the uninstallation fails.
Solution: Restart the PC and uninstall the KX DRIVER.

document is printed when both mixed paper sizes and duplex is

KYOCERA Document Solutions Europe B.V.
6. Issue: Interactive services dialog detection messages pop-up when
printing mixed sized documents in booklet mode on the 64-bit version
of Vista.

printed in Poster mode for 3x3 pages or more. This is a known
limitation in Microsoft PowerPoint 2007.
8. Issue: EMF (enhanced metafile) spooling is not available for KPDL
printing.
9. Issue: Watermarks are not supported for 64-bit RAW mode. When
printing from Adobe applications such as Acrobat Reader in KPDL
pass through mode, watermarks will not print.
10. Issue: Smart duplex printing is not supported in booklet mode.
11. Issue: Print Preview is not supported for KPDL pass through mode
with applications like Adobe Acrobat.
12. Issue: While Print Preview dialog is active for one document, all other
open documents of the same application cannot be accessed. This is
a known limitation in Windows.
Solution: Close the Print Preview dialog to access the other open
documents.
13. Issue: Grid lines may appear on some images in Print Preview
because of moiré effects. However it will not affect to the output.
14. Issue: Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 does not print the number of

15. Issue: In some cases, alternative driver cannot be deleted by
Uninstaller.
KYOCERA Document Solutions Europe B.V.
16. Issue: In some cases, the driver policy is not reflected for Microsoft
Outlook printing. Because Microsoft Outlook 2003 uses Microsoft
Word 2003 module to edit emails, checkbox of "Use Microsoft Word
2003" need to be unchecked in the optional settings.
17. Issue: An error message appears when printing from KX DRIVER
for Universal Printing (UPD) in a Citrix environment. This occurs when
the UPD on the client side cannot communicate with the printer to
acquire device information, because the port name on the client side is
converted to TCP XXX on the Terminal Services side.
Solution: One possible workaround when using Terminal Services
with Windows Server 2008, 2008 R2 and 2012 is to use the Easy Print
feature. With Easy Print, user interface and print job processing is
passed on to the printer driver on the client system without the need to
install drivers on the Terminal Server, and thus port information is
available and UPD printing can proceed. More information on
Terminal Services Easy Print can be found on the Microsoft website at
this link: http://technet.microsoft.com/enus/library/cc753853%28v=ws.10%29.aspx
18. Issue: KPDL Pass-through mode does not work when PDL is
changed from within an application.
Solution: Close the application, change the PDL mode in the Device
Settings tab, then reopen the application
19. Issue: Lower panel will not be displayed when Y screen resolution is
less than 864.

image file has large dimensions (4960x7014 or 6365x9500 pixels, for
example).
