Chapter 1:
Printing from
Windows
Computers
Printing from applications
This chapter describes printing to the Fiery EX2101 from Windows computers. You
can print from a networked Windows computer or a computer using Windows
(WINS) printing. You can also print to a file so that it can be printed at a remote
location (see “Saving files to print at a remote location” on page 1-29). In addition to
these methods, you can download files to the Fiery EX2101 using Fiery Downloader
(see Chapter 4), and print documents using Hot Folders (optional) and Fiery E-mail
Services (see Chapter 6 and Chapter 8, respectively).
N OTE : For information on setting up the Windows environment for printing with
Windows servers connected to the Fiery EX2101, see the Configuration Guide. For
information about connecting to the Fiery EX2101 over the network, installing printer
drivers, and installing Fiery® utilities, see the User Software Installation Guide.
Printing from applications
Once the Fiery EX2101 printer driver is installed and set to the proper port, as
described in the User Software Installation Guide, you can print directly from most
Windows applications. Set the print options for the job and choose the Print
command from within your application.

Printing from Windows Computers
Setting options and printing from Windows computers
To print from Windows computers, install the corresponding PostScript printer
driver or PCL printer driver. The drivers are included in the Fiery EX2101 User
Software CD.
Once the printer driver and a corresponding printer description file are installed, you
can specify print settings for a particular job and print it to the Fiery EX2101. You can
also set default print settings using the driver.
To print from Windows applications by connecting your computer to a print server via
the network, a Novell NetWare, Windows NT/2000/2003, or UNIX server is
required. For more information, see the Configuration Guide.
To print from Windows applications without connecting to a print server,
you can use Server Message Block (SMB) printing. For more information, see the
User Software Installation Guide.
The following procedures explain how to use the printer driver to specify
print options. For information about specific print options, see Appendix A.
N OTE : The following procedures use Windows 2000 illustrations. The interface may
vary slightly depending on whether you are using the PostScript or PCL driver. Major
differences are noted.

Using Fiery Downloader or Fiery WebDownloader
Occasionally, you may want to use Adobe Type 1 (Windows) or PostScript (Mac OS)
fonts that are not included with the Fiery EX2101. If so, you must install both the
screen fonts and the printer fonts on your computer. To do this, follow the instructions
from the font manufacturer.
Downloading printer fonts to the Fiery EX2101
In general, each time you print from within a Mac OS application, the application
automatically downloads any fonts used in your document that are not already
installed on the Fiery EX2101, as long as the printer fonts are installed in your
System Folder. These fonts remain in the Fiery EX2101 only until your document has
printed. If you print the same document again, your application must download the
fonts again.
If you regularly use one or more fonts from Windows or Mac OS applications that are
not already installed in the Fiery EX2101, you can save time by downloading them to
the Fiery EX2101 hard disk with Fiery Downloader. Fonts you download to the
Fiery EX2101 hard disk remain installed until you remove them using Fiery
Downloader, no matter how many times the Fiery EX2101 is turned off and on.
Consider downloading fonts you use on a regular basis to the Fiery EX2101 hard disk.
Before you download PostScript, TIFF, VPS, or EPS files with Fiery Downloader,
make sure all fonts included in your file are installed on the Fiery EX2101 or
embedded in your file; otherwise, the text in these fonts will not print correctly or may
not print at all. For PDF files, font substitution occurs automatically for fonts not
installed on the Fiery EX2101. Two multiple master fonts (a serif font and a sans serif
font) stored on the Fiery EX2101 are used exclusively for substitution with PDF files.

