3. Precautions During Installation ---------------------------------------------

* For more details about installation and uninstallation procedures, please refer to the printer manual.

* You must log into Windows as an Administrator before the installation.

* Before executing installation or uninstallation, be sure to shut down all software applications.
  You cannot install or uninstall with imagePROGRAF Free Layout or Color imageRUNNER Enlargement Copy running.

* After uninstallation, the install directory may remain.
  If there are files in the installation destination folder that are not managed by Printer Driver Extra Kit, these files and folders are not deleted.

4. Cautions, Limitations and Restrictions --------------------------------------

Note the following limitations when using this software.

<imagePROGRAF Free Layout>

* In some cases a print job with a large amount of data cannot be printed.
  In such a case, experiment with the following methods to perform the print job.
  - Add expanded memory to your PC, or enlarge the virtual memory.
  - Install Service Pack 4 if you are using Windows 2000.
  - If you are using Adobe Illustrator, switch the on/off setting of the Bitmap print item in the print dialog box.
  - Lower the resolution setting then perform the print again.

* A print job may occasionally fail during continuous printing. If this occurs delete the registered Custom Setting.

* Sometimes the print preview display may different from the actual print position. If this occurs, make a slight adjustment in the position of the object.

* The hues of the print preview and the image displayed in the software application (Adobe Photoshop, etc.) may be slightly different.

* The appearance of text and fine lines in the print preview may be different from what you see in the print result.

* If the print job is cancelled, the printer may remain in standby mode. In this case, click the cancel button and then try to print again after the software application shuts down.

* Free Layout printing cannot be done during RAW spool printing with the software application (VectorWorks, Adobe Photoshop LE, Microsoft Photo Editor, etc.).

* The object may not print at the correct position if the size of the object is enlarged. In this case perform the print after positioning the object automatically.

* Sometimes a print job can be lost if imagePROGRAF Free Layout is shut down during the print job.

* When Borderless Printing is selected, the view including the borders displayed.

* Depending on the objects, drawing errors may be generated.
  If this happens, change the Fast Graphic Process setting in the Preferences dialogue box.

<Color imageRUNNER Enlargement Copy>

* In some cases a print job with a large amount of data cannot be printed.
  In such a case, experiment with the following methods to perform the print job.
  - When using the Sharpen function, specifying a lesser number of sheets for printing out at one time with Enlargement Copy may correct the problem.

* Sharpness is not applied for PDF files.

* Occasionally data other than data scanned with imageRUNNER (including encrypted PDF data) cannot be printed properly.

* Occasionally the enlargement rate is not correct for images scanned from non-standard paper sizes (smaller than A4) when using larger paper from the Media Source.
  Media other than standard sizes are handled differently by Media Source feed.

* If you perform continuous scanning of different paper sizes, the scanned size and paper size may not match.
  Scan media of the same size if you are going to do continuous scanning.

* Depending on the network settings on your PC, imageRUNNER might not be able to access your hot folder.
  Activate the Windows file sharing setting.
