The Adobe PostScript Printers dialog box appears when Windows restarts... If you do not see it, double-click the Adobe PostScript Printers icon in the Windows Program Manager Control Panel...

Page 28

When you install a printer, Windows assigns it to a default printer port... If the DocuColor is connected to your computer through a network or you want to assign it to a different port, you need to change the port assignment... For information on which port to use, see your system administrator...

Page 29

To print to a file, select FILE... Printing to a file is useful if the DocuColor is off-site... However, if you select the FILE port, you cannot print to a printer until you select a network or printer port... (In some applications, you can select the FILE port from the Print dialog box; this is preferable for temporary use since it doesnt require resetting the port in the Control Panel... )

Page 30

If you are printing to a file, select FILE... Printing to a file is useful if the printer is elsewhere... However, if you select the FILE port, you cannot print to a printer until you select a network or printer port... If you select Network, the next window depends on the NetWare client driver version...

Page 31

Setting up printing with Windows 95 You can print to the printer from your Windows 95 workstation in several ways... First, you need to install the Adobe PostScript Printer Driver for Windows (included with the user software) and the printer description file (PPD) on your computer...

Page 32

The default setting for this option is 5 seconds, which is not adequate for spooling... Setting this option to 10 seconds ensures that spooling is not interrupted due to timeout... The Port Timeout in Seconds option is accessed from the Network Setup section of Setup... You can change this Setup option from the Control Panel or from the Command WorkStation... An Administrator password may be required to access Setup... For instructions, see the Administrator Guide...
