Bundled with every Canon imagePROGRAF printer is an extensive software suite, part of that suite is a streamlining tool known as Direct Print and Share. It’s a fantastic, time-saving tool that allows you to quickly and easily batch print PDFs, TIFFs and JPEGs rather than working through the laborious process of file – open – file – print – number of copies – print – close, for every document.
Imagine the scenario in which you have a set of 35 items that each need different numbers of copies, going through those 7 steps for each one would get pretty tedious right?
With Canon’s Direct Print and Share, a “Shortcut Print” option enables you to setup basic hot folders on your desktop to speed up your workflow via simple drag and drop printing automation. Just pre-set the quality, size and media type and files won’t even need to be opened to be printed! Plus, there’s no need to pay for a costly Postscript option as all Canon imagePROGRAF printers are natively compatible with PDFs and batch printing.
Did we mention that DP&S is actually Free? How great is that?
