/Quality

The following Properties driver tabs are described in this STR:
  • Device Settings
  • About

Device control panel

For information about controlling print jobs from the device control panel, see the HP CM8060/CM8050 Color MFP with Edgeline Technology System Administrator Guide, which is available on the System Administrator's CD that came with the device, or download it from one of the following Web sites:

Help system

The HP PCL 6, PCL 5, and PS Emulation drivers include a full-featured Help system to provide assistance with printing and configuration options.

What's this? Help

Windows Vista, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 support What's this? Help. Gain access to What's this? Help messages in any of the following ways:
  • Right-click a control and then click What's this?. A pop-up Help window appears.
  • Click the ? button in the upper-right corner of the frame, next to the X, to change the cursor to an arrow with a question mark. When you use this special cursor to select a control, the pop-up Help window for that feature appears.
  • Press the F1 key, and the Help window for the currently selected control appears.

Context-sensitive Help

Click the Help button on a driver tab or in a dialog box to see a context-sensitive Help message.

Incompatible Print Settings messages

Incompatible Print Settings (constraint) messages are unsolicited messages that appear in response to specific print-driver selections. These messages appear in response to selections that are illogical or impossible given the device capabilities or the current settings of other controls.
note:
Constraint messages are limited, and the underlying software architecture might accept some settings that are illogical or impossible for the device to perform. Sending a job that has incompatible settings can lead to unexpected results. If print jobs do not print as expected, see the device documentation to ensure that the device has the expected capabilities.
In Windows Vista, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 operating environments, some technically invalid print-driver configurations result in warning messages when trying to save the conflicting settings in the driver. Duplexing, for example, is not possible when the Labels paper type is selected. The following figure shows an example of an Incompatible Print Settings message.
Figure : An Incompatible Print Settings message
To accept the change, select Resolve all conflicts for me automatically. and then click OK. The driver resets the conflicting control to a setting that is compatible with the new value.
To keep the conflicting setting, select I will resolve the conflict myself. and then click OK.
note:
If the conflict is not resolved when the driver is closed, the same dialog appears again when a print job is sent to the device.

Advanced tab features

To gain access to the Advanced tab:
  1. Click Start.
  2. For Windows 2000, select Settings, and then click Printers.
    For Windows Vista, Windows XP Professional and Windows Server 2003, click Printers and Faxes.
    For Windows XP Home, click Control Panel, and then double-click the Printers and Faxes icon.
  3. Right-click the driver name.
  4. Click Printing Preferences.
  5. Click the Advanced tab.
Use the Advanced tab to change the layout of printed pages and to configure special controls that are not commonly used. Also use this tab to control print-driver features such as paper size and number of copies (although most current software programs support these features in the print dialog box or through the page settings in the software program). The following figure shows the Advanced tab.
Figure : Advanced tab
The Advanced tab contains the following controls:

Paper/Output

The Paper/Output control contains the following settings:
  • Copy Count
  • Collated check box (becomes available and can be changed when the Copy Count setting is greater than 1)
note:
When changing control settings, click the setting to see the drop-down list for that setting.

Copy Count

Copy Count specifies the number of copies to print. This driver setting is useful for software programs that do not provide a copy count. If a copy count is available in the software program, set the copy count in the software program.
The requested number of copies appears in the Copy Count option. Select the number by typing in the box or by using the up and down arrows to the right of the text box. Valid entries are numbers from 1 to 9999. The copies value will not advance from the maximum number (9999) to 1 when the up arrow is used, or change from 1 to the maximum number (9999) when the down arrow is used.
When you click another group box or leave the Advanced tab, invalid entries into the edit box (such as non-numerical input, numbers less than 1, or numbers greater than the maximum allowed) are changed to the last valid value that appeared in the box. The default number of copies is 1.
Because the number of copies can be set in some software programs, conflicts between the software program and the driver can arise. In most cases, the software program and the driver communicate so that the number of copies set in one location (such as the software program) appears in the other (such as the driver). For some software programs, this communication does not take place, and the copies values are treated independently. For example, setting 10 copies in the program and then setting 10 copies in the driver results in 100 copies (10 x 10) being printed. Set the number of copies in the software program, wherever possible.

Collated

The Collated check box is visible when the Copy Count setting is selected. The check box becomes available and can be changed when the Copy Count setting is greater than 1.
When collated, pages print consecutively for each copy of the document. When not collated, copies of each page print together.
This setting is not synchronized with the collate setting in the software program Print dialog box. Settings in the software program override settings in the print driver. For instance, when using Microsoft Word, the Collate check box in the Print dialog box is selected by default. However, in the print driver, the Collated check box on the Advanced tab is not selected by default. The software program setting takes precedence over the driver setting, and the printed output is collated by default. Therefore, if the Collated check box is selected in the driver, but the Collate setting is not enabled in the software program, the printed output is uncollated.
To obtain uncollated printed output, clear the Collate setting in both the driver and the software program.

Graphic

The Graphic control contains the following settings:
  • Image Color Management
  • True Type Fonts
note:
When changing control settings, click on the setting to see the drop-down list for that settings.

Image Color Management

This setting lists the available Image Color Management (ICM) options that are used for printing color graphics. ICM, a set of calculations for color matching, makes it possible for programs to adjust colors before printing so that the color of images on the screen more closely match the color of those images when they are printed. The following options are available:
  • ICM Method. The ICM Method setting specifies how to print the color graphics.
    • To enable Image Color Management, click the option and then select ICM Enabled.
    • If you want the host computer to perform calculations for color matching before it sends the document to the product, select ICM Handled by Host System.
    • If you want the device to perform calculations for color matching, select ICM Handled by Printer. In this case, a set of rules for mapping the colors is created and downloaded to the device. The device uses these rules to adjust colors in the document.
  • ICM Intent. The ICM Intent setting specifies how color images are created to produce the image that looks best on the printed page.
    • When printing a chart or using fully saturated, bright colors, select Graphics.
    • For photographs or pictures where the colors blend together, select Pictures to maximize the contrast. This is the default setting.
    • When the document uses a color that must be matched exactly, and the document is printing on a device that has that specific color of ink, select Proof.
    • To preview the color settings from another device, select Match.

True Type Font

Use Substitute with Device Font (the default setting) to use equivalent printer fonts to print documents that contain TrueType fonts. This permits faster printing, but can eliminate special characters that the equivalent printer font does not support. Select Download as Softfont to download TrueType fonts for printing instead of using printer fonts.

