1.0 System Requirements
================================================
1. Allow at least 10MB of free hard disk space on the 
   drive which contains your system's TEMP directory.
2. For Windows 95, the minimum amount of RAM memory 
   required is 8 MB. (16 MB is recommended).
3. For Windows 3.1, the minimum amount of RAM memory 
   required is 4 MB. (8 MB is recommended.)
4. Increasing the amount of RAM memory will result in 
   faster printing and reduce compatibility problems 
   with some applications.  As an alternative, you can 
   also increase the amount of virtual memory to reduce 
   the possibility of "low memory" conditions. (Please 
   note that this method does not improve printing 
   performance.)


2.0 For Windows 95 Users
================================================
2.1 Specific Information for Windows 95 Users

1. If you upgrade the BJ Series printer driver 
   from a previous version, choose Replace the 
   existing BJ Series printer driver, even though 
   Windows 95 recommends that you keep the 
   existing printer driver.  Or, remove the older 
   version of the BJ Series driver before 
   performing new installation.  Otherwise the 
   new BJ Series printer driver may not be updated 
   correctly.

2. If you reinstall the BJ Series printer driver, 
   be sure to remove the BJ Series driver which

1. If you upgrade the BJ Series printer driver, 
   be sure to remove the older version of the 
   BJ Series driver from the Windows Control

       "Uninstalling the BJ Series Printer Driver".

4. When running Windows 3.1 under OS/2, this BJ Series 
   printer driver cannot be used.

5. In Windows 3.1, the Cartridge Detection mechanism is 
   unable to distinguish between a regular colour ink

   to install the correct ink cartridge to avoid 
   printing problems.

--------------------------------------------------
3.2 Installing the BJ Series Printer Driver

4.0 Cautions, Limitations and Restrictions
================================================
4.1 During Installation Procedure

1. If you receive a message which indicates that the 
   BJ Series printer driver is already in use during 
   the installation procedure, close all open 
   applications and try installing the printer driver 
   again.

2. If you cancel the installation procedure before all 
   necessary files of this BJ Series printer driver are 
   copied, the printer driver cannot be installed 
   completely, even though it appears in the list of 
   Installed Printers.  
   You must therefore reinstall the BJ Series printer 
   driver from the first step described in the 
   instruction manual such as "Windows Print Guide" 
   and complete the installation procedure.

--------------------------------------------------
4.2 During Printing Procedure

1. If your printer is capable of printing in colour, 
   do not attempt to print in Colour mode when a black 
   ink cartridge is installed in your printer.  The 
   results will be unpredictable.

2. After printing an image with Photo Colour ink, please 
   allow the ink to dry for 15-30 minutes.

3. For some printer models, the Cartridge Detection 
   feature may not function if you have used the BJ 
   Setup Utility to set the Printer Control Mode to the 
   Automatic mode.  
   To use the Cartridge Detection feature, set the 
   Printer Control Mode to either LQ or BJ mode.

4. Some thin lines which are not solid black may not 
   print using the BJ Series printer driver's default 
   settings.  
   To work around this, set the Photo setting to the 
   Print Model in the Graphics tab.  This will use an 
   alternative dot-placement method that produces better 
   results.

5. A blank dialogue box may appear when you are using 
   Manual Feed mode.  When this dialogue box appears, 
   insert a sheet of paper and click OK.

6. If you select Automatic from Print Model in Graphics 
   tab sheet or Auto from Halftoning in Custom Setting 
   dialogue and start printing, some part of the printed 
   image which should be printed with Diffusion 
   halftoning may be printed with Fine halftoning.
   To correct this problem, set Diffusion to the 
   Halftoning in Custom Setting dialogue.

7. Some Bar Code TrueType fonts may be printed with 
   some extraneous lines.

8. When sharing a document file among several computer 
   systems, make sure that all the fonts used by the 
   document are installed on all computer systems.  
   Otherwise, some text fonts will not be printed 
   correctly.

9. This BJ Series printer driver supports a special 
   transparent mode when printing overlapping bitmapped 
   graphics.  However, some applications (such as 
   PhotoShop V3.0, Claris Works and possibly other) 
   do not support the transparent mode correctly, and 
   this can cause printing errors.  Other applications 
   incorrectly set the background colour for bitmapped 
   graphics, and this can also cause printing errors.
   To work around these problems, the printer driver 
   will automatically add the following lines to your 
   system's WIN.INI file when it is installed.
	[CanonDriver]
	ForceOpaque=1
	PhotoShopBugFix=1
   To disable these work-arounds, you can edit the 
   WIN.INI file and change the "1" to "0" and then 
   restart Windows.  For most applications, you should 
   leave these items set to "1".

10. A known problem in Corel Mosaic Version 5.0 may 
    cause incomplete printed output.  Please contact 
    Corel Corporation for an update.

11. When printing from Adobe Photoshop, select the RGB 
    mode rather than the CMYK mode to avoid printing 
    some incorrect colours.

12. Banner Printing Tip
    (Banner-capable printer models only)

     - MS Publisher 97
       To avoid some overlapping printed results between
       page boundaries, select File/Print/Tile Printing 
       Options and set the value of Overlap tiles to 0.

     - Print Shop Ensemble III
       To avoid any gaps between pages, use Standard 
       quality instead of Draft.

     - For best results, you should only print one copy 
       of a banner at a time.  If you perform multiple 
       copies, the printing results may be unpredictable.
