Direct Print

Direct Print is a function that directly sends files on your computer to this machine to print them without using

This function is available for file types PDF, Compact PDF, JPEG, TIFF, XPS, Compact XPS, OOXML
(.docx/.xlsx/.pptx), and PPML (.ppml/.vdx/.zip).



However, the encrypted PDF file cannot be printed.


Application software programs that offer the same function as Direct Print of Web Connection through

monitoring folder) are available. You can also register multiple job settings in which print settings are
