    • Press [1], [0], and [Set] to enter the value [10]. This reduces the misalignment by 1 mm.

    • Press the keypad on the screen to set the value.

    • Use [+/-] to specify the value to be positive or negative. Set a positive value to reduce misalignment. Set a negative value to reduce curve.

    • Pressing [Print Mode] switches the mode to print mode, which allows you to print the original.

  7. Print the original again in perfect binding and check the alignment in the body sets.
