Adjusting Line Length (Adjust Length) (iPF8400)


To ensure that lines in CAD drawings are printed at exactly the right length, use Adjust Length to adjust the amount that paper is advanced.
There are two options in Adjust Length : AdjustmentPrint and Change Settings.
  • AdjustmentPrint
After a test pattern is printed, you will measure the discrepancy based on the results of printing.
  • Change Settings
No test pattern is printed. Instead, you will measure a document already printed to determine the discrepancy.
Additionally, two modes are available in AdjustmentPrint and Change Settings : A:High or B:Standard/Draft. Choose the mode that suits your particular printing application.
  • A:High
This setting is applied when Highest quality or High is selected in Print Quality in the printer driver.
  • B:Standard/Draft
This setting is applied when Standard or Fast is selected in Print Quality in the printer driver.
