Accessing Help Information ========================== From the Properties dialog box, you can click the Help button to display the information about the Canon PCL5c, PCL5e or PCL6 printer driver. Cautions, Limitations and Restrictions ====================================== 1. If you have problems printing some graphics objects when printing with the PCL5e printer driver, you should select the alternate Graphics Mode (Vector or Raster) to the one you are using currently in the Graphics sheet. The Graphics sheet is displayed by clicking the Details button in the Quality sheet. 2. If you have problems printing some graphics objects when printing with the PCL6 printer driver, you should use the PCL5e printer driver and select Raster for Graphics Mode in the Graphics sheet. The Graphics sheet is displayed by clicking the Details button in the Quality sheet. 3. Certain TrueType fonts may not be printed correctly. If this occurs, you should disable the Use Printer Fonts check box in the Detailed Settings for Objective dialog box to ensure that all fonts are downloaded with the document, rather than using only those fonts that reside in the printer. The Detailed Settings for Objective dialog box is displayed by clicking the Details button in the Quality sheet. If the problem persists, you should use the PCL5e printer driver and select Raster for Graphics Mode in the Graphics sheet, and then enable the Print Text as Graphics check box in the Misc. sheet. 4. Rotated text will not be printed correctly with some applications when TrueType Mode is set to Download as TrueType or Download as Bit Image in the Detailed Settings for Objective dialog box. The Detailed Settings for Objective dialog box is displayed by clicking the Details button in the Quality sheet. To avoid this problem, you should use the PCL5e printer driver and select Raster for Graphics Mode in the Graphics sheet, and then enable the Print Text as Graphics check box in the Misc. sheet. 5. When Overlay Printing, use the overlay form whose size is the same as the paper size of the document you are going to print. 6. In some applications, the printed output may not be correct when using the scaling feature. In this case, use the PCL5e printer driver and select Raster for Graphics Mode in the Graphics sheet. The Graphics sheet is displayed by clicking the Details button in the Quality sheet. 7. A document which contains different paper sizes across the pages may not be cross-sorted (output copies turned at a 90 degrees for each copy) correctly. Because the printer does not support cross-sorting of paper sizes other than B5, A4 and Letter, the pages of unsupported paper size documents will not be cross-sorted. 8. When creating a custom paper size in the Print Server Properties dialog box of Windows XP/Server 2003/Vista/Server 2008 x64 Edition, specify the margins as 0.63cm/0.25in or more. 9. Print jobs containing fill patterns, especially in Corel Draw, have been observed to output slowly when printing with the PCL6 driver or PCL5e driver in Vector mode due to the large size of the file. To avoid this situation, it is recommended that you use the PCL5e driver and select Raster for Graphics Mode in the Graphics sheet. The Graphics sheet is displayed by clicking the Details button in the Quality sheet. 10.When creating an overlay form file in one machine operating Windows XP/Server 2003/Vista/Server 2008 x64 Edition, you cannot specify another machine operating Windows XP/Server 2003/Vista/Server 2008 x64 Edition in the network as the place to save the new form file. 11.When you store a landscape document in the Mail Box of the printer, the staple position displayed on the printer control panel differs from the setting of the printer driver. Also, if you specify the staple position of a landscape document stored in the Mail Box from the printer control panel, the actual staple position of the output document may not correspond with the orientation specified. 12.It is necessary to use TCP/IP as a network protocol in order to set up the printer configuration automatically when using a Remote Desktop environment, or when Windows is shared by multiple users. 13.When inserting inserted sheets into the document, if you accidentally specify a drawer that contains tab paper as the paper source for the inserted sheets, the paper source automatically returns to the plain paper setting. 14.If you select Rotate Print Data 180 Degrees in the Finishing Details dialog box when any Finishing option is selected, the document may output in an unexpected style. 15.When you use Adobe Illustrator 9.0 or later and do not select the Bitmap Printing option, it may take a long time to finish printing, or thin lines or characters may be blurred. If you experience such problem, select the Bitmap Printing option. 