Setting the printer to detect the paper size loaded in
a tray
Size sensing disables or enables auto-size sensing on trays. Size sensing also lets the printer detect the difference
between similar paper sizes that it otherwise cannot.
The printer trays cannot distinguish the paper size when both A5 and Statement sizes or B5 and Executive sizes are
loaded in the printer trays. From the Size Sensing menu, specify which size you want the printer to detect.
Note: The multipurpose feeder does not use auto-size sensing and can support both A5- and Statement-size or B5-
and Executive-size print jobs. The Size Sensing setting does not affect the multipurpose feeder settings.
