Regardless of the application I am printing from, I can only print 1 copy despite choosing multiple copies from the "number of copies" dialog box. (My printer shows as a "Xerox Phaser 6510" in the devices and printers folder and under the printers of the device manager "Xerox Phaser 6510 V4 PCL6".) I connect via USB and have established several "presets" within the "printing preferences" box which provides a 1 touch configuration to select paper stock and tray designation.
I played around with different drivers this weekend and discovered:
The Xerox Phaser 6510 V4 PCL6 driver will not print multiple copies BUT does allow you to establish 1 Touch presets that designate the tray, size and type of stock needed. I was not able to specify custom sizes however.
The Xerox Global Printer Driver PCL6 will print multiple copies but does not allow the 1 Touch presets and may accommodate custom sizes as I did not check that.
Thanks Mohammad. I had tried an earlier version of the V3 but had no joy with the presets which I want to use. Will revisit. thanks for the reply and link!
Thanks again Mohammad. Since I like the V4 interface for the 1 touch presets i already configured but sometimes need features of the V3 driver as you suggested, I installed both drivers to the same printer using the same port with different names. If that works i can pick the 1 i need for each task. Win - Win.
if it will help others, read this for Windows 10:
1. Setup as default the print driver you use most, then add the second
2. Go into control panel, select devices and printers, then "add printer." choose "the printer i want is not listed". Choose "add a printer or network printer with manual settings." Choose "use an existing port" and select the port you use for the printer. Then load the driver you want for the second printer by selecting "have disk". Choose your printer from any choices and give it a different name from the first printer installed.
