Menu Functions
Before You Start Using This Machine

This section describes the menu functions and how to access them with the touch
panel display.
What Are Menu Functions?
The machine lets you specify settings, such as the number of copies and the paper
size, to use when it receives a print job. These types of settings can be specified by
the application sending the print job, or by the printer driver.
You can specify many settings which affect the printer function of the machine.
These include some settings that cannot be specified remotely from an application
or from the printer driver. These settings are referred to as "Menu Functions."
The menu functions are set using the keys on the touch panel display and are
grouped together according to the type of settings, which makes them easy to set.
When the same menu function setting can be specified by using the keys on the
machine or by specifying the setting in an application or the printer driver, the
setting from the application or printer driver has priority. These settings will override
the settings made on the machine.

The printer driver is included on the CD-ROM provided with the machine. For
instructions on installing the printer driver, see Chapter 2, "Installing Software," in
the Network Quick Start Guide.
NOTE
The contents of the Printer Settings are stored in the nonvolatile memory of the machine.
This means that the settings are stored even if the power to the machine is switched OFF,
and therefore the settings will still be available when the power is switched ON again.

Job Securing Time
1 hour*, 2 hours, 3 hours, 6 hours, 12 hours, and 24 hours
When a secured print job is sent to the machine, it is stored on the machine's hard
disk, and a password must be entered before the job can be printed. This setting
specifies how long the job will be stored before it is automatically canceled.
Timeout
Timeout (5 to 300 seconds), Off; 15* seconds
When the Personality is set to 'Auto', the machine detects the control commands
and starts printing in the appropriate mode. After all the data has been received
and the end of the data is detected, the print mode stops. This processing of print
data is called a job.
If the data for a job does not end, the machine does not start the next job even if it
receives other print commands. In cases like this, use the Timeout setting to force
jobs to finish if no data is received during the set period of time.
If Timeout is 'On', jobs can finish automatically. For example, if print data still
remains in the machine because a form feed command cannot be processed, the
paper can be fed automatically.
If Timeout is 'Off', jobs will not end automatically.
IMPORTANT
• If this function is set so that a job will timeout, the machine may end a print job
before all the data has been received if it takes a long time for the PC to send the
data. If this occurs, adjust the length of the Timeout setting.
• If [Off] is selected, you will not be able to make copies until print jobs that use the
staple sort and punch settings have been completed.
• If you send data from a printer driver not compatible with the machine, and the end
of job command is not received within the time set in this setting, the machine
cancels the job, which may cause the data to be printed incorrectly.
NOTE
When a job is being processed, the Processing/Data Indicator on the control panel
flashes.

Print After Completing RIP

Sets whether to use the Print After Completing RIP function.
RIP is Raster Image Processor, used for advanced graphical representation.
If Print After Completing RIP is enabled, the first page is printed after all the pages
in the job have been processed.
Although it may take longer to print the first page, the remaining pages in the job
will be printed more quickly. This is useful when several people are using the
machine or when using another function, such as the Copy function, because the
printing time for a print job is reduced.

• This function can only be selected if the Finisher-Q1 or Saddle Finisher-Q2 is
attached to the Puncher Unit-M1.
• Acceptable paper sizes for this option are 11" x 17", LGL, LTR, LTRR, A3, B4, A4,
A4R, B5, and B5R.
• Make sure to select compatible settings when using Staple Sort and Punch
simultaneously. If conflicting settings are selected, such as the staple setting for the
right side of the paper and the punch setting for the left, the printer will use neither
Staple Sort nor Punch.
• The machine automatically detects the size of the paper and punches two or three
holes accordingly. (A3, A4, 11" x 17", and Letter papers are punched with three
holes.)
• Holes cannot be punched in Transparency, Pre-punched, Tracing paper, Envelope,
and Labels.
Personality
Auto*, PS, and PCL
This setting enables the machine to process data received from the host computer
in the specified data format. Setting the Personality to 'Auto' makes the machine
determine the type of data received from the host on a job-by-job basis. If you are
printing from applications on a computer, we recommend that you use the 'Auto'
setting.

Color Mode
Auto Detect*, Full Color, and Black and White
This setting enables you to set the color mode you want to specify when printing.
If [Auto Detect] or [Full Color] is selected, the machine automatically detects
whether the page is reproduced using black (K) only or all 4 colors: cyan (C),
magenta (M), yellow (Y), and black (K).
NOTE
• If different color data is overlaid, the machine may not distinguish color from
monochrome, even if [Auto Detect] or [Full Color] is selected. For example,
although the printout looks monochrome, if different color data is overlaid, it is
printed in full color mode, thereby using the color toner cartridges to print, not the
black toner cartridge. Furthermore, if the data is created as color data in the
application you are using, it is printed in full color mode, even though the data looks
monochrome.
• If [None] is selected for the RGB Source Profile, and the machine receives a
device-dependent color space definition that is color-processed by the host
computer, gray data with the equivalent ratio of R to G to B is printed using black
(K) only.