Documents
About variable data printing
This chapter describes the variable data printing features supported by the
Fiery EX2101, including:
• Background information about variable data printing
• Printing variable data documents using FreeForm™ and FreeForm 2
About variable data printing
Variable data printing is typically used for direct-mail advertising or other targeted
mailings. It involves combining a set of master elements that are common across copies
of a document with a set of variable elements that change from copy to copy. An
example is a brochure that greets customers by name and may include other personal
information about the customer obtained from a marketing database. Background
elements, illustrations, and text blocks that do not change across copies of the brochure
comprise the master elements. The customer’s name and other customer-specific
information comprise the variable elements.
The Fiery EX2101 supports the following methods of variable data printing:
• The FreeForm feature allows you to use print options to define and store
master-element documents—called FreeForm masters—on the Fiery EX2101. You
can send a variable-element job to the Fiery EX2101 with instructions to combine
the job with a particular FreeForm master.
• The FreeForm 2 feature allows you to assign specific page rules of a FreeForm master
to each page of a variable job. To use FreeForm 2, you must create and print the
variable job in a popular variable data printing application, such as PrintShop
Mail-Fiery Version.
• PPML variable data formats.
N OTE : PrintShop Mail-Fiery Version and Pageflex Persona-Fiery Version are options.
N OTE : You can print VPS files only from QuarkXPress on Mac OS computers. To
print, you need to have Darwin Desktop (a Creo product) installed.

Printing Variable Data Documents

For more information, see Appendix A.
Printing variable data documents with FreeForm
In FreeForm variable data printing, you can use print options to define master
documents and assign them to variable data jobs sent to the Fiery EX2101.
How FreeForm works
The basic premise of FreeForm variable data printing is that the master-element data
for the job can be sent to the Fiery EX2101 and rasterized separately from the
variable-element data. The master-element data is stored on the Fiery EX2101 in
rasterized form as a FreeForm master, and can be used as often as needed with multiple
sets of variable-element data. Because the FreeForm master job is preRIPped and
stored on the Fiery EX2101, the only RIP time required for variable data print jobs is
the time needed to RIP the variable-element data. You can use FreeForm masters for
any fixed-element data you might combine with different data from day to day. For
example, a letterhead template can be stored as a FreeForm master and used repeatedly
as the background for different letter content (the variable-element data).
FreeForm allows you to create the master and variable documents using any
application. You can create the two documents using different applications or
computer platforms. To create the masters document, you can use a page layout or
graphics application. To create the variable document, you can use a word processing
application that has a mail merge feature, a page layout application that supports
scripting, or a database application.
FreeForm functions are controlled with two print options: Create Master and Use
Master. You can set these options in the printer driver when you send a job, or instruct
the operator to set them with job overrides from the job management tools. You can
also use Command WorkStation/Command WorkStation LE to monitor and manage
all the FreeForm masters stored on the Fiery EX2101. For more information, see the
Job Management Guide.
5
5-3
Printing variable data documents with FreeForm
Creating the master document
Before you can use FreeForm, you must create a master document and a variable
document. This includes creating the layout for the combined document, as well as the
elements themselves. In a page layout or graphics program, you arrange the master
elements (text and graphics that do not change) on one or more pages, leaving space
for the variable elements.
Space for variable elements
Unchanging master elements
Master document
When you have finalized the design of the master document, print it to the
Fiery EX2101 and specify that a FreeForm master be created from the job (see
page 5-9).
N OTE : Although the Fiery EX2101 can store up to 100 FreeForm masters, the printer
driver interface and Fiery WebSpooler/Fiery Spooler allow you to select numbers 1
through 15 only. To create a FreeForm master with a number greater than 15, the
operator must set the Create Master and Use Master options and RIP the job from
Command WorkStation/Command WorkStation LE.
5
5-4
Printing Variable Data Documents
Creating the variable document
You can create the variable document with a word processing application that provides
a mail merge function, a database application, or a page layout application that
supports scripting. In all cases, information is taken from a list or database and merged
into an existing document that is set up to accept the information. Each application
has different controls for this function; for detailed instructions, see the application
documentation. Before the variable elements can be added to the master document,
they must be formatted to conform to the layout of the master document. To do this,
you create a document with the correct formatting, and then add the variable
information in the appropriate places.
For efficient variable data printing, create a variable document that has significantly
more pages than its corresponding FreeForm master.
Variable element
Variable document
When you have created a variable document, print it to the Fiery EX2101 and specify
that it be combined with the corresponding FreeForm master (see page 5-9).

