Using the Brother printer driver
2
A printer driver is software that translates data from the format used by a PC into the format needed by a
particular printer, using a printer command language or page description language.
The printer drivers are on the installer CD-ROM we have supplied. Install the drivers by following the Quick
Setup Guide. The latest printer drivers can also be downloaded from the Brother Solutions Center at:
http://solutions.brother.com/

Printing
Printing a document
2
When the machine receives data from your computer, it begins printing by picking up paper from the paper
tray. The paper tray can feed many types of paper and envelopes. (For information about the Paper Tray and
Recommended paper, see Basic User’s Guide.)
a
From your application, choose the Print command.
If any other printer drivers are installed on your computer, choose Brother MFC-XXXX* as your printer
driver from the Print or Print Settings menu in your software application, and then click OK to begin
printing.
*(Where XXXX is your model name.)
Note
• (Macintosh) See Features in the printer driver (Macintosh) uu page 94.
• You can choose the paper size and orientation in your application software.
If your application software does not support your custom paper size, choose the next largest paper size.
Then adjust the print area by changing the right and left margins in your application software.

Printing
Duplex (two-sided) printing
2
The supplied printer driver supports duplex printing.
2
Guidelines for printing on both sides of the paper
2
 If the paper is thin, it may wrinkle.
 If paper is curled, turn over the stack, straighten it and then put it back in the paper tray or manual feed slot.
 If the paper is not feeding properly, it may be curled. Remove the paper, straighten it and turn over the
stack.
 When you use the manual duplex function, it is possible that there may be paper jams or poor print quality.
If there is a paper jam, see Basic User’s Guide: Error and maintenance messages. If you have a print
quality problem, see Basic User’s Guide: Improving the print quality.
Manual duplex printing
2
The machine prints all the even-numbered pages on one side of the paper first. Then, the printer driver
instructs you (with a pop-up message) to reinsert the paper. Before reinserting the paper, straighten it well,
or you may get a paper jam. Very thin or thick paper is not recommended.
7
Printing
Simultaneous scanning, printing and faxing
2
Your machine can print from your computer while sending or receiving a fax in memory, or while scanning a
document into the computer. Fax sending will not be stopped during the computer printing. However, when
the machine is copying or receiving a fax on paper, it pauses the computer printing operation, and then
continues printing when copying or fax receiving has finished.
Note
Even if Toner Low or Toner Ended is displayed on the LCD, fax sending and scanning are available.

Scanning
3
The scanning operations and drivers will be different depending on your operating system. The machine uses
a TWAIN compliant driver for scanning documents from your applications.
Two scanner drivers are installed. A TWAIN compliant scanner driver (See Scanning a document using the
TWAIN driver uu page 30) and a Windows® Imaging Acquisition (WIA) driver (See Scanning a document
using the WIA driver uu page 36).
3
You can choose either one of the two when you scan documents.
Note
For Nuance™ PaperPort™ 12SE, see Using Nuance™ PaperPort™ 12SE uu page 42.
Scanning a document using the TWAIN driver
3
The Brother MFL-Pro Suite software includes a TWAIN compliant scanner driver. TWAIN drivers meet the
standard universal protocol for communicating between scanners and applications. This means that you can
not only scan images directly into the PaperPort™ 12SE viewer that Brother included with your machine, but
you can also scan images directly into hundreds of other software applications that support TWAIN scanning.
These applications include popular programs like Adobe® Photoshop®, CorelDRAW® and many more.

