conserve paper. This function can also be used in combination with two-sided printing for maximum conservation of paper.
For example, when [2-Up] (2 pages per sheet) and [4-Up] (4 pages per sheet) are selected, the following print results will
be obtained, depending on the order selected.

To use the staple function, a finisher or saddle stitch finisher is required.
To use the punch function, a punch module must be installed on the finisher or saddle stitch finisher.
The number of holes that can be punched and the spacing between the holes varies depending on the installed punch module.
The maximum number of sheets that can be stapled when a saddle stitch finisher is installed is 50 (25 when a finisher is
installed) for A4, letter, and B5 sizes. The maximum number of sheets is 25 for other sizes. To staple horizontally fed paper, a
saddle stitch finisher is required. In this case, the maximum number of sheets that can be stapled is 50 for A4R and letter R
sizes, or 25 for all other sizes. For pamphlet stapling, the maximum number of sheets is 10. The maximum number of sheets that
can be stapled at once includes any covers and/or inserts that are inserted.
The staple function cannot be used in combination with the offset function, which offsets the position of each output job from the
previous job.
When the finisher is disabled in the machine's administrator settings, the staple function and punch function cannot be used.
When the staple function or the punch function is disabled in the machine's administrator settings, stapling or punching is not
possible.

☞ Macintosh: BASIC PRINTING PROCEDURE (page 2-2)
NOTE
In Windows, view printer driver Help for details on printer driver settings for each printing function.
CREATING A PAMPHLET (Pamphlet/Pamphlet Staple)
The pamphlet function prints on the front and back of
each sheet of paper so that the sheets can be folded and
bound to create a pamphlet. This is convenient when
you wish to compile printed output into a pamphlet.
When a saddle stitch finisher is installed and saddle
stitch printing and the staple function are selected, the
output is automatically folded and stapled at the centre.
This allows you to conveniently use the output as a
handout or pamphlet without the need for any further
work.

HOLD JOB LIST
If "Hold Only", "Hold After Print", or "Sample Print" is selected in the printer driver retention settings when printing a
print job, the print job will be held in the machine's hold job list. A held print job can be printed or deleted from the
machine's operation panel. The machine can hold up to 100 print jobs.
NOTES
● This function can only be used when the network expansion kit (with hard drive) is not installed.
● For the procedure for selecting retention settings in the printer driver, see "SAVING AND USING PRINT FILES
(Retention/Document Filing)" (page 4-20).
If the number of jobs exceeds 100, the job is processed as follows.
● If Hold After Print is executed:
Printing will be executed but the job will not be held. (A notice page will be printed. See page 10-5.)
● If Hold Only is executed:
Printing will not be executed and the job will not be held. (A notice page will be printed. See page 10-5.)
● If Sample Print is executed:
Printing of one set will be executed but the job will not be held. (A notice page will be printed. See page 10-5.)

DESCRIPTION OF SETTINGS
The administrator settings related to the printer function are explained here.
Printer settings
■ Default settings
Print hold setting*1
These settings are used to adjust the settings of
various printer functions.
The following items can be configured in the "Default
settings".
● Prohibit notice page printing
● Print density level
● Prohibit test page printing
● A4/letter size auto change
● Print hold setting*1
This setting is used to prohibit or allow the print hold job
function, which is used by selecting "Hold Only", "Hold
After Print", or "Sample Print" when printing a print job.
When a print hold job cannot be retrieved because the
user has forgotten the password, the administrator can
delete the job in place of the user.
When "DISABLING OF PRINT HOLD FUNCTION" is
selected, the print hold job function is disabled and the
"DELETE ALL HOLD DATA" key does not appear in the
base screen of print mode.
However, when print hold jobs are stored in the
machine, this program cannot be enabled until all of the
print hold jobs have been deleted. The program is
normally disabled (the print hold function is enabled).
When "DELETE THE HOLD DATA BY ENTERING
ADMINISTRATOR PASSWORD INSTEAD OF
PASSCODE" is selected, an administrator can use the
administrator password to delete a print hold job in
place of the user.
Note, however, that the key operator cannot print the
jobs.
*1 Can only be used when the network expansion kit
(with hard drive) is not installed.
Prohibit notice page printing
This setting is used to disable notice page printing.
Turn on this setting when you do not want the machine
to print the notice page explained in "NOTICE PAGE
PRINTING" on page 10-5.
Normally this setting is set to not print a notice page.
Print density level
This setting is used to adjust the lightness or darkness
of prints.
Five levels are provided for density adjustment. These
are represented by numbers displayed on the touch
panel. Among the displayed numbers, a smaller value
indicates lighter density and a larger value indicates a
darker density.
Prohibit test page printing
This setting is used to disable test page printing.
When the setting is turned on, the PRINTER TEST
PAGE in the system settings cannot be printed. (See
page 2-14 of the operation manual (for general
information and copier operation))
A4/letter size auto change
If this setting is set, and printing onto 8-1/2" x 11" size paper
is selected but not available, the printer will automatically
substitute A4 size paper in place of 8-1/2" x 11" paper if A4
paper is available.
* 8-1/2" x 11" paper cannot be automatically selected in
place of A4.
NOTE
When 8-1/2" x 11" size is specified for a document
attached to an E-mail that has been transmitted from
a foreign country and 8-1/2" x 11" size paper is not
installed in the printer, printing cannot be done
without operator intervention. If this setting is set,
printing will be executed without intervention if a
paper tray is loaded with A4 paper.