Document Options

The Document Options control contains the following settings:
  • Advanced Printing Features
  • Print Optimizations (HP PCL 6 and PCL 5 drivers)
  • PostScript Options (PS Emulation driver)
  • Printer Features
  • Layout Options
note:
When changing control settings, click the setting to see the drop-down list for that setting.

Advanced Printing Features

When the Advanced Printing Features setting is Enabled, metafile spooling is turned on and Finishing tab options such as Page Order, Booklet Layout, and Pages per Sheet are available, depending on the device. For normal printing, leave the Advanced Printing Features setting at the default (Enabled). If compatibility problems occur, disable the feature. However, some advanced printing features might still be available in the print driver, even if they have been disabled. Selecting an advanced printing feature in the print driver that has been disabled on the Advanced tab automatically makes the feature available.

Print Optimizations

note:
Print Optimizations settings are available only in the HP PCL 6 and PCL 5 drivers. They are not available in the PS Emulation driver.
The default setting for Print Optimizations is Enabled. When this feature is enabled and the document contains overlapping text and graphics, the text that is placed on top of a graphic might not print correctly. If the printed output is not correct, disable this feature. When this feature is disabled, print optimization-features, such as substituting device fonts for TrueType fonts and scanning for horizontal and vertical rules, are turned off.

PostScript Options

note:
PostScript Output Options settings are available only in the PS Emulation driver. They are not available in the HP PCL 6 and PCL 5 drivers.
Select one of the following settings in the PostScript Output Options drop-down menu:
  • Optimize for Speed. This is the default setting.
  • Optimize for Portability. Use this setting to create a file that conforms to the Adobe Document Structuring Conventions (ADSC). Each page of the document is a self-contained object. For example, this option is for creating a postscript file and printing it on a different device.
  • Encapsulated PostScript (EPS). Use this setting to include the file as an image in another document that is to be printed from another program.
  • Archive format. Use this option to create a postscript file that can be used later.
Select one of the following settings in the TrueType Font Download drop-down menu:
  • Automatic. This is the default setting.
  • Outline. Select this option to download the TrueType font as a scalable outline font.
  • Bitmap. Select this option to download the TrueType font as a bitmap font.
  • Native TrueType. If the device is a TrueType rasterizer printer; select this option to download the TrueType font as an outline font.
Select one of the following settings in the PostScript Language Level drop-down menu:
  • 3
  • 2
  • 1
The default setting is 3. It is usually better to select the highest number available, because it provides more features. In some instances, lower numbers might be necessary. For example, when printing a file to disk for someone who has a level-1 device, select 1.
Select one of the following settings in the Send PostScript Error Handler drop-down menu:
  • Yes. This is the default setting. When an error occurs in the print job, an error page is sent to the device.
  • No. Select this setting if you do not want an error page to be printed when an error occurs.

Printer Features

The Printer Features setting contains the following sub-settings:
  • The Edge-To-Edge setting is Off by default. When On is selected, the print area expands to allow printing within 1mm of the edge of the page
  • Print All Text as Black.
    The Print All Text as Black setting is Disabled by default. When Enabled is selected, the driver prints all text as black regardless of the original document text color. Color text is printed as black, except for white text, which remains white. (White text is a reliable method of printing reverse typeface against a dark background.) This setting does not affect graphic images on the page, nor does it affect any text that is part of a graphic.
  • Send TrueType as Bitmap.
    note:
    The Send TrueType as Bitmap. setting is available only in the HP PCL 6 and HP PCL 5 unidrivers. It is not available in the PS Emulation Unidriver.
    Send TrueType as Bitmap provides an alternative for software programs that have trouble using TrueType fonts for special graphic aspects such as shading, rotation, or slanting. The setting is Disabled (off) by default. The TrueType fonts are converted to bitmap soft fonts before downloading. When Enabled, the driver sends TrueType fonts to the printer as outlines, which retains the standard format (outline) of the fonts.
  • Raster Compression
    note:
    The Raster Compression setting is available only in the HP PCL 6 Unidriver. It is not available in the HP PCL 5 Unidriver or the PS Emulation Unidriver.
    Use the Raster Compression feature to select the graphics-compression method:
    • Automatic. The software determines the best compression method to use.
    • Best Quality. This option forces the software to use a lossless compression method. (Lossless means that no data is lost during compression.)
    • Maximum Compression. Where applicable, this option requires the software to always use a lossy compression method (some data is lost).
  • Alternative Letterhead Mode.
    When selected, this option enables you to always load preprinted or letterhead paper types the same way for all print jobs, whether you are printing on one side of the sheet or on both sides of the sheet. Load the paper as you would for printing on both sides.
    If the device tray has an icon that indicates to load the paper either face-up or face-down, load the paper opposite of the orientation shown.
    note:
    When this option is selected, the printing speed slows to the speed required to print on both sides of the sheet.
  • Graphics Mode. (HP PCL 5 driver)
    Use the Graphics Mode feature to select one of the following settings:
    • Send Graphics as Vector. Select this setting to send graphics to the device as a combination of HP Graphics Language, version 2 (HP-GL/2), and raster images. This setting might produce higher-quality output. It is the default setting.
    • Send Graphics as Raster. Select this setting to send all graphics to the device as images composed of individual dots. This setting might improve printing speed in some cases.

Layout Options

The Layout Options setting contains the Page Order sub-setting.
Page Order specifies the order in which the pages of the document are printed. Front to Back prints the document so that page 1 prints first. Back to Front prints the document so that page 1 prints last.
note:
The page-ordering operation works on whole sheets of paper rather than on individual logical pages. Accordingly, if Pages per Sheet (on the Finishing tab) is greater than one, the ordering of logical pages on a physical sheet of paper does not change.

Printing Shortcuts tab features

To gain access to the Printing Shortcuts tab:
  1. Click Start.
  2. For Windows 2000, select Settings, and then click Printers.
    For Windows Vista, Windows XP Professional and Windows Server 2003, click Printers and Faxes.

Paper Options

The settings specified in the Paper Options group box on the Paper/Quality tab apply to all of the pages of the document. The following figure shows the Paper Options group box and the selections that are available by default.
Figure : Paper Options group box
The Paper Options group box contains the following controls:

Page size:

The Page size: setting is a drop-down menu that lists all of the supported paper sizes.
Move the mouse cursor over the dimensions label to change the cursor from an arrow to a gloved hand. Click the dimensions label to toggle between English and metric units.
Because paper-size settings in most software programs override driver settings, it is generally best to use the driver to set paper size only when printing from software programs that do not include a paper-size setting, such as NotePad, or when producing a book or a booklet that does not require different paper sizes.
note:
Certain software programs can override the size command and specify different paper sizes within a single document.
When you change the print-driver setting to a paper size that is not currently loaded in the device, a control-panel message appears that prompts you to load the paper size or select another tray.

