A printer driver is an application that sends documents to a printer and manages
communication between a printer and your computer. Install the printer driver from
the supplied Product Library CD-ROM. Once installed, a variety of printer settings
can be configured.
Note: In Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 2000, you must be logged in
with administrator rights to install the KX Driver. If you connect the USB cable before
CD installation, it is strongly recommended that you cancel the Found New
Hardware Wizard and install the software through the CD menu. Browsing the CD
and installing each driver separately is not recommended.

that compliment the ways in which you use your printer. Available components may
include Auto Configure, Common Profiles, and TrueType fonts.
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.

Prompt for login user name
When a user prints a document, the driver will prompt for a user name and
password. Lets you use a Login User Name that is not on the list, and does not
add the name to the list. When sending a print job, type a Login User Name and
password when prompted, then click OK to print.
Prompt for login user name and validate
Whenever a user sends a job to print, the driver prompts for user name and
password. For the job to print, the user name and password entered must be on
the Login User Name List (see Add Login User Names on page 2-10).
You can use the Login User Name entered in the Login User Name List of the
driver. When sending a print job, type a Login User Name and password when
prompted, then click OK to print. This option ensures that the job will print, only
when verifying that the selected Login User Name is saved in the driver.
Verify login user name for each login user
When this option is selected, the driver will ask for a Login User Name and
password the first time the a job is sent to the printer. The Login User Name
must be one that is not yet registered on the Login User Name List.
The name entered is added to the list, and thereafter the printer driver does not
prompt for a user name and password.

Job Accounting
With Job accounting, you can assign account IDs to print jobs, or work with IDs
already created at the printing system. Job accounting features help you manage
and control the number of copies in a printing system. After IDs are created, from the
printing system operation panel you can view the number of copies attached to a
specific ID or limit the number of copies for individual IDs. IDs for newer models must
be 8 digits or less, and for older models they must be 4 or 7 digits.
Copy management must be set to ON at the printing system to use this feature.
Depending on the printing system model, a maximum of 100 to 1000 account IDs can
be assigned at the printing system and stored in the printer driver. For complete
information about the job accounting features of the printing system, please see the
Operation Guide for your particular model.
Note: User login and job accounting cannot be used at the same time in the driver.
Job accounting includes the following options:
Use specific account ID: This option can be used to specify a single account ID to
manage the print jobs of a specific user. When the user prints, their jobs will be sent
with the account ID. You can use Password protect administrator settings to
protect access to the Administrator Settings dialog box, so that the user cannot
see or change this setting.

Printer Properties
Note: Some versions say Password protect instead of Password protect

Prompt for account ID: This option can be used to prompt the user for an account
ID when printing. When sending a print job, type an account ID when prompted, then
click OK to print. The account ID must be one that has been registered at the printing
system, or the job will not print.
Prompt for account ID and validate: This option can be used to prompt the user
to specify an account ID that is saved in the driver. When sending a print job, type an
account ID when prompted, then click OK to print. The account ID is validated
against the account ID list, so you must type an ID from the list, or you cannot print.
Display account ID list: This option can be used to display the list of IDs entered in
the account ID list of the driver when sending a print job. This gives the user a
selection of account IDs to choose from.
Account ID List: This option can be use to add, edit, or delete account IDs from the
account ID list of the driver. You can also give the IDs text descriptions to help
manage and track them. Once an account ID list is created, the list can be exported
as a group by saving it as a text file (.CSV). To import an account ID list, browse for
an existing list and save it in your printer driver.

Compatibility Settings
This feature supports compatibility for media source values unique to the printer
driver, such as those for cassettes or feeders, so your newly installed KX driver
maintains identical media source support with the driver it replaces, whether for this
driver or one from another manufacturer. If media source macros exist for the older
driver, then the alignment of media source values will maintain support without the
need to change the macros.
Use the Driver Info utility, available on the Product CD, to compare the source values
for all installed drivers.
If the values for a given media source differ between the old and new printer drivers,
reassign the value in the new driver to match the value in the previous driver.
Compatibility settings can be adjusted by selecting Compatibility in the Device
Settings tab.

