FAQs & Troubleshooting

I cannot find some options in the Print dialog box. (For OS X v10.7.x or greater)

The availability of options varies by which printer driver is selected.
Confirm you are using the correct Printer Driver for the Brother machine.

NOTE: The screens may differ depending on operating system being used and your Brother machine.
