About Plug-ins
A plug-in is a small computer program that interacts with a larger program to provide
additional functionality. An example is Security Watermark, which is available for
Kyocera printer drivers. Installing the plug-in adds Security Watermark functionality
to the printer driver, adds a Security Watermark icon to the Advanced tab, and adds
the dialog boxes that are used to set up a Security Watermark.
For detailed information on Security Watermark, see page 9-7. For instructions on
installing the plug-in using the installation program, see step 3 on page 1-13.

Collating in sorter mode produces the specified number of copies as
complete sets of documents in each tray.
•
The document is printed following the page order and received in
each tray. The number of document copies must not exceed the
number of trays. If a tray becomes full, the printing system pauses
and shows a message to remove the paper from the tray. After the
paper is removed, printing resumes for the remaining number of
copies.
•
Non-collating mode produces the specified number of copies but
divides the document for output in each tray, with page 1 in tray 1,
page 2 in tray 2, and so on. For example, printing 20 copies of a four
page document using grouping produces 20 copies of page 1 in tray
1, 20 copies of page 2 in tray 2, and so on.
•
The number of document copies must not exceed the sheet
capacity of any tray. When a tray reaches capacity, the printing
system pauses and shows a message to remove the paper from the
tray. In addition, the maximum document page length must not
exceed the number of sorter trays. When a tray reaches capacity,
the printing system pauses and shows a message to remove the
paper from the tray.
•
The mailbox mode sends copies to specified user trays, which is
useful when the printing system is shared among different users.
For example, specifying tray 5 sends the printed document to tray 5.

Description
Download as outlines
Best suited for large documents or print jobs using
multiple fonts and font sizes. Print speeds will be
faster because of the optimization features in this
setting. The repetition of similar font data sent to the
printing system will be reduced, thereby increasing
the print speed.
Print speed will not be increased when using Asian
fonts such as Japanese, Chinese, and Korean,
because of the large amount of font information
used for these particular fonts.
Allow native download
Improves text quality and increases print speed by
converting TrueType fonts to Adobe Type 42 font
format. This feature is available when KPDL is
selected in the PDL Settings dialog. For further
details on changing the page description language,
refer to PDL Settings on page 2-6.
Download as bitmaps
Bitmap downloading provides more detail, however
it creates large file sizes.
Select under these circumstances:
• For print jobs with very small fonts (point size
1-4), user-defined fonts, or Asian fonts.
• For operating systems with fewer TrueType

font characteristics to the system font, character spacing in the document will appear
incorrect.
Disable Device Fonts
In some cases, the printing system substitutes fonts even if you send the TrueType
fonts as outline fonts or bitmap images. Select Disable device fonts to prevent
substitution of device fonts for TrueType fonts.
When printing with AutoDesk or Adobe applications and Microsoft Office versions
older than Office 2000, select Disable device fonts to overcome device font
limitations with these applications. Device fonts are normally visible in application
font lists as printer icons next to the font name, unless there are equivalent system
fonts, in which case the “TT” TrueType icon remains.

Security Watermark
Security Watermark is an optional feature that is available with some printing
systems. Security Watermark adds watermark text and a background pattern to a
print job. The text blends into the background pattern making it nearly invisible when
printed. If the printed document is photocopied, the security watermark will be visible.
A security watermark can be used to help protect against unauthorized reproduction
of documents, or simply to differentiate original documents from photocopies.
If Security Watermark is available for your printing system, the installation program
will offer the opportunity to install it during installation of the printer driver. If you have
already installed the printer driver, you can install Security Watermark using the
installation CD-ROM that came with your printing system.
The Security Watermark feature is accessed from the Advanced tab. To enable the
button that opens the Security Watermark dialog box, PCL XL must be selected as
the PDL (Page Description Language). To view or change PDL settings, in the
Windows Printers and Faxes folder right-click the icon for your printing system, and
select Properties. Click the Device Settings tab, then click PDL.
To enable the Security Watermark feature, select a watermark from the list. You can
choose one of four standard security watermarks, or create your own text. To disable
the security watermark feature, at the top of the list select [None]. If [None] is
selected, no security watermark is applied to the document, and all options in the
dialog box are unavailable, except Add.
The preview area provides an idea of how the security watermark and background
will appear on a photocopied page. It is useful for viewing any adjustments made to
the appearance of the text. Only a section of the preview page is displayed; it does
not show how the entire page will look. The preview shows all security watermark
settings except Pattern shading, Text contrast, Overprint, and Print as footer

