Setting the Direction of the Print Head

This section explains how to set the direction of the print head.

  1. Click for the queue folder that you want to use.

    The Queue Properties window appears.
  2. Click .
  3. Select the media to use in printing from the Media Type list.
  4. Use Print Quality to select the printing quality.
    If Resolution and Mode are selectable, select those as well.
    The available parameters for Resolution and Mode vary depending on the media setting in the Media Explorer window.
  5. Select the direction of the print head from the Direction list.
    • Bi-Direction: When the print head moves, printing will be performed in both the outbound pass and return pass.
    • Uni-Direction: Printing will only be performed in the outbound pass (depending on the model, printing may only be performed in the return pass). The printing speed is lower but the quality is higher.

    You can also perform the same operations in the Job Settings window. The estimated printing time of the job for each Print Quality mode is displayed in the Job Settings window.
