Scaled Printing

The procedure for printing a document with pages enlarged or reduced is as follows:

  1. Open the printer driver setup window

  2. Set scaled printing

    Select Scaled from the Page Layout list on the Page Setup tab.

  3. Select the paper size of the document

    Using Page Size, select the page size that is set with your application software.

  4. Set the scaling rate by using one of the following methods:

    • Select a Printer Paper Size

      When the printer paper size is smaller than the Page Size, the page image will be reduced. When the printer paper size is larger than the Page Size, the page image will be enlarged.

    • Specify a scaling factor

      Directly type in a value into the Scaling box.

      The current settings are displayed in the settings preview on the left side of the printer driver.

  5. Complete the setup

    Click OK.
    When you execute print, the document will be printed with the specified scale.

  • When the application software which you used to create the original has the scaled printing function, configure the settings on your application software. You do not need to configure the same setting in the printer driver.

  • Selecting Scaled changes the printable area of the document.
