Printing Options Using Rolls and Sheets
The printer supports both rolls and sheets.
This section introduces the main features of each, as well as the main printing methods available. Select rolls or sheets to
suit your particular printing application.
Note
• For information on the types of paper the printer supports, refer to the Paper Reference Guide. (See "Types
of Paper.") →P.568
• A variety of other ways to print are available besides those introduced here. Choose the printing method that
suits your particular printing application, referring to "Working with Various Print Jobs" and "Enhanced
Printing Options" from the table of contents.
Roll printing
Media in spooled rolls is generally called Roll Media. Rolls are loaded on the Roll Holder, which are in turn loaded in the
printer.
Rolls can be used to print large photos or create posters or banners that cannot be printed on regular sheets.
• Large-format printing
Easily print vertical or horizontal banners from familiar applications such as Microsoft Office applications.
(See "Printing Vertical or Horizontal Banners (Large-Format Printing).") →P.120
• Borderless printing
Print without a margin (border) around posters or photos.
(See "Borderless Printing on Paper of Equivalent Size.") →P.104
(See "Borderless Printing by Resizing Originals to Fit the Roll Width.")
(See "Borderless Printing at Actual Size.") →P.95
→P.111
• Banner printing
You can print multiple pages as a single continuous image, without margins between pages.
(See "Printing Multiple Pages Continuously.") →P.144

• 90-degree rotation before printing
Originals in portrait orientation are rotated 90 degrees when possible to use paper more efficiently.
(See "Conserving Roll Paper by Rotating Originals 90 Degrees.") →P.174
• Enlarged/reduced printing
You can freely adjust the size of originals by enlarging or reducing originals before printing.
(See "Resizing Originals to Match the Paper Size.") →P.69
(See "Resizing Originals to Fit the Roll Width.") →P.75
(See "Resizing Originals by Entering a Scaling Value.") →P.81

Printing on Oversized Paper
Except in borderless printing, the actual printing area corresponds to your selected paper size minus the space for a margin
(See "Print Area →P.837 "). To print documents or images you prepare without a margin at actual size, use an oversized
paper size.
For example, to print a A4-sized original without a margin at A4 size, print it on paper larger than A4 size and cut away the
excess margin.
2
Note
• If you prepare an original for printing without a margin and print it on paper of regular size, the image near
the edge will not be printed.
• Oversize
The margin required by the printer is added around the outside of a regular paper size. For example, when printing a
A4-sized original (210×297 mm), you have the following options.
• (a) Regular paper size: Gray area not printed
• (b) Page Size
• (c) Oversized paper size: Print area matches the page size (b)
Important
• When printing on oversize paper, load paper larger than the page size—a size that includes the margin
required by the printer.
• Sheets: Load paper that is at least 6 mm (0.24 in) wider and 26 mm (1 in) higher than the page size
• Rolls: Load paper that is at least 6 mm (0.24 in) wider and 6 mm (0.24 in) higher than the page size

Borderless Printing at Actual Size
Take advantage of borderless printing to print documents such as posters (made up mainly of photos or images) without a
surrounding margin, or border.
• Borderless Printing
In regular printing, a margin required by the printer is added around the original. With borderless printing, you can
print documents without the margin, so that the printed image covers the entire surface of the paper.
95
iPF750
Borderless Printing at Actual Size
Enhanced Printing Options > Printing at full size >
Important
• Borderless printing is only available with rolls.
• Paper you can use for borderless printing is restricted to particular types of paper and rolls of particular
widths. For information on types of paper compatible with borderless printing, refer to the Paper Reference Guide. (See "Types of Paper →P.568 ")
• Paper incompatible with the printer's auto cut function can be printed without borders on the left and
right sides only.
• These features cannot be used in combination with borderless printing: special page layouts, centering
originals, and printing cut lines on rolls.
• If Fit Paper Size or Print Image with Actual Size (Windows only) is selected when performing borderless printing, Rotate Page 90 degrees (Conserve Paper) cannot be selected.
2
• When borderless printing is used, the edge of the paper is cut during printing. Thus, ink density may be
uneven at the edges. If you require higher image quality, specify No in Auto Cut in the printer driver. In
this case, the paper can be printed without borders on the left and right sides only. After ejecting and
cutting the printed document, use scissors to cut away the top and bottom edges.
• By factory default, the ink drying time is disabled for all paper. When you are using paper that takes
longer for ink to adhere for borderless printing and the Cutter Unit touches printing surfaces that are not
dry yet, it may damage the paper or the edge of the document that is cut, depending on frequency of use.
In this case, follow these steps to change the ink drying time.
• On the Main sheet of the printer driver, click Settings in Media Type.
• Select the ink drying time in the Between Pages list of Drying Time.
• Borderless Printing Method
Choose the method of borderless printing that suits the original, as desired.
• Print Image with Actual Size
Prints originals at actual size, without enlarging or reducing them. Originals must be prepared in a size that exceeds the
dimensions of the paper by 3 mm (0.12 in) on each side.
96
Note
• Not all page sizes are available.
• Even if you prepare originals of the same size as the paper size, the originals are automatically enlarged
when you print borderlessly in combination with resizing originals to match the paper size. This may
affect image quality. When image quality is most important, make the original 3 mm longer on each
side than the paper size so that the image can be printed at actual size in borderless printing.
For instructions on borderless printing of photos and images at actual size, refer to the following topics, as appropriate
for your computer and operating system.

