The toner save mode is used to print a test page. If you use the toner save mode,
you can print using less toner.
If ON is speciﬁed for this item, print result may be faint and unclear. Parts to which
gradation is applied in very light gray may appear denser in color.

This setting speciﬁes how to express halftones in black and white data.
Print data is expressed in dots. Fine gradations, edges, and shades are
expressed by using dither patterns, which are groups of dots. This is called
For example, using a pattern that sharpens character and line edges, or a pattern
that smoothens image and graph gradation, enables you to obtain the most
If RESOLUTION is selected, you can print text with distinct outlines, which is best
to print text and thin lines.
If GRADATION is selected, you can print with both smooth gradation and outlines,
which is best to print graphs and graphics that use gradation.
If COLOR TONE is selected, you can print with sharp gradation and well-balanced
texture, contrasting light and shade, which is best for printing images.
If HIGH RESOL. is selected, ﬁner printing can be done than with RESOLUTION,
although toner stability is somewhat weaker. This is suited to printing small
characters and ﬁne lines, and outlines (such as from CAD data) sharply.
