Jobs continue to process on the DocuColor and after you make the copies, you can select Resume Printing and the copier will continue printing jobs...

Page 18

Run Diagnostics This command is provided for service representatives... Use the line selection buttons to select the diagnostic test you want to run and choose OK... Contact your authorized service/support technician for information about these diagnostics...

Page 19

NOTE: If a job from the Print Queue is processing, it will continue processing and print after the DocuColor is restarted; if a job sent to the direct connection is processing, it will not finish processing or printing...

Page 20

Shutting down the DocuColor You may need to shut down the DocuColor for service... When you do so, fonts that have been downloaded to the hard disk drive are not deleted... Print jobs in the Printed queue and jobs that have been processed but not printed are not deleted and are available for printing when you restart the DocuColor...

Page 21

Printing from applications Before you can print to the DocuColor from applications, you must select the DocuColor in the Chooser... Then, using the Adobe PostScript printer driver and the correct PostScript Printer Description (PPD) file, you can control many DocuColor printing features by specifying job settings from print dialog boxes...

Page 22

Setting print options With Macintosh computer applications, print options are set from both the Page Setup dialog box and the Printer Specific Options dialog box... For details, see Appendix D, Setting Job Overrides...

Page 23

These print options are specific to the DocuColor... They override settings in Printer Setup on the DocuColor Control Panel; you can also override some of these settings in the WebSpooler or in the Spooler Override Print Settings dialog box... For information about these options and overrides, see Appendix D, Setting Job Overrides...

Page 24

Some PPD options can also be set from within an application... In these cases, use the DocuColor PPD option to perform the function, rather than setting it from the application... (The application may not set up the file properly for printing on the DocuColor and may also take longer to process... )

Page 25

NOTE: For information on setting up the Windows environment for printing with Windows servers connected to the DocuColor, see the Administrator Guide... For information on how to connect to the DocuColor over the network, install printer drivers, and install the utilities, see Getting Started...

Page 26

In the Paper Source pop-up menu, specify the paper tray to use for the job... For example, you can specify that the job should be printed on pages in the Bypass tray... Tray selection is valid for the current job only...

Page 27

NOTE: If paper loaded in the selected tray is a different size, orientation, and/or media type than that of the job you are sending, the DocuColor displays an error message and the job will not print... You should then load the correct paper in the selected tray or cancel the job...

Page 28

These print options are specific to the DocuColor... They override settings in Printer Setup on the DocuColor Control Panel; you can also override some of these settings in the WebSpooler or Spooler Override Print Settings dialog box... For information about these options and overrides, see Appendix D, Setting Job Overrides...

Page 29

As a rule, the Color Rendering Dictionaries (CRDs) are not used when printing from PostScript 1 applications... However, for the Microsoft Office 95 and Microsoft Office 97 suites of applications, you can enable CRDs with this setting...

Page 30

Setting options and printing with Windows 3... 1x Once you have installed the DocuColor printer driver file, you can select the printer settings you prefer... You can also change settings for a particular file when you print the file to the DocuColor...

Page 31

NOTE: If paper loaded in the selected tray is a different size, orientation, and/or media type than that of the job you are sending, the DocuColor displays an error message and the job will not print... You should then load the correct paper in the selected tray or cancel the job...

Page 32

These print options are specific to the DocuColor (you must scroll to see all the pop- up menus)... They override settings in Setup on the DocuColor Control Panel; you can also override some of these settings in the WebSpooler or Spooler Override Print Settings dialog box... For information about these options and overrides, see Appendix D, Setting Job Overrides...

Page 33

The notes you enter in the Notes 1 and Notes 2 areas are kept in memory and appear automatically in this dialog box when you print subsequent jobs... You can edit these notes if necessary for subsequent jobs...

Page 34

NOTE: If paper loaded in the selected tray is a different size, orientation, and/or media type than that of the job you are sending, the DocuColor displays an error message and the job will not print... You should then load the correct paper in the selected tray or cancel the job...

Page 35

These print options are specific to the DocuColor (you must scroll to see all the options)... They override settings in Printer Setup on the DocuColor Control Panel; you can also override some of these settings in the WebSpooler or Spooler Override Print Settings dialog box... For information about these options and overrides, see Appendix D, Setting Job Overrides...

Page 36

Saving files to print at a remote location If you do not have a DocuColor and are preparing files to take to a service bureau or other location, print your final files to the File port (as opposed to one of the local ports)... You can also print to the File port to create a file to be downloaded using the Downloader... For instructions, see your Windows documentation...

