Using the Embedded Web Server to submit files
From the HP Utility or the Embedded Web Server, select Job Center > Submit Job. With some Web browsers, you will see the window below; with other Web browsers, the mechanism for adding files is slightly different.
Figure : Submit Job page
Press the Add files button (or Choose File, Add another file) to choose the files from your computer that you want to print. The files must be in one of the following formats:
  • HP-GL/2
  • RTL
  • CALS/G4
  • PDF (with the PostScript upgrade only)
  • PostScript (with the PostScript upgrade only)
  • TIFF (with the PostScript upgrade only)
  • JPEG (with the PostScript upgrade only)
  note:
When you print to a file, the file should be in one of the above formats, but its name may have an extension such as .plt or .prn.
If the files are not in one of these formats, they will not be printed successfully.
If the jobs have been generated with the appropriate settings (such as page size, rotation, resizing and number of copies), you can just press the Print button and the project will be sent to the printer.
If you need to specify printing settings, go to the Job settings section and select the options you need. Each option has explanatory text on the right, so that you can understand the behavior of each setting. Remember that, if you leave the setting as Default, the setting saved in the job will be used. If the job contains no setting, the setting in the printer will be used.
Using printer emulation
Printer emulation can be requested by selecting Advanced settings > Color > Color management > Printer emulation.
You can select Off (no printer emulation) or the name of the printer model that you want to emulate.
This setting will apply to jobs that do not contain any printer emulation setting saved in the job.
Using clip contents by margins
You can select this margins option from Advanced settings > Paper > Layout/Margins > Print with margins > Layout > Clip contents by margins.
Use this option when the contents to be printed have white borders and a size equal to that of the paper you have selected. The printer will use the white border for its margins and you will get a page of size equal to that which is selected in the driver.