DESCRIPTION OF SETTINGS
■ Interface settings
USB port emulation switching
These settings are used to control data transmitted to
the USB port or network port of this printer.
The following items can be configured in the "Interface
settings"
● Hexadecimal dump mode
● I/O timeout
● Enable USB port
● USB port emulation switching
● Enable network port
● Network port emulation switching
● Port switching method

the emulated printer language.
Setting items
Auto
PostScript
PCL
Hexadecimal dump mode
This setting is used to output the print data from a
computer in the hexadecimal dump format with
corresponding characters (ASCII). This setting is used
to check proper transmission of print data from the
computer to the printer.
Description
The printer language will switch
automatically in accordance with the
data from the computer.
PostScript emulation is used to print
the data from the computer. (An
optional PS3 expansion kit is
needed.)
PCL emulation is used to print the
data from the computer.
NOTE
It is recommended to set "AUTO" (default setting)
unless an error due to this setting occurs frequently.
Enable network port
Output example of hexadecimal dump mode
This setting is used to enable or disable printing from
the network port.
Default setting: Enable
Network port emulation switching
I/O timeout
This setting is used to set the length of time to wait for
an I/O to complete a job on the USB port or the network
port. If the data stream to the port does not transmit
data for a length of time exceeding the timeout, the job
will cancel and the next job will start processing.
The I/O timeout setting is used to set the amount of time
after which an I/O timeout will occur when waiting for
print data.
Default setting: 20 seconds
NOTE
The allowable range of the time is 1 to 999 seconds.
Enable USB port
This setting is used to enable or disable printing from
the USB port.
Default setting: Enable
This setting is used to specify a printer language to
emulate when the printer is connected to a computer
through the network port.
The setting items are the same as those of "USB port
emulation switching".
NOTE
It is recommended to set "AUTO" (default setting)
unless an error due to this setting occurs frequently.
Port switching method
The machine can use the two ports shown below for
printing. This setting is used to select when switching
between ports will take place. "SWITCH AT END OF
JOB" or "SWITCH AFTER I/O TIMEOUT" can be
selected. When "SWITCH AT END OF JOB" is
selected, the port will be automatically selected after
each print job is completed. When "SWITCH AFTER I/
O TIMEOUT" is selected, the port will be automatically
selected if the time set in the I/O Timeout setting
elapses.

NOTICE PAGE PRINTING
A notice page will be printed when the current print job cannot be run due to a system limitation and an explanation
of the limitation is too lengthy to be shown in the message display. A notice page will describe the limitation and other
possible ways instead of possibilities to run the job.
Printing of the notice page is initially disabled in the administrator settings (see "PROHIBIT NOTICE PAGE
PRINTING" on page 8-5).
A notice page will be printed in the following cases.
●When the print data of a single job is so large that it cannot be held in memory. (When there are other jobs
occupying memory, notice pages may tend to be printed more frequently even for jobs with small amounts of
data.)
●When different paper sizes have been selected for printing within a print job and one or more of the sizes cannot
be delivered to the selected exit tray or to the stapler compiler. In these cases printed paper will be delivered
partly to the specified destination (tray or compiler) and partly to another exit tray.
●When a function is selected that has been disabled using the administrator settings, such as disabling of twosided printing, disabling of the staple function, or disabling of a specified exit tray.
●An invalid account number is entered when the auditing mode has been set.
