    Content Orientation

    For some features to work correctly, specify the way the content of the original document is placed on the page.

    If you are making two-sided copies, select a 2-sided format option.

    Orientation:

    • Portrait: The short edge of the page is along the top.

    • Landscape: The long edge of the page is along the top.

    2-Sided Format:

    • Book-style: The back side of the original is printed right-side-up, and the back side of the copy is printed the same way. Use this option for originals and copies that are bound along the left edge.

    • Flip-style: The back side of the original is printed upside-down, and the back side of the copy is printed the same way. Use this option for originals and copies that are to be bound along the top edge.

    • Book-style original; Flip-style copy: The back side of the original is printed right-side-up, but the back side of the copy is printed upside-down. Use this option when the original is bound along the left edge, but the copies need to be bound along the top edge.

    • Flip-style original; Book-style copy: The back side of the original is printed upside-down, but the back side of the copy is printed right-side-up. Use this option when the original is bound along the top edge, but the copies need to be bound along the left edge.

    Pages per Sheet

    Select how many pages to print on one sheet and the page order: to copy to one, two, or four Pages per Sheet and select whether to Add page borders.

    Pages per Sheet

    • One (1)

    • Two (2)

    • Four (4)

    Page Order

    • Right, then down: Prints the pages in rows

    • Down, then right: Prints the pages in columns

    Click the Add page borders check box to add borders on the pages.

    Image Adjustment

    Use the settings to improve the overall quality of the copy. For example, adjust the Darkness and Sharpness, and use the Background Cleanup setting to remove faint images from the background or to remove a light background color.

    • Darkness: Adjust to increase or decrease the amount of white and black in the colors

    • Contrast: Adjust to increase or decrease the difference between the lightest and darkest color on the page

    • Background Cleanup: Adjust if you are having trouble copying a faint image

    • Sharpness: Adjust to sharpen or soften the image. For example, increasing the sharpness could make text look clearer, but decreasing it could make photographs look smoother.

    Optimize Text/Picture

    Select an option for how to handle output of a particular type content being printed:

    • Manually adjust: Manually optimize the setting for each document

    • Text: Use for documents that contain mostly text

    • Printed picture: Use for line drawings and preprinted images, such as magazine clippings or pages from books

      Note:

      If bands of irregular intensity print on the copies, try selecting Printed picture to improve the quality.

    • Photograph: Use for photographic prints

    Select an Optimize For value for the manual adjustment.

    Edge-to-Edge

    Use to avoid shadows that can display along the edges of copies when the original document is printed close to the edges.

    Combine this feature with the Reduce/Enlarge feature to ensure that the entire page is printed on the copies.

    When the Edge-to-Edge feature is turned on, the printer minimizes margins and prints as close to the edge of the paper as possible.

    Erase Edges

    Use the Erase Edges options if you want to remove content or lines along the edges of the page.

    Select Use Inches to use inches instead of millimeters.

    Define the erase options for Front Side and Back Side, including the width to erase on each edge.

    Collate

    For printers that support print-job finishing, each set of copied pages are assembled in the same order as the original document.

    Note:

    If the printer has a stapler installed, select a staple option. To not staple the copies, select None.

    Select a Collate option.

    • Collate on (Sets in page order): If making more than one copy, select to assemble pages in the correct order for each set of copies.

    • Collate off (Pages grouped): Select to group the same pages together. For example, if making five copies of an original document that has two pages, all five first pages are grouped together and all five second pages are grouped together.

    Image Preview

    Select an Image Preview option:

    • Disable preview

    • Make optional

    • Require preview

  2. Click Apply to save the settings.