Custom Paper Size

The Custom Paper Size dialog box appears when you click Custom… on the Paper/Quality tab. The following figure shows the initial appearance of the Custom Paper Size dialog box.
The Custom Paper Size dialog box for the HP CM8060/CM8050 Color MFP with Edgeline Technology does not reflect the maximum paper size that the HP CM8060/CM8050 Color MFP with Edgeline Technology supports.
Figure : Custom Paper Size dialog box
Name
Use the Name text box to type a new name for a custom paper size.
The name that appears in the Name text box depends on the following conditions:
  • If a saved custom paper size has been selected from the drop-down menu on the Paper/Quality tab, then the Name text box shows the name of the selected custom paper size.
  • If a standard paper size has been selected on the Paper/Quality tab, then the Name text box shows the default name of "Custom."
  • If a new name has been typed into the Name text box for the purpose of saving a new size or renaming an existing size, then that new name will remain in the text box until the new size is saved or the dialog box is closed.
If you type a new name into the Name text box, but then do not click Save, you can change the width and height values without losing the name. However, if you close the dialog box without clicking Save, any unsaved name or size values are lost without warning.
Paper size
Change the width and height values by typing numeric strings into the edit boxes in the Paper Size group box.
Any entry that is greater than the maximum limits of the width and height control is rounded down to the maximum valid entry, while any entry that is smaller than the minimum limits of the width and height control is rounded up to the minimum valid entry.
If units are in millimeters, the custom paper-size range minimum is the limit rounded up to the nearest whole millimeter. The custom paper-size range maximum is the limit rounded down to the nearest whole millimeter. Any non-numerical entry reverts to the last valid entry. Width and height entries are validated when the focus has changed.
The resolution of each control is 1 millimeter or 1/10 of an inch, depending on the current measurement units.
Units
To change measurement units, click one of the options in the Units group box (either Inches or Millimeters).
Custom width and height control limits
The minimum paper size for the HP CM8060/CM8050 Color MFP with Edgeline Technology is 76.2 x 127 mm (3 x 5 inches) and the maximum is 215.9 x 355.6 mm (8.5 x 14 inches). The following table summarizes paper size limits for each paper-handling device.

Paper Source:

The Paper Source: setting specifies the source tray to use for printing a document. The list of source trays depends on the device accessories that are installed. Any optional source trays that are installed through the Device Settings tab also appear here.
The Paper Source: drop-down menu can contain the following options, depending on what has been installed on the device:
  • Automatically select
  • Printer Auto Select
  • Manual Feed in Tray 1
  • Tray 1
  • Tray 2
  • Tray 3
  • Tray 4
  • Tray 5
The default setting is Automatically Select. When this setting is selected, the HP CM8060/CM8050 Color MFP with Edgeline Technology uses the source tray that supports the selected paper size. If you select a source tray other than Automatically select, make sure that the correct paper size is loaded in the source tray.

Paper Type:

The Paper Type: drop-down menu shows all of the paper types that the HP CM8060/CM8050 Color MFP with Edgeline Technology supports. When you use the default setting, Unspecified, the device uses the default paper type, which is usually Plain.
No mechanism exists for manually adding custom paper types through the driver. Custom types can be added only by using the bidirectional communication mechanism, so they must already exist in the device when the bidirectional query occurs. If bidirectional communication is enabled, then an updated list of paper types is returned. If bidirectional communication is not enabled, then the driver looks for custom paper types that have been saved from a previous bidirectional communication query, and uses those. Otherwise, no custom paper types are available through the driver.
Select a paper type instructs the device to use a group of predefined settings to create the best possible print quality for that type of paper.
  caution:
Selecting a paper type that does not match the type of paper that is loaded in the tray can damage the device.
The following standard types appear in the list:
  • Unspecified
  • Plain
  • HP Office LG (long grain) Plain 80g
  • HP Premium Presentation Matte 120g
  • HP Brochure & Flyer Matte 180g
  • HP Cover Matte 200g
  • HP Edgeline Glossy 180g
  • HP Edgeline Glossy 220G
  • Cardstock 160-220g
  • Matte
  • Matte Brochure
  • Matte Cover
  • Labels
  • Letterhead
  • Preprinted
  • Prepunched
  • Colored
  • Bond
  • Recycled
The default setting is Unspecified, and the program selects the paper type. Before selecting a different setting, make sure that the correct paper type is loaded in the tray that is specified in the Paper Source: setting.
If the print-driver setting is changed to a paper type that is not currently loaded in the device, a control-panel message appears that prompts you to load the selected paper type or select another tray.

Special pages:

Use the Special pages: (“page exceptions”) list box to select different trays loaded with different types of paper for different parts of the print job. For example, you can have covers printed on different paper, or you can insert pre-printed pages at designated places to print books.
Select an option in the Special pages: list box, and then click Settings.... Use the Settings dialog box to control the settings for the special pages of the print job. Examples of the dialog boxes for the special pages options are shown in the following figures.
Figure : Covers dialog box
Figure : Print pages on different paper dialog box
Figure : Insert blank or preprinted sheets dialog box
Figure : Chapter separator pages dialog box
note:
Options available in the Settings dialog box change depending on the selection made in the Special pages: list box.

  • A slide bar ranging from Off to High
The SmartFocus settings are Off and On.
Use the following controls to enhance digital images:
  • Contrast Enhancement. Use the Contrast Enhancement setting to increase image contrast for a more visually pleasing result. This filter is useful with flat images (images in which much of the image content is compressed into a small, dynamic range of pixel values). Flat images can result from low lighting, environmental haze, or camera or scanner limitations.
  • Digital Flash. Use the Digital Flash setting to adjust lighting levels to reveal areas in shadow. The filter locates dark areas in an image and brings out detail without degrading other features in the image.
  • SmartFocus. Use the SmartFocus setting to increase the apparent resolution of lower resolution images. Many images that are downloaded from the Internet or from digital cameras can be compressed because of size restrictions, and might exhibit pixilation artifacts when printed. SmartFocus upscales the image to the printer resolution without accentuating these artifacts.
  • Sharpness. Many images are improved by increasing their sharpness. Use the Sharpness setting to make edge detail more prominent. The filter detects regions that contain significant variations in pixel value along a number of different vectors (which denotes edges) and then applies a filter to enhance detail.
  • Smoothing. Just as many images benefit from increased sharpness, many images are improved by smoothing, which decreases noise artifacts that digital cameras or scanners often create. When Smoothing is selected, the filter locates areas that contain abrupt changes in pixel value by comparison with surrounding pixels (which denotes noise) and then applies a filter to smooth the output.