Page 37

Using Downloader to print Downloading files with Downloader is generally faster than printing from application software... You can use Downloader to print PostScript files or EPS files...

Page 38

Printing to the DocuColor You can use UNIX commands to print PostScript files and text files to the DocuColor... In general, the basic printing commands (lpr, lpq, lprm) can be used to send print jobs to a DocuColor... See your UNIX manual pages or other documentation for information about UNIX commands...

Page 39

For example, if the Print queue of your DocuColor is named print_Server, your file is named Sample, and you want to print two copies, type:

Page 40

On a system running Solaris 2 or any System V implementation of UNIX, use the cancel command to remove jobs from the queue...

Page 41

If you have been given the Spooler password, you can manage job flow and override print settings of all jobs... If not, you can still manage job flow and override print settings of your own jobs, as well as track the status of all other jobs... Check with your site administrator for information on Spooler access privileges...

Page 42

Tracking and managing jobs Spooler lets you monitor and manipulate the print jobs that you send to the DocuColor... It also lets system administrators track and manage all users print jobs...

Page 43

Printed The jobs most recently sent to the DocuColor are saved in the Printed queue... You can drag these jobs back to the Print queue to print additional copies... The number of jobs saved in the Printed queue is set by your system administrator in Setup on the DocuColor Control Panel...

Page 44

Jobs that have been printed are saved in this list... Jobs are stored in the Printed queue until the limit set by your system administrator in Setup on the DocuColor Control Panel is reached... The jobs can be selected and deleted from the DocuColor hard disk...

Page 45

Drag a file onto this button or select the document and click this button to delete it or cancel processing or printing it... You will be asked to verify that you want to delete the job... You can eliminate the verification notice by turning off the Confirm file deletion option in the Preferences dialog box...

Page 46

NOTE: When automatic updating is on, data is coming from the DocuColor across the network very frequently... This data adds to the network traffic, and may slow down other network jobs... For optimum network performance, turn off automatic updating in the Spooler Preferences dialog box; when you want to view updated information in the Spooler window, choose Update from the Window menu or click the Update button...

Page 47

The selected job is highlighted... If you want to select more than one job, Shift-click to select multiple, adjacent jobs; Ctrl-click to select multiple, non-adjacent jobs...

Page 48

Changing print settings for a job You can set certain printing parameters for a job in the Override Print Settings dialog box... The settings in this dialog box override the settings in the Printer Specific Options (Mac OS)/Options (Windows) dialog box and in Setup on the DocuColor Control Panel...

Page 49

Using the Job Log With Spooler, you can view and print a log of all the jobs printed to the DocuColor... You can also save the Job Log as a text file that you can then import into a spreadsheet or word processing application for job accounting purposes... All jobs printed to the queues, printed by direct connection, and scanned from the copier are listed in the Job Log...

Page 50

ERROR A PostScript error occurred while a job was processing... You can double-click ERROR to display the error message... A dialog box displays the PostScript error... Click OK to close the dialog box...

Page 51

NOTE: You can also use standard LaserWriter downloaders, such as the Adobe Font Downloader, with the DocuColor... Downloader was designed specifically for the DocuColor; you cannot use Downloader with any other printer...

Page 52

Buttons for some menu functions display in the Toolbar at the top of the window... Click the button to perform the function... The buttons are:

Page 53

Printing with Downloader Printing PostScript files with Downloader is fastgenerally faster than printing from within applications... If you regularly print large files, be sure to try printing with Downloader...

Page 54

You can leave this at the default All Known Formats, or select All Files... All Known Formats lists all files in formats supported by Downloader; All Files lists all files...

Page 55

showpage after EPS filesIn most cases, you do not need to use this option... Select the showpage option only if an EPS file fails to print without it... This option adds a showpage PostScript language command at the end of the print job... Some applications omit this necessary PostScript language command when they generate EPS files... Select this option when printing EPS files generated by these applications... If you select this option unnecessarily, extra blank pages may print...

Page 56

Like all PostScript fonts, the fonts included with the DocuColor come in two forms: printer fonts and screen fonts... The printer fonts are installed permanently on the DocuColors hard disk... The screen fonts, which are included with the DocuColor, should be installed on Macintosh computers... If you are using these fonts in documents you print on a LaserWriter, they are probably already installed... If not, youll need to install them yourself... See Getting Started for instructions...

