Re: auto tray switching when printing

Jump to solution

Auto tray switching is on for jobs that don't specify a tray. So if you tell the driver to print to tray 2 and it has 11*17 it will empty the tray and stop.

If you tell the driver to print on 11*17 it will print to a tray with that in it, and when it empties it, it will move on to the next tray with 11*17 in it. The order in which the trays go is the priority (1 lowest is top priority) of the tray. 2 is whether the device should allow switching with that tray (You disable switching for things like letterhead or some other tray you don't want people to use by accident)

auto tray switching when printing

Jump to solution
Product Name: AltaLink C8030 / C8035 / C8045 / C8055 / C8070 Color Multifunction Printer
Operating System: Windows 10 x64

Im printing to our 8070 with tray one and two set to 11x17 plain paper. 

I would like it to switch to the second tray when the first one runs out of paper. 

any suggestions? I cannot find auto tray switching in the web interface.
