Printing Card/Thick Paper As a Booklet and Folded On An Olivetti MF752Plus MFD

This will work on any Olivetti or Konica Minolta based colour MFD that has a booklet folding unit in the Finisher. These are Instructions for printing on to a Card/Thick cover and  getting it folded and NOT having the print rub off or smear. This will work if you just want to do a 4 page (1 sheet of thick paper) Booklet or add a thick cover to booklet. It is important to only tell the machine it has thick paper in the machine and not select thick in the print driver.

Please see below on how to print on to thick paper/card and fold etc.

  1. Log in to machine and select copy screen
  2. Place card in bypass, a window should pop up on the display.
  3. Select thick 1 or thick 2 – do not select thick 3 as this will not work with these settings.
  4. From your computer, go to print and select printer properties

  1. Under Basic, change Paper Tray to Tray 1 – you won’t be using this if it is a 4 page booklet.

  1. Next go to Layout and select Booklet under Print Type.

  1. Next go to Finish and select Center Staple & Fold or Half Fold, both will work

  1. Next go to Cover Mode, turn on Front Cover, select Print and select Bypass Tray as the source.

  1. Next Click OK then click print

It should then print out from the bypass tray and the print should not get smeared.

PaperCut have just released version 15, it has a slightly different look with a new logo. 

 

PC-Dashboard

The major new feature seems to be the new Site Server function, this allows large organisations who have a main print server say in their London office who have their other offices print servers set up as secondary servers more control. As the new site server replaces the secondary server and gives continuity of print services during unexpected network dropouts.

The other major feature is that users of PaperCut  NG  on windows can now upgrade to PaperCut MF easily by basically installing the PaperCut MF over the top of  PaperCut NG and utilising the existing database.

You will need to login as an Administrator through the web terminal of the machine, this can be achieved by putting the IP address of the machine in the address bar of your web browser.

How To Import An Address Book In To An Olivetti MFP Using Data Administrator

Importing Addresses In To An Olivetti MF282plus or Similar Machine Via Data Administrator

In a different post I went through exporting the address book from an Olivetti colour MFP, now we want to import the same address book in to another machine. You can also use this same method to import addresses from a spreadsheet as long as you save it as a Tab delimited text file. I will go in to that in a different post, first we will import the addresses created from another similar device such as a Konica Minolta Colour Bizhub or Olivetti Colour MFP.

Before we start to import the address book that we exported in our previous post we may need to edit the text file to add the password for the SMB addresses as Data Administrator doesn’t save them when you export them.

If you open up Microsoft Excel or a similar spreadsheet application, then open the address book file. You will need to select all files to be able to do this. Then select Tab delimited, click next 2 more times.

choose delimiter type

Next find the column labelled SMB:Password and add the password next to any SMB addresses, once you have done this you can save and exit.

type in smb password

Now we have edited the text file we can import the data in to the machine via Data Administrator.

First you will need to connect to the device like in previous posts, then you need to expand the tree on the left hand side for the address book.

address book data admin

Next select File, import, import each data from the file.

import each data from the file

Browse through to the file you need, it should then ask you to choose what type of addresses you want to import, in this case I am doing Email & SMB.

select address type

Click Next then make sure that Tab Delimited is checked and click Next again.

Then click next until you get to the section where it asks you to match the fields on the right hand side with the columns on the left hand side. You will need to scroll through each column and match the correct fields, see below.

select columns

match up columns

Once you have matched the columns up with the fields click next. On the next screen of the wizard you will need to highlight all the adresses and click on select, make sure you don’t include the column headers as you won’t want to export that to your machines address book.

select addresses

Next click Import and the addresses will appear in Data Administrator, you will then need to highlight all the addresses and click edit on the right hand side. This so that we can select Edit Search Key and check the box marked Main. If we don’t do this the addresses will not appear on the Favourites tab on the front screen of the machine when you select scan.

edit search key

main column populated

The next step is to click export to the device and then click write, this will then push the data on to the MFP.

export to device

Once you have written the data to the machine It should look like this.

How To Export The Address Book From An Olivetti Colour MFP Using Data Administrator

Exporting The Address Book From An Olivetti Colour MFP Using Data Administrator

Exporting the address book from Konica Minolta based Olivetti MFPs is relatively easy using the Data Administrator tool provided with the machine, it can be found on the user disks. If you can’t find it or want the latest version you can download it from our support page just click on the driver downloads on the right hand side of the page. The go to the Data Administrator folder to download the latest version.

google drive - data administrator download

 

The first step to exporting the address book from your machine is to connect to the machine, if you are not sure how to do this then see our article on adding and accessing a machine via data administrator .

Once you are connected, expand the tree on the left hand side and select the address book.

Open Address Book Of Machine

Next you will need to click on File at the top, then export, then save as tab text type.

Save As Tab Text Type

I suggest you save the file somewhere on the desktop in its own folder so you can find it easily.

Save The File Some Where Safe

 

That’s it you have exported the address book, you can now import it in to another machine. I will cover that in another post as you need to edit the text file as the software does not export the password for SMB scanning.

How To Register An Olivetti Colour MFP In Data Administrator

Data Administrator is a software package for use with Olivetti and Konica Minolta colour MFPs. It is mainly used for managing Account track details and the address book for scanning/faxing. But you can also use it for other network admin tasks such as gathering meter readings.

The way you would add a device is by opening up Data Administrator then clicking on the option called “Registration of Device”.

register device in data administrator

You will then use the “Search and Register” option to search the network for any compatible MFPs, you can add multiple machines if you need to. In this example I will add 1 machine and register it.

search & register for device in data administrator

Once the software has found any machines you need highlight them in blue and click select, then ok.

searching

You will then be asked to add the Administrator password which is 12345678 , type this in 2 times then click ok.

admin password for data administrator

You will then need to click close 2 more times. You will then see your devices in the device list, to access them once you have registered them just double click the machine you want and it will automatically start the connection process.