By attaching a sorter to your printing system, you can specify how printed documents
are stacked in the output trays after printing.
The number of output trays and their receiving capacity (the number of sheets) varies
depending on the sorter model. Refer to your sorter's Operation Guide.
Frequently, the application settings are given priority, causing a change in the sorter
output method depending on the application. Verify these settings before printing

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.

When a tray reaches capacity, the printing system pauses and
shows a message to remove the paper from the tray.

Booklet stitcher.
Note: For some features in the Finishing tab, the caution symbol appears when the
feature is unavailable. Place the pointer over the symbol for a message that tells how

•
Finishing Edge aligns the matching sides of two different page sizes in a
document.
•
Staple binds multiple document pages together with one or more staples.
•
Punch places round hole punches in the margin.
•
Separation physically separates document copies or multiple copies of a print
job in the finishing tray.
Finishing Edge
Finishing edge aligns the matching sides of two different page sizes in a document.
For example, the long edge of an A4 page is aligned with the short edge of an A3
page; or the short edge of a letter size page is aligned with the short edge of a legal
size page. Finishing edge can be used with or without the staple or punch features.
You can choose the position of staples and hole punches in a document composed
of mixed page sizes.
In contrast, if you are printing a mixed page size document without using Finishing
edge, staple or hole punch positions depend on the paper size settings (portrait or
landscape) in the paper cassettes.
Finishing edge should be selected before any other features in the Finishing tab. If
set last, Finishing edge might change any settings you previously made under Staple
or Punch.
In the Finishing tab, if Booklet (fold) is selected for the Staple feature, Finishing tab
options are unavailable. Finishing edge makes some other features unavailable,
such as Separation and Rotated. Finishing edge cannot be used with the Poster
feature.
To create a gutter in the document, click Gutter. A gutter increases the blank space
on the left side or top of the printed page by scaling down text and graphics. For more
information see Gutters on page 5-3. For applications that do not depend on the
driver for page size (such as Microsoft Word), use the application’s Page Setup
dialog box to specify the sizes of the mixed pages in your document.
Note: For printer models that don’t support Finishing Edge, Gutters is located on
the Layout tab.

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 2-5.
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 system
fonts (Microsoft Windows 3.1, Windows 98 and
Millennium Edition). Non-TrueType fonts can only
be downloaded as bitmaps.
Substitute with device
fonts
System fonts and device fonts are automatically
matched based on typeface name. To match a specific
device font with a system font, select Substitute with
device fonts, then click Fonts to open the Font
Substitution dialog box.
Select under these circumstances:
• To increase print speed and efficiency.
• To change a font found throughout a large
document. This selection replaces the old font with
the desired font.
KX Driver
Imaging
Note: GDI compatible mode does not support Substitute with device fonts. For
further details on GDI compatible mode see page 2-7.
Font Substitution
With Substitute with device fonts selected as the font setting, click Fonts to open
the Font Substitution dialog box.
The System fonts list shows the fonts installed on your computer. The printing
system fonts are listed in the Available device fonts list. Select the system font, and
then the available device font to be substituted. If the device font does not have
similar 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.
This option also improves portability of printable data. (If cleared, device fonts may
not match when sent to a different printing system.)
The Substitute with device fonts option is disabled if Disable device fonts is
selected.