Effects tab features

To gain access to the Effects tab:
  1. Click Start.
  2. For Windows 2000, select Settings, and then click Printers.
    For Windows Vista, Windows XP Professional and Windows Server 2003, click Printers and Faxes.
    For Windows XP Home, click Control Panel, and then double-click the Printers and Faxes icon.
  3. Right-click the driver name.
  4. Click Printing Preferences.
  5. Click the Effects tab.
Use the Effects tab to create unique paper effects such as scaling and watermarks. The following figure shows the Effects tab.
Figure : Effects tab
The Effects tab contains the following controls:

Resizing Options

The Resizing Options group box contains the following controls:
  • Actual Size (default)
  • Print Document On setting
  • Scale to Fit option
  • % of Normal Size setting

Actual Size

Actual Size is the default setting. It prints the document without changing the document size.

Print Document On

Click the Print Document On option to format the document for one paper size and then print the document on a different paper size, with or without scaling the image to fit the new paper size.
The Print Document On control is disabled by either of the following conditions:
  • The % of Normal Size value is not 100.
  • The Pages per Sheet value on the Finishing tab is not 1.
When Print Document On is selected, the drop-down menu shows the paper sizes on which you can print. The list contains all of the standard paper sizes that the selected paper source supports and any custom sizes that have been created. When Print Document On is selected, Scale to Fit is automatically selected. Clear this check box if you do not want the document reduced or enlarged to fit on the selected paper.

Scale to Fit

The Scale to Fit option box specifies whether each formatted document page image is scaled to fit the target paper size. By default, Scale to Fit is selected when Print Document On is selected. If the setting is turned off, then the document page images will not be scaled, and are instead centered at full size on the paper. If the document size is larger than the paper size, then the document image is clipped. If it is smaller, then it is centered within the paper. The following figure shows preview images for a document formatted for Legal-size paper with the Print Document On check box selected and the paper size specified as Letter.
Figure : Preview images – Legal on Letter; Scale to Fit off (left) and on (right)
When the size for which the document is formatted (that is, the logical size) differs from the target size, the preview image uses a dashed gray line to show the boundaries of the logical page in relation to the target page size.

% of Normal Size

The % of Normal Size option provides a slider bar to use for scaling the percentage setting. The default setting in the entry box is 100% of normal size. Normal size is defined as the paper size that is selected within the driver or what the driver receives from the software program (if the software program does not negotiate the paper size with the driver). The driver scales the page by the appropriate factor and sends it to the device.
The limits of the range are from 25% to 400%, and any values outside the range are adjusted to those limits as soon as the focus is removed from the control (that is, when the Tab key is pressed or another control is selected).
Any change to the scale also changes the page preview, which increases or decreases from the upper-left corner of the preview.
The slider bar controls the scale directly. The value in the edit box changes as the slider-bar indicator is dragged, and the document preview image is updated to the new image scale. Each click on the arrows increases or decreases the scale by 1%. Each click on the slider bar affects the scale by 10%.
Dragging the slider-bar indicator does not yield an exact value. Instead, either use the slider-bar indicator to approximate the value and then use the arrows to refine the value, or type the value into the entry box.
The following settings disable % of Normal Size:
  • Print Document On on the Effects tab is selected
  • Pages per Sheet on the Finishing tab is not 1

Document preview image

The document preview image is a line-drawn image of a page that represents graphics and text. The document preview image is always oriented so that the contents of the page are right-side-up.
Move the cursor over the document preview image to change the cursor from an arrow to a gloved hand. Toggle between portrait and landscape page orientation by clicking the image.
Figure : Document preview image

Watermarks

Use the Watermarks feature to select a watermark, create a custom watermark (text only), or edit an existing watermark. The following watermarks are preset in the driver:
  • (none)
  • Confidential
  • Draft
  • SAMPLE
The drop-down menu shows alphabetically sorted watermarks that are currently available on the system plus the string "(none)", which indicates that no watermark is selected. This is the default setting. Any watermark that is selected from this list appears in the preview image.
When the First Page Only check box is selected, the watermark is printed only on the first page of the document. The First Page Only check box is disabled when the current watermark selection is "(none)".
Watermarks are applied to logical pages. For example, when Pages per Sheet is set to "4" and First Page Only is turned off, four watermarks appear on the physical page (one on each logical page).
Click Edit, and the Watermark Details dialog box appears.
Figure : Watermark Details dialog box
The dialog box shows a preview image and provides options for creating a new watermark and controlling the message angle and font attributes.
Click OK to accept all of the changes that are made in the Watermark Details dialog box. However, clicking Cancel does not cancel all of the changes. If you make changes to a watermark and then select a different watermark or click New, all of the changes are saved, and only the current, unsaved changes can be canceled.

Current watermarks

The Current Watermarks group box contains a list of available watermarks, both the predefined watermarks that are available in the driver and any new watermarks that have been created.
To create a new watermark, click New. The new watermark appears in the Current Watermarks list and in the Watermark Message edit box as "Untitled" until you name it. The name typed in the Watermark Message field appears in the Current Watermarks group box in the Watermark Details dialog box and in the Watermarks group box on the Effects tab.
To name the new watermark, type the selected watermark text in the Watermark Message edit box.
To delete a watermark, select the watermark in the Current Watermarks list and click Delete. A warning appears asking whether you are sure you want to delete the selected item. Click Cancel to keep the watermark. Click OK to delete the selected watermark.
note:
No more that 30 watermarks can exist in the Current Watermarks list at one time. When the limit of 30 watermarks is reached, the New button is disabled.
To edit an existing watermark, select the watermark in the Current Watermarks list. If you change the Watermark Message for that watermark, in effect creates a new watermark.

Watermark Message

The Watermark Message is also the name that identifies the watermark in the Current Watermarks list, except when more than one watermark has the same message. For example, you might want several different watermarks can contain the message DRAFT, each with a different typeface or font size. When this occurs, the string is appended with a space, a pound sign, and a number (for example, Draft #2). When a number is added, the number two is used first, but if the resulting name is also in the list, then the number increases until the name is unique (Draft #3, Draft #4, and so on).