In regular printing, a margin required by the printer is added around the original. With borderless printing, you can
print documents without the margin, so that the printed image covers the entire surface of the paper.
Important
• Borderless printing is only available with rolls.
• Paper you can use for borderless printing is restricted to particular types of paper and rolls of particular
widths. For information on types of paper compatible with borderless printing, refer to the Paper Reference Guide. (Refer to "Types of Paper →P.568 ")
• Paper incompatible with the printer's auto cut function can be printed without borders on the left and
right sides only.
• These features cannot be used in combination with borderless printing: special page layouts, centering
originals, and printing cut lines on rolls.
• If Fit Paper Size or Print Image with Actual Size (Windows only) is selected when performing borderless printing, Rotate Page 90 degrees (Conserve Paper) cannot be selected.
• When borderless printing is used, the edge of the paper is cut during printing. Thus, ink density may be
slightly uneven at the edges. If you require higher image quality, specify No in Auto Cut in the printer
driver. In this case, the paper can be printed without borders on the left and right sides only. Cut the
printed document ejected from the printer, then use scissors to cut away the edges on the top and bottom.
• By factory default, the ink drying time is disabled for all paper. When you are using paper that takes
longer for ink to adhere for borderless printing and the Cutter Unit touches printing surfaces that are not
dry yet, it may damage the paper or the edge of the document that is cut, depending on frequency of use.
In this case, follow these steps to change the ink drying time.

Changing the Type of Paper
Follow these steps to change the type of paper specified on the printer after you have loaded paper.

Important
• For best printing results, the printer fine-tunes the print head height and the feed amount for each type of
paper. Be sure to select the type of paper to use correctly before printing.

When you are using paper that takes longer for ink to adhere, ink may be transferred onto the paper surface during ejection,
soiling it. In that case, you may be able to improve the condition by setting the time to wait for the ink to dry after printing.
Note
• If the Cutter touches the print surface on which the ink is not dry, the paper surface may become scratched or
soiled, or the paper surface may rub against the output stacker when the paper falls and the surface may become soiled.

Cutting the Leading Edge of Roll Paper Automatically
If the leading edge of a roll is crooked or warped, it may cause an error message or printing problems. In this case, set Trim
Edge First to Automatic or On in the Paper Menu on the Control Panel to have the printer cut the leading edge to make
the edge straight after you load a roll.
Trim Edge First offers the following options.
• Automatic
If the left and right side of the leading edge of the roll ((a) and (b)) are uneven by 3 mm (0.12 in) or more when you
load the roll, the edge is cut an amount relative to the slant to ensure a straight edge, and scraps are removed. The edge
is not cut if the unevenness is less than 3 mm. However, paper may sometimes be cut, depending on the state of the
leading edge.
• Off
The edge is not cut and scraps are not removed. This setting is Off for most types of paper, by default. For more information, see the Paper Reference Guide. (See "Types of Paper.") →P.568

The leading edge is cut off when you load a roll, and scraps are removed. The amount of paper cut from the leading
edge varies depending on the type of paper. For more information, see the Paper Reference Guide. (See "Types of
Paper.") →P.568
Important
• If the width of the paper differs, setting Skew Check Lv. to Loose relaxes the accuracy of the paper skew
detection feature, and setting it to Off ignores the skew detection feature. However, when Off is selected and
the paper is loaded skewed, a paper jam may result or the Platen may become soiled.
Note

