Canon iR-ADV C5045 - How to select a different tray from which to print

Users want to be able to select a different tray or drawer from which to print "on the fly". However, even though the printer has 4 drawers, the only option users (even users with printer management permissions) see from Printing Preferences > Paper/Quality > Tray Selection are Automatically Select and Manual Paper Feed. Perhaps using the Remote UI (the printer's web interface), how can I configure the printer to give users the ability to see and choose from all 4 printer drawers?

Thank you

You may have to tell the driver the trays are installed. Go to Printer Properties and look for a tab called something like "options", "device settings" or "configuration". The label varies with the printer model. If it's there, set the driver up with the installed options, which may also include duplexer, mail bins, etc.

I had tried what hdhondt said, but none of the items he suggested were available. I ended up downloading and installing a different, older driver from Canon - Generic_Plus_PCL6_v1.30_Set-up_x64.exe. It gave users the ability to select the tray (or "Drawer" in Canon nomenclature) from which to print.