Page 57

Before you print PostScript or EPS files using Downloader, make sure that all fonts included in your file are installed in the DocuColor... If your file contains fonts that are not installed on the DocuColor, the text in these fonts will not print correctly and may not print at all... With some applications, you can include fonts when you create PostScript files... See your application software for information...

Page 58

WebSpooler WebTool The WebSpooler WebTool is a utility that resides on the DocuColor but can be accessed over the network from a variety of platforms... The DocuColor functions as an Internet or intranet server, and has a home page that lets remote users view server functions and manipulate jobs...

Page 59

NOTE: The Installer WebTool enables you to download printer file installers directly from the server... For more information on the Installer WebTool, see Getting Started...

Page 60

Check power & cable There is a problem with the copier power or cable connection... First check to make sure that the copier is turned on... There may also be a problem with the cable connection between the DocuColor and the copier... Make sure that the cable has not come loose... The DocuColor will resume printing when the cable is securely connected to both the DocuColor and the copier...

Page 61

Ld ___ paper The copier is not loaded with the paper size specified in the application... The DocuColor will print when the copier is loaded with the required paper... This message will also appear if you are printing transparency interleave and do not have the correct paper size loaded...

Page 62

Replace waste bottle The copiers waste toner container is full of used toner... Replace the container with a new one according to the instructions in your copier manual... The DocuColor will resume printing when you have replaced the waste toner container...

In Downloader, check the Status window, or look at the Status field in the Spooler main window... If the DocuColor is processing your job, youll see this from the status message... If your print job doesnt appear in the status message, another users job may be printing before yours, or the DocuColor may already have finished printing your job... If the Printed queue on your DocuColor is enabled, jobs that have finished printing will appear in that list in the Spooler main window... If your job is waiting to print, it will appear in the list for the Print queue...

Page 67

If another Macintosh computer is nearby, check to see if the DocuColor appears in the Chooser on that Macintosh... If the DocuColor is visible from one Macintosh computer, but not from another, there may be a problem with the way the second Macintosh computer is connected to the network... Check all the cabling and other connections, and verify that the network is properly terminated... If there is a 10BaseT transceiver on the network, make sure that its green link integrity light is on... For more information about the network, refer to the documentation provided with the network hardware...

Page 68

When you print to the Print queue, the job is stored on the DocuColor until it can be processed and printed; when you print to the direct connection, some file processing is performed on your computer before it is sent to the DocuColor and it cannot begin processing on the DocuColor until it is done processing the previous job, so you must wait longer to use your computer...

Page 69

If you are printing a PostScript file, set the Convert Paper Sizes setting in Printer Setup on the Control Panel to convert the job to the paper size you do have... You can do this to convert between US and metric paper sizes... See the Administrator Guide for information...

Page 70

If you are printing from an application such as Adobe Separator or PageMaker, MacroMedia FreeHand, or QuarkXPress, you should make sure that the DocuColor printer description file is installed correctly... For information about installing these files, see Getting Started...

Page 71

When you update your DocuColor to new system software, you should delete the utilities on your Macintosh or Windows computer and install the latest utilities to insure full compatibility...

Page 72

The Showpage (after EPS file) option adds a showpage PostScript language command at the end of the print job... Certain applications omit this necessary PostScript language command when they generate EPS files... Youll need to select the Append Showpage option when printing EPS files generated by these applications...

Page 73

You can also set and override some options from the Print dialog box and other dialog boxes... The options are the same regardless of the name of the dialog box... To set options in the Print and Printer Specific Options (Macintosh), or Options/Features (Windows) dialog boxes, open the file in an application and follow the instructions in Chapter 2, Printing with Macintosh Computers and Chapter 3, Printing with Windows Computers...

Page 74

Specify the color mode for the current print job... Select CMYK for a full-color document... Select Grayscale for a grayscale or black and white document...

Page 75

Document Set The Document Set option enables you to reverse order print and collate multiple page/ multiple copy jobs sent from applications that do not support reverse order printing and collation...

Page 76

NOTE: If you print from an application that does support reverse order printing and/or collation, make sure to disable these options from within the application before using the Document Set option... Enabling reverse order printing and/or collation from within an application and setting the Document Set option to On may produce unexpected results...

Page 77

The sorter unit has one top output tray and 20 output bins; therefore, the maximum number of copies that can be sorted is 20... Sending 21 or more copies to the sorter results in the excess copies of the job being discarded... In order to print more than 20 copies you can resend the job, 20 copies at a time, from the Print dialog box, from the Spooler utility, or from the WebSpooler WebTool...