Message Angle

Use the controls in the Message Angle group box to print the watermark in different orientations on the page. All settings center the watermark string within the page; the selection of a particular setting affects only the angle of the string placement. The following settings are available:
  • Diagonal. This is the default setting. Select this setting to place the text along a line that spans the lower-left to upper-right corners of the page.
  • Horizontal. Select this setting to place the text along a line that spans the mid-left and mid-right edges of the page.
  • Custom. Select this setting to place the text at the specified angle across the page. Use the numeric spin box to select the angle.

Font Attributes

Use the controls in the Font Attributes group box to change the font and the shading, size, and style of the font.
The Font Attributes group box contains the following controls:
  • Name. The Name drop-down menu lists fonts that are currently installed on the system. The default is language-dependent.
  • Color. The Color drop-down menu contains only one option: Gray.
  • Shading. The default Shading setting for new and preset watermarks is Very Light. The following range of shades is available from the Shading drop-down menu:
    • Lightest
    • Very Light (default)
    • Light

    • Medium
    • Medium Dark
    • Dark
    • Very Dark
    • Darkest
    These values represent the intensity of the gray that is used. Select Light to produce a lightly saturated gray watermark. Select Lightest to produce the lightest shade of watermark. Select Darkest to produce a black watermark.
  • Size. Font sizes from 1 to 999 points are available from the Size menu. The default point size is language-dependent.
  • Style. The following settings are available:
    • Regular
    • Bold
    • Italic
    • Bold Italic
      The default Style setting for new and preset watermarks is Regular.

Figure : Finishing tab
The Finishing tab contains the following controls:

Document options

The Document Options group box contains the following controls:

Print on Both Sides

The default setting for the Print on Both Sides option is off (not selected). Print on Both Sides is available when the following conditions exist:
  • Paper Type: on the Paper/Quality tab is set to any paper type except for the following types:
    • Labels
    • Tough Paper
  • Page size: is set to any paper size except for the following size:
    • Statement
Automatically print on both sides
The duplexing unit in the device prints on two sides of a sheet of paper when the Print on Both Sides option is specified in the print job.
Devices with a duplexer installed support smart duplexing. The smart duplexing feature increases printing performance by preventing one-page print jobs or single-sided pages of a duplexed print job from going through the duplexing unit even when the duplexing feature has been selected in the driver.
All paper types support the smart duplexing feature, except for paper types that cannot be printed on both sides, such as labels, and the following paper types:
  • Prepunched
  • Preprinted
  • Letterhead
When the paper type is set to Unspecified, the smart duplexing feature is disabled.
To achieve the best print quality when printing on the second side of the page, the device makes adjustments to its print modes. Selecting a paper type instructs the device to use a group of settings (such as fuser temperature and print speed) to create an image that has the best possible quality for that paper. This group of settings is known as a print mode. A different print mode is used with each paper type. Print-mode adjustments for the second side of a duplexed page are automatic.

Flip Pages Up

Use the Flip Pages Up check box to specify the duplex-binding option. By default, the Flip Pages Up check box is available only when Print on Both Sides is selected.
The following table demonstrates the results of selecting this check box, depending on the paper orientation selected on the Finishing tab.
Page orientation

Short-edge binding
When Print on Both Sides is selected, the document preview image changes to show a spiral binding along either the left edge or the top edge of the page. In addition, a folded-over corner appears in the lower-right portion of the preview image, indicating that printing occurs on the back side. An arrow on the folded-over corner points in the direction that the pages would be flipped if they were bound together.
Short-side binding is for print jobs with pages that read by flipping over like the pages of a calendar. Long-side binding is for print jobs with pages that read by turning like the pages of a book.

Booklet layout

The Booklet Layout drop-down menu, visible when Print on Both Sides is selected, offers choices that are based on the current paper size. The default setting for the Booklet Printing drop-down menu is Off. The other settings have the following format, where [paper size] depends on the paper size that is set on the Paper/Quality tab:
  • Left Edge Binding
  • Right Edge Binding
Selecting Left Edge Binding or Right Edge Binding changes the document preview image to show the location of the binding. If the Pages per Sheet setting is on the default setting of 1, it automatically changes to 2 pages per sheet. Changing the Pages per Sheet setting manually to 4, 6, 9, or 16 pages per sheet disables the booklet setting.
Book and Booklet Printing
The HP CM8060/CM8050 Color MFP with Edgeline Technology supports book and booklet printing.
A book is a print job that consists of at least two pages. It can have a different paper type for the front cover, first page, other pages, last page, or back cover. Use the special pages settings on the Paper/Quality tab to select the following printing options for the book:
  • Front Cover
  • First Page
  • Other Pages
  • Last Page
  • Back Cover
A booklet is a print job that places two pages on each side of a sheet that can then be folded into a booklet that is half the size of the paper. Use the Booklet Layout drop-down menu on the Finishing tab to control booklet settings.
Print a booklet
Complete the following steps to print a booklet in most software programs:
  1. Click File.
  2. Click Print.
  3. Click Properties.
  4. Click the Finishing tab.
  5. Select the Print on Both Sides check box.
  6. In the Booklet Layout drop-down menu, select the type of booklet printing that you want (for example, Right Edge Binding).
  7. Click OK in the print driver.
  8. Click OK in the print dialog box to print.

Pages per Sheet

Use the Pages per Sheet option to select the number of pages to print on a single sheet of paper.
When printing with more than one page per sheet, the pages appear smaller and are arranged on the sheet in a defined order. The Pages per Sheet drop-down menu provides six settings:
  • 1 page per sheet (default)
  • 2 pages per sheet
  • 4 pages per sheet
  • 6 pages per sheet
  • 9 pages per sheet
  • 16 pages per sheet
note:
Selecting an option other than 1 page per sheet makes booklet printing unavailable.

Print Page Borders

Related controls indented beneath the Pages per Sheet edit box are Print Page Borders and Page Order, which become active when Pages per Sheet is greater than 1.
Print Page Borders sets a line around each page image on a printed sheet to help visually define the borders of each logical page.

