< Points To Note with Applications >

  - Microsoft Word/Microsoft Corporation
    If you specify a value greater than one for the [Pages per
    sheet] setting in Word's [Print] dialog box, do not use [Page 
    Layout Printing] setting on the driver's [Page Setup] tab. 
    If you specify values greater than one for both settings, 
    printing will not be done correctly. When you want to print more
    than one page per sheet, use one setting or the other to specify
    it. 

  - Microsoft Word/Microsoft Corporation
    When using the [Scale to paper size] setting in the [Print]
    dialog box, do not use [Scaled Printing] setting on the printer 
    driver's [Page Setup] tab. If used, Word's [Scale to paper size]
    setting will be overridden by the printer driver's [Printer
    Paper Size] setting on the [Page Setup] tab when scaling to fit.

  - Microsoft Word/Microsoft Corporation
    When Word's [Allow A4/Letter paper resizing] feature is enabled,
    if [Orientation] in Word's [Page Setup] dialog box is set to
    [Portrait] and the driver's [Orientation] setting is specified
    as [Landscape], printing is not done correctly. To avoid this,
    disable [Allow A4/Letter paper resizing] before printing. To
    access this feature, open the [Options] dialog box from Word's
    [Tools] menu and click the [Print] tab.

  - Microsoft Word/Microsoft Corporation
    When changing [Paper size] and [Orientation], do it using Word's
    settings, not the printer driver's.

  - Microsoft Word/Microsoft Corporation
    When selecting [Scaled Printing], [Fit-to-Page Printing] or 
    [Page Layout Printing] in the [Printing Type] on the [Page Setup] 
    tab, do this:

    1. Open Word's [Print] dialog box.
    2. Open the printer driver setup window and on the [Page Setup]
       tab select [Printing Type] and click [OK].
    3. Without starting printing, close the [Print] dialog box.
    4. Open Word's [Print] dialog box again.
    5. Open the printer driver setup window and click [OK] again.
    6. Start printing.

  - Microsoft Excel 2002/Microsoft Corporation
    If the "Allow A4 and letter paper sizes to be changed" setting
    is enabled in Excel 2002 and the "Paper Size" that was set on
    the "Page Setup" tab of the Printer Properties screen differs
    from the paper size that was set in Excel (one is set to A4 and
    the other to Letter), the data is printed according to the
    Printer Properties paper size. 
    If a problem occurs, match the Printer Properties paper size to
    the paper size that was set in Excel. Alternatively, select
    [Options] from the [Tools] menu of Excel, clear the "Allow A4 and
    letter paper sizes to be changed" setting on the "International"
    tab, and then print the data.

  - Lotus Organizer 2.1/97/Lotus Corporation
    Lotus Organizer will print in color even though monochrome
    printing has been selected. To stop this, check [Grayscale
    Printing] in the printer driver.

  - Photoshop/Adobe Systems Inc.
    Printing may not be done if you don't have system administrator
    privileges. Log on with system administrator privileges to print.

  - Lotus Notes/Lotus Corporation
    The system can lock up with certain print jobs. Make sure that
    in Notes' [Page Layout] settings you specify top and bottom
    margins of 0.9 in. or 1.1 in.

  - Microsoft Outlook/Microsoft Corporation
    If you cancel printing from the application, the next print job
    will crash. On the Printer Properties' [Advanced] tab, select
    spooling for the print document.

  - CorelDraw 8/Corel Corporation
    There are instances where problems arise if you try to open the
    printer driver setup window from CorelDraw 8.0. For instance, a
    crash may occur or characters may be corrupted. To get round
    this, open the printer driver setup window from the [Printers]
    folder, specify the settings you want, then print from the
    application. 
    This problem does not occur with CorelDraw 9.0.

  - Illustrator/Adobe Systems Inc.
    If Bitmap Printing takes effect, printing may take time or some
    data may not be printed. Print after clearing the [Bitmap
    Printing] check box in the [Print] dialog box.

< 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 [Copies] setting is non-effective
    when setting is attempted from the printer driver. In such
    cases, specify the setting in the applications' [Print] dialog
    box.

