Print Preview

If you would like to double check your settings prior to printing, just go to File/Print Preview. You can view each page of the job individually or two pages side by side. You can scroll through the pages using Next Page and Prev Page.

When you are satisfied that all of the number job printing settings are correct, just click on Print and follow your regular printer dialogue boxes.Print Preview Mode

How To Speed Up Slow Printing

Print Spooler and Print Buffer – These two features were created to help the average job process without overloading a computer’s RAM, but we’ve seen that these can actually slow down or cause a number job printing to fail completely.

The print spooler and buffer work by forcing a single job with many pages to process as if it were many single page jobs. This works fine for the average print job, but will often cause failure when you are printing a numbering job with hundreds of pages, especially if you are printing a PDF at the same time.

Luckily, it is easy to switch these features off.

Print Spooler

Windows XP: Go to “Start”, Right click on “Printers and Faxes”, Choose “Properties,” then choose the “Advanced Tab”. Check “Send directly to the printer” and then click “Apply” or “Ok”.

Windows Vista: Go to “Start”, “Settings”, “Control Panel”, “Printers”, Right click on the printer. Choose “Properties”, “Advanced Tab”. Select “Send directly to the printer” and then click “Apply” or “Ok”

Windows 7: Go to “Start”, “Devices and Printers”, right click on your printer. Go to “Printing Preferences” then choose the “Advanced Tab”. Select “Start Printing Immediately” and then click “Apply” or “Ok”


Print Buffer

The printer’s buffer is what allows you to access many higher functions such as duplexing, reverse page order, collating, etc. Using these features while printing a large numbering job can cause overload and failure. We suggest you do not attempt to use these features when printing from Number Machine Pro.

Sometimes, your printer will allow you to switch off the buffer. You will need to consult your printer’s documentation to learn if it is possible to shut the buffer off while printing with Number Machine Pro.
