Abstract

Proposed is a user interface (UI) programming dialog which allows rapid and direct access to the programmable features of an electrophotographic printing machine using a front panel alphanumeric display and keypad. The programming dialog simplifies the selection of optional print features for both new and experienced users. A "Speed Program" button on the keypad allows the user to go from one sequence of program instructions to another by depressing the button and a corresponding number key. It provides a shortcut through the control panel dialog to the actual layer desired by the user. Each selection is identified by a nearby list of words or phrases (on a label attached to the keyboard) giving an explanation thereto. The addition of the "Speed Program" button will reduce a 13 step print customizing process to one having 5 steps.