  - With certain applications, if you attempt multiple-copy printing
    of a document with [Collate] checked on the printer driver's
    [Page Setup] tab or in the application's [Print] dialog box,
    printing will not be done correctly. To work around this,
    uncheck [Collate] before printing.

  - With certain applications, printing may not be done properly if
    [Print Type] or [Halftoning] is set to [Auto]. In this case,
    start the [Print Advisor] on the [Main] tab and be sure to
    select [Print a top-quality photo] or [Print tables and charts].
    Alternatively, set [Print Quality] on the [Main] tab to [Custom]
    and select a setting other than [Auto] for [Halftoning]. Next
    set [Color Adjustment] to [Manual] and select a setting other
    than [Auto] for [Print Type].

  - When printing graduated or graphics-intensive print data,
    sometimes print data may not be printed. This occurs when there
    is not enough free space on your hard disk to temporarily store
    the data. To remedy this, make sure there is 40-50 MB of free
    space on the drive where Windows XP or Windows 2000 is
    installed. Alternatively, set the spool folder on the disk
    with sufficient space. To change the location of the spool
    folder, follow the steps below.
    1. From the [Start] menu, select the following items:
       For Windows XP:  [Control Panel]-[Printers and Other
       Hardware]-[Printers and Faxes]
       For Windows 2000:  [Settings]-[Printers]
    2. Select [Server Properties] from the [File] menu.
    3. Click [Advanced] tab, change the drive name of [Spool Folder],
       and then click [OK].

  - If, during printing, you cancel the print job from the Printer's
    folder, there will be a delay before printing actually stops.

  - In some cases, printing will fail if there isn't enough virtual
    memory available. You can remedy this by increasing the size of
    the paging file. To do this, open the [System Properties] dialog
    box by double-clicking [System] in the Control Panel or
    right-clicking [My Computer] and choosing [Properties]. Then
    click the [Advanced] tab, click [Performance Options...], click
    [Change...], specify the new paging file size, click [Set], and
    click [OK].

  - Do not change the [Print Processor] setting on the [Advanced]
    tab in the Printer Properties dialog box. If you change the
    setting, the following functions cannot be used:
    - [Page Layout Printing] and [Poster Printing] on the [Page
      Setup] tab
    - All functions of the [Stamp/Background] tab
    - [Preview before printing] on the [Main] tab

  - The following functions cannot be used if you uncheck [Enable 
    advanced printing features] on the [Advanced] tab in the Printer
    Properties dialog box:
    - [Page Layout Printing], [Poster Printing], [Reverse Order],
      and [Collate] on the [Page Setup] tab
    - All functions of the [Stamp/Background] tab
    - [Preview before printing] on the [Main] tab
    - [Reduce spool data size] in the [Print Options] dialog box

  - The following functions cannot be used when you are using an 
    application that does not allow EMF spooling (for example, 
    Adobe PhotoShop LE and MS Photo Editor):
    - [Page Layout Printing], [Poster Printing], [Reverse Order],
      and [Collate] on the [Page Setup] tab
    - All functions of the [Stamp/Background] tab
    - [Preview before printing] on the [Main] tab

  - The following functions cannot be used if you check [Print to
    file] in your application's [Print] dialog box:
    - [Page Layout Printing], [Poster Printing], [Reverse Order],
      and [Collate] on the [Page Setup] tab
    - All functions of the [Stamp/Background] tab
    - [Preview before printing] on the [Main] tab

  - With some applications, when printing with [Page Layout
     Printing] on the [Page Setup] tab set to [2-up Printing] or
     greater, certain page images may get cropped. If this happens,
     use the application to adjust the layout of the affected pages.

  - When carrying out poster printing or stamp/background printing, 
    the displayed number of pages of the document in the print queue
    is greater than that of the actual document.

  - The colors in the screen display of the application software may
    be different from the colors in the preview display.

  - The colors in the preview display may be different from the
    colors in the print result.

  - 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. In this case the preview display can only display the job
    being printed, and the display may differ from the display
    intended by the user.

