2. Error messages are displayed in English.
3. In Preview, a Tiff file cannot be printed, and the error message "Printer Error. An error occurred while printing." is displayed.
4. During printing, if an error dialog is displayed, and if the button in the dialog is clicked, Print Center is immediately closed, or the same error message will appear at resumption of printing.
5. If Advanced Options is selected in the Print dialog first, and then the Presets setting is changed, the LED keeps blinking in green, and printing does not start.
6. In the Spanish version, in Utility, the Quiet Mode time setting cannot be switched to "am" from "pm". (It stays with "pm".)
7. When printing multiple copies in auto duplex printing, collated printing is not possible.
8. When attempting to print, the printer does not operate in some instances.

Mac OS X v10.3 to v10.4
9. Installation of the printer driver may require a little time to complete, and it takes 3 to 4 (possibly as much as 8 to 9) minutes from when the Continue Installation button is clicked until the Restart button is displayed.
10. In wireless connection, after print head alignment, the operation panel does not become active again, and the utility cannot be used in some instances.
11. Multiple numbers of the same printer name are registered to the Printer Setup Utility in some instances.
12. Even when an error is released, the error message remains in some instances.
13. When attempting to print, the printer does not operate in some instances.
14. In the following environment, even after clicking "About ink" in the Ink Level Information menu of the Canon IJ Printer Utility or "Initial Check Items" in the confirmation dialog for nozzle check pattern printing, nothing is displayed:
Security Update 2005-005 or Security Update 2005-006 is installed in Mac OS X Ver. 10.3.9
15. In Mac OS X Ver. 10.4 or later, the number of copies cannot be entered in the Print dialog.
16. When the Print dialog is displayed from IllustratorCS2 or InDesignCS2 in Mac with Intel-made processor, the margins are incorrect and so the message "The entered value cannot be applied to margin" is displayed. Therefore, as "Margin" or "Duplex Printing & Margin" option is not displayed, auto duplex printing cannot be performed.

1. Display Page Setup while the print dialog is open.
2. Click OK or Cancel to close Page Setup.
3. Click Advanced in the lower middle of the print dialog.