(after the printhead finishes moving in one direction), in consideration of how quickly the ink dries. Also specify the applicable area for the ink drying time. Select Entire area to apply
the ink drying time after each scan until the document is fully
printed. Select Leading edge to apply the ink drying time after each scan only in the area 110–140 mm from the leading
edge. (The applicable length varies depending on the Print
Quality setting.) Note that printing will take longer if you
specify the Scan Wait Time setting. In particular, when
Leading edge is selected, colors may be uneven in the boundary between the areas with and without a drying time.
Roll DryingTime
Specify the time to wait for the ink to dry for each sheet.
NearEnd
RollMrgn
Specify the minimum margin at the leading edge of roll paper
to ensure better printing quality at the leading edge.
Note that if you choose 3mm, it may lower the printing quality at the leading edge and affect feeding accuracy. The printed
surface may be scratched, and ink may adhere to the leading
edge. It may also cause the Platen to become soiled.

Bordless Margin
Adjust the margin during borderless printing.
Choose Automatic to have the printer automatically detect
the paper width and configure the margin settings for borderless printing. If margins are mistakenly created when Automatic is selected, choose Fixed. In this case, the paper width
is not detected automatically, and the document is printed
without borders, using the margin settings required by the
printer.

Using RemoteUI
Using RemoteUI .............................................................................................................................................. 696
Using RemoteUI
RemoteUI is software with which you can access the printer via the network from your Web browser to confirm the printer
status, operate jobs, and configure the settings. Since the software (Web server) for using RemoteUI is built in the printer,
preparing software other than a Web browser is unnecessary. You can use RemoteUI if an imagePROGRAF printer on a
network is connected to your computer. If you start your Web browser and specify the IP address of the printer, the RemoteUI screen is displayed, and you can use RemoteUI.
Important
• To use RemoteUI, an IP address must be set on the printer in advance. For the method of setting an IP address, see "Configuring the IP Address on the Printer." →P.699
What You Can Do With RemoteUI
With RemoteUI, you can access the printer via a network, configure network settings, and display the current status of the
printer, various types of information, the processing status of jobs, etc.
Starting RemoteUI
Start RemoteUI by the following operations.

1. Start your Web browser.
2. Enter
the following URL in Address or Location.
http://printer IP address or name/

• This cannot be used connected via a proxy server. In environments where a proxy server is used, add the
printer's IP address to Exceptions (addresses accessed without a proxy server) in the web browser proxy
server settings. (Settings may vary depending on the network environment.)
• Enable JavaScript and cookies in the web browser.
• If you access RemoteUI with the printer name instead of its IP address, make sure the DNS settings are correctly configured.
• Depending on the network environment, you may not be able to start RemoteUI.
• Confirm whether System Setup > Use RemoteUI is set to On on the Control Panel of the printer.

Configuring the IP Address on the Printer
You must configure the printer's IP address before using the printer in a TCP/IP network.
The printer's IP address is configured automatically when you install the printer driver following the instructions in the Setup Guide.
Configure the IP address by using imagePROGRAF Device Setup Utility, the printer Control Panel, or ARP or PING commands, if the IP address is changed, or if you change the printer connection mode to a network connection. For details on
configuring the IP address, refer to the following topics.
• Configuring the IP Address Using imagePROGRAF Device Setup Utility
• Configuring the IP Address Using the Printer Control Panel →P.700
• Configuring the IP Address Using ARP and PING Commands →P.701
→P.408
(Windows)
Important
• If you use a DHCP server for automatic assignment of the printer's IP address, printing may no longer be
possible after the printer is turned off and on. This is because an IP address different from before has been
assigned. Thus, when using DHCP server functions, consult your network administrator and configure the
settings in one of the following ways.
9
• Configure the setting for dynamic DNS updating
In the printer menu, either set DNS Dync update to On, or activate the setting Enable DNS Dynamic
Update in RemoteUI.
(See "Menu Settings.") →P.673
(See "Configuring the Printer's TCP/IP Network Settings With RemoteUI.") →P.704
• Configure the setting for assignment of the same IP address each time the printer starts up
Note
• We recommend configuring the printer's IP address even if you will use the printer in networks other than
TCP/IP networks. Configuring the printer's IP address enables you to use RemoteUI to configure the network
settings and manage the printer with a web browser.