  - The preview display cannot be used in the following cases:
    - During printing when the printer icon is right-clicked and
      [Use Printer Offline] is selected
    - During printing outside the specified times when [Available 
      from] is set on the [Advanced] tab in the Printer Properties 
      dialog box

  - For details on functions related to Windows XP or Windows 2000,
    see the corresponding user's manual.

====================================================================
About Network Printing
====================================================================

< Preface >

Windows allow two or more users to share a printer via a network.
To share a printer among multiple users, necessary settings must be 
made on the computers connected to the network.

The computer to which a printer is connected actually is called a 
print server (hereafter called a server). The computer that use the 
printer connected to the server via a network is called a client 
machine (hereafter called a client).

< Version of the Printer Driver to be Used >

- Get the printer driver that matches the OS used on the server
  and clients.

- The combination of the printer driver (made by Microsoft) that
  comes with Windows and a Canon's printer driver does not allow
  network printing. Use Canon's printer drivers on both servers
  and clients.

- Printer drivers used on the server and clients must be of the
  same version. When Windows XP is used in combination with
  Windows 2000, install this printer driver (Version 1.80)
  in both the server and client.

     Note:
     - The printer without a parallel interface does not have
       the printer driver for Windows NT4.0.
     - This printer does not have the printer driver for
       Windows Me, Windows 98, and Windows 95.

< Installation and Setup Methods >

  1. On the server, install a printer driver suitable for the
     operating system used. The installation method is more or less
     the same as for an ordinary local printer.

  2. Specify the printer connected to the print server as a shared
     printer.
     For how to do this, see the Windows help.

     Point and print installation (method of saving a printer
     driver for clients on the print server using the [Additional
     Drivers] function on Windows XP or Windows 2000) can be done
     here. (When doing this, skip step 3.)

  3. On the client, install a printer driver suitable for the
     operating system used. The installation method is more or less
     the same as for an ordinary local printer.

     Note: 
     - Any port can be selected during installation. After choosing
       any port, complete installation.
     - When installing the printer driver using the installer, a
       message requiring you to turn on the printer appears. Ignore
       it.

  4. Open the network computer on the client and right-click the icon
     of the shared printer you want to use on the server and select
     the following menu item:

     - [Connect...] for Windows XP or Windows 2000

  Thus, a shared printer icon is created on the client.
  Since the icon of the printer whose driver has been installed in
  step 3 is no longer needed, it can be deleted.

< Restrictions Related to Network >

- When using a network printer, if the client's BJ Status Monitor is
  activated, a command is sent to the printer to obtain its status. 
  If you have checked [Notify when remote documents are printed]
  on the [Advanced] tab of the print server's [Server Properties]
  dialog box, a print completion notification message is displayed
  on the client in response to each command. To stop these
  messages appearing, uncheck [Notify when remote documents are
  printed] on the [Advanced] tab of the print server's [Server
  Properties] dialog box, then restart the print server to make the
  setting effective.

- If the printer is being shared through a network, the confirmation 
  message for ink tank replacement will not be displayed in the 
  client when printing is started. After replacing the ink tank with 
  a new ink tank, be sure  to reset the ink counter. If the ink 
  counter is not reset, the low ink warning may not be displayed
  properly.

- When point and print installation is done, the bi-directional
  support setting on the client is made ineffective.
  If the client user, having opened [Properties] of the printer
  driver, clicks [OK] without selecting [Enable bi-directional
  support], the bi-directional communication function of the server
  is also disabled.
  To avoid this problem, you can install the printer driver on the
  client in advance following the procedure described in
  "< Installation and Setup Methods >"
  You can also avoid this problem by restricting the access rights
  of the client user when making a shared printer security setting.

- When printing via the Internet (IPP environment), check the
  version of the printer driver installed in the server and then
  install the same printer driver in the client as a local printer.
  Note that the client cannot start the status monitor because the
  printer status cannot be obtained via the Internet.  

- When the same printer driver is installed in both the server and
  client as a local printer, the network crawl function can
  automatically create a network printer icon on the client side.
