Using Quick Collate

Requirements

  • Plus Features (Option FP, order number Z740FP)
  • SCSI external hard disk

Quick Collate speeds the collation and printing of large print jobs and multiple sets of documents. The collate function in some software applications repeatedly sends each page to the printer in sequence until the requested number of copies is printed. With the Quick Collate option, the job is sent only once and then multiple collated sets are produced by the printer, allowing much faster processing time.

The number of pages that can be collated at one time depends on the size of the hard disk attached to the printer.

Select Quick Collate through a supported driver, generally through the Properties (Windows 95/ Windows 98) or Printer Specific Options (Macintosh) menus.

Quick Collate hints

Output order. Depending on your driver, select Output Face Down or uncheck the Output Face Up box.

Increasing the collation capacity. To increase the number of pages that the printer can collate at once, purchase a larger hard disk.

Quick Collate and Check Print. When you use the printer's Quick Collate option with Check Print, only the first page of the first set is printed before pausing for review.


NOTE
Make sure that you disable the collate function in your application, because the printer's Quick Collate option is faster than the collate function in software applications.

Using Slip Sheets

You can have the printer insert a slip sheet, or a divider page, to separate print jobs, multiple copies of a single print job, or individual pages of a print job.

There are two selections to make in your printer driver.
