In InfoPrint Manager

  1. Open the InfoPrint Manager Administration GUI.
  2. Verify that all of the menu items and details views columns that you will need are displayed.
    1. Click Options → Customize.
    2. On the Printer tab, make sure the Change media check box is selected in the Menu column and that Media ready is listed in the Details to show box.
    3. On the Job tab, make sure that the Change media and Change copies check boxes are selected in the Menu column. Make sure that Media is listed in the Details to show box.
  3. Define the new media.
    1. Click Server → Media → Create.
    2. In the Create Media dialog, fill in the Name, Server, and Untrimmed width and length (inches) fields as specified below. You can fill in the other fields if you like, but these three are the only required fields. See the online help for additional information about the other fields.
      One of the media types from your list.
      The name of the InfoPrint Manager server that sends jobs to your printer.
      Untrimmed width and length (inches)
      Specify width and length values that are slightly shorter than the ones you gave in the snapshot on the printer. The PostScript transform and some printers (such as the Infoprint 4100) round off some values, so setting the width and length to slightly shorter values accommodates that rounding. The values should be at least .02 inches (1 mm) less than the values in the corresponding snapshot.
    3. Click OK.
    4. Repeat step 3 for the rest of the media types you need to define.
  4. Set the Media allowed values for the printer.
    1. Select the actual destination in the tree view of the GUI
    2. Click Printer → Change media.
    3. In the Change Media dialog, click Media Allowed.
    4. Add the new media types that you just defined to the Values list.
    5. Remove any types that shouldn't be allowed from the Values list.
    6. Click OK.
  5. Decide whether to have more than one media type ready on the printer at the same time. If you only have one type ready, only jobs that request that media will be printed. Other jobs will wait in the queue until you change the media type that is ready. Once you have decided, set the Media ready value to the type or types that you want to print on.
    1. Select the actual destination in the tree view of the GUI
    2. Click Printer →Change media.
    3. On the Media Ready tab, type 1 for the Input bin number, then select the Media type and Input tray for each media that you want to make ready.
    4. Click OK.
