4. Q & A


    Q: I can't seem to print correctly using the "Reduce/Enlarge" or "Print 

       Layout" options. 


    A: Try setting print properties from the application's Print dialog box 

       before printing; 

       or setting print properties from control panel, then restart your 


         For example, to print from Microsoft Word 2000 do the following:

        1) From the File menu, select Print.

        2) Click Properties.

        3) Select the Paper menu.

        4) Set the desired paper size.

        5) Select the Layout menu.

        6) For Reduce/Enlarge setting, select Fit to Page, then select the 

            desired paper size. After clicking OK, the Properties dialog box

            closes and the Print dialog box displays again.

        7) Make any other selections in the Print dialog box, and click OK.

    Q: The output on my paper never appears to the settings I use in my 

       application software.

    A: Settings that are changed in the printer driver override the settings 

       made in your application software. For example, when the Print Quality

       is set to Fine-720 dpi with Plain paper selected as the Media Type, 

       your documents are printed at Fine-720 dpi even though the resolution

       in your application software is set to another resolution.

    Q: After I changed print settings, the print output is not what I expected

       Paragraph positioning is off, and text or graphics are missing.  


    A: This problem can occur when settings for Print Quality, Reduce/Enlarge, 

       or Print Layout have changed since the document was created.

       Try adjusting margins and font sizes. When you change the printing size 

       by the Reduce/Enlarge printing item, sometimes the edges of your 

       document are not printed. 

         Make sure to place enough spaces to the edges of your document when 

         you use theReduce/Enlarge printing. 

5. Known printer driver problems


     There are no known bugs within the printer driver itself.