5-5
Printing variable data documents with FreeForm
Combining the FreeForm master with the variable document
When you print a variable document to the Fiery EX2101, you specify the
FreeForm master created from your master document with the Use Master print
option. The Fiery EX2101 combines the raster data of the variable document with
the already RIPped FreeForm master, creating a new raster data file. The merged
raster file can be soft-proofed (before it is printed) in the thumbnail windows of the
job management tools.
For more information about soft-proofing and thumbnail windows of the job
management tools, see the Job Management Guide.

5-6
Printing Variable Data Documents
A master document can include more than one page. When you print a variable
document and specify a FreeForm master that contains multiple pages, the variable
pages are combined with the master pages in a cyclical fashion. The following example
illustrates how a variable document combines with a two-page master document.
Pages 1 and 2 of the variable document are combined with Pages 1 and 2, respectively,
of the master document. The cycle of master pages then starts over, and Pages 3 and 4
of the variable document are combined respectively with Pages 1 and 2, again, of the
master document. This pattern continues for each subsequent set of pages in the
variable document.

Printing variable data documents with FreeForm
Using FreeForm
This section provides some suggestions to help you print variable data jobs correctly.
• Consult your administrator or operator on how FreeForm master numbers are
assigned at your site.
If FreeForm printing is used by a large number of users at your site, FreeForm master
numbers, or ranges of numbers, can be assigned to specific users or groups. Users can
select only numbers 1 through 15 as print option settings. The operator can override
FreeForm master numbers and reassign them to numbers greater than 15 from
Command WorkStation. You may want the operator to assign all FreeForm master
numbers to avoid potential conflicts in the use of FreeForm master numbers.
• Use the Job Notes and Instructions fields to communicate instructions about your
job to the operator.
If you want to create or use a FreeForm master number greater than 15, these fields
can be used to tell the operator to override the appropriate job setting (Create
Master or Use Master) and RIP the job from Command WorkStation.
• Give your jobs unique and descriptive names.
Both you and the operator must be able to easily identify your jobs if there are many
jobs in the queues, the FreeForm master numbers are reassigned, or you want to
refer to another job in the Job Notes or Instructions fields.
• For restrictions on print option settings when using FreeForm, see Appendix A.

Printing variable data documents with FreeForm 2
FreeForm 2 extends the functionality of variable data documents using a third-party
application that supports FreeForm 2, such as PrintShop Mail-Fiery Version, which
allows you to create and print variable data documents.
To print a variable data job using FreeForm 2, open the variable document in the
third-party application. The third-party application provides FreeForm 2 features
that allow you to assign a specific page of a FreeForm master to each page of the
variable document.
5
5-14
Printing Variable Data Documents
FreeForm 2 enables you to specify page conditions that determine rules for individual
Master pages. These rules, described by if and then statements in each Master page,
allow you to skip or print pages within a Master file. For more information on
creating page conditions, see the documentation that came with your third-party
printing application.
For instructions on creating a variable data job or printing variable data jobs using
FreeForm 2 and the third-party variable data printing software, see the documentation
that came with the third-party printing software.
FreeForm 2 also provides the option to delete a specified FreeForm master from the
Fiery EX2101 hard disk after its corresponding variable job has been successfully
RIPped and printed. You can set this feature in a third-party application that supports
the clearing of FreeForm masters. For more information on deleting FreeForm masters,
see the documentation that came with the third-party printing software.
Printing documents from variable-data printing
applications
As an alternative to FreeForm or FreeForm 2, you can design the master and variable
elements of your job using a variable-data printing application, such as Pageflex
Persona-Fiery Version. You can then print the job to the Fiery EX2101 from the
application using a compatible file format. The Fiery EX2101 is compatible with the
following variable data format:
• Xerox VIPP (Variable data Intelligent PostScript PrintWare) version 4.0
5
5-15
Printing documents from variable-data printing applications
For more information about printing documents with variable-data formats, see the
documentation that came with the third-party printing software.
When you send a job to the Fiery EX2101 using VIPP, the Fiery EX2101
automatically stores and reuses the master elements that are defined in the job.
Using the Fiery VDP Resource Manager
VIPP jobs contain all the global objects for an environment created by a third-party
application such as PrintShop Mail-Fiery Version. Global objects are the required
images that are downloaded to the Fiery EX2101 for VIPP jobs with variable elements.
These images are stored and cached as a group in an environment. The images can
then be reused for future VIPP jobs.
The global objects in each environment can be managed with the Fiery VDP Resource
Manager utility. You can view all the installed global objects in the Fiery EX2101 VDP
cache area. For a project, all global objects are grouped under an environment name.
To install and configure the Fiery VDP Resource Manager, see the User Software
Installation Guide. To view and delete global objects, use the following the procedure.

