When specified in a step-by-step control panel procedure example, the function key is identified by the icon in the left margin and the associated key name in the text of the numbered step, for example:

Page 13

N Note: Your printer is not supported by PSPrinter v8... 0 and v8... 1, or LaserWriter v8... 0... The Xerox driver v2... 01 gives access to the new version 8 features, and provides backward compatibility... If the new Xerox driver is built from LaserWriter driver v7... x or earlier, all selections and options are similar to those provided by Xerox driver v1... 0...

Page 14

The Xerox Driver Builder v2... 01 or later (Xerox driver) contains the programs that enable the PSPrinter driver or the LaserWriter driver to customize the paper handling and print options for your printer... It also contains the configuration used by the enhanced driver...

Page 15

The installer removes earlier versions of the PSPrinter driver (for example, v8... 0) and all PostScript Printer Description (PPD) files... When the installer detects a newer version of the same file, for example TeachText, click the [Newer] button to keep the more recent file... For a description of other PSPrinter driver functions, refer to the PSPrinter User Guide, provided in the disk package...

Page 16

N Note: For System 7 users, the Xerox printer driver is built and stored in the Extension folder... For System 6 users, the driver is stored in the System folder... If you need to keep more than one version of the printer driver in the Chooser, you can rename the Xerox icon or icons in the Extension folder to indicate the different versions...

Page 17

With Auto Setup and proper connection to your printer, the PPD Xerox printer v2013... 112 or later file should be selected... After the driver is installed, you can copy additional PPD files obtained from other sources to the Printer Descriptions folder... If the expected PPD cannot be found, the driver displays a warning message... You should choose the Generic PPD or manually select a PPD file...

Page 18

The driver displays a dialog box where you can select the PPD Xerox printer v2013... 112 or later version in the Printer Descriptions folder, as shown in the following illustrations... The following shows a setup dialog box with fewer choices:

Page 19

The Installable Options dialog box displays, listing the installable features and options in their default setups...

Page 20

Print image The print image shows the current size, arrangement, and appearance of the printed results... The outer solid rectangle represents the edge of the physical paper... The inner dotted rectangle shows the boundaries of the imageable areas... Click within the page image box to display the numerical dimensions of the page... Refer to figure 1-1...

Page 21

Reduce or enlarge Scale factors range from 25 percent to 400 percent... Default scaling is 100 percent...

Page 22

Paper The available paper sizes are the same as defined in the Xerox PPD... These include the 16 standard Xerox sizes in the smaller imageable area set, and the 16 standard Xerox sizes in the larger imageable area set... When the Engine Margin in the PPD configuration is set to two millimetres (the default), the smaller size set is used... When the Engine Margin is set to zero millimetres (mm), the larger size set is used... The larger sizes produce the Edge to Edge imageable areas, while the smaller sizes leave nonimageable areas of two mm along the edges...

Page 23

Standard options are used when the Custom checkbox is not selected... Click the [Options] button to display additional standard features... These features include the standard Print dialog box functions, and the options provided by the selected PPD, as shown in figure 1-6... Refer to the online help facility when selecting the standard features...

Page 24

The custom print options provide more flexible input/output manipulation, selection by size, custom size configuration, saving and reuse of setup files, and so on... Click the Custom box to the right of Paper Source in the Print dialog box to disable the standard Paper Source selections and enable the custom print options, as shown in figure 1-7... Then click the [Setup] button to display the Custom Print Options dialog box, as shown in figure 1-8...

Page 25

When switching from standard to custom print options, make sure that the paper source default is Auto Select... The custom checkbox is not selectable when one of Trays 1 through 5 is selected...

Page 27

Once the Xerox Driver Builder (Xerox driver) is built, you can open a document in an application and select the Xerox page setup and print options... You can also select these features from the Finder by choosing Print Window, Print Desktop, or Print... Refer to the Macintosh Users Guide for detailed instructions on printing...

Page 28

All of the standard MRP paper sizes shown in the Paper Size pop- up menu are identified by asterisks to the left of the paper size descriptions... Each MRP paper size provides a larger printable area than the corresponding LaserWriter sizes... Sixteen MRP sizes (including envelopes) are available from the menu... Table 2-1 shows the exact dimensions for each size...

Page 29

N Note: In both cases, efficient envelope printing requires the correct printer setup... To guarantee the correct envelope size and tray selection, and avoid any unnecessary jamming that may be caused by using the wrong media in tray 5, use the control panel to enable the Paper Loading Pause option at the Printer Setup menu... This displays an operator message in case of media mismatch, and you are prompted to feed tray 5 with the right size... When the Paper Loading Pause is disabled (the default), enter tray 5 input as the correct envelope size at the control panel...

Page 30

You can access the Print dialog from within any application software... The selections you make in this dialog define how the job will print... General features are provided in the top level dialog box, as shown in figure 2-3... When you use the MRP print options, always select Custom as the paper source...

Page 31

Click on [Setup] in the Print dialog box to display the Options dialog box, as shown in figure 2-5... You can do the following from the Options dialog box:

Page 32

Clicking any of the input selection boxes displays a pop-up menu, from which you can select the input source by tray or by size... The selectable trays are tray 1 through tray 5... The selectable sizes include the 16 standard sizes and the four custom sizes, as shown in table 2-1... The four custom sizes, defined in the configuration menu, are listed at the end of the input source pop-up menu... These are equivalent to the other paper and envelope sizes entered at the control panel for trays 1, 2, 3, and 5...

Page 33

Table 2-2 lists the page size restrictions for the high-capacity stacker... When the high-capacity stacker is selected, the job can output to this location only when all sizes selected in the same job belong to size group A... If any paper size in the job belongs to size group B and no group C size is selected, the entire job is redirected to the top tray... If the job contains any size that falls in the group C category, the entire job is redirected to the face-up tray...