Halftones
Text: Resolution, Gradation, and Error Diffusion*
Graphics: Resolution, Gradation*, and Error Diffusion
Image: Resolution, Gradation*, and Error Diffusion
This setting specifies how you print halftones.
If [Resolution] is selected, a dither pattern that gives priority to the resolution of
the images is used. This helps eliminate the appearance of jagged or uneven lines
along the edges of objects and is best for printing standard text and graphics.
If [Gradation] is selected, a dither pattern that gives priority to the appearance of
smooth changes in tone is used. This is best for reproducing images with delicate
gradations or changes of tone.
If [Error Diffusion] is selected, an error diffusion method that gives priority to
printing fine lines or text is used. This is best for printing images with small text or
very fine lines.

Halftoning is used to print each process color at a different intensity, allowing
millions of different color to be reproduced using only the four process colors.
Depending on the required intensity of a given color, toner is placed on paper in
dots of different sizes. The grid of dots used for each toner color is called a screen.
Halftone screens are aligned to unique angles designed to eliminate interference
patterns called moiré (a shimmering, wavy effect) that can arise with halftoning.
Compressed Image Output
Output*, Display Error
This setting enables you to specify how the data should be treated if the data size
of the print job is too large to be stored in the machine's internal memory.
If [Output] is selected, the data is highly compressed (so it is able to stored in the
internal memory), and then the job is printed. However, the print quality may
diminish.
2
Printer Settings Menu
If [Display Error] is selected, the job is canceled when the data size is too large.
NOTE
• Even if [Output] is selected and the data is highly compressed, the data may still be
too large to be stored in the machine's internal memory. In this case, the job is
canceled and an error is logged in the Print Log. (See Chapter 5, "Checking Job

NOTE
• Device-independent colors are not dependent on any particular device, such as a
monitor, and are meant to be true representations of colors as perceived by the
human eye. These color representations, called device-independent color spaces,
result from work carried out by the Commission Internationale d'Eclairage (CIE)
and for that reason are also called CIE-based color spaces.
• For more information on obtaining the NetSpot Resource Downloader, consult your
local authorized Canon dealer.
• If a profile with the name of "None" is downloaded to the machine, the profile is not
applied and the [None] setting on the menu is applied.

■ Pure Black Text
On*, Off
This setting affects the printout for black text on a page. Under most
circumstances it is preferable to leave this option set to 'On'.
If [On] is selected, black colors generated by applications are printed using only
100% black toner. This means that black text will not exhibit halftone patterns
(such as moiré patterns), and the color toner will not be misaligned since only one
toner color (black) is used. It also eliminates color bleed (the unintended
overlaying or blending of two adjacent colors when text is printed).

This function is not available if Pure Black Text is set to 'Off'.
■ Brightness
85 to 115%; 100%*
This setting adjusts the brightness of the overall image. The settings can be set
between 85% and 115% in increments of 5%.
Selecting [85%] makes the image brighter, and selecting [115%] makes it darker.
NOTE
This function is not available if the Toner Save option is set to 'On'.
PCL/PS Settings

Printer Settings Menu
If [On] is selected, you can overprint black text. When this setting is used in
combination with the Pure Black Text option, the machine first prints the full color
background, then lays the black text on the top of the color background as 100% K
(black) toner. The result is a darker and glossier appearance for the black text.
Overprinting also minimizes the misalignment of colors and the halo effect that
can appear around the edge of objects in the printed image.