Using EFI
Hot Folders
Overview of Hot Folders
This chapter describes how to use the EFI Hot Folders application to store and
reuse frequently used print options when printing PostScript and PDF files on the
Fiery EX2101. The Hot Folders application is an optional feature of the Fiery Graphic
Arts Package that is enabled by a dongle.
Overview of Hot Folders
A Hot Folder is a special folder to which you can assign a group of print options.
To print a document, drag and drop the document file onto the Hot Folder. The
Hot Folder application routes the job to a corresponding print queue using the print
options associated with that Hot Folder.
N OTE : After printing original data, you may notice additional numbers at the end of
the original file name.
You can create as many Hot Folders as you want on your computer. You can also share
Hot Folders with other users on the network by creating shortcuts to the folders from
remote computers.
To begin working with Hot Folders, create one or more Hot Folders, assigning print
options and a print queue to each (see “Creating and deleting Hot Folders” on
page 6-4). You can then print jobs by dragging and dropping the document files onto
the corresponding Hot Folders. You can also print a job by printing the document file
from the source application, with the appropriate Hot Folder specified as the print
destination. The Hot Folder Control Panel allows you to manage your Hot Folders
and monitor the status of jobs sent to the folders (see “Using the Hot Folder Control
Panel” on page 6-3).

Using EFI Hot Folders
File format restrictions
The Hot Folder application supports the printing of PostScript and PDF jobs.
However, if you specify print options that differ from and override the printer default
options, or specify imposition options, the Fiery EX2101 may offer only restricted file
format support. These restrictions vary, depending on the Fiery EX2101 associated
with the Hot Folder.

Using Fiery
E-mail Service
How Fiery E-mail Service works
The Fiery E-mail Service allows you to remotely print to and control the Fiery EX2101
using your current e-mail infrastructure. It allows you to print to remote locations
and bypass firewalls. With E-mail Service, you can submit jobs to the Fiery EX2101 as
e-mail attachments. You use E-mail Service to print using an E-mail Client.
How Fiery E-mail Service works
In order to use the e-mail services, you must set up E-mail Service as described in
the Configuration Guide.
To print with an E-mail Client, you send a file as an e-mail attachment, and E-mail
Service extracts the file and sends it to the Fiery EX2101. The attachment can be in
any format the Fiery EX2101 recognizes (PS, EPS, PDF, and TIFF).
The Fiery EX2101 also supports internal address books. Administrators can retrieve,
add, delete, and clear addresses from the address books by sending requests via e-mail.
For more information about address books, see the Configuration Guide.
N OTE : Fiery E-Mail Service will not process .vbs, .exe, .bat, or .txt extensions.
Printing using an E-mail Client
You can submit print jobs to the Fiery EX2101 in the form of an e-mail attachment
using your e-mail application. When you send an e-mail with an attachment, E-mail
Service extracts the file and sends it to the Fiery EX2101 Print queue. The file format
must be one supported by the Fiery EX2101.
By default, anyone can print with an E-mail Client, unless the Print address book has
been set up by the administrator. If your e-mail address is not in the Print address
book, you cannot send files to the Fiery EX2101 via e-mail. For more information
about address books, see the Configuration Guide.

Printing using an E-mail Client
Send the e-mail.
The file is sent to the Fiery EX2101 and the job is printed. After the Fiery EX2101
receives the job, you receive an e-mail notification that the print job was accepted. The
e-mail also provides a job identification (ID). You can use the job IDs to manage jobs
with Job Control (see the following section). The e-mail notification indicates any
current error at the copier.
Once the job has been printed, you receive a second e-mail notification that indicates
the job printed successfully.
To check the status of your job, you can use Job Control to see if the job printed
out successfully.
Job Control
You can manage personal jobs when printing by submitting commands to the
Fiery EX2101 via e-mail. You can cancel a job, check job status, and inquire help on
a job. Once you send a command, the Fiery EX2101 returns an e-mail response.