Pattern Scaling
Adjust the pattern scaling to improve visual compatibility between screen and print

If printed patterns and fills do not match the appearance of that on the screen, use
this feature to select a different print density.
Pattern Scaling
Option
Description
Auto (default setting)
In most cases, this option prints patterns and fills to
match the on-screen appearance.
Coarse
Prints patterns and fills with the fewest number of lines,
patterns, or dots. Coarse is the same as Auto when
PCL XL or PCL 5e/c is selected in the PDL Settings
dialog box.
Medium
Prints patterns and fills with a greater number of lines,
patterns or dots than the Coarse setting. Medium is the
same as Auto when KPDL is selected in the PDL

Optimization
Option
Description
Fast printing
Delivers images in binary format. Fast printing
decreases spool size and increases print speed. Use it
for most everyday printing needs.
Document portability
Creates a PostScript file in ASCII text encoding. Unlike
the binary format created in Fast printing, the ASCII
text created with this selection can be edited.
CIE Option
CIE optimization is available when KPDL is selected in Device Settings > PDL >
Select PDL and Allow data passthrough is selected in PDL Settings > Settings
> KPDL Settings.
CIE refers to the Commission Internationale d'Eclairage, or in English the
International Commission on Illumination. The CIE standards organization has
developed device-independent color spaces that are supposed to be a true
representation of color as seen by the human eye. CIE color spaces are useful for
color space conversions. Abode's Lab Color space is based on CIE L*a*b*.
CIE optimization bypasses the normal procedure of processing every aspect of the
CIE color space used in applications such as Adobe Acrobat and Photoshop. This
feature will increase print speed for documents printed from these applications by
optimizing CIE data. It has no effect on print jobs that do not use CIE data. CIE
optimization should be selected for speed not accuracy, so printed output may be
different from appearance on the screen.
Halftone Screen (Monochrome Printing Systems Only)
An experienced user can adjust Halftone Screen settings to create shades of gray in
graphic images. The Halftone Screen process breaks down the image into dots.
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.
Halftone Screen is available only when KPDL is selected in the Device Settings tab,
in PDL Settings. If GDI compatible mode is selected in the PDL Settings dialog
box, Halftone Screen is unavailable.

Angle
Select the angle at which rows are aligned. An angle is
measured in degrees, ranging from -180 to +180.
Shape
Select the shape of the halftone dot. The choice for the
best halftone shape depends on the pattern and
number of colors for your image.
Ellipse Resists optical jump, which is when areas of
an image that should be smooth suddenly become
darker. An ellipse shape provides a smoother
gradation of tones. Choose for images with dark
areas.
Round Resists moiré formation and dot gain. Moiré
formation is an unintended pattern that occurs when
two or more colors are printed at the wrong angles.
The correct angles depend on the number of colors
being printed. Dot gain is when the halftone dots
increase when printed, causing a moiré pattern.
Choose for images with light tints and highlighted
areas.
Line Used for special effect. You can change the
effect by selecting a different Angle.

Color
Options in Color Mode let you choose how the printing system processes color
matching for a print job. Color matching is the process of accurately and consistently
converting RGB colors (colors as shown on the computer monitor) to CMYK colors
(colors as used for output printing). RGB is an acronym for Red, Green, and Blue.
CMYK is an acronym for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black.

Temporary and Permanent Jobs
Functions for jobs saved as Temporary and Permanent jobs are similar to the
functions for Quick Copy and other features described in Job Storage (e-MPS) on
page 8-1. However, these functions are provided for backward compatibility with
printing environments developed before the Job option. Similar to job options,
temporary and permanent jobs use electronic sorting for faster printing of jobs with

Temporary jobs are saved until the disk becomes full or until the printing system is
reset or turned off. Permanent jobs are saved until manually deleted at the printing
system’s operation panel or with KM-NET for Clients Job Manager.
The features are listed below:
•
Jobs are managed internally with job IDs and printed after saving by an
application (KM-NET for Clients Job Manager).
•
Barcode print output is supported and facilitates future printing with an optional
barcode reader.
•
Both types of jobs are saved on the hard disk, up to the user-defined capacity.
However, temporary jobs are automatically deleted if the defined capacity is
reached. Permanent jobs remain saved until removed by the user.