(Line 1, Line 2, Line 3) are all optional, at least one of the lines must contain text.3
To leave a text line blank, select [None] from that line’s drop-down list.
With User Defined selected from the Line text drop-down list, type the text you want
in the text box next to the drop-down list. The maximum length of each line of text is
39 characters. As you type, your text will appear in the preview pane at the left.
As an alternative to creating your own security watermark text, you can choose one
of the following selections from the list. These options direct the printing system to
retrieve information from the computer or printer driver to print the security
watermark:
•
Computer name
•
Mac address
•
Time
•
Date and time
•
User name
•
IP address
•
Job name
•
Date
•
Job ID
For date, time, and job selections, only a label for the selection will appear in the
preview panel. When the job is printed, the actual date, time or job information will
print as the security watermark text.

Additional Options
Fonts
Select a font for the new watermark from the Font list. The Security Watermark
feature uses only TrueType fonts. Select a font Size and Style. To adjust the Angle
of the text on the page, select from the list. An angle is measured in degrees, ranging
from 0 to 180. The default is 45 degrees.
Print as Footer Also
Select this option to print the first available line of text (in the Line 1, Line 2, or Line
3 text boxes) as a footer on the document page. Select Left, Center, or Right to
position the text in the footer.
Since the actual security watermark text may not be visible on the document original,
the footer can be useful for reproducing the text visibly in an inconspicuous place at
the bottom of the page,
Outline Text
This option produces an effect on the photocopied page that is the reverse of the
standard result. If the check box for Outline text is cleared (the standard printing
option), the text is the darkest, most visible part of the photocopy. If selected, the
background is the most visible part, creating an outline around the text which makes
the text appear white. The default setting for Outline text is On.
Watermark Color
Select a Watermark color from the drop-down list for printing the security watermark
text and background. The default is Black.
•
For monochrome printing systems, the list is disabled, with Black as the only
value.
For color models, the available selections are Black, Cyan and Magenta.
•
Background Pattern
Select a Background Pattern from the drop-down list for printing the security
watermark background. The default is Tile.
Available background pattern choices are:
•
•
•
•
Wave
Leaf
Diamond
Lattice
•
•
•
•
Tile
Plaid
Square
Crystal
Overprint
Select Overprint to print the security watermark over the document content, leaving
the content visible. The effect is the security watermark seems blended in with the
document content. This is useful for applications such as Microsoft Power Point and
Internet Explorer, where the document content fills the entire page. If the Overprint
check box is cleared, the security watermark is covered with the document content.

In the Device Settings tab’s PDL Settings dialog box, if GDI compatible mode is
selected, then Overprint is selected automatically.
Adjust Calibration
Use this option to set and make adjustments to the Pattern shading and Text
contrast for each individual security watermark. You can print sample calibrations to
help you determine the appearance of the security watermark.
The quality and effectiveness of the printed and photocopied security watermark is
dependent on the particular printing system and the settings used. Before printing a
security watermark it is necessary to adjust the calibration, and then print calibration
pages.
Calibration should be adjusted (and calibration pages printed) under these
circumstances:

