Changing the Paper Size or Type

Enlarging or reducing to the paper size ([Paper Size])

The original is printed after it is enlarged or reduced by a ratio that is automatically determined by the original size and paper size.

If you select a paper size larger than the original size, the original is enlarged to the paper size. If you select a paper size smaller than the original size, the original is reduced to the paper size.

In [Paper Size] in the [Basic] tab, select the size of paper for printing. The zoom ratio is automatically determined by the paper sizes selected in [Original Size] and [Paper Size].

Tips
  • This function is enabled when [Zoom] is set to [Auto].

Enlarging or reducing by the desired zoom ratio ([Zoom])

You can print the original image after it has been enlarged or reduced by the desired zoom ratio. The zoom ratio can be specified to be between 25% and 400% (in increments of 1%).

In [Zoom] in the [Basic] tab, specify the zoom ratio.

Printing on paper in multiple trays ([Carbon Copy])

For example, by using the print command once, you can print a submission document on high-quality color paper loaded in Tray1 and print your copy on recycled paper loaded in Tray2.

This function is useful when you want to create a submission document and its copy at one time.

    • You cannot select [Auto].
  2. In the [Cover Mode] tab, select the [Carbon Copy] check box.