Virtual Mail Box
With the Virtual mail box feature, mail boxes created on the hard disk are assigned
to multiple users. Jobs posted to a virtual mail box can be printed later from the
printing system’s operation panel. Jobs saved in virtual mail boxes are automatically
deleted after printing, and jobs that have not been printed are saved if the printing
system is switched off. You must create and set up your mail boxes prior to using this
feature.
Note: The Virtual mail box feature is available when the printing system is set to
emulate KPDL, PCL 5e, PCL XL, or PCL 5c. For information on emulation settings,
refer to Page Description Language (PDL) on page 2-5.
Create a virtual mail box by specifying a mail box name and number. The figure

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.

Access code
Glossary
A
Access code A four-digit code you must enter at the printing system’s operation panel to
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.
D
dpi Dots per inch.
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.
Form gallery Job feature that stores up to 100 frequently used forms or images in the
printing system’s memory for easy access and retrieval. Saved forms can be combined with
other documents at the printing system’s operation panel.
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
PDF
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.
M
Mailbox Print job destination option that distributes print jobs to output trays when an optional device such as a Sorter stacker, Document finisher, or Mailbox is installed. Compare
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.
Operation panel The keys and display on the printing system. Use the operation panel to
set options such as media type and RAM disk size, and to print jobs stored on the optional
Hard disk.
P
Glossary
PDF The Adobe portable document format (PDF) is independent of the application software, hardware, and operating system used to create documents, and also of the output device on which they are displayed or printed.
v
PDL
PDL Page Description Language. This is the language used by your computer to tell the
printing system how to print a document. Availability of some printing options depends on the
selected PDL. Available page description languages are PCL XL, PCL 5e (monochrome
models only), PCL 5c (color models only), and KPDL.
Permanent job storage Job feature that stores print jobs in the printing system’s optional Hard disk. Jobs stored on the Hard disk can only be removed by manual deletion, so are
protected from being erased when the printing system is powered off or reset. For some models, a barcode can be printed on a Permanent print job.
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
printed out at the operation panel by using the Access code.
Profile A set of user defined driver settings that you save as a group. Once saved, you can
select a profile by name and apply its settings to a print job without selecting each feature
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
system’s optional Hard disk temporarily for later access. The stored Quick copy jobs can be
accessed from the printing system's operation panel.
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.
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.
Rotate copies Finishing mode that draws every other copy from a separate tray and
stacks them in a collated, multi-copy print job. The final stack clearly distinguishes each copy
horizontally and vertically. For restrictions see Finishing chapter.
vi

Watermark
S
Separation Finishing option that stacks print jobs in an output tray so that one print job or
copy is clearly distinguished from another. Separation options include Offset jobs and Rotate
copies.
Synergy print box (SPB) Job feature that combines electronic and copier data into one
document and stores it in your choice of virtual output print boxes. Copier documents and
print jobs from various applications can be combined. The job is printed out at the operation
panel by selecting the synergy print box ID number.
T
Tandem print Job option that distributes a large print job between two printing systems,
effectively doubling print speed and providing backup printing support. Requires installation
of the Tandem unit.
Temporary job storage Job feature that stores print jobs on the printing system’s optional Hard disk. Jobs are removed from memory when the Hard disk becomes full. For some
models, a barcode can be printed on a Temporary print job.
Transparency Clear sheet used as printing media.
Transparency interleaving A Publishing feature that inserts a backing sheet between
printed transparencies. The backing sheet, also known as an interleaf, helps keep transparencies clean and prevents the transparencies from clinging together.
U
User login Registers users with a user name and password. User login provides job re-
V
Virtual mail box Job feature that sends print jobs to a choice of virtual output trays, where
they are sorted and stored in the optional Hard disk rather than in physical mailboxes attached to the printing system. Jobs accumulate in a numbered virtual output tray until printed.
To print, specify the virtual output tray number using the printing system's operation panel or
an optional Barcode reader. Virtual mail box print jobs are deleted after printing. A total of 255
Virtual mail boxes can be assigned.
W
Watermark Advanced feature that lets you add semitransparent text to a document.
Glossary
striction by user, in contrast to the Job accounting feature, which assigns privileges by division or department. A maximum of 1000 login user names and passwords can be registered
at the printing system. One hundred user names and passwords can be stored in the printer
driver
