Automatically print from feeder tray if open/loaded?
Posted on 2008-06-24
We have a few printers in our office. They are:
Xerox Phaser 6300dn
What I am wanting to do is be capable of printing from the default paper tray but when I open the manual feeder and load paper/envelopes/labels onto it, I want it to automatically pull from the feeder tray rather than from the default tray or without me having to go in and change the default tray in the drivers every time.
It doesn't seem like any of the three printers I listed are capable of doing this. In their manual, they seem to state you need to change the tray setting to the manual feeder in the driver settings to print to it. I also have an old LaserJet 6P that is like 12 year old here in the office that is capable of doing this and printing from the feeder tray when it's loaded. Are printer manufacturers not adding this feature anymore or am I missing something? If not, is there any way to add this functionality to a printer?