Page 35

N Note: Paper from tray 5 cannot be fed through the duplex path and can only be output to the face-up tray...

Page 36

Save SetupDisplays the standard file saving dialog, showing only the previously-saved setups, and allows you to save the current setup... If you save the setup to the same name as an existing setup, you are prompted to replace the existing setup...

Page 37

N Note: To efficiently use tray 5 for envelopes, A6, and postcard sizes, use the printer control panel to enable the Paper Loading Pause option at the Printer Setup menu... When Paper Loading Pause is disabled (the default), and tray 5 is not set up to the required size, you are not prompted if a size mismatch occurs... The printer may draw any paper available in tray 5 when tray 5 is selected, or search for the closest size (usually the next larger available size) in some other tray when the requested size is not found... If Paper Loading Pause cannot be enabled for system administration, make sure that the requested size is selected at the control panel as tray 5 input...

Page 38

Click on the [Configure] button to display the Configuration dialog box, as shown in figure 2-6... This dialog box provides options that are not configured with the Setup dialog box... You can define four custom page and envelope sizes... If you make your selection and click on the [OK] button and the selected page size is larger or smaller than that allowed, the closest allowable size is substituted... The following ranges are available:

Your system usually automatically transfers fonts to the printer each time you print... If you want to speed up the printing process, you can download fonts manually to one of the following:

Page 42

Once you have installed the files from the Xerox Support Software for Macintosh diskettes to your system, additional selections are available on the dialog boxes in the Font Downloader program... For example, to display a list of storage devices for your printer, click on Device... Devices that are not installed are not listed in the pop-up menu...

Page 43

When your network administrator changes your network printer password, the Font Downloader cannot download fonts or PostScript files to that printer... If this happens, you need to use the Use Different Password command to tell the Font Downloader the new password...

Page 44

There are three methods of deleting (erasing) downloaded fonts... Follow the procedure that is appropriate for your printer configuration...

Page 45

You should not delete fonts from the programmable font module... This removes access to the font file but does not reclaim the memory space from the font module... When clearing fonts in the font module, download the PostScript CLEAR PFM file to reinitialize the font module and create a new file system...

Page 46

Not enough space for the font cache affects your printer performance... Your document may take an unusually long time to print... To improve your printer performance, use the Clear Font Cache command from the Special menu... Clearing the font cache deletes all instances of previously cached fonts... This results in the need to cache the font again, and invokes a printer restart...

Page 47

To use the Font Downloader on a Macintosh system, you need to set the AppleTalk Print Language to PostScript mode (AppleTalk) from the printer control panel... The Font Downloader does not function correctly in any other setting, because this utility sends PostScript queries to the printer and feedback is returned only in the AppleTalk PostScript mode...

Page 49

The Printer Configuration Report provides information on the hardware status and the default printer configuration settings for the AppleTalk interface...

Page 50

If the AppleTalk configuration settings listed on the Printer Default Settings System Configuration section of the report do not meet your requirements, refer to the Configuring the AppleTalk network interface at the printer control panel section of this document for information on how to change the default settings...

Page 52

Specifies that the command interpreter is automatically selected from incoming data as PostScript or PCL 5... This allows the printer to invoke the appropriate interpreter to process the current print job... You do not need to reconfigure the communication interface by using the control panel or remote software commands between print jobs that require different command interpreters...

Page 53

When AppleTalk is set up in STD/TBCP protocol PostScript, the printer detects standard protocol PostScript and processes the files accordingly... Data sent in binary can be image data, PostScript language objects and numbers, and strings... This setting is used primarily in a mixed network environment with gateways from DOS networks (for example, Novell) to AppleTalk... This setting is also used where PC AppleTalk cards are used... AppleTalk network architecture alone has no need for TBCP, because it carries control functions out of band (as separate packet types) and arbitrary 8-bit binary data can be sent directly without any additional encoding...

Page 54

This scheme allows you to assign a high priority to one enabled port: Serial, Parallel*, AppleTalk, Network, or MRP interface... All other ports have the same lower priority... If new jobs are received on the priority port before the jobs on the other ports are processed, the jobs from the high priority port are printed first...

Page 55

Only one setting is changed in each example to demonstrate the procedures for changing a specific default setting... When you use the Main Menu to make printer configuration changes, you can make one or more changes to the default settings before you exit the menu...

Page 56

This setting takes effect immediately, and remains in effect until you change it, even if you power off and on...

Page 57

This setting takes effect immediately, and remains in effect until you change it, even if you power off and on...

Page 59

By contrast, your printer feeds envelopes long edge at the side of the multi-sheet bypass tray (tray 5)... This lets you feed the envelope with the sealing edge extended to avoid crinkling and heat treatment of the adhesive, which can sometimes seal the envelope...

Page 60

With this application package, you can use the sample file envelope located in the Stationary folder to obtain optimum print results for Commercial 10, DL, C5, and Monarch envelopes... You can manually adjust any necessary shifting of text (left or right) on the screen...

Page 61

Once the envelope form is acceptable on screen, select the Print option from File and set up the printer to print the page from tray 5 (or by envelope size), and set Tray 5 Page Size to the same envelope size... If Paper Loading Pause is enabled, the display prompts you to load the specified envelope size... All envelopes are fed long edge...

Page 63

** In the U... S... , the Printer Language Reference for PCL 5 and PostScript is not shipped with the printer... To order this document, fill out and mail the Printer Language Reference Order Card found at the back of the System Administrator Guide... The manual is shipped at no charge to you...
