FAQs & Troubleshooting

I'm printing from Microsoft PowerPoint 2003 but it is not using the settings I select in the Universal Printer Driver. (For Windows XP)

This issue occurs because the Print Settings set in Microsoft PowerPoint 2003 are not applied to the Universal Printer Driver. To apply the settings, open the Universal Printer Driver (via theControl Panel) and make the changes.

Please follow the steps below:

  1. Open Printing Preferences of the Universal Printer Driver. Click here for detailed steps to open the Printing Preferences.
  2. Click the Last used Devices tab and select the Brother device you want to use to print. Click OK.

  3. Make your changes to the settings and click OK.

    Universal Driver Preferences


  4. From within the PowerPoint document, click File => Print.
  5. Select the printer driver you want to use and click Print.

    Choose the printer driver

    The changes made to the settings will apply to all subsequent documents you print. If you want to print them with the original (default) settings, you will need to change the settings back.
