Specifications of Interface Driver for the KODAK MPOWER 180si Interface Kit


MPOWER Driver Features

Most Macintosh Application Packages have two menus that control the Print features:
  1. The Print Menu (refer to Figure 7 of the User's Manual)
  2. The Page Setup Menu (refer to Figure 8 of the User's Manual)
Both are usually located in the File Menu on the Menu bar. The MPOWER Driver offers printing features on each of these menus.

Note: These menus may vary, depending on the application software being used.

The MPOWER Driver offers the options described in this section . Other options you see in windows are being presented from your application software. To learn more about those printing functions, consult the documentation for that application.

Don't Force Out Pages

When the printer reaches the end of a page It will not send any form feeds (meaning it will not reach the end of a page and then ejects that sheet). This is useful for printing short forms such as checks.

Note: The No Gaps between pages option on the Page Setup menu must be selected in order to use this option. For additional information on this feature, refer to the page Setup Menu section in the guide.
