The following paper types are supported:
Sending the “Default” paper type will cancel any previous media type
request that may be in effect, and stops selection of media by type.
Note that both “Card Stock” and “Cardstock” are supported.
When the printer is set to TRAY1=FIRST and paper is in tray 1, the
printer will use the paper from tray 1 without regard to the media
source and page size commands. The page will be formatted to the
size specified in the page size command, but will be printed on the
paper from tray 1. This default behavior can be avoided by either
setting TRAY1= CASSETTE, or by only placing special media such
as overhead transparencies in tray 1.
For custom paper, replace “CustomType” with the name of the paper, and replace
the “#” with the number of characters in the name, plus 1.
