  • Page 8 Fiery Color Server queries the LDAP server, for example: John Doe (jdoe). Ethernet speed The Ethernet speed setting under Network Setup on the copier control panel lists two choices that are not supported: 10BASE-TX (Full Duplex) and 100BASE-TX (Full Duplex). It does not list a choice for a 1-gigabit speed.

  • Page 14 Black Overprint and uneven color If you use the default setting for the Black Overprint option, which is Text/Graphics, you might see uneven color in some jobs. If this occurs, set the Black Overprint option to Off instead. CMYK Simulation Method and color gradation If you find that color gradations are not printed smoothly, try setting the CMYK Simulation Method to Full (Source GCR).
  • Page 15 You can print to a custom page size from Tray 1, Tray 2, or Tray 5 (Bypass). For Tray 1 or Tray 2, set the page dimensions at the copier under Setup > Paper Tray Attributes. If the document that you want to print has a page size of 220 x 297 mm, for example, set x =220...
  • Page 16 Note that the message that prompts you to load paper has the dimensions reversed (297 x 220 instead of 220 x 297). All custom page sizes sent to the DocuColor 242/252 and DocuColor 260 must be created SEF (Short Edge Feed).
  • Page 17: Finishing Options

  • Page 27: Booklet Maker

    Suspend Printing message If you suspend printing, Command WorkStation and the Fiery Color Server do not display the copier as offline immediately. The printer offline message is not displayed until the copier has finished printing that portion of the job.
  • Page 28: Mixed Media

    Mixed Media treats a job with the manual duplex property as a simplex (single-sided) job when inserting pages into a job. However, the Fiery Color Server sends this job to the copier as a manual duplex job, such that any pages Mixed Media inserts are treated as inserted sheet surfaces, instead of inserted duplexed sheets.
  • Page 29: E-Mail Printing

    Mixed Media and collation To collate a job when you print using Mixed Media settings, you must set the Collate option in the Fiery printer driver (Finishing tab), not the Collate option in your application’s Print dialog box. Mixed Media, Duplex, and Orientation For a Mixed Media job in which some pages are oriented Portrait and others are oriented Landscape, duplex pages might not print with the correct orientation.

  • Page 35: Colorwise Pro Tools

    ColorCal When you calibrate from the copier touch panel, make sure that the Original Orientation (Layout Adjustment tab) is set to Sideways Image and that the ColorCal patch pages are positioned following the arrows at the top of the page, with the short edge at top and long edge along left side of the copier platen.
  • Page 36 Adobe Acrobat, Multiple-copy jobs with Acrobat 7.0.0 to 7.0.3 When printing multiple-copy jobs with a large number of pages (for example, 999), Acrobat versions 7.0.0 through 7.0.3 may not print pages correctly on Windows platforms. If you encounter problems, upgrade to Acrobat 7.0.4 or later. Adobe Acrobat 6.0 and Mirror image When you print a PDF file from Acrobat 6.0 with the Mirrored image option selected, the PDF does not print properly mirrored.
  • Page 37 Adobe InDesign CS2, Duplex printing When printing duplex with InDesign CS2, using InBooklet SE, the duplex print settings produce the opposite result. When you select Top-Top, for example, the image prints Top- Bottom, and vice versa. This problem is caused by the application incorrectly parsing the PPD (printer description file) for the Fiery Color Server.

Microsoft PowerPoint 2003 on Windows 2000 When you print from PowerPoint 2003 on Windows 2000, you might see repeated images or images that are reduced in one dimension in the printed output.
  • Page 40 Mac OS related Constrained Mac printer driver At install, you may select either Fast (to use the Unconstrained Mac printer driver) or Comprehensive (to use Constrained Mac printer driver).
