    functions, which are supported by the standard MP Drivers:
    - [Background] of [Stamp/Background...] on the [Page Setup] tab
    - [Disable ICM required from the application software] and
      [Unit of Print Data Processing] in the [Print Option]

  - Install Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 or a later
    version if you use the following functions in the Preview
    window:
    - Manual color adjustment
    - Grayscale printing
    If you do not install this service pack, the preview data may
    not display correctly.

  - The preview may not function correctly when the following
    functions are selected at the same time:
    - Page layout printing and manual color adjustment
    - Page layout printing and grayscale printing
    If the preview does not function correctly, disable the
    [Preview before printing] option on the [Quick Setup] tab or
    the [Main] tab, and then execute print.

  - The [Stamp] function on the [Page Setup] tab may not function
    properly if [Render print jobs on client computers] on the
