FUNCTION Settings

The FUNCTION settings control various printer functions, such as the page
length and character set you want to use. The printer functions defined by
the FUNCTION settings are determined by the printer control mode. The
printer has three control modes: 

BJ mode, which emulates the IBM Proprinter X24E

Epson LQ mode, which emulates the Epson LQ printers

Canon Extended mode, which is used in the Canon Windows driver
and with some MS-DOS applications

N

In Canon Extended mode, the printer overrides the FUNCTION settings.
Thus, when you are printing through the Windows environment, you can
ignore the information regarding FUNCTION and default settings.