Print Options
Print Options
Print options give you access to the special features of your copier and Fiery EX2101.
Print options can be specified in several places—in Fiery EX2101 Setup, or from the
printing application, Fiery Downloader, and the job management tools. The table in
this appendix briefly describes each print option and default setting, and provides
information on any constraints or requirements in effect.
About printer drivers and printer description files
The Fiery EX2101 receives files from computers on the network, processes (RIPs)
them, and then sends them to the copier. Windows and Mac OS computers
communicate with the Fiery EX2101 by means of a printer driver and printer
description (PPD) files. Windows computers can also communicate with the
Fiery EX2101 by means of a Printer Control Language (PCL) printer driver and PDD
files (PCL’s equivalent of PPD files). Both drivers enable you to use special features of
the Fiery EX2101 from the Print dialog box.
A printer driver manages printing communication between your application and the
printer. It interprets the instructions generated by the application, merges those
instructions with printer-specific options you specify, and translates all information
into PostScript or PCL, a language the printer understands. In other words, the printer
driver writes a PostScript or PCL file based on your original file and the options you set
from the Print dialog box.
A printer driver also allows you to select print options for your copier. To do this, the
printer driver must be matched with a PPD/PDD file for your Fiery EX2101.
A PPD/PDD file contains information about the features and capabilities of a
particular device (for example, what paper sizes and media types are supported). The
printer driver reads the information in this file and presents that information to you in
the form of options you can choose from the Print dialog box. The PPD/PDD for the
Fiery EX2101 includes information about the features of both the copier and the
Fiery EX2101. For information on the specific print options for the Fiery EX2101, see
the table on page A-2.

Print Options
Where to set print options
• During Setup
Some settings are specified during Setup by the administrator. For information on
the current default server settings, contact the administrator or the operator.
• From applications
With the printer drivers, you can specify job settings when you print a job. For
information about specifying job settings from applications, see Chapters 1 and 2.
• From Fiery Downloader
Only a few settings—Copies, Page Range (for PDF files only), and Brightness (for
PostScript and EPS files only)—can be specified when printing jobs with Fiery
Downloader. To change options in Fiery Downloader, select a job in the Files to be
Downloaded (Windows) or Files to Download (Mac OS) list and click Options.
For more information, see Chapter 4.
• Overrides from the job management tools
To change job settings from Command WorkStation, double-click a job to display
the Job Properties dialog box. To change job settings from Fiery WebSpooler and
Fiery Spooler, double-click a job to display the Override Print Settings dialog box.
For more information, see the Job Management Guide.

Print Options
Print option override hierarchy
The override hierarchy is as follows:
• A user’s printer driver settings override the Fiery EX2101 Setup settings.
• Settings made from the job management tools override the user’s printer
driver settings.
Default settings
In the following table, underlined settings in the Option and settings column indicate
default printer driver settings (PPD/PDD defaults). If you do not use the printer driver
interface to configure a particular option, the Fiery EX2101 prints the job with the
underlined setting.
For options that can be configured in Setup from the Control Panel, Command
WorkStation, or WebSetup, choosing Printer’s default results in the Fiery EX2101
printing the job with the Setup setting specified. For options that cannot be
configured in Setup, the Fiery EX2101 prints the job with a pre-configured Printer’s
default setting. For more information, see the Requirements, constraints, and
information column.
To determine the current Setup defaults, print the Configuration page from
Command WorkStation/Command WorkStation LE or the Fiery EX2101
Control Panel.

