Printer Options Tab

The Print Options tab displays driver settings related to the selected output device. Every output device supports different driver options.

The most common settings are listed below.

Enable driver options

Allows you to use the available driver options for your output device. When you enable driver options, you can set special options from within the driver options dialog. When you disable driver options, the printer's own settings are used.

Print Direction

Select the type of print direction you want your output device to use.



The print head prints in one direction to ensure precise alignment.



The print head prints in both directions to increase the speed of printing while sacrificing precise alignment.


Select the number of passes you want the printer to make before completing the image. The more passes a printer has to make, the finer the quality of the printed image will be.


Sets the number of times the printer prints over the same area. This setting increases the number of ink layers placed on the media.

Page Spacing

The amount of space between each separate job.

Dry Time

The amount of time the printer waits after it has completed printing to allow the ink to dry.

Media feed calibration

The printer uses the value provided to compensate for variations in feed rates during the output process. This provides more accurate output.

Cut sheet after printing

Cuts the media after the print is complete. If a drying time is set, the media cuts after the dry time is finished.

Advance after print

Check to allow the media to feed past the heads and remain there at the end of the job.

Restore Defaults

Returns all settings in the tab to their default values.
