 when you are finished.

Understanding the copy screens and options

Copy From:

 Opens a screen where you can enter the size of the documents you are going to copy.

Touching any of the paper size icons on the follow-on screen will make that your selection and return you to the 
Copy Options Screen.

When Original Size is set to Mixed Sizes, you can scan different size original documents (letter and legal size 
pages). They will be scaled automatically to fit the selected output media size.

Copy To:

 Opens a screen where you can enter the size and type of paper on which your copies will be printed.

Touching any of the paper size icons on the follow-on screen will make that your selection and return you to the 
Copy Options Screen.

If the size settings for Copy From and Copy To are different, the MFP will automatically adjust the Scale setting to 
accommodate the difference.

If you have a special type or size of paper that you'd like to copy onto that is not normally in the MFP paper trays, 
you can select MP Feeder, and manually send the type of paper you want through the MP feeder.

When using Auto Match, the MFP will match the size of the original document as specified in the Copy From box. 
If a matching paper size is not loaded in one of the paper trays, the MFP will scale the copy to fit loaded media.

Scale:

 Creates an image from your copy that is proportionally scaled anywhere between 25% and 400%. Scale can also be 

set for you automatically.

When you want to copy from one size of paper to another, such as legal size to letter size, setting your Copy From 
and Copy To paper sizes will automatically change the scale to keep all the original document information on your 
copy.

Touching the arrow to the left lowers the value by 1%; touching the arrow to the right increases the value by 1%.

Holding your finger on an arrow makes a continuous increment.

Holding your finger on an arrow for two seconds causes the pace of the change to accelerate.

Darkness:

 Adjusts how light or dark your copies will turn out in relation to the original document.

Understanding the copy screens and options

26

Copying

Printed Image: 

Copies halftone photographs or graphics such as documents printed on a laser printer or pages from a 

magazine or newspaper that are composed primarily of images. For original documents that are a mixture of text, line 
drawings, or other graphics, leave Printed Image off.

Sides (Duplex): 

Prints copies on 1 or 2 sides, makes 2-sided copies (duplex) of 2-sided originals, 2-sided copies 

from 1-sided originals or 1-sided copies (simplex) from 2-sided originals.

Note:

For 2-sided output, you must have a duplex unit attached to your printer.

Collate:

 Keeps the pages of a print job stacked in sequence, particularly when printing multiple copies of the document. 

The default setting for Collate is on; the output pages of your copies will be ordered (1,2,3) (1,2,3) (1,2,3). If you want all the 
copies of each page to remain together, turn Collate off, and your copies will be ordered (1,1,1) (2,2,2) (3,3,3).

Options:

 Opens a screen to change Paper Saver, Advanced Imaging, Separator Sheets, Margin Shift, Edge Erase, Date/

Time Stamp, Overlay, Content, or Advance Duplex settings.

Paper Saver:

 Takes two or more sheets of an original document and prints them together on the same page. 

Paper Saver is also called N-up printing. The N stands for Number. For example, 2-up would print two pages of 
your document on a single page, and 4-up would print four pages of your document on a single page. Touching 

Print Page Borders

 adds or removes the outline border surrounding the original document pages on the output 

page.

Create Booklet:

 Creates a sequence of collated output that, when folded in half, forms a booklet half the page 

size of the original document and with all the pages in order.

Note:

To use Create Booklet, you must have a duplex unit attached to the MFP.

Advanced Imaging: 

Adjusts Background Removal, Contrast, and Shadow Detail before you copy the document.

Custom Job (Job Build): 

Combines multiple scanning jobs into a single job.

Note:

Custom Job is not supported on all models.

Separator Sheets:

 Places a blank piece of paper between each copy of your copying job. The separator sheets 

can be drawn from a bin with a different kind or color of paper from your copies.

Margin Shift:

 Increases the size of the margin the specified distance. This can be useful in providing space to 

bind or hole-punch copies. Use the increase or decrease arrows to set how much of a margin you want. If the 
additional margin is too large, the copy will be cropped.

Edge Erase:

 Eliminates smudges or information around the edges of your document. You can choose to eliminate 

an equal area around all four sides of the paper, or pick a particular edge. Edge Erase will erase whatever is within 
the selected area, leaving nothing printed on that portion of the paper.

Date/Time Stamp:

 Turns the Date/Time Stamp on and prints the date and time at the top of every page.

Overlay: 

Creates a watermark (or message) that overlays the content of your copy. You can choose between 

Urgent, Confidential, Copy, and Draft. The word you pick will appear, faintly, in large print across each page.

Note:

A custom overlay can be created by the System Administrator. An additional icon with that message 
will then be available.

Content: 

Enhances copy quality. Choose 

Text

 for original documents that are mostly text or line art. Choose 

Text/

Photo

 when the original documents are a mixture of text and graphics or pictures. Choose 

Photograph

 when the 

original document is a high-quality photograph or inkjet print. Choose 

Printed Image

 when copying halftone 

photographs or graphics such as documents printed on a laser printer or pages from a magazine or newspaper.

Advanced Duplex:

 Controls how many sides and what orientation your original documents have, and whether 

your original documents are bound along the long edge or the short edge.

Creating a custom job (job build)

The custom job or job build is used to combine one or more sets of original documents into a single copy job. Each set may 
be scanned using different job parameters. When a copy job is submitted and 

Custom Job 

is enabled, the scanner will 

scan the first set of original documents using the supplied parameters, then scan the next set with the same or different 
parameters.

The definition of a set depends on the Scan Source:

From the flatbed, a set consists of one page.

From the ADF, a set consists of all scanned pages until the ADF becomes empty.

When one page is sent through the ADF, a set consists of one page.

For example:

1

Place your original document in the automatic document feeder face-up, short-edge first.

2

Adjust the paper guides.

Copy tips

The following tips may improve the MFP copy quality. For additional information or to solve copy problems, see 

Solving 

copy quality problems

.

Question

Tip

When should I use Text mode? 

• Text mode should be used when text preservation is the main goal of the copy, and 

preserving images copied from the original document is not a concern.

• Text is best used for receipts, carbon copy forms, and documents that only contain 

text or fine line art.

When should I use Text/Photo 
mode?

• Text/Photo mode should be used when copying an original document that contains 

a mixture of text and graphics.

• Text/Photo is best used for magazine articles, business graphics, and brochures.

When should I use 
Printed Image mode?

Printed Image mode should be used when copying halftone photographs, graphics 
such as documents printed on a laser printer, or pages from a magazine or 
newspaper.

When should I use Photograph 
mode?

Photograph mode should be used when the original document is a high-quality 
photograph or inkjet print.
