Terminology used in this manual
◆ Print controller
Prepare a computer to be used as a RIP, install the supplied system software, and connect the included USB dongle to the computer. The computer in such conditions is called “print controller”.
Your dealer or authorized service representative will install and set up the system software on the RIP computer.
◆ Job
The original data sent from the computer is not directly sent to the printer but temporarily stored in the print controller. The data in this status is called a “job”.
◆ Queue
The jobs stored in the print controller are lined up in a “window” for executing print processing. Various settings on
how to process the stored jobs can be registered in this “window” in advance. This “window” is called a “queue”.
◆ Log in
To create your own jobs, a login ID and password are required. The act of inputting such information in order to
access network and device is called “login”.
◆ RIP
“RIP” stands for “Raster Image Processor”. The input data is converted into the bit map data through this "RIP"
process.
◆ Computer/Personal computer
The “computer” or “personal computer” is a computer that has the user software (printer driver or utility software)
installed. From this personal computer, you can send the data to the print controller via network. The RISO Console and utility software can be operated from the personal computer.
Procedures and images used in this manual
• The procedures, screen shots, and illustrations in this manual assume that a ComColor GD Series printer is connected.
• The screen shots and illustrations in this manual may differ depending on your environment, such as printer model
used and the installation status of optional equipment.

Creep compensation
When creating a booklet, the edges of outer and inner sheets of bound paper (the fore edges) do not align neatly due
to the thickness of the paper. Cutting the paper in this state results in inner sheets that have smaller margins from
their edges. Adjusting the binding margin becomes necessary as the number of pages increases.
“Creep compensation” mode moves the binding margin in the direction of the binding for inner pages in relation to the
value you specify.
Note:
• With this mode for binding already-printed paper, when you set the outer page as a baseline and cut the page fore
edges, the fore edge margin amounts align neatly.
Settings
Creep compensation: 0.00 to 2.00 mm (3/32") (adjustments can be made in units of 0.01 mm (0.0004") per page)
Determining the creep compensation value
1) Prepare the number of pages needed for printing; this number equals the total number of pages in your print

data.
Fold the pages you prepared in two, and using the outer page as a baseline, cut the paper so that the fore edges
align.
Open the folded pages, and measure the lengths of the outermost page and innermost page. The inner page will
be shorter in relation to the amount of pages you cut. Use this difference for the “full book compensation amount”.
Divide the value from step 3 by the number of pages. This is the value for “Creep compensation value”.

Rendering intent
If the color management is used for differing color spaces, a color conversion method is used for reproducing colors.
This method is called “Rendering intent”.
What is Color Management?
While in displays such as monitors, colors are expressed with “additive primary colors” (RGB: red, green, and blue),
in the ink printers, colors are expressed with “subtractive primaries” (CMY: cyan, magenta, and yellow). Since the
number of colors that can be expressed with CMY is smaller than those with RGB, colors on a monitor cannot be
reproduced exactly by a printer. For natural reproduction of colors and tones, some conversion technique from RGB
to CMY is required. This color conversion system is called color management. The rules of conversion vary with the
manufacturer, and each manufacturer uses its original conversion table (color profile).
In color management of ComColorExpress RS1100C, some kinds of color profiles can be selected according to the
combination of the original image and the paper type to be used in order to reproduce the optimum colors.
Color 95
Printer Driver
Settings
• Relative colorimetric
Relative colorimetric rendering compares the white point of the source and the white point of the target. According
to the difference between the white points above, all colors are converted. Out-of-gamut colors are converted to
the closest reproducible color in the destination color space. Using this setting can keep a larger amount of original
colors of the images than using “Perceptual”.
• Absolute colorimetric
Absolute colorimetric rendering reproduces in-gamut colors exactly, but clips out-of-gamut colors. This setting is
particularly effective to preview what type of effect the sheet color will give the printed colors.
• Perceptual
Perceptual rendering preserves the relationship between colors, which helps preserve the overall appearance of
images. This setting is effective when image data contains many out-of-gamut colors that cannot be printed, and
is excellent for photo images.
• Saturation
Saturation rendering reproduces vivid colors in images. This setting is optimal for reproducing the graphics that
require bright colors, such as graphs and charts.

