Menu Items Affected by Post Script

Most PostScript menu items are similar to those for the PCL mode. Those that are different are listed in the following tables. For menu items common to PostScript and PCL, see Chapter 3, "Using the Printer Control Panel."

RESOLUTION

300 600*

If your PostScript printer driver cannot select 600 dpi, you can select 600 dpi resolution from the printer's control panel. Note that a file set for 300 dpi overrides the 600 dpi control panel setting for that file only, printing the job at 300 dpi. The setting reverts to the default after the job prints.

PS

When you set personality to nuiu, the printer automatically selects PostScript when it receives a PostScript job. When you set personality to ps, the printer stops switching personalities automatically. Instead, it switches to another personality only when a software command specifically instructs it to do so. nuiu is recommended, especially in shared printer environments.

I/O TIMEOUT

(5 to 300)

I/O timeout refers to the time, measured in seconds, that the printer waits before ending a print job. The PostScript wait timeout and job timeout operators are not affected by this menu item. The setting does not affect how long a PostScript job is allowed to run or how long PostScript waits for input.

'Indicates factory default.
