Print and fax

  • The size of printouts from certain applications, including Safari, has been fixed.

  • You can now save faxes in a folder whose name includes 2-byte characters.
  • Addresses an issue with some USB PostScript printers, including the HP LaserJet 2300, Lexmark E310, and GCC Elite 21, in which a "Printer not responding" message appears when you add the printer in Printer Setup Utility, or when you try to print.
