% of Normal Size
The % of Normal Size option provides a slider bar to use for scaling the percentage setting.
The default setting in the entry box is 100 percent of normal size. Normal size is defined as
the media size that is selected within the driver or what the driver receives from the software
program (if the software program does not negotiate the media size with the driver). The
driver scales the page by the appropriate factor and sends it to the printer.
The limits of the range are from 25 percent to 400 percent, and any values outside the range
are adjusted to those limits as soon as the focus is removed from the control (that is, when
the Tab key is pressed or another control is selected).
Any change to the scale also changes the page preview, which increases or decreases from
the upper-left corner of the preview.
The slider bar controls the scale directly. The value in the edit box changes as the scroll bar
indicator is dragged, and the preview image is updated to the new image scale. Each click
on the scroll bar arrows increases or decreases the scale by one percent. Each click on the
slider bar affects the scale by 10 percent.
You cannot achieve an exact value by dragging the scroll bar indicator at the default
Windows resolution; use the scroll bar indicator to approximate the desired value, and then
use the scroll bar arrows to refine the value.
The following settings disable % of Normal Size:
Print Document On (on the Effects tab) is selected
Pages per Sheet (on the Finishing tab) is not 1
Document preview image
The document preview image is a line-drawn image of a page that represents graphics and
text. The document preview image is always oriented so that the contents of the page are
right-side up. The document preview image appears in the upper-right corner of most
Printing Preferences driver tabs (the Paper/Quality, Finishing, Effects and Color tabs).
Switching between tabs does not change the location or appearance of the document
preview image. When you move the mouse over the document preview image, the mouse
cursor changes from an arrow to a gloved hand. You can toggle between portrait and
landscape page orientation by clicking the document preview image.
Use the Watermarks feature to choose a watermark, create your own custom watermarks
(text only), or edit an existing watermark. The following watermarks are preset in the driver:
The drop-down menu shows alphabetically sorted watermarks that are currently available on
the system, plus the string "(none)", which indicates that no watermark is selected. This is
the default setting. Any watermark selected from this list appears in the preview image.