Page Order

The Page Order drop-down menu contains four selections:
  • Right, then Down
  • Down, then Right
  • Left, then Down
  • Down, then Left
The preview document image changes to reflect alterations in these settings, as shown by the examples in the following figure.
Figure : Page-order preview images
  • 2 pages per sheet
  • 4 pages per sheet
  • 6 pages per sheet
  • 9 pages per sheet
  • 16 pages per sheet

Document preview image

Move the cursor over the document preview image to change the cursor from an arrow to a gloved hand. Toggle between portrait and landscape page orientation by clicking the image.
Figure : Document preview image

Orientation

Orientation refers to the layout of the image on the page, and does not affect the way that paper feeds into the device.
note:
Nearly all software programs establish the orientation for the printed page, so the page orientation in the driver is useful only for the few software programs that do not set an orientation.
The Orientation group box contains two options:
  • Portrait. The top edge of the document is the shorter edge of the paper. This is the default orientation.
  • Landscape. The top edge of the document is the longer edge of the paper.
In addition to the Portrait and Landscape orientation options, you can select the Rotate by 180 degrees check box. This creates a landscape or portrait orientation in which the image is rotated 180°. This setting is useful for printing prepunched paper.
Toggle orientation between portrait and landscape by clicking the document preview image. Selecting the Rotate by 180 degrees check box does not change the document preview image.

Figure : Job Storage tab
The Job Storage tab contains the following controls:

Status group box

The unlabeled group box on the Job Storage tab contains a status message about the destination of a print job. The status information changes depending on the selections that are made on the Job Storage tab.

Job Storage Mode

Use the Job Storage Mode options on the HP CM8060/CM8050 Color MFP with Edgeline Technology to store documents at the device and then control their printing at the device control panel.
The HP CM8060/CM8050 Color MFP with Edgeline Technology offers the following Job Storage Mode options:

Off

When selected, this option turns the job-storage feature off (it is disabled), which means that the print job will not be stored in the device.

Proof and Hold

To use the Proof and Hold option, the job-storage feature must be enabled.
When selected, this option stores the print job in memory and prints only the first copy of the job, allowing you to check the first copy. If the document prints correctly, print the remaining copies of the print job at the control panel. Set the number of proof-and-hold print jobs that can be stored in the device at the control panel.
After it is released for printing, the proof-and-hold job is immediately deleted from the device. If more copies are needed, reprint the job from the software program. Sending a second proof-and-hold job that has the same user name and job name as an existing proof-and-hold job (when the original job has not been released for printing), overwrites the existing job. Proof-and-hold jobs are deleted when the device is turned off.
The device configuration holds a maximum of 50 quick-copy or proof-and-hold jobs. The number is set at the device control panel in the CONFIGURATION menu, and the default is 32. When this preset limit is reached, the new document overwrites the oldest held document. Also, sending a document that has the same user name and job name as one that is already stored on the device memory overwrites the existing document.

Personal Job

To use the Personal Job option, the job-storage feature must be enabled.
When Personal Job is selected, the print job is sent to the device but is not printed until a selection is made on the device control panel. Selecting Personal Job activates the PIN group box. The print job can be printed only after the correct PIN is typed at the control panel. After the job is printed, the job is immediately deleted from the device. This feature is useful when printing sensitive or confidential documents should not remain in an output bin after printing.
The Personal Job/PIN coupling has a PIN restriction of four ASCII numeric characters (0 though 9). Any non-numeric characters are removed immediately. When more than four characters are typed, the characters past the fourth are truncated. The field temporarily accepts fewer than four digits in the string, but when the edit field loses focus, zeroes pad the left end until the PIN contains exactly four digits. The default initialized value for the PIN is 0000 for Personal Job.
After it is released for printing, the personal job is immediately deleted from the device. If more copies are needed, reprint the job from the software program. Sending a second personal job that has the same user name and job name as an existing personal job (when the original job has not been released for printing) overwrites the existing job, regardless of the PIN. Persoanl jobs are deleted when the device is turned off.

Quick Copy

To use the Quick Copy option, the job-storage feature must be enabled.
After the job prints, use the device control panel to print more copies of the job.

Stored Job

To use the Stored Job option, the job-storage feature must be enabled.
When Stored Job is selected, the job will be stored in the device as if it is an electronic file cabinet. Nothing will be printed until the job is requested from the device control panel. Use this storage for forms and other common or shared documents. Selecting Stored Job activates the PIN group box. The print job can be printed only after the correct PIN is typed at the control panel.

Make Job Personal

Require PIN is available when Stored Job is selected. Select the PIN to Print box, then type a four-digit PIN number in the box provided. The stored job is sent to the device, where the user must type the four-digit PIN on the control panel to retrieve the stored job.
The PIN to Print box is selected, but not available, when Personal Job is selected. Type a four-digit PIN number in the box provided. The stored job is sent to the device, where the user must type the four-digit PIN on the control panel to retrieve the stored job.

Job Notification Options

Clicking a Job Storage Mode selection causes the User Name and Job Name options to become available. The Display Job ID when printing check box is selected by default. The Display Job ID when printing option opens a pop-up dialog box when the job-storage print job is printed. The dialog box shows the user name and job name that are associated with the stored print job, as well as the device name, port, and location.

User Name

Use the User Name settings to help identify the job at the device control panel. The following are the User Name settings:
  • Windows User Name. This option associates the MS Windows user name with the stored print job. The MS Windows user name automatically appears in the text field below the Windows User Name options.
  • Custom. Use this option to type a custom name for the stored print job. Clicking Custom makes the text field below the option available. The User Name field can contain no more than 16 characters, and is limited to A through Z and 0 through 9 because the name appears on the device control-panel display. Any typed lowercase character automatically shifts to uppercase. Any typed character in an ASCII code of fewer than 32 or more than 126 characters is removed from the edit field, along with all of the characters that follow it. Any character beyond 16 is truncated.

Job Name

Use the Job Name options to specify a name to identify the job at the device control panel. The following are the Job Name settings:
  • <Automatic>. This option, which is the default selection, automatically generates the job name that is associated with the stored print job. The file name of the print job is used if it is available to the print driver. Otherwise, the software program name or a time stamp is used for the job name. The file name of the print job is used if it is available to the print driver. Otherwise, the software program name or a time stamp is used for the job name.
  • Custom. Use this to type a custom job name for the stored print job. When you click the Custom, the text field below the option becomes available. In those languages for which <Automatic> cannot be translated without the use of invalid characters, the driver uses a string of three dashes. The acceptable characters for job name and user name vary for each operating system. The string must be of a length and type that can appear on the device control-panel display.
The Job Name field can contain no more than 16 characters, and is limited to A through Z (uppercase or lowercase) and 0 through 9 so that the name can appear on the device control-panel display. Any typed lowercase character automatically shifts to uppercase. Any typed character in an ASCII code of fewer than 32 or more than 126 characters is removed from the edit field, along with all of the characters that follow it. Any character beyond 16 is truncated.
When the dialog box is closed, or as soon as the focus is removed from the control (that is, when the TAB key is pressed or another control is selected), an empty string is replaced with <Automatic>. The acceptable characters for job name and user name vary for each operating system. The string must be of a length and type that can appear on the device control-panel display.
If Job Name Exists. When storing a print job, create a print-job name or allow the device software to assign one automatically. If a print job that has the same name already exists, the new print job overwrites the existing print job. To eliminate the chances of a new print job overwriting an old print job because both have the same name, select Use Job Name + (1-999). When the print-job name exists, the device software assigns a number between 1 and 999 to the end of the print job name to make it unique. Select Replace Existing File to always have the device software overwrite an existing print job that has the same print job name.

