                       ===== Application Notes =====


1. Printing

 1.1. Print Job Settings

 The CARPS Printer Driver provides you to set various printer 
 settings. Refer to the following procedures when performing printer 
 settings.

 To perform printer settings from the Printers window:
 You can change the printer settings from the Printers window.
 The settings you changed will remain until you change them again.

 1)  On the desktop, click "Start" point to "Settings" then click 
     "Printers" (Windows XP: click "Start" then click "Printers 
     and Faxes" )(Windows Vista: click "Start" and click 
     "Control Panel" then click "Printers" ).

 2)  Right-click the printer icon and select 
     "Properties" from the pop-up menu.

 3)  Change the printer settings as you like.

 4)  When you are finished, click "OK."

 To perform printer settings from the software application:
 The settings using the following procedure are valid until the 
 software application is closed.

 1)  In the software application, start the print job. (For example, 
     select "Print" from the "File" menu.)

 2)  In the Print dialog box, select the name of the printer to use, 
     then click "Properties."

 3)  Change the printer settings as you like.

 4)  When you are finished, click "OK."


 Displaying the On-line Help

 Refer to the Help file for details on how to perform the settings.
 When you click the "?" mark in the upper right hand corner of a 
 dialog box, and then click an item, an explanation of that item 
 appears. When you click "Help," information about the printer 
 driver appears.


 1.2.Cautions, Limitations, and Restrictions

 Note the following limitations when using the driver or printing 
 a document.

 o For some computers, when a print job is cancelled, the next print 
   job may not be performed correctly because a reset printer signal 
   is not sent from the computer. After canceling a print job, 
   always reset the printer before starting the next print job.

 o When you print with a watermark, a part of the document where the 
   image and the watermark are overlapped may not be printed 
   clearly. If you set "Print Style" to "Transparent," you should 
   set a dark color for the "Color."

 o If the printing takes long time to process, printing may not be 
   performed normally. In that case, set the ERROR TIME OUT settings 
   in the Menu to OFF, and try the print job again.

 o When you print a document whose resolution is 1200 dpi or more, 
   it may not be printed correctly. In this case, print the document 
   at lower resolutions.

 o When printing from Microsoft Visio Professional 2003, the printed 
   image will not be reduced to fit the specified paper size even if 
   you set "Page Size" to "A3" and "Output Size" to "A4" in "File" 
   -> "Print" -> "Properties."

 To work around this limitation, perform the following:

 1)  On the desktop, click "Start" point to "Settings" then click 
     "Printers" (Windows XP: click "Start" then click 
     "Printers and Faxes" )(Windows Vista: click "Start" and click 
     "Control Panel" then click "Printers" ).

 2)  Right-click the printer icon and select "Properties" from the 
     pop-up menu.

 3)  Set "Page Size" to "A3" and "Output Size" to "A4." Click "OK."

 4)  Print the document from Microsoft Visio Professional 2003.

 o When an "@" character is used in the name of the printer, the 
   printer will become unrecognizable by the operating system because 
   of an invalid printer name thus disabling printing, operation and 
   setup.  

 o When you log on to an Administrator account that is different from 
   the one used to install the software, you will not be able to 
   access the driver properties with Administrator privileges. To 
   access the driver properties, select [Run as Administrator].

 o Specifying the Custom Paper Size 
   An administrator privilege is necessary when editing the "Custom 
   Paper Size" in the "Page Setup" tab of the printer drivers printing 
   preferences dialog box.

 o In certain applications, thickness of a line can be set to a value 
   smaller than 1pt but the actual thickness in the printout may be 
   equivalent to that of an 1pt line.


                               ===== Customer Service =====

If you have questions about how to use the software, or if any 
points are not clear, refer to the contact list in the operating 
instructions and contact the service center nearest you.
