< Using the Printer Driver >

When printing something with this printer driver, restrictions on
what you can do sometimes apply. Keep the following points in mind
when printing:

  - With certain applications, the paper feed method that was set
    with the printer driver may not operate properly.
    In that case, set the paper feed method with the Page Setup or
    other appropriate function of the application software.

  - With certain applications, the [Copies] setting is non-effective
    when setting is attempted from the printer driver. 
    In that case, specify the setting in the applications' [Print]
    dialog box.

  - If the selected [Language] in the [About] dialog box does not
    match the operating system interface language, the driver screen
    may not be displayed properly.

  - Do not change the [Advanced] tab items of the printer properties.
    If you change any of the items, you will not be able use the
    following functions correctly.
    Also, if [Output to File] is selected in the [Print] dialog box of
    the application software and with applications that prohibit EMF
    spooling, such as Adobe PhotoShop LE and MS Photo Editor,
    the following functions will not operate.
    - [Preview before printing] on the [Main] tab
    - [Reduce spool data size] in the [Print Options] dialog box
    - [Page Layout Printing], [Poster Printing], [Booklet Printing],
      [Duplex Printing] (manually), [Print from Last Page], and
      [Collate] on the [Page Setup] tab

  - Since the resolution in the preview display differs from the
    printing resolution, text and lines in the preview display may
    appear different from the actual print result.

  - In some applications, the printing is divided into multiple
    jobs. To prohibit printing, delete all divided jobs.

  - For details on functions related to Windows XP Professional x64 
    Edition, see the corresponding user's manual.

< Using the IrDA interface and the Bluetooth option >

Keep the following points in mind when using these interfaces:

  - When printing via the IrDA interface, functions that rely on

    "Paper Out", will not be shown in the IJ Status Monitor.

      the Status Monitor or cancel that print job from the print job