Color Themes

The Color Themes group box contains the following settings:

Default (sRGB)

Select Default (sRGB) for most printing needs. This setting instructs the device to interpret RGB color as sRGB, which is the accepted standard of Microsoft and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Colors are matched to optimize the RGB colors on the screen and to provide vivid images and graphics.

Image Optimization (sRGB)

Select Image optimization (sRGB) to enhance documents in which the content is mainly bitmap images, such as .GIF or .JPG files. This setting instructs the device to use the best color matching for rendering sRGB bitmap images. This setting affects only raster data; it has no effect on text or vectorbased graphics. Using glossy paper in combination with this setting provides the maximum enhancement.

Adobe RGB (1998)

Select AdobeRGB (1998) for documents that use the Adobe RGB color space rather than sRGB. For example, some digital cameras capture images in Adobe RGB, and documents that are produced with Adobe Photoshop® use the Adobe RGB color space. When printing from a professional software program that uses Adobe RGB, turn off the color management in the software program and allow the device software to manage the color space.

Vivid (sRGB)

Select Vivid (sRGB) to reproduce graphics (for example, pie charts and bar graphs) with more saturated colors. This option can be useful when printing business documents that do not contain images.

Custom Profile

Select Custom Profile when you want to duplicate the printed output from other devices or for using special effects, such as sepia tones. This setting instructs the device to use a custom input profile to more accurately predict and control color output.
The default Custom Profile is an emulation of the color table used on the device. The device holds only one custom profile at a time, so when you download and install another color table, it erases the default color table and installs the new one.
Download custom profiles from the following Web site:

Document preview image

The document preview image is a line-drawn image of a page that represents graphics and text. The document preview image is always oriented so that the contents of the page are right-side-up.
Move the cursor over the document preview image to change the cursor from an arrow to a gloved hand. Toggle between portrait and landscape page orientation by clicking the image.

Figure : HP PCL 6 driver Device Settings tab
The following figure shows the Device Settings tab for the PS Emulation driver.
The Device Settings tab contains the following controls:

Form to Tray Assignment

A system administrator can use Form to Tray Assignment to specify the paper size in each input tray.
The HP CM8060/CM8050 Color MFP with Edgeline Technology supports more than one source of paper. Assign a form (which defines the paper size and margins) to each paper source. When a form is matched to a source, select the form to print. The device prints from the tray to which that form is assigned.
System administrators can use the Form to Tray Assignment setting to specify, in the driver, the paper size that is loaded into each available input tray. The use of forms constrains the choices that are available in the paper-size list on the Paper/Quality tab in the Printing Preferences driver tabs. This constraint prevents (or reduces the likelihood of) tying up the device with paper-mount messages that occur when users request sizes or types that are not available.
The trays listed in the Form to Tray Assignment setting include standard trays and optional accessory trays. Generally, items that are installed separately have a separate Installable Options setting.
The input trays listed here are also listed as paper sources on the Paper/Quality tab.
Configuring the trays
  1. Select the appropriate tray in the Form to Tray Assignment list.
  2. Use the drop-down menu to select the paper size (or form) that is loaded in that tray.
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for the remaining trays.
  4. Click OK to enable the settings, or, if necessary, click Cancel to reconfigure all the trays and remove the size and type constraints that have been imposed on the Paper/Quality tab.

PS Emulation driver Device Settings

The following controls are available and appear only in the PS Emulation driver Device Settings tab:

Available PostScript Memory

This control specifies the amount of available postscript memory and provides a spin box for changing this value. The available postscript memory is a subset of the device total physical memory. It is usually best to set the postscript memory to match the total RAM that appears on the configuration page. To print a configuration page from the device control panel:
  1. Touch Administration.
  2. Touch Information.
  3. Touch Configuration/Status Pages.
  4. Touch Configuration Page.
  5. Touch Print.

Output Protocol

This control specifies the protocol that the device uses for print jobs. The following options are available:
  • ASCII (default)
  • TBCP
  • Binary
Click ASCII to send data in ASCII format (7-bit), which might take longer to print but can be sent through any I/O channel, such as a serial or network port.
Click TBCP (Tagged Binary Communications Protocol) to send all data except special control characters in binary (8-bit) format. The binary formats can be sent over serial communications ports and are faster than sending data in ASCII format.
Click Binary to send all data except special control characters in binary (8-bit) format. The binary formats can be sent over serial communications ports and are faster than sending data in ASCII format.

Send Ctrl-D Before Each Job

This control specifies whether the device is reset at the beginning of every postscript document. The default setting is No. Pressing Ctrl-D resets the device to its default setting to ensure that previous print jobs do not affect the current print job. Using Ctrl-D might cause a print job to fail if the device is connected through a network. If the document fails to print when sent to a device connected through serial ports, change No to Yes.

Send Ctrl-D After Each Job

This control specifies whether the device is reset at the end of every postscript document. The default setting is Yes. Pressing Ctrl-D resets the device to its default setting to ensure that future print jobs are not affected by the current print job. Using Ctrl-D might cause a print job to fail if the device is connected through a network. If the document fails to print when sent to a network device, change Yes to No.

Convert Gray Text to PostScript Gray

This control specifies whether to convert the true gray value (RGB) in text to the gray that the driver provides. The following settings are available:
  • Yes
  • No (default)

Convert Gray Graphics to PostScript Gray

This control specifies whether to convert the true gray value (RGB) in graphics to the gray provided by the driver. The following settings are available:
  • Yes
  • No (default)

Add Euro Currency Symbol to PostScript Fonts

This control specifies whether to add the euro symbol to the device fonts. The following settings are available:
  • Yes (default)
  • No

Job Timeout

This control specifies how long the document can take to get from the computer to the device before the device stops trying to print the document. If you specify 0 seconds, the device continues trying to print indefinitely. The default setting is 0 seconds. Use the spin box to change this value, up to a maximum of 32,767 seconds.