or greater), Windows Vista® (SP2 or greater) and Windows® 7 only.
3
Nuance™ PaperPort™ 12SE for Brother is a document management application. You can use PaperPort™
12SE to view scanned documents.
PaperPort™ 12SE has a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use filing system that will help you organize your graphics
and text documents. It allows you to mix or ‘stack’ documents of different formats for printing, faxing or filing.
This section only introduces the basic functions of the software. For more details, see the Nuance™
PaperPort™ Getting Started Guide. To view the complete Nuance™ PaperPort™ Getting Started Guide,
choose the Help tab from the ribbon and click Getting Started Guide. When you install MFL-Pro Suite from
the installer CD-ROM, Nuance™ PaperPort™ 12SE for Brother is installed automatically. You can access
Nuance™ PaperPort™ 12SE through the Nuance™ PaperPort™ 12SE program group located in
Start/All Programs/Nuance PaperPort 12 on your computer.
Viewing items
3
Nuance™ PaperPort™ 12SE gives several ways to view items:
Desktop displays the item in the chosen folder with a thumbnail (a small graphic that shows each item in a
desktop or folder) or an icon.
You can see both PaperPort™ 12SE items (MAX files) and non-PaperPort™ 12SE items (files created using
other applications).
All graphical files (PaperPort™ 12SE’s *.max and other files) will be displayed and include an icon that
indicates the application that the specific file type is associated or created with. Non-graphical files are
indicated by a small rectangular thumbnail and are not displayed as actual images.
ImageView displays a close-up of a single page. You can open a PaperPort™ 12SE item by clicking the
Open with Image View button from the Desktop tab on the ribbon.
As long as you have the appropriate application on your PC to display it, you can also open a
non-PaperPort™ 12SE item by double-clicking it.

Organizing your items in folders
3
PaperPort™ 12SE has an easy-to-use filing system for organizing your items. The filing system consists of
folders and items that you choose to view in Desktop. An item can be a PaperPort™ 12SE item or a
non-PaperPort™ 12SE item:
 Folders are arranged in a ‘tree’ structure in the Folder View. You use this section to choose folders and
view their items in Desktop.
 You can simply drag and drop an item onto a folder. When the folder is highlighted, release the mouse
button and the item is stored in that folder.
 Folders can be ‘nested’—that is, stored in other folders.
 When you double-click a folder, its contents (both PaperPort™ 12SE MAX files and non-PaperPort™
12SE files) appear in Desktop.
 You can also use Windows® Explorer to manage the folders and items shown in Desktop.
Quick links to other applications
3
Nuance™ PaperPort™ 12SE automatically recognizes many other applications on your PC and creates a
‘working link’ to them.
The bar at the bottom of the PaperPort™ 12SE desktop shows which programs you can use with PaperPort™
12SE.
To send an item from PaperPort™ 12SE to another program, simply drag and drop the item from the
PaperPort™ 12SE desktop to the program icon on the Send To bar. PaperPort™ 12SE automatically
converts the item to the preferred format.
If PaperPort™ 12SE does not automatically recognize one of the applications on your PC, you can manually
create a link using the New Link button from the Tools tab on the ribbon.
43
Scanning
Nuance™ PaperPort™ 12SE lets you convert image text into text you can edit
3
Nuance™ PaperPort™ 12SE can quickly convert a text document image into text that you can edit with a
word processing application.
PaperPort™ 12SE uses the optical character recognition software (OCR), which comes with PaperPort™
12SE. PaperPort™ 12SE can also use your preferred OCR application if it is already on your PC. You can
convert the entire item, or by using the Copy Text button from the Item tab on the ribbon, you can choose
only a portion of the text to convert.
3
Dragging an item onto a word-processing link icon starts PaperPort™ 12SE’s built-in OCR application, or you
can use your own OCR application.
Importing items from other applications
3
As well as scanning items, you can bring items into PaperPort™ 12SE in a variety of ways and convert them
to PaperPort™ 12SE (MAX) files in several different ways:
 Print to the Desktop from another application, such as Microsoft® Word.
 Import files saved in other file formats, such as Windows® Bitmap (BMP) or Tagged Image File Format
(TIFF).
Exporting items into other formats

You can export or save PaperPort™ 12SE items in several popular file formats, such as BMP, JPEG, TIFF
or PDF.

Guidelines for printing on both sides of the paper
7
 If the paper is thin, it may wrinkle.
 If paper is curled, turn over the stack, straighten it and then put it back in the paper tray or manual feed slot.
 If the paper is not feeding properly, it may be curled. Remove the paper, straighten it and turn over the
stack.
 When you use the manual duplex function, it is possible that there may be paper jams or poor print quality.
If there is a paper jam, see Basic User’s Guide: Error and maintenance messages. If you have a print
quality problem, see Basic User’s Guide: Improving the print quality.
Manual duplex printing
