Printing and Copying

Copying

To make copies, log in by holding your ID card next to the reader (black box with blue and white flashing light on the right side of the device). If you do not have your ID card, you can also log in by using the keyboard to type your Drake credentials.

To make a copy of a document using the feeder: 

  • Press "Copy" on the machine.
  • For 8.5x11 paper, place the documents vertically face up in the feeder. For larger standard paper sizes (tabloid-- 11x17, and legal-- 8.5x14), place the documents horizontally face up in the feeder. Note: Only set paper in or on the feeder if you are currently making copies of those materials. Setting extra copies or paper higher up on the feeder will cause the sensors in the feeder to auto detect a larger paper size, and your document will print on longer paper than is necessary.
  • For documents that do not match one of the device's standard paper sizes (8.5x11, 11x17, or 8.5x14), you will need to use the "Zoom" feature so that your document will fit the page.
    • Touch the "Auto" icon on the bottom of the touch screen if you would like to select your desired tray/paper size.
    • Touch "Zoom," then "Manual." You then can either use the "+" or "-" to adjust the size or use the keyboard. When finished, touch "OK."
  • Use the menu on the bottom of the touch screen to select other desired features, such as making copies in color, making double- or single-sided copies (or converting from one to the other), and stapling options (under the "Finishing" option).
  • If you want more than one set of copies, touch "No. of Sets" on the touch screen and select the desired number of copies.
  • Once your documents are in place in the feeder and you have selected your desired features, press "Start."
    • To pause or cancel, press the red "Stop" button on the device.
    • To interrupt a copy job, touch the "Stop Job" button on the touch screen. When you are ready to resume, press "Start" again, and your job will complete.

To make copies, log in by holding your ID card next to the reader (black box with blue and white flashing light on the right side of the device). If you do not have your ID card, you can also log in by using the keyboard to type your Drake credentials.

To make copies from a book using Book Original:

  • Press "Copy."
  • Lift the feeder and place the book pages down in the upper left corner on the document glass.
  • If you want more than one copy, touch "No. of Sets" near the top of the touch screen and select your desired number of copies.
  • Using the menu on the bottom of the touch screen, select your desired copy features, such as color or single- or double-sided.
  • If you want to use the "Book Original" feature under "Applications,"
    • First, change the paper size to the size that most closely matches the size of the pages you are copying by touching "Auto" at the bottom of the touch screen and selecting a paper tray to copy from.
    • If you want each page from the book on separate printed sheets (rather than a book spread), touch “Application” then "Book Original." Touch "On," then touch "Separation."
      • To eliminate shadows that may appear on the edges of your printed copy, in “Book Original,” touch “Frame Erase” to eliminate shadows on the edges of the pages and touch “Center Erase” to eliminate the shadow created by the open spine. Use the “+” and “-” to adjust how much of the page should be erased. Note: This can require some trial and error before finding the measurement that doesn’t erase any text.
    • When you have selected all of your desired settings from “Book Original,” touch "Close."
    • Touch “No Original Settings” and touch “Original Size.”
    • Touch “Custom” and use the double arrow and the “+” and “-” to match the size of the book when it is open on the glass. When you have finished adjusting the size, touch “OK” then “Close.”
  • Once you have selected your desired features, apply even, gentle pressure to both sides of the book, then press "Start." Repeat these steps until you have copies all of your desired pages.
  • When finished, remember to remove your document from the document glass, then log out by pressing "Log out" twice.

To make copies from a book using Zoom:

  • Press “Copy.”
  • Lift the feeder and place the book pages down in the upper left hand corner on the document glass.
  • If you want more than one copy, touch “No. of Sets” near the top of the touch screen and select your desired number of copies.
  • Using the menu on the bottom of the touch screen, select your desired copy features, such as color or single- or double-sided.
  • Touch “Auto” on the bottom of the touch screen to select a paper size/paper tray that most closely matches the size and orientation of the item that you plan to copy.
  • Touch “Zoom” then touch “100.0” and use the keypad on the touch screen to maximize or minimize the document to better fit the selected paper size. Note: To save paper and to preview the image of your document before printing it, please see the “To Preview Your Copy Before Printing” tab in the Copying box of this LibGuide.
  • Once you have selected your preferred Zoom percentage, press “OK” then press “Start.”
  • When you are finished, remember to remove your document from the document glass, then press “Log out” twice.

Note: The most effective method of achieving printed pages of a book that fill the whole page is to use the “Scanning Instructions and Features when Scanning a Book” tab in the Scanning box of this LibGuide. Once you receive your scan via email, click on File > Print and select “Fit to Printable Area” from the Page Scaling drop down menu, then click Print.