print a Private Print job. An access code can also be used with the Job storage feature.
Auto Configure Device settings feature that queries a printing system through the network and automatically retrieves settings for optional devices, memory, and RAM disk. Driver
settings will be updated with information received from the physical printing system. Installed
devices will be displayed in the 3-D image.
B
Barcode reader Optional device that attaches to your printing system and scans barcodes on a print job or code list. You can use a barcode reader with Permanent, Temporary,
or Virtual Mail Box jobs, to print them or delete them from the hard disk.
Booklet Layout mode that prints a multi-page document in a booklet format by using a duplex unit. Two pages are printed on each side of a sheet to create a document that can be
read like a book. For some models, finishing devices are available to fold and staple booklets.
C
Cassette Input paper tray.
Custom box Job option that stores print jobs in the printing system’s memory for later
printing from the operation panel. Custom box jobs are saved to boxes that are assigned to
users, and can be restricted by password. Your printing system must have an installed hard
disk to use this feature. 100 Custom boxes are set up on the printing system’s hard disk at
installation. The maximum number of Custom boxes is 1000.
D
dpi Dots per inch. See also Resolution.
Duplex unit Optional accessory that supports two-sided document printing.
E
EcoPrint Printing mode that reduces the amount of toner placed on the printed page. It
extends the life of the toner cartridge. Because toner saturation is reduced, the entire image,
text and graphics, will appear lighter in the printed job. EcoPrint does not increase print
speed. Ecoprint is also called Draft mode in some models.
e-MPS Job storage that lets you store print jobs in the printing system’s memory so that
you can access and print the job again later from the printing system’s operation panel. For
most e-MPS options, an optional Hard disk must be installed.
F
Fast printing Printing mode that decreases spool size and increases print speed.
Finisher Optional device for stapling, folding, punching, or sorting print jobs.
G
iv
GDI compatible mode A page description language option that accurately reproduces
what is viewed on the screen using the Microsoft Graphical Device Interface (GDI) component to render the document. It generates data in a raster printing format, creating a larger
printable file.
KX Driver
Operation panel
Gutter Blank space on the left side or top of a printed page that can be increased by scaling
down text and graphics. This supports stapling and hole punching. When used with Duplex
printing, the enlarged blank space lines up evenly on both sides of the sheet. The larger blank
space is created by shifting the printable area to the right or down as much as one inch (25.4
mm).
H
Halftone screen Imaging process that breaks down an image into dots. An experienced
user can adjust Halftone screen settings to create shades of gray in graphic images. Larger
dots spaced close together create darker shades, and smaller dots spaced farther apart create lighter shades. Shading can be varied by adjusting the number of rows of dots, the angle
at which rows of dots are placed, and the shape of the dots.
J
Job accounting An accounting system that records and controls the number of pages
printed by each account ID. Account IDs can be assigned at the printing system and stored
in the driver. Once account IDs are assigned, use Job accounting to print in the Copy Management mode.
Job storage Job feature that saves print jobs for printing at a later time. Jobs are stored
permanently on the printing system's optional Hard disk: they are not deleted when the printing system is powered off. Job Storage offers a secure print option using a four-digit Access
code. Secure print jobs cannot be printed until requested, using the Access code, at the printing system's operation panel.
K
KM-NET Software that provides network-wide management of printers and copiers.
Kyocera image refinement (KIR) Imaging feature that smoothes the edges of text and
vector graphics.

with Virtual Mailbox.
Manual duplex Method for printing on both sides of a sheet when the printing system
does not support a duplex unit. After the first half of the print job has been printed, the job can
be flipped over and fed from the cassette for the second side printing.
Monochrome Imaging mode that uses black toner only. When used with color models, all
color settings are constrained.
MP tray Source tray used for labels, transparencies, envelopes, and custom printing media.
O
Offset jobs Finishing mode that physically shifts each print job in the output tray. This feature requires an optional finishing device such as a Booklet stitcher or Multi finisher.

selected PDL. Available page description languages are PCL XL, PCL 5e (monochrome
models only), PCL 5c (color models only), and KPDL.
Poster Layout feature for printing a document in a larger size than the maximum supported
by the printer so the cumulative sheets can be assembled as a poster. Use this feature to
print a document in a large, eye-catching poster format, up to 25 times larger than the original
document size.
PRESCRIBE Kyocera's scripting language that you can use to embed commands into
specified locations in a print job. See also Prologue/Epilogue.
Private print Job feature that sends secure print jobs to the printing system with a fourdigit Access code and stores them in RAM disk memory or an optional Hard disk. The job is

individually.
Prologue/Epilogue Advanced feature that allows you to insert a macro into specific locations in the print job. An advanced user may choose to use this feature to embed a PRESCRIBE command that will call a macro to overlay PRESCRIBE form data or a graphic
object, such as a logo or a signature, at a specific point in the print job.
Proof and hold Job feature that prints one copy of a multiple copy job and then stores the
remaining copies in RAM disk memory or an optional Hard disk. Once the first copy has been
reviewed, the remaining copies can be printed or deleted at the printing system’s operation
panel. Proof and hold jobs are stored temporarily and are deleted when the printing system
is reset or powered off.
Q
Quick copy Job feature that prints all copies of a job, then saves the job on the printing
R
RAM disk A feature that lets you set up an area within the printing system memory as a
virtual hard disk for faster printing. RAM disk is not an attached device, but an allocation of
existing printing system memory. RAM disk is temporary. All data sent to RAM disk memory
will be lost when the printing system is reset or the power is turned off.
system’s optional Hard disk temporarily for later access. The stored Quick copy jobs can be
accessed from the printing system's operation panel.
Resolution The number of dots printed in one inch. Higher resolution improves the quality
of detailed printed images.
Reverse page order Print output option that sends a print job to a destination from the
last page to the first. This option is unavailable when Printer default is selected.
