Select the paper by source, type, or size
In the Microsoft Windows operating system, three settings affect how the printer driver tries to pull paper when you send a print job. Source , Type , and Size settings appear in the Page Setup , Print , or Print Properties dialog boxes in most software programs. Unless you change these settings, the product automatically selects a tray using the default settings.
To print by source select a specific tray for the product to pull from. If you select a tray that is configured for a type or size that does not match your print job, the product prompts you to load the tray with the type or size of paper for your job before printing it. When you load the tray, the product begins printing.
Type and size
Printing by type or size means that you want the product to pull from the tray that is loaded with the correct type and size of paper. Selecting paper by type rather than source is similar to locking out trays and helps protect special paper from accidental use. For example, if a tray is configured for letterhead and you select plain paper, the product will not pull the letterhead from that tray. Instead, it will pull from a tray that is loaded with plain paper and is configured for plain paper on the product control panel.
Selecting paper by type and size results in significantly better print quality for most paper types. Using the wrong setting might result in unsatisfactory print quality. Always print by type for special print media, such as labels or transparencies. Print by size for envelopes, if possible.
