About This Driver
About This Driver
This is a generic printer driver that supports various devices. You can use the same driver for all printer models
by changing the settings for the printing port and device information.
Features
● Information regarding the functions and options of the device are collectively defined in a "configuration
profile." By switching "configuration profiles," you can switch the driver settings screen to match the
functions of the device.
● You do not need to reinstall the driver when you add or replace a device.
Utilizing Configuration Profiles
Configuration profiles corresponding to each printer model have been prepared beforehand. You can
customize and use a configuration profile corresponding to your printer operation management.
By applying a configuration profile to the driver, the settings in the [Device Settings] sheet can be changed and
the functions specific to the device can be set. You can also export and save the function and option settings for
the device in the [Device Settings] sheet as a configuration profile.
Examples of How to Utilize Configuration Profiles
● Making a driver settings screen for the printer model you are using
When you can acquire the printer model information from the device, a configuration profile is applied
automatically and the settings screen changes to match the device. When you cannot acquire the information,
apply a configuration profile manually.
● Efficiently configuring driver settings for multiple computers
You can export and save the device function and options settings of the [Device Settings] sheet as a
configuration profile. The device information of drivers used in other computers can be easily batch set by
importing the exported configuration profile.
If you cannot acquire the device information, you can apply it by importing a configuration profile exported in
an environment where the information could be acquired.

Before Use
Before Use
● When using this driver, the following restrictions apply.
- In order to set and print with the functions supported by the printer model you are using, you need to set
a configuration profile suitable for the printer model and set the option status of the device. You can
configure these settings in the [Device Settings] sheet.
- If you set functions that are not supported by this driver on the control panel of the device you are using,
those functions are enabled when printing.
● The newest driver software is posted on the Canon web site. Please verify the operating environment etc.
and download the appropriate software as required.
Canon Global Site: https://global.canon/
● The functions that you can use may vary according to the following conditions.
- The device you are using and its settings
- The firmware version of the device
- The option structure of the device
- The driver you are using
- The driver version
- The computer environment you are using
● When printing from a Windows Store app, because you cannot display the print settings screen of the driver,
the number of functions you can set is limited.
● The screen content, procedures, etc. displayed and described in the manual may differ from those actually
displayed.
● In this manual, examples using Windows 10 are explained.

prevents non-aligned color toner from being printed around the black text.
131
Settings List
[Black Overprint]
Prints black text over the top of color backgrounds. When set together with [Pure Black Text], color
backgrounds are all printed in color, after which the black text is printed overlapping the backgrounds,
preventing unprinted white paper appearing at the edges of the text.
[Combine Color Separations]
Combines color-separated CMYK data into one set of data when printing.
[Composite Overprint]
Overprints CMYK data in its composite output form. Since all of the colors used in the data set are overprinted
on one plate, you can confirm the finished result without separating the colors.
[Spot Color Matching]

IMPORTANT
● If you set a paper source that is not installed in the device, paper will be supplied from the device's priority
paper source.
● If the paper source you have specified and the paper size/type do not match, an error will occur.
● If you specify [Finishing Settings] (2-sided printing, stapling, etc.) functions for a device that does not have
those functions, printing will be performed without those functions. For example, if you specify 2-sided
printing for a device that does not support 2-sided printing, the data will be printed on one side of the paper.
● If you select [Store] from [Output Method] when printing from a device that does not support box storage,
the data will be printed normally. If an error is displayed on the touch panel display of the device and the
device goes offline, the data is printed when the device goes online again.
● If you set the department ID management function or the user authentication function when printing for a
device that does not have those functions, an error will occur.
● If you enable [Perform Processing with Print Processor] in the [Other Settings] sheet of the [Detailed

Troubleshooting
Driver settings cannot be set
Page size, orientation, paper selection settings are not valid
Cause
Depending on the application you are using, the settings corresponding to these in the application are
given priority over the driver settings.
Remedy
Configure these settings in the application.
The [Device Settings] and [Profile] sheets can be displayed, but settings are
unavailable
Cause
Your account does not have full control permission for the printer.
Remedy
Logon to the computer as a member of Administrators. Contact your system administrator for further
information.
The functions supported by the device are not displayed or cannot be set in
the [Device Settings] sheet
Cause
The appropriate configuration profile has not been set.
Remedy
Acquire the device information and set the configuration profile that matches the printer model you are using.
If device information cannot be acquired, manually set a configuration profile that matches the name of the
printer model.
If you cannot properly set items displayed in the [Device Settings] sheet even after applying a configuration
profile that matches the name of the printer model, you can apply the function and option information
corresponding to the device by setting a configuration profile type.

If the printing area on the page is not positioned correctly, or if part of the printed area is missing, check the
following.

Remedy
Change the settings in the [Basic Settings] or [Page Setup] sheet > [Manual Scaling] > [Scaling].
Cause 4.
The gutter setting is too large, so that there is not enough space on the page for the printout.
Remedy
Change the settings in the [Finishing] sheet > [Gutter].
Part of the printout does not match what you see on the screen
Cause
The application uses EMF format data which cannot be processed by page printers.
Remedy
In the [Finishing] sheet, click [Advanced Settings], and then select [On] from [EMF Spooling].
151
Troubleshooting
Settings are not reflected in the print results
Cause
Functions that cannot be enabled at the same time are set in the application and driver.