Specifying NetWare Print Services
Before printing in a NetWare network, you must configure print services such as print servers, print queues, and so on. You
can configure the print service settings from a computer using any of the following Novell software provided with NetWare.
• NWADMIN
• PCONSOLE
9
Important
• If you use NWADMIN to configure the print service settings, Novell Client (the Novell NetWare client software) must be installed as the client software application.
• NetWare networking is unsupported in Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7.
This topic gives instructions for configuring NetWare print services. The order of this procedure may vary depending on the
environment.
Choosing the type of print services
Before completing print service settings, choose the type of print service. Refer to the following descriptions as needed.
Note
• In NetWare 5.1 or 6.0, NDPS may also be used as the print service. If you use NDPS, use the Novell printer
gateway included with NetWare. For details on configuring NDPS, refer to the NetWare documentation.
713
• NDS (Novell Directory Service) and bindery
NDS and bindery are both supported. Use the mode that is compatible with your network environment.
• Queue server mode and remote printer mode
Queue server mode and remote printer mode are both supported.
• Queue server mode
iPF750
Specifying NetWare Print Services
Network Setting > NetWare Settings >
When using queue server mode, all print server functions are supported, so there is no need for other print server
software or hardware. In NDS queue server mode (NDS PServer), the NDS print server is used for printing. In
bindery queue server mode (Bindery PServer), the bindery print server is used for printing. Note that if you use
queue server mode, a NetWare user license is required for each network interface.
• Remote printer mode
In remote printer mode, the printer is controlled by the NetWare print server. Thus, a NetWare print server is required. In NDS remote printer mode (NPrinter), the NDS print server is used for printing, and in bindery remote
printer mode (RPrinter), the bindery print server is used for printing.
Using NWADMIN or PCONSOLE to set up the print server

Troubleshooting > Other problems >
If the Printer Makes a Strange Sound
Cause
Corrective Action
The printer
makes a
sound during
operation.
The following sounds do not indicate a problem with the printer.
• There is a sound of suction from the Platen
To prevent paper from rising, paper is held against the Platen by suction from Vacuum holes under
it.
• There is a sound when a different size of paper is used and when the Carriage goes from side to
side
When paper of a different size is used, a valve is automatically activated to switch the area for paper suction, which may make a sound. This mechanism prevents suction from Vacuum holes where
there is no paper.
In addition, ink is ejected in sync with the movement of the Carriage back and forth to ensure optimal ink flow. At this time, the valve automatically switches the area for paper suction, which may
make a sound.
• Roll paper makes a fluttering sound during printing
There may be a fluttering sound when large paper is advanced.
• If you suddenly hear the tone for cleaning operations
At regular intervals, for printer maintenance, cleaning operations will begin automatically, even if
the printer is in Sleep mode.
• If you suddenly hear the tone for ink agitation
At regular intervals, to ensure optimal printing quality, the ink is agitated automatically, even if the
printer is in Sleep mode. Ink agitation takes about 30 seconds.
The ink is also agitated automatically under the following conditions. Note that other operations are
not possible while "Agitating" is displayed on the control panel.
• After the printer is turned on. (The time for agitation varies depending on how long the printer
was off—between about 30 seconds and two minutes.)
• After data transmission. (After about a minute and a half, printing operations begin. However,
printing may start later after data reception, depending on the size of print data.)
• After ink tank replacement. (Ink agitation takes about three and a half minutes.)
In other cases, contact your Canon dealer.

Head Cleaning B in the Control Panel menu is executed
frequently.
Head Cleaning B in the Control Panel menu consumes a lot of ink. This does not
indicate a problem with the printer. Unless the printer has been moved or stored for a
long period or you are troubleshooting Printhead problems, we recommend not performing Head Cleaning B, to the extent possible.
You have just finished initial
installation, when more ink is
consumed to fill the system.
After initial installation or at the first-time use after transfer, ink flows into the system between the Ink Tank and Printhead, which may cause the ink level indicators to
drop to 80%. This does not indicate a problem with the printer.
The Printhead nozzles are
clogged.
Check for nozzle clogging.
(See "Checking for Nozzle Clogging.") →P.739
Ink Level Detection
Ink level detection will be deactivated if you load ink tanks once emptied.
Ink level detection
Ink tanks specified for this printer feature an ink level detection function to prevent the ink from running out during printing, which prevents printer damage. (See "Ink Tanks.") →P.731
This function will not work correctly if you use refill ink tanks. As a result, printing stops. Thus, before using refill ink
tanks, you must cancel the ink level detection.
Printing with the ink level detection canceled may lead to printer damage and printing problems. Canon Inc. is not liable for
any damage that may occur as a result of refilling ink.
Important
• After ink level detection has been released, this function cannot be reactivated for currently loaded Ink Tank.
To use ink level detection again, replace the Ink Tank with new ones specified for use with the printer.
• Repeatedly removing and inserting an Ink Tank may damage the connection between the Ink Tank and the
printer, which may cause ink leakage from the Ink Tank and damage the printer.
