By using the 'Prevent paper abrasion' function, the space between the print head and paper is increased, preventing print head contact with the paper.

Note: If Prevent paper abrasion is selected, the smudges may disappear, but the print quality may deteriorate. In such a case, perform printing after selecting High in the Print Quality section in the printer driver.
