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.
I just stumbled across this quirk with the V4 driver: If you specify the number of copies needed AFTER selecting the One Touch Setting it works fine. (Previously I selected the number of copies needed within the printing application and THEN the One Touch and that will render only 1 copy.)
and one other quirk as it may help others with custom size printing: I have the Bypass tray setup for 8.5 X 11 and desigated these settings in the web based server: “Fully Adjustable.”, "Auto Select", and "Priority 1." Among the settings on the printer's control panel I have: substitute tray-off, Paper Mismatch-Print, During Loading-No attribution change and Bypass mode-off. In my scenario i can then print any/custom size without entering different parameters on either the printer’s control panel or the print driver before the task.) Specify the size and orientation in Word>page setup>load stock in Bypass>Print>OK on the printer's control panel. The printer senses the change in stock and will print once you “OK” which means the “new” stock becomes the default. That can be corrected when you reload 8.5 X 11 and then the control panel will ask if you want to change settings: “OK” and reenter 8.5 X 11, Plain, White in my case.
Page 98 of the user guide mentions standard print-quality mode of 600 X 600 dpi and Enhanced print-quality mode of 1200 X 1200 dpi. Is there a setting for those 2 modes? thanks
There is an enhanced print quality setting in the V4 print driver:
printing preferences>after setting: printing options, image options, and document options select the dropdown "presets" and choose "save as." other choices become available then including print quality enhanced.
