Settings for selecting print media
Three settings affect how the printer driver tries to pull media when you send a print job. These settings, Source, Type, and Size, appear in your program Page Setup dialog box, the Print dialog box, or the printer driver. The printer automatically selects a tray if you do not change these settings. If you do want to change these settings, you can print by Source, by Type, by Size, or by Type and Size.
|●||Source. Printing by Source means that you select a specific tray from which you want the printer to pull paper. The printer tries to print from this tray, no matter what type or size is loaded in it. However, if you select a tray that is configured from the HP ToolboxFX for a type or size and that does not match your print job, the printer does not print automatically. Instead, it waits for you to load the tray that you selected with the type or size of print media for your print job. When you load the tray, the printer begins printing. (If the printer does not begin printing, you might need to configure the tray to match the size or type of the print job.) Or, press (Select) to have the printer try to print from another tray.|
|●||Type or Size. Printing by Type or Size means that you want the printer to pull paper or print media from the first tray that is loaded with the type or size that you selected. Always print by Type for special print media such as labels or transparencies.|
