PRINT OPTIONS OVERVIEW
This chapter describes printer drivers and printer description (PPD/PDD) files, Fiery Color
Server print options, and locations for setting print options.
About printer drivers and printer description files
The Fiery Color Server receives files from computers on the network, processes (RIPs) the
files, and then sends them to the copier. Windows and Mac OS computers communicate with
the Fiery Color Server by means of a printer driver and PPD (PostScript Printer Description)
files. Windows computers can also communicate with the Fiery Color Server 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 Color Server 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 set, and then translates all information into Adobe PostScript or
PCL, languages 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 Color Server. 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
the PPD/PDD file and presents the information to you in the form of options you select in
the Print dialog box. The PPD/PDD file for the Fiery Color Server includes information
about the features of both the copier and the Fiery Color Server. For information about the
specific print options for the Fiery Color Server, see the table that begins on page 10.
About Print options
Print options give you access to the special features of your copier and Fiery Color Server.
Print options can be specified in several places—in Fiery Color Server Setup, or from the
printing application, ColorWise Pro Tools, Hot Folders, or Command WorkStation.
PRINT OPTIONS OVERVIEW
8
Print option override hierarchy
The override hierarchy is as follows:
• A user’s printer driver settings override the Fiery Color Server Setup and ColorWise Pro
Tools settings.
• Settings made to Hot Folders override the user’s printer driver settings.
• Settings made from Command WorkStation override the user’s printer driver settings.
Setting print options
• During Setup
Some settings are specified during Setup by the administrator. For information about the
current default server settings, contact the administrator or the operator.
• From applications
With the Adobe PostScript printer drivers, you can specify job settings when you print
a job.
For information about specifying job settings from Windows applications, see Printing
from Windows. For information about specifying job settings from Mac OS applications,
see Printing from Mac OS.
• From ColorWise Pro Tools
You can set the default CMYK Simulation Profile, CMYK Simulation Method, RGB
Source Profile, RGB Separation, Output Profile, Rendering Style, Spot Color Matching,
Black Text/Graphics, Black Overprint, and Print Gray Using Black Only settings from
ColorWise Pro Tools.
For more information about using ColorWise Pro Tools, see Color Printing.
• From Hot Folders
Assign a group of print options to a Hot Folder. When you specify print options for a
Hot Folder, the print options are assigned to all jobs sent through that Hot Folder.
These print options override any default options.
For more information, see Hot Folders Help.
• Overrides from Command WorkStation
To change job settings from Command WorkStation, double-click a job to display the
Properties dialog box.
For more information about using Command WorkStation, see Command WorkStation
Help.

PRINT OPTIONS
This chapter explains each print option, default setting, location of the print option in the
printer driver, and any constraints or requirements. It also provides additional detail about
specific print options, beginning on page 27.
Print options and 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 Color Server prints the job with the underlined
default setting.
The Printer driver location column lists where to find the print option in the Fiery Color
Server Windows 2000/XP printer driver. To locate the same panes in the Fiery Color Server
Mac OS X driver, select either ColorWise (for color print options and expert color settings) or
Printer Features, which allows you to select various panes (Job Info, Layout, Media, and so
on) from the Feature Sets sub-menu.
In the Fiery Color Server printer driver, the Basic pane allows you to customize the printer
driver using shortcuts (up to 16) for frequently used print options. To add shortcuts to the
Basic pane, select Customize (located in the upper-right corner), highlight the print option,
and choose Add or Remove. To reposition shortcuts on the Basic pane, highlight the print
option and select Move Up or Move Down.
For options that you configure in Command WorkStation, WebSetup, or ColorWise Pro
Tools, choosing Printer’s default results in the Fiery Color Server printing the job with the
setting you specified in Setup. For options that cannot be configured in Setup, the Fiery Color
Server prints the job with a preconfigured Printer’s default setting. For more information, see
the Requirements, constraints, and information column in the table.
To determine the current Setup defaults, print the Configuration page from Command
WorkStation. For information on printing a Configuration page, see Configuration and Setup.

stiffness of the media. The Auto Trapping feature provides you with advanced trapping
settings and gives you full control over their values. For more information, see Color Printing.

Image Shift
Image Shift allows you to specify how much the image on each page should be shifted, relative
to the X (horizontal) and Y (vertical) axes. Moving the job content in this manner enables you
to allow for various finishing options, such as stapling and binding. Image Shift prevents the
image from being clipped.
N OTE : This option is not available for PCL printing
N OTE : This option is effective only for jobs in which N-up layout is set to 1-up.
TO DEFINE IMAGE SHIFT FOR A PRINT JOB
1 In the printer driver, click the Image Shift print option bar.
2 Select the unit of measurement.
3 Type the Front and Back image shift settings in the X and Y axis fields. You can also use the
arrow buttons to shift the image settings.

Scale
The operator can specify a scaling override, but the override is applied to any scaling value
already set in the active job. For example, if a user sends a job with a scaling value of 50% and
the operator specifies a Scale override of 300%, the job is printed at 150% of the original
document size, that is, 50% of 300%.
Secure Print
The Secure Print feature offers a level of security for sensitive or confidential print jobs. This
feature allows you to print your job only when you are present at the copier. When using this
feature, enter a password into the Secure Print field in the printer driver (Job Info tab) before
sending your job to the Fiery Color Server. To print your Secure Print job, re-enter the
password at the Fiery Color Server copier touch panel as described in the following procedure.
