Available Operations in the [Other] Tab

In the [Other] tab, you can check the driver version and configure print settings for application software.



[Excel Job Control]

Select this check box to print multiple Microsoft Excel sheets with different page settings at one time.

When multiple sheets with different page settings are printed at one time, the sheets may be separated into single-sheet jobs depending on the data contained. This function avoids job separation as much as possible.

[Remove White Background] (only for PCL/XPS)

Select this check box to superimpose an overlay image on Microsoft PowerPoint data.

White areas are removed so that the white background of the PowerPoint data does not hide the overlay image. Clear this check box to print the original as is without removing the background.

[Thin Line Support] (PCL only)

Select this check box to perform reduced-size printing. This function prevents thin lines from disappearing.

This is effective for thin lines such as table borders created in Excel, but not for thin lines used in illustrations.

[MFP Authentication]

Select this check box to log in using the MFP authentication function when both MFP authentication and server authentication are used for user authentication.

This option is available when [Device Option] - [User Authentication] in the [Configure] tab is set to [ON (MFP) + ON (External Server)] or [ON (MFP) + ON (Enhanced Server)].

[Display the preview when printing] (XPS only)

A preview window is displayed when printing is executed.

[Convert to Gray Scale] (PCL only)

The RGB values of the original are checked, and if the difference between respective values is equal to or less than the specified threshold, the colors of the original are converted into gray scale. This option is valid when [Auto Color] is selected in [Select Color] in the [Quality] tab.


The version of the printer driver is displayed.
