Selecting paper type on a Pro-300



I have a Pro-300 and on the display is shows the paper type (Luster, Matte etc). My question is do I need to change this if I select the correct paper type in my software. In otherwords, does my software paper type settings override the printer settings?

Hi nvw,


The paper type that you are printing with must be selected on your computer as well as on the display of your printer.

So what is the effect if I have different paper types selected on the printer and in the software? Does one take precendence, or does it just confuse the printer?

It will use the settings in the driver. If you have matt loaded and have gloss selected in the driver, then it will use photo black.
