  • To preview your print job, click on the file menu, then select Print Preview. An image of the first page of the document will appear on the screen. Click on the Zoom In button to preview the page. Use the Next Page and Prev Page buttons to move from page to page.

The Print Release Station will automatically "Log Off" in 10 seconds if you forget. All print jobs not selected will purge automatically from the print servers after 8 hours.
