Clear IPDS Buffers panel

Use the Clear IPDS Buffers panel to clear IPDS print data that was sent from the host but has not yet printed. Clearing the printer buffers erases fonts and other resources that have been downloaded from the host and captured by the printer. On a host that provides proper error recovery, the print data that was in the printer buffers is resent to the printer once the printer is made Ready. In this case, no part of the print job is lost.

The printer must be stopped before this function can be performed.