Queues
There are two types of queues - Normal and Hold. Two types of queues - “Normal” and “Hold” - are prepared for the
print controller in advance. An arbitrary queue can be added by the administrator (Custom Queue).
◆ Normal queue:
This queue is for actually printing or storing jobs as archive jobs. The jobs sent to this queue from the computer
are processed in chronological order.
◆ Hold queue:
This queue is for storing jobs. The jobs sent to this queue from the computer are stored in the print controller. To
process jobs stored in the Hold queue, give commands such as printing a job, using the RISO Console.
Storing original data that are frequently used or shared documents in the Hold queue enables to print them without
opening the application and giving the command to print for every job from the RISO Console screen.
Important!:
• We are not liable for data loss or damage on the internal hard disk drive of the print controller resulting from the use
of this software.
• You can backup the setting information and job data saved on print controller via administrator settings.
For details, see “Backup” p.172.
Note:
• “Normal” and “Hold” queues are pre-registered at the factory. These queues cannot be deleted. Moreover, the following settings can be changed.
– Normal: Queue code, priority, direct port, prechecking setting
– Hold: Queue code, prechecking setting
• The administrator can register various settings for processing jobs sent from the computer in the print controller as
a Custom Queue. p.192
By registering frequently used print settings as a Custom Queue, jobs can be printed using the saved settings by
sending the data to the Custom Queue.
124 Queues
Other Operations of the RISO Console
How to Use the Custom Queue
When the administrator registers print settings for each document as custom queues, you can omit the need to configure the same settings using the printer driver each time you print a document.
The basic procedure for printing using the custom queue is as follows.
1) Create a new custom queue.
For details, see “Creating New Queues [New queue]” p.192.
2) Edit the custom queue settings.

This describes how to handle problems about the utility software and the printer driver.
Problems When Installing and Connecting
Problem
Cause and Solution
Cannot install the printer driver.
The IP address for the print controller has not been set.
As for the IP address assigned for the print controller, confirm with the
network administrator.
Cannot print from a computer.
• The print controller is not running.
Press the power switch on the print controller to turn it on.
• The print controller and printer are not connected correctly.
Check that the printer is connected to the print controller with the LAN
cable.
• The IP address used to connect to the network and the IP address used to
connect to the printer are the same.
The print controller may have the following IP address settings:
• An IP address that is used to connect the print controller to the network
• An IP address that is used to connect the print controller to the printer
• An IP address that is used to connect Windows to the network
If these addresses are duplicate, a connection failure may occur
From the [Communication Settings] screen of the RISO Console, confirm
that the IP address set for [IP address] (the address used to connect the print
controller to the network) and the IP address for [Engine IP Configuration]
are not the same; if they are the same, change one of the settings.
For details, see “Communication settings” p.161.

