Overview

Forms and Favorites

 lets users quickly and easily print frequently used documents from the printer control panel. First,

configure a bookmark to point to the location of an electronic file. The electronic form or other document can be located
on a Web site, a network drive, or an FTP site. Then, access the form or other document by touching the application
icon on the printer home screen. Bookmarks can also be saved as shortcuts directly to the printer home screen for
immediate access to your documents and forms.

A working knowledge of the printer is helpful for the effective use of this guide. For more information about your printer
model, see the documentation that came with the printer.

Troubleshooting

These are possible solutions. Try one or more of the following:

M

AKE

 

SURE

 

THE

 

BOOKMARK

 

IS

 

CONFIGURED

 

PROPERLY

For information on configuring bookmarks, see “Configuring Forms and Favorites” on page 4.

M

AKE

 

SURE

 

THE

 

BOOKMARK

 

IS

 

POINTING

 

TO

 

THE

 

CORRECT

 

LOCATION

Verify that the form resides in the correct network location. The printer will not validate the location that the
bookmark points to. As a result, if the URL or network location that was specified when the bookmark was created
is incorrect, the printer will not be able to access the document.

Some bookmarks do not appear in an exported configuration
file

M

Only up to 60 bookmarks can be exported in a single .ucf file. Any bookmarks that are not included in the file must
be added to the printer manually.
