Changing the Printer Operation Mode

You can specify various modes of printer operation from a Windows PC. Follow the steps below to change how the printer operates.

  1. Open the printer driver setup window.

  2. Select the Maintenance tab.

  3. Check that the printer is on and then click Custom Settings.

    Select Custom Settings (outlined in red)

  4. Adjust the following settings as desired.

Rotate 90 degrees left when orientation is [Landscape]

On the Page Setup tab, you can change the rotation direction of the Landscape in the Orientation.
To rotate the print data 90 degrees to the left during printing, select this item. To rotate the print data 90 degrees to the right during printing, clear this item.

 If Envelope Com 10, Envelope DL, Yougata 4 4.13"x9.25", or Yougata 6 3.86"x7.48" is selected for Page Size on the Page Setup tab, the printer rotates the paper 90 degrees to the left to print, regardless of the Rotate 90 degrees left when orientation is [Landscape] setting.

Do not detect mismatched paper settings when printing from a computer

When you print documents from your computer, the paper settings in the printer driver and the paper information registered on the printer do not match, this setting disables the message display and allows you to continue printing.
To enable detection of paper setting mismatches, uncheck this check box.

  1. Click OK and when the confirmation message appears, click OK.

    The printer will operate with the specified settings.
