number is printed below each swatch.
—The Fiery prints swatches using the CMYK values recommended by Pantone,

PostScript printer driver for Windows and Mac OS
You can access the printer driver options described in this section by choosing
Start\Settings\Printers, right-clicking the appropriate PPD name, and choosing
Properties (Windows 9x/Me), Document Defaults (Windows NT), or Printing
Preferences (Windows 2000/XP) from the pop-up menu. To access the Mac OS driver
options, choose Print from the File menu of your application. These settings are also
accessible from the Print Setup or Page Setup dialog boxes of most applications.
For Windows computers, the Fiery driver interface enables you to save combinations
of settings that you can later access. Additionally, you can choose different settings for
individual jobs from the applications you use.
The printer driver writes a PostScript ﬁle containing the instructions generated by your
application and the Fiery print options you chose. The printer driver sends the
PostScript ﬁle to the Fiery. The Fiery then performs PostScript processing and color
conversions and sends raster color data to the print device.
The following illustrations and instructions do not apply to all applications.
Many applications, such as Adobe PageMaker, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator,
QuarkXPress, and CorelDRAW, have other color management options in addition to
those presented in the printer driver. For information on speciﬁc applications, see the
