Directly Printing from the PC (Direct Print)

Direct Print

Direct Print is a function that enables you to directly send PDF (Ver.1.6), JPEG, TIFF, XPS, PS, PCL, Text, OOXML (.docx/.xlsx/.pptx), and PPML (.ppml/.vdx/.zip) files on your computer to this machine to print them without using the printer driver.

A text file supports only 1-byte characters.

You can print a file stored on your computer by specifying it using Web Connection.

  • You can specify how the paper size is determined when TIFF, JPEG, or PDF files are directly printed (default: [Auto Paper Select]). For details, refer to Here.

  • To print a text file, you need to set [PDL Setting] to [Auto] (default: [Auto]). For details, refer to Here.
