Special Marks - Edit window

Use the Edit window to make the adjustments to the size and placement of special marks. See Special marks for more detailed information about using special marks.

Note:
  1. The printer must be stopped before changes can be made.
  2. Special marks are not saved in Snapshots. However, you can restore selected printer configuration settings from a previously created recovery USB flash memory device using the Load Configuration function (Maintenance -> Backup and Recovery ).

Select Forms -> Special Marks to display the Special Marks window. Select the mark from the list on the Special Marks panel and select Edit... to display the Edit window for the selected mark.

Side Verify Marks:

Figure 104 shows the adjustments you can make to the size and placement of side verify marks. Side verify marks can be specified for Printer 1 or both printers.

  1. Mark Distance From the Top of Form specifies the placement of the mark in the vertical direction, relative to the top of the form (the distance from the top edge of the form to the top edge of the mark).
  2. Mark Width specifies the width of the mark. The default width is 0.13 inches. (This field is available to service personnel only.)
  3. Offset specifies the placement of the mark in the horizontal direction, relative to the front (outside) edge of the form. The default position is 0.01 inches from the front edge of the form.
  4. Page Number Location specifies the location of the side-verify page number (before or after the side verify mark). This prints the same number on the front and back side of the page for use in page verification. The page number can be specified for either or both printers.
Note:
Side verify marks are placed relative to the physical edge of the form to allow printing the mark in the tractor strips on tractored forms. The marks are printed in the same location on tractorless forms.

Registration Marks:

Figure 105 shows the adjustments you can make to the size and placement of special registration marks. Registration marks can be printed on Printer 1, Printer 2, both printers, or not printed.

  1. Alignment value set to Towards Back of Printer positions the mark at the back edge of the form (the back edge of the mark is aligned with the back edge of the form). Use the Offset field to adjust the alignment from this starting position.
  2. Alignment value set to Centered positions the mark in the center of the form (the center of the mark is aligned with the center of the form). Use the Offset field to adjust the alignment from this starting position.
  3. Alignment value set to Towards Front of Printer positions the mark at the front edge of the form (the front edge of the mark is aligned with the front edge of the form). Use the Offset field to adjust the alignment from this starting position.
  4. Mark Distance From the Top of Form specifies the placement of the mark in the vertical direction, relative to the top of the form (the distance from the top edge of the form to the top edge of the mark).
  5. Mark Height specifies the height of the mark in the Paper Feed Direction.
  6. Mark Width specifies the width of the mark across the Paper Feed Direction.
  7. Offset specifies the placement of the mark across the Paper Feed Direction, relative to the alignment starting position specified in Alignment.
    Note:
    When printing on tractorless forms, the registration mark must be positioned so that it can be read by the toner mark/side verify sensor. For this reason, the range of values you can specify for Offset will restrict the placement of the mark so that it can be read by the sensor.
Note:
Registration marks are placed relative to the physical edge of the form to allow printing the mark in the tractor strips on tractored forms. The marks are printed in the same location on tractorless forms.
