Printing a Document using the PostScript Print Driver
You can print to the device from your computer through a print driver. There are a variety of Xerox print
drivers available for the device to support all the popular operating systems. The Xerox print drivers allow
you to use the specific features available on your device.
Your System Administrator may have loaded a specific print driver on your computer. However, if the
choice of driver is yours, the following information may help you decide which driver to install.
PS (PostScript) gives you the most options to scale and manipulate images; it offers more precision
with high-end graphics. PostScript also provides you with different types of error-handling and font
PCL (Printer Control Language) generally has fewer advanced features than PostScript. PCL
drivers process most jobs faster than other drivers. This driver is suitable for most every-day printing
XPS (XML Paper Specification) is an open specification for a page description language and a
fixed document format originally developed by Microsoft. Use this driver to improve the speed and
quality of XPS files that you print.
Mac is a PostScript driver that has been specifically designed to work on Macs.
To print an XPS document, your device needs to have the optional XPS feature installed.
In addition to the drivers designed specifically for your device, you can also use the Xerox Global Print
Driver or the Xerox Mobile Express Driver. These drivers will not give you access to all the features
available with the device specific drivers.
Global Print Driver is available for PS or PCL printer description languages, the same as the device-
specific drivers mentioned above. This driver works with Xerox and non-Xerox printers. Using this
driver makes it easy to add and update printers as the print driver does not need to be changed.
Mobile Express Driver lets you find and print to any PostScript printer in any location without
driver downloads and installations.
Your System Administrator can configure permissions to control access to the print feature.
Specifying the time and day of the week when you can print to the device.
Blocking certain types of job such as secure print.
Limiting access to specific paper trays.
Preventing single sided printing.
Setting specific print settings for applications, for example, setting all Microsoft Word documents
to print single sided.
Limiting print jobs to secure print jobs.
Your System Administrator may also configure your print driver to prompt you to enter login details
when you print a document.