For each page range, enter the page numbers and specify the options for that range.
You can choose your specifications from the following options:
Page Range—Enter a page number or the range of page numbers. Use a hyphen to
define a range of sequential pages. For example, 1-3 prints the first three pages on a
particular media type. The range -14 prints the first 14 pages; 5- prints Page 5 through
the end of the document. If all the pages in multiple ranges use the same media type,
you can combine ranges with a comma; for example, 4-5, 9-10.
You can insert a blank sheet by entering ^. For example, entering ^6 into the Page
Range option inserts a blank sheet before page 6.
N OTE : You cannot combine a single page with page ranges.
Duplex—Select Top-Top to print duplex so that the top of the image on Side 1 is on
the same edge of the page as the top of the image on Side 2, or Top-Bottom to print
duplex so that the top of the image on Side 1 is on the opposite edge of the page from
the top of the image on Side 2. Duplex must first be selected in the printer driver
before you can specify duplex printing with mixed media. The first page of duplex
pages is always printed on the front of the sheet.
Media Color—Select a color of media you want to use for the range.
Media Type—Select a type of media you want to use for the range.
Paper Source—Select a paper tray with a media you want to use for the range.
N OTE : Document Default represents the setting you make outside the Mixed Media
dialog box. For example, if you set Paper Source to Tray 1 under the Paper Source print
option bar, Document Default for Paper Source in the Mixed Media dialog box is
equal to Tray 1.
N OTE : If options are not specified for page(s) that fall between specified pages or

computer. For example, in most applications, to use “Bodoni-Bold,” choose Bodoni
Bold from the Font menu.
• The Windows menu name is the name as it appears on the Font menu on a
Windows computer. The style refers to the style that must be selected in the
application to access the particular PostScript font. For example, to use
“Bodoni-Bold,” choose Bodoni from the Font menu and Bold from the Style menu.

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting
This appendix provides troubleshooting tips.
Maintaining optimal system performance
The Fiery EX2101 does not require maintenance. Beyond the routine requirements of
servicing and maintaining the copier and replenishing consumables, you can improve
the overall performance of your system by doing the following:
• Check job ticket information carefully before printing.
Print jobs with the same output and paper specifications together, to minimize
paper changes. Also, print routine jobs while you prepare to print jobs with special
instructions or special media.
• Reduce unnecessary server connections to Command WorkStation.
If you use a second or third Fiery EX2101 on an occasional basis, you can improve
performance by logging off when those systems are not in use.
• Avoid printing with the Fiery EX2101 “Disk full” warning.
If you see this warning, delete jobs that are not likely to be reused. Avoid this
condition by deleting old jobs on a regular basis. The date associated with a job
is the original date it was sent.
Troubleshooting
This section provides troubleshooting guidelines. If you are unable to resolve a
problem after referring to this section, contact your site operator or administrator.
Also, make sure there are no applications installed on the Fiery EX2101, with the
exception of the Fiery EX2101 utilities from the User Software CD. Applications other
than the Fiery EX2101 utilities are not supported and can cause system problems.

