4-2. When using the Auto Sheet Feeder:
Regardless of the Paper Feed Switch setting in the printer, paper is fed from the auto sheet feeder.

4-3. When using the Cassette:
Regardless of the Paper Feed Switch setting in the printer, paper is fed from the cassette.

4-4. When using Continuous Autofeed:

Paper is fed from the cassette and the auto sheet feeder. Printing can be performed on the same type of the paper in large quantities.

First, paper is fed from the paper source selected on the printer's Paper Feed Switch button. When paper runs out in that paper source, the paper is fed from the other paper source and printing is continued.

Note: Media types supporting Continuous Autofeed are the following:
Photo Paper Pro PR-101/Glossy Photo Paper GP401/Ink Jet Hagaki/Hagaki/Plain Paper

4-5. When using Paper Allocation:
A paper source is automatically switched depending on the Paper Allocation setting.
Depending on the setting of a media type and the size of the paper fed from the cassette, the paper source differs. When printing is performed on paper whose media type and paper size are the same as the setting, paper will automatically be fed from the cassette, and when printing is performed on any other paper, paper will be fed from the auto sheet feeder. For details on the paper allocation setting, see the step 4-5-1.

4-5-1. Click 'Paper Allocation'.

Note: When clicking 'Paper Allocation', IJ Printer Utility is launched.
