Setting Printer-Specific Options
Some printers show more options in an Advanced Options dialog box (or similar).
These settings affect how the printer behaves in all Windows-based programs, not just in
PowerPoint, so you need to be careful not to change anything that you don’t want globally
changed. Here are some of the settings you may be able to change on your printer (not all
of these are shown in Figure 17.2 and Figure 17.3):
Paper Size. The default is Letter, but you can change to Legal, A4, or any of several
Paper Source. If your printer has more than one paper tray, you may be able to
select Upper or Lower.
Media or Paper Type. Some printers print at different resolutions or with different
settings depending on the type of paper (for example, photo paper versus regular
paper). You can choose the type of paper you are printing on.
Print Quality. Some printers give you a choice of quality levels, such as Draft,
Normal, and Best. Draft is the quickest; Best is the slowest and may use more ink.
Duplex or Print on Both Sides. Some printers enable you to print on both sides of
the paper. Some printers ﬂ ip the paper over automatically but most prompt you to
ﬂ ip it over manually.
Orientation. You can choose between Portrait and Landscape. It’s not recommended
that you change this setting here, though; make such changes in the Page Setup
