    2. If you are loading pre-punched paper, glossy paper, envelopes, or long paper in the rear paper tray, do one of the following:
      • Load one sheet of pre-punched paper, short edge first as shown.

      • Load sheets of paper with their glossy or printable side visible.
      • Load up to 10 envelopes, short edge first with the flap facing down and to the left
      • Load long paper by allowing the paper to roll over as shown. Select the user-defined setting as the paper size setting.