Troubleshooting
General printing problems
If this happens
Try this
You cannot select or view
one of the queues.
•
Request that your system administrator enable the queue in Setup.
You cannot connect to
the Fiery EX2101 from a
Windows computer with
Command WorkStation or
the Fiery utilities.
•
Make sure the connection is configured correctly.
Printing seems to take
too long.
•
One or more Media Type
options are dimmed.
•
For instructions, see the User Software Installation Guide.
Print to a queue instead of to the Direct connection.
When you print to a queue, the job is stored on the Fiery EX2101 until it can be
processed and printed; when you print to the Direct connection, the job cannot be sent
to the Fiery EX2101 until the previous job is finished processing, so you must wait
longer to use your computer.
Select a Paper Source that supports the Media Type you are using.
For information on requirements and constraints pertaining to special papers and
transparencies, see Appendix A.
C
C-3
Troubleshooting
If this happens
The Fiery EX2101 does not
respond to a Print command.
Try this
•
Make sure the copier was not disconnected.
If the administrator or operator has selected Suspend Printing on the Fiery EX2101
Control Panel or Command WorkStation to interrupt printing, your print job will not
resume until someone selects Resume Printing from the Functions menu on the
Control Panel or clicks the function key on Command WorkStation.
•
Make sure the Fiery EX2101 is selected as the current copier.
Before printing, you must select the Fiery EX2101 as the current printer from your
Windows computer, Mac OS computer, or UNIX workstation.
•
Make sure the copier is switched on.
Someone may have turned the copier off, or the Power Saver mode function may have
engaged. Even with the copier off, the Fiery EX2101 appears in the Chooser as long as
the Fiery EX2101 itself is turned on.
•
If you are printing over an IPX (Novell) network, verify through the PCONSOLE utility
that the job was sent to the Novell queue and that the queue is being used by the
Fiery EX2101.
•
Make sure the job does not contain a PostScript error.
Contact the operator, or use Fiery WebSpooler/Fiery Spooler to check job status.
In Fiery WebSpooler/Fiery Spooler, a job containing a PostScript error appears in red.
To obtain information on the PostScript error, make sure the Print to PS Error option
is set to Yes in Fiery EX2101 Setup. For more information, see the Configuration Guide.
Message requests a paper size
that you don’t have.
•
Cancel the job and do one of the following:
If you are printing a PostScript file, ask the administrator to set the Convert Paper Sizes
setting in Printer Setup to convert the job to a paper size you do have. You can do this
to convert between US and metric paper sizes.
If you are printing a file from an application, change the page size in the Page Setup
dialog box.
You cannot print with
QuarkXPress 3.32 using the
PSPrinter 8.7.2 driver on a
Mac OS computer.
•
Remove the file called Balloon Help from your QuarkXPress application folder and
restart QuarkXPress.

Troubleshooting
Problems with print quality
If this happens
Try this
Print settings for your job
output do not match the
settings you gave.
•
You get poor printing results.
•
Make sure you did not override the settings for the job in another place.
For information about options and overrides, see Appendix A.
Check if your application requires one of the Fiery EX2101’s printer description files.
Your application may require the Fiery EX2101 PPD. If you print from Adobe
PageMaker, make sure the Fiery EX2101 PPD is installed correctly. For information
about installing this file, see the User Software Installation Guide.
Your printed file appears
too dark.
•
QuickDraw fill patterns print
as solids.
•
Adjust the Brightness option.
You can use the Brightness option when printing from an application or from Fiery
Downloader to lighten your image whenever you print a PostScript or Encapsulated
PostScript (EPS) file.
Use the Adobe PostScript Printer driver (or the Apple LaserWriter 8.3 or later
printer driver).

Troubleshooting
Problems with Fiery Downloader
If this happens
General problems.
Try this
•
Make sure you are using the latest version.
If you are updating your Fiery EX2101 to new system software, delete the previous
version of Fiery Downloader from your Windows or Mac OS computer and install the
latest version to ensure full compatibility.
•
Make sure the connection is configured correctly.
For instructions, see the User Software Installation Guide.
You cannot print an EPS file
using Fiery Downloader.
•
Try printing using the ‘showpage’ after EPS files (Windows) or ‘showpage’ (Mac OS)
option in the Download PostScript File dialog box.
This option adds a showpage PostScript language command at the end of the print
job. Certain applications omit this necessary command when they generate EPS files.
You must select the Append Showpage option when printing EPS files generated by
these applications.
If you continue having difficulties printing an EPS file with Fiery Downloader, try
printing the file from the application in which it was created.
•
Make sure the EPS file was saved without a preview image header.
Preview image headers are useful when images are placed in documents with page
layout applications, but they cause problems when images are downloaded directly.
•
Make sure the job does not contain a PostScript error.
Contact the operator or use Command WorkStation, Fiery WebSpooler or Fiery
Spooler to check the job’s status. Jobs with a PostScript error appear with an Error icon.
You have problems
downloading a font with
Fiery Downloader.
•
An extra blank page prints
after a Fiery Downloader job.
•
Check with the administrator to make sure that the Direct connection is enabled.
The Direct connection must be used to download fonts.
Turn off the ‘showpage’ after EPS files (Windows) or ‘showpage’ (Mac OS) option.
This option adds a special PostScript command that will cause an extra blank page to
print if it is not necessary.
Problems with Fiery WebTools
If this happens
General problems.
Try this
•
Clear the cache (Netscape Communicator) or history (Microsoft Internet Explorer).