Some Basic Facts about Fonts
This section summarizes some of the basic facts you should know about fonts.
What Is a Font?
A font is a collection of letters and symbols used when printing a document. In
general, a group of letters and symbols sharing a common design is referred to as
a font. A font consists of the letters A to Z in both upper and lowercase, digits, and
symbols.
The design that distinguishes one font from another is referred to as a "typeface."
Each font has a typeface name, such as Courier, CG Times, Letter Gothic, etc.
Appendix
5
Attributes of Fonts
All fonts share some common characteristics, which are called "attributes." The
typeface is one such attribute. The letters and symbols that are actually printed are
determined by the values of a collection of these attributes.
Typeface
The design of the letters (for example, Courier, CG Times, Letter, or
Gothic).
Stroke Weight
The thickness of the lines with which the letters are drawn (e.g. bold,
medium, or light).
Style
Whether the letters are drawn straight or at an angle (e.g. upright or
italic).
Point Size
Height of the letters (e.g. 10 point or 5 point).
Pitch (cpi)
Number of characters that are printed in one inch (e.g. 10 cpi, 12 cpi, or
Scale).
Character Width Indicates whether the character width is set to "Fixed" or "Proportional."
(Fixed/PS)
5-2
Orientation
Orientation of the characters on a page ("Portrait" or "Landscape").
Symbol Set
The rule that defines the correspondence between the character codes
coming from the host computer, and the letter forms that appear on the
page (for example, Roman-8).
Some Basic Facts about Fonts
Typeface
Typeface refers to the design of the characters and symbols. The following figure
shows an example of some typefaces.
Stroke Weight
5
Appendix
Stroke weight refers to the thickness of the print. There are light, medium, and bold
stroke weights. The printer function has medium and bold fonts available. The figure
below shows an example of medium and bold printing.
Style
Style refers to the shape of the characters. The printer function can print in two
styles: upright and italic.
With some fonts, like Letter Gothic, the term "Oblique" is used in the same manner
as italics.
Some Basic Facts about Fonts
5-3
Point Size
Point size refers to the height of the character. Character size is measured in points.
One inch is divided into 72 points and 1 point is 1/72 of an inch (about 0.35 mm).
The printer function has bitmapped fonts and scalable fonts available. The
bitmapped fonts are fixed in size, but the scalable fonts are not fixed in size.
Scalable fonts are freely scalable to any size you wish in 0.1 point increments. The
following figure shows an example of various point sizes.
Appendix
5
NOTE
See "Fonts and Scalable Fonts," on p. 5-6, for more information on bitmapped fonts and
scalable fonts.
Pitch (cpi)
Pitch refers to the number of characters that are printed in one inch. The unit is cpi
(characters per inch). As the number of characters per inch increases, the space
between characters decreases; as the cpi decreases, the space between
characters increases.
5-4
Some Basic Facts about Fonts
Character Width (Fixed and PS)
Each character has a different width from all the other characters in a font at a given
point size. For example, "W" is a wider letter than "I." There are two ways to print
letters of different widths: you can print all letters with the same spacing, regardless
of their actual width; or you can change the spacing between letters to
accommodate these different widths. Printing all letters with the same spacing is
called "Fixed spacing," while changing the spacing to accommodate different letter
widths is called "Proportional spacing."
Because the Fixed spacing method prints all letters with the same spacing, the
number of characters which will fit into a given length is a fixed quantity which can
be specified.
If the characters are printed with Proportional spacing, then the number of
characters that will fit into an inch varies depending on the letters printed.

Orientation
Orientation refers to the direction of printing. The printer function can print using
two different paper orientations: portrait and landscape. With portrait orientation,
text is printed across the width of the paper (short edge), and with landscape
orientation, text is printed across the length of the paper (long edge).

Symbol Set
When you print the letter "A," the host computer sends a code corresponding to "A"
(hexadecimal 41 is an example of this) to the machine. This code is referred to as
the character code. The machine stores an internal representation of each
character, and selects from among these character patterns the pattern
corresponding to the received code. In this case, the machine searches for the
pattern for "A," and prints it.
■ The process by which letters are printed

Computer
Machine
Character
Patterns
The machine uses a fixed rule to decide which letter or symbol corresponds to the
character code sent from the host computer. For example, the letter "A" is printed for the
hexadecimal code "41." The rule which determines the correspondence between
character codes and printed letters is called the "symbol set."
Fonts and Scalable Fonts
There are two types of fonts available, and these fonts are distinguished by the type
of data from which they are formed.
• Bitmapped
fonts
• Scalable fonts
Bitmapped Fonts
Each character of bitmapped fonts are composed of a grid of small dots and stored
in the machine's memory in dot matrix format.
5-6
Some Basic Facts about Fonts
Bitmapped fonts are fixed in size and specified by characteristics called "attributes,"
such as typeface, stroke weight, style and so on. Various types of bitmapped fonts
are produced by the combination of these attributes.
Appendix

Scalable Fonts
With scalable fonts, characters are freely enlarged or compressed from the one
point to any size you wish in 0.1 point increments.
Some Basic Facts about Fonts
5-7
Standard Scalable Fonts (PCL)
With scalable fonts, characters are freely enlarged or compressed from one point to
any size you wish in 0.1 point increments. (The maximum range of scaling depends
on the size of the memory installed in the machine and the size of the paper used.)
The following scalable typefaces are included with the machine.