Problems When Printing
Problem
Cause and Solution
• Printing takes time.
• Printing cannot be done with the
print conditions that have been
set.
A checkmark is in [Collate] in the application software [Print] dialog box.
Remove the checkmark from [Collate] in the application software [Print]
dialog box.
For Macintosh users:
A checkmark is in [Collated] in the application software [Print] dialog box.
Remove the checkmark from [Collated] in the application software [Print]
dialog box.
• Printing takes time.
• Printing cannot be done with the
print conditions that have been
set.
Imposition order differs from the
intended order.
The original data and printer driver [Orientation] do not match.
Set [Orientation] for the original data created by the application software
and [Orientation] in the printer driver screen to the same orientation.
When printing a multi-page original,
there are pages that are not of the
correct size.
There are multiple paper sizes in one set of original data.
When the original data containing multiple paper sizes are printed, all pages
are printed in the paper size for the first page. Therefore, the pages that differ
from the paper size for the first page may not print properly and loose a part
of images. Select [Mixed output size] in the printer driver.
If a multi-page (sheet) original is
printed from Excel with collation, it
is collated by page (sheet).
When the original was created, the printer driver was not set to RS1100CXXXX (printer name).
When creating a multi-page (sheet) original, select RS1100C-XXXX (printer
name) in advance. The Paper Size and the output settings for the first page
are applied for the remaining pages. When a multi-page (sheet) original is
created with another printer driver selected, set [Print quality] to “300 dpi”
for all pages (sheets) in the [Page Setup] screen of the application software
(such as Excel).
Images are not rotated.
When printing landscape original data from Acrobat® or Acrobat Reader®,
place a checkmark in [Choose paper source by PDF page size] in the print
dialog box.
Images are not enlarged or
reduced.
[Page Scaling] is set in the [Print] dialog box.
Set [None] in [Page Scaling] in the [Print] dialog box in Acrobat or Acrobat
Reader. Set [Zoom] in the [Layout] screen of the printer driver.
Printed size is different from the
specified size.
The paper size for the original data and the output paper size in the printer
driver do not match.
Always match the original data paper size created in the application software
and [Output size] in the [Layout] screen of the printer driver.
Can not print with the [direct]
queue.
Do not use the [direct] queue for printing. Select this queue when you install
the printer fonts.
Tip:
The items that can be set will vary according to your operating system and application software. Also refer to the
Read Me file.
Troubleshooting 205
Appendix
Other Problems
Problem
Cause and Solution
• Printing is not in normal page
order.
• More copies were output than
those are set.
A checkmark is in [Collate] in the application software [Print] dialog box.
Remove the checkmark from [Collate] in the application software [Print]
dialog box.
Even though output volume
(number of sheets) was set, only
one copy (sheet) is printed.
[Print and pause] printing is set.
Printing pauses after one sheet is printed because [Print and pause] is set
in the [Workflow] screen of the printer driver. When you want to continue
printing, press the Start button on the operating panel.
Part of the printout is missing.
[Output size] in the printer driver screen does not match the “Paper size” set
in the printer.
Make the [Output size] setting in the printer driver screen and the [Paper
size] setting set in the printer the same.
An inappropriate scaling is specified for enlargement / reduction.
The Zoom specification in the [Layout] screen of the printer driver is not
correct. Specify the correct scale.
“Zoom” p.42
Lack of the original margin.
Depending on the setting of [Imposition] or [Zoom], if the original margin is
smaller than print range of the printer, a part of the original cannot be printed.
Adjust the original margin.
The points of staples come out of
the top page.
[Simplex Print Speed Priority] is set.
A checkmark is in [Simplex Print Speed Priority] in the printer driver
[Finishing] dialog box. Pages are output face-up and then stapled in order to
prioritize speed. Remove the checkmark from [Simplex Print Speed
Priority], and manually set the [Output face] back to [Face down] in order
to prioritize presentation.
Even though the tray selection for
certain pages was set, paper is
loaded from a different tray.
If the original uses the [Prepend] and [Append] functions via the forms
function, the original page number and the printed page number differ.
Specify the page range for [Tray selection per page] using the page
number that results after using the forms function.
The RISO Console does not start.
• The “RIP Name” or “IP address” has not been correctly entered into the
URL input area.
Check with the administrator, and enter the correct “RIP name” or “IP
address”.
• The OS of the computer for the print controller is in hibernate / sleep mode.
The system software will not start. Check the status of the print controller.
The print results are different from
the settings in the printer driver.
In the queue of the print controller through which original data has been sent,
the “Queue priority” is set to “on”.
When you want to prioritize the settings of the printer driver, either change the
processing settings of the queue (administrator setting) or select a different
queue before executing the print operation. “[General] Screen” p.195,
“Queue selection” p.90
The job you have sent cannot be
cancelled, deleted, or edited in the
job manager.
The job manager has been used without logging in or was logged into with an
ID that is different from the owner of the job.
Log in with the correct ID.
Printer status is not displayed
properly in the RISO Console.
The performance of the printer and print controller is unstable.
Turn off the printer and any peripheral devices, then turn them on again.
