The following printers are supported by the Mac Daisy Link driver with Microsoft Word version 4.00:

  2. From the Apple menu, choose the Chooser.
  3. Select the MDL icon (specify the correct printer port). Close the Chooser dialog.

To select the appropriate mode for your printer, do the following:

  1. Start Microsoft Word version 4.00.
  2. From the File menu, choose Page Setup.
  3. Click the Options button.
  4. Click the Printers button.
  5. Click your choice of printer mode. Click OK.