16.When you share the printer on the print server and specify a shared printer name in 13 or more characters, neither automatic printer configuration nor the Job Accounting feature are available on the client PCs. 17.For LASER CLASS 700 when printing several copies of a document consisting of mixed paper sizes with the collate option, do either one of the followings: -Use the collate option provided by the application. -Select Enabled for Spooling at Host in the Device Settings sheet before printing. 18.If it takes long time to print a document from CorelDraw, the following settings may shorten the printing time. 1) From the Tools menu, select Options. 2) In the Options dialog box, select Global->Printing->Driver Compatibility from the tree view in the left side of the dialog box. 3) In the Driver Compatibility sheet, select Canon PCL printer driver from the Printer drop-down list, and then select the following check boxes. -Use software clipping for fills, -Output bitmaps in 64k chunks, and -Send beziers and paths to driver 4) Click the OK button to close the dialog box. 19.For imageRUNNER 105, 105PLUS, 7200, 8070, 8500, 85PLUS, and 9070, when using booklet printing with saddle stitch, the printed cover page loaded from Document Insertion Unit may be attached upside down. If this occurs, put the cover page in the Document Insertion Unit in the opposite direction. 20.When printing a document with a banner page attached from the server PC under the NetWare environment, two copies of the banner page may be output. 21.For imageRUNNER 2000/1600, 2010/1610, 330-400, 600-550-60 and LBP-2000, refer to the following points when making the Mail Box name file. - Any name can be used for a file - Use [BoxName] as the section name - Use the numbers 0 to 255 as the key names - The key and box name together cannot exceed 24 characters - Include [Key=1] as one of the keys Note: It is unnecessary to include keys for a box number whose name is not specified. Also, if the keys without box name are included in the file, they will be ignored. Sample File ----------------------------- [BoxName] Key=1 0= 1=Joe Smith 2=Bob Jones 3=Sally Hill 50= 48= 58= 55=Robert Brown 71=Peter Wilson 99=Lucie Jones ----------------------------- 22.If you select Transparency or Label for Paper Type in the Paper Source sheet, a message indicating that you cannot print the document unless you change the Paper Type may appear. If this message appears, you may be able to print a document by deselecting the Offset check box in the Finishing sheet. 23.For LBP5960, when using a custom paper size for printing, the print data may not be output correctly if the length of the custom paper size is greater than 1168.6 mm. 24.There may be cases where the Custom Paper Type information registered in the printer is not acquired correctly when installing the printer driver. If so, reacquire the correct information by clicking on the Get Device Status button in the Device Settings sheet, or the Get Paper Details button in the Paper Type Settings dialog box, displayed by clicking the Settings button in the Paper Source sheet. 25.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. 26.If you print a document that has an odd number of pages as a two-sided document from an application, the application may automatically insert a blank page to bring the number of pages up to an even number. When this happens, the blank page inserted by the application is counted up in the same way as a printed page. 27.To register the custom paper size you want to use, access the Document Properties dialog box from the Printers folder with Administrator privileges, and then specify the paper size in the Custom Paper Size Settings dialog box which is displayed by clicking the Custom Paper Size button in the Page Setup sheet. 28.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]. 29.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. 30.When a document is output at a resolution of 1200 dpi set from an application, jaggies in images may be more noticeable than when the document is printed at 600 dpi. 31.If you are using a USB connection with the printer to print, and cancel a print job that is currently printing from your computer using the print spooler, the printer may not return to a ready state. In this state, you can print via USB, but not via a network. In order to be able to print from a network, cancel the print job from the control panel of the printer prior to printing. 32.For Windows Server 2008 x64 installed with Server Core option, the following limitations exist on using the printer driver. - You cannot install the driver with the installer. Use the installation options of Windows. - Some print options are not available under local environment or Windows Remote Desktop environment. 34.If the driver version of the client computer is older than that of the print server, the driver settings of the server may not be applied to the client. <END OF README.TXT>Download Driver Pack
