  • Page 60: Adjusting The Left Margin

    PAPER HANDLING Adjusting the left margin To help align the left paper guide, use the inch-based ruler located behind the paper guides. The ruler is graduated in 10 columns per inch. For example, setting the left paper guide 12.7 mm (0.5 inch) from the left gives a left margin of 6.3 mm (0.25 inch) plus the left margin specified by your software or the printer setup mode.

  • Page 61

    PAPER HANDLING 6. Readjust the right paper guide, leaving a slight gap between the paper guide and the right edge of the paper. About 1.5 mm (1/16 inch) is sufficient. Pull the right locking lever forward. 7. Push the bin lever down to the “CLOSED" position. 8.

  • Page 62: Using Continuous Forms

    PAPER HANDLING USING CONTINUOUS Continuous forms paper, fanfolded at the horizontal perforations, is ideal for FORMS printing rough drafts and long files.
