BinkJet Page Setup Dialog
Page OrientationYou are given two options under Page Orientation: Portrait and Landscape. In portrait orientation, the page is taller than it is wide. In landscape orientation, the page is turned sideways making the page wider than it is tall. The names come from the art world where portraits of people are usually painted on a canvas that is tall, and pictures of scenery (landscapes) are painted on wide canvases.
Page SizeYou are given two options under Page Size: A4 and US Letter. In the United States of America, the standard paper size is US Letter which is 8.5 by 11 inches. Outside of the USA, the standard paper size is A4 which is 210mm by 297mm. Select the paper size that matches the paper in your printer. The default for this selection was chosen when you added the current printer. If you would like to change the default value, go back to the Printers application in the Be Preferences menu and add the printer again.
Two Sided Safe MarginsCheck Two Sided safe margins if you are printing on both sides of the page with the automatic two sided printing module. This will notify your printing application that the printable area of the page is smaller when using automatic two sided printing and allow the application to adjust the contents of the page to fit. If you do not select this box when using automatic two sided printing, the BinkJet driver will scale down the contents of the page to fit within the smaller printable area of the page.
Test PagePress the Test Page button to test out the communications between BinkJet and your printer. This will print a sample page that is actually built into the printer itself. If a page does not print, then you should check your cable and make sure your printer is turned on.
AlignPress the Align button to align the black and color print cartridges. Since the black and color print heads are physically located on separate print cartridges, it is necessary to align them so that the black ink and color ink will not be misaligned on your printouts. It is only necessary to do this when you install a new print cartridge and you do not need to align the printer under BeOS if you have previously aligned it under Windows or Mac OS.
CleanPress the Clean button to clean your print cartridges. If you notice streaking in either your black or color print areas, try cleaning the print cartridges. You do not want to do this very often because it does use a significant amount of ink.
