  • Multiple Page/ Scaling
  • Use Watermark
  • Header-Footer Print

How to set an Administrator function

(The screens and setting sections may differ depending on the Brother machine being used.)

 

  1. Open Printing Preferences.
  2. Configure the settings you want to lock in the Basic and Advanced tabs.

    In the Basic tab, you can control following settings.

    Multiple Page: If you choose 2 in 1, you can print 2 pages of your document on a single sheet of paper.
    Copies: If you choose 1, you can prevent printing multiple copies of the document.
    Colour / Mono: If you choose Mono, you can prevent colour printing.

    basic print setting

    In the Advanced tab, you can control the following settings.

    Scaling: If Scaling is off, you can restrict enlarging and reducing the document size.
    (*The Scaling setting and Multiple Page setting in the Basic tab cannot be selected at the same time.) If you set Multiple Page to N in 1 or 1 in N pages, the Scaling setting will be changed to off.
    Use Watermark: Printing a watermark such as CONFIDENTIAL can reduce a risk of information leak and increase user's awareness about security.
    Header-Footer Print: You can include user identification in the Header & Footer information. Printing the user identification of the person printing a document can increase user's awareness about security.