Wait Timeout

This control specifies how long the device waits to get more postscript information from the computer. After the specified time passes, the device stops trying to print the document and prints an error message. When printing a very complicated document, increase this value. If you specify 0 seconds, the device waits indefinitely. The default setting is 300 seconds. Use the spin box to change this value, up to a maximum of 32,767 seconds.

Minimum Font Size to Download as Outline

This control specifies the minimum font size (in pixels) for which the driver downloads TrueType fonts as outline (Type 1) fonts. Any font smaller than the minimum setting is downloaded as a bitmap (Type 3) font. Use this option to fine-tune the Automatic setting for the TrueType Font Download option on the Advanced tab in Document Defaults. The default setting is 100 pixel(s). Use the spin box to change this value, up to a maximum of 32,767 pixels.

Maximum Font Size to Download as Bitmap

This control specifies the maximum font size (in pixels) for which the driver will download TrueType fonts as bitmap (Type 3) fonts. Any font larger than the maximum setting will be downloaded as an outline (Type 1) font. Use this option to fine-tune the Automatic setting or override the Send TrueType as Bitmap setting for the TrueType Font Download option on the Advanced tab in Document Defaults. The default setting is 600 pixel(s). Use the spin box to change this value, up to a maximum of 32,767 pixels.

Installable Options

Automatic Configuration

Use the Device Settings tab to tell the driver about the hardware configuration of the device. If bidirectional communication is enabled in a supported environment, set up this tab by selecting the Update Now setting in the Automatic Configuration setting. The default setting is Off. After an automatic configuration, the setting returns to Off after the changes are made.
If the computer environment does not support bidirectional communication, the Update Now setting is unavailable, the options on this tab must be manually configured.
If more than one driver is installed for the device (for example, the default HP PCL 6 and PCL 5 drivers), the Update Now feature works automatically only on the driver on which it is activated. The other driver will not be updated, and might show the default setting for the specific device model.

HP 4000-Sheet Input Tray (Tray 5)

This control specifies whether the optional high-capacity Tray 5 is installed on the device. The default setting is Not Installed.

Accessory Output Bin

This control specifies whether the accessory output bin or an optional finisher is installed on the device. The default setting is HP Single Output Bin.

Printer Memory

This option matches the setting to the amount of memory that is installed in the device. The driver generates ranges of memory that can be selected, up to the maximum that the device can accept. The driver can use this information to manage how the print driver uses the device memory.

Printer Hard Disk

When this option is enabled, the Job Storage option and the Mopier Mode are enabled in the print driver. This option is enabled by default. Use the Job Storage option to store print jobs and then print them later from the control panel. The multiple-original print (mopy) function is an HP-designed feature that produces multiple, collated copies from a single print job.
note:
A hard disk is required for the device to perform most tasks. The check box is available only for troubleshooting purposes.

Job Storage

When Job Storage is enabled, the device can store print jobs so that you can gain access to those print jobs later at the control panel. This option is enabled by default.

Mopier Mode

This option is enabled by default.
  caution:
Disabling Mopier Mode disrupts functionality for the Output and Finishing tab features.
If Mopier Mode is Disabled, the Output and Finishing tab features might not function as expected or might not function at all. For example, all the pages in a print job might be stapled together when they should be collated.
The multiple-original print (mopy) function is an HP-designed feature that produces multiple, collated copies from a single print job. Multiple-original printing (mopying) increases performance and reduces network traffic by transmitting the job to the device once, and then storing it in memory. The remainder of the copies are printed at the fastest speed. All documents that are printed in mopier mode can be created, controlled, managed, and finished from the computer, which eliminates the extra step of using a photocopier.
The HP CM8060/CM8050 Color MFP with Edgeline Technology supports the transmit-once mopying feature when the Mopier Mode: setting on the Device Settings tab is Enabled.
Use the HP PCL 6, PCL 5, or PS Emulation driver to perform mopying in one of two ways: either through the software or through the device hardware. When the mopier is enabled, mopying takes place through the device hardware by default. One copy of a multiple-page print job is transmitted once through the network to the device, together with a printer job language (PJL) command directing the device to make the specified number of copies.
When the mopier is disabled, mopying is not necessarily disabled. The driver can perform through the software rather than the device hardware (the mopying path that is disabled when you change the Mopy Mode setting to Disabled). However, sending a multiple-copy print job when the mopier is disabled eliminates the advantage of transmitting the print job once, because the job is sent through the network for each copy.

Mopier mode and collation

  caution:
Disabling Mopier Mode disrupts functionality for the Output and Finishing tab features.
If Mopier Mode is Disabled, the Output and Finishing tab features might not function as expected or might not function at all. For example, all the pages in a print job might be stapled together when they should be collated.
Mopying and collating print jobs are independent but closely related functions. The print driver performs mopying, sending original print jobs to the device. The print driver or the document software program control collation. The mopying mode is selected by default in the driver, and can be disabled by changing the Mopier Mode setting on the Device Settings tab to Disabled.
Control collation through the print driver by selecting or clearing the Collated check box on the Advanced tab. Clear the check box, which is available only when the Copy Count option is set to more than 1 copy, to allow the software program to control collation.
To receive uncollated multiple copies of a print job, you must clear the Collated check box and make sure that the software program collation feature is not selected.
The following table shows the relation between mopier mode settings and collation settings in the software program and the driver. The first three columns show the settings. The last column, "Expected result", shows how a 3-page print job would appear.

Postscript Passthrough (PS Emulation driver only)

Postscript Passthrough is enabled by default, and must be enabled for most print jobs. Postscript passthrough provides additional capabilities for some software programs when printing to a postscript driver. Options such as Watermarks, n-up and Booklet Printing might not print correctly from some software programs with Postscript Passthrough enabled, because such programs send postscript information that the driver cannot control. Other programs might print using these options without problems. Select Disabled and print the document again if you encounter problems.
note:
In some cases, disabling Postscript Passthrough can cause unexpected results within a software program.

JPEG Passthrough (PS Emulation driver only)

The JPEG Passthrough setting contains the following options:
  • Disable. When this option is selected, images sent as JPEG are printed as bitmaps, resulting in faster printing.
  • Enable. When this option is selected, images sent as JPEG are printed as JPEG (JPEG passthrough).
  • Auto. When this option is selected, the device connection type is automatically detected. For network (TCP/IP) connections, JPEG passthrough is disabled. For DOT4 and USB connections, JPEG passthrough is enabled.
