Software
The type of printer installed on your system must be
identified for each software package. This is usually done
through a setup menu. If this printer is not listed in your
program, look in the printer User’s Manual for the next-best
model selection.
DIP Switch Settings
The default settings will usually work for most applications,
but they should be checked before using the printer This
will avoid unexpected results.
Cut - Sheet Feeder/
Single - Sheet Operation
The page length will have to be adjusted (shortened) to 61
lines per page if your software does not properly support
cut -sheet paper. There will be lines from the first page
printed at the top of the second page if the page length
IS
not set correctly.
