Testing tray mappings

Once you have your identification statement created, you can test your mappings to make sure they are correct. This procedure explains one way to verify the mappings.
  1. On your InfoPrint Manager Windows client system, install the PostScript driver that corresponds to your printer.
  2. Create a printer that uses the driver you just installed and has a PSF printer as its target destination.
  3. Click the Windows Start button and select Settings → Printers to open the Printers window.
  4. Right-click the printer you just created and select Properties from the pop-up menu.
  5. Click the Device Settings tab to show the trays and options that are available.
  6. If your driver lists the paper trays that are available, activate them and select paper sizes for each one. Set the options to match your identification statement.
  7. Click OK to close the dialog and make the settings take effect.
  8. See Editing configuration files so you can use the same mappings for all of your printers.
  9. Follow the appropriate procedure.
    When you have to change the configuration file or enter the command that your transform will use, replace the inputX=... statement with your identification statement from Identifying paper trays to InfoPrint Manager , and complete the procedure.
  10. Load each paper bin (including the manual feed bin) with a different kind, color, or specially marked paper.
  11. Test your settings by submitting print jobs to each bin of the Windows gateway printer and making sure that it prints on the correct paper. If a job does not print on the correct paper, adjust your AFP bin numbers and input numbers as necessary.
  12. Once you have the mappings worked out correctly, tell your operators this information:
    • What options to set in the device settings.
    • What kind of paper is in each bin.
    • How to print to each bin.
