PRINT OPTIONS OVERVIEW

PRINT OPTIONS OVERVIEW


This chapter describes printer drivers and PPD files, Fiery print options, and locations for
setting print options.

About printer drivers and printer description files


The Fiery receives files from computers on the network, processes (RIPs) the files, and then
sends them to the copier. Windows and Apple Mac OS computers communicate with the
Fiery by means of a printer driver and PPD files. Windows computers can also communicate
with the Fiery by means of a Printer Control Language (PCL) printer driver and PDD files
(PCLs equivalent of PPD files). Both drivers enable you to use special features of the Fiery
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, a language 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. 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 includes information about the features of both
the copier and the Fiery. For information about the specific print options for the Fiery, see the
table on page 10.

PRINT OPTIONS OVERVIEW

About print options


Print options give you access to the special features of your copier and Fiery. Print options can
be specified in several placesin Fiery Setup, or from the printing application, ColorWise
Pro Tools or Command WorkStation.

Print option override hierarchy


The override hierarchy is as follows:
A users printer driver settings override the Fiery Setup and ColorWise Pro Tools settings.
Settings made from Command WorkStation and Spooler override the users printer driver
settings.

PRINT OPTIONS OVERVIEW

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
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, Pure Black Text/Graphics, and Black Overprint settings. For
more information about using ColorWise Pro Tools, see Color Printing.
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 Command WorkStation, see Command WorkStation Help.

PRINT OPTIONS

PRINT OPTIONS
This chapter explains each print option, default setting, and any constraints or requirements.
It also provides details about specific print options.

Fiery print options


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 prints the job with the underlined setting.
For options that you configure in Command WorkStation, WebSetup, or ColorWise Pro
Tools, choosing Printers default results in the Fiery printing the job with the setting you
specified in Setup. For options that cannot be configured in Setup, the Fiery prints the job
with a preconfigured Printers default setting. For more information, see the Requirements,
constraints, and information column in the table.

set to one of the duplex settings, the copier automatically turns the paper for printing on the
opposite side.
TO PRINT DUPLEX PAGES AUTOMATICALLY

The location of Fiery print options varies, depending on the printer driver that you use.
2 Choose a Duplex setting.

image on Side 2.
Top-Bottom: Prints the top of the image on Side 1 on the opposite edge of the page from the

top of the image on Side 2.

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) axis. 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 available in Windows printer drivers or Command WorkStation and

Spooler.
N OTE : This option is effective only for jobs in which 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.

N OTE : The maximum value for both X and Y axes is 999.99 points/13.88 inches/352.77 mm.
4 To align front and back images proportionately, select Align front and back images.

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 200%, the job is printed at 100% of the original
document size, that is, 50% of 200%.
