Specifying job attributes
- Create an attributes file called
filename.att, where filename is the same as the file name of the print file. For example, if the print file is
report.pdf, the attributes file is
report.pdf.att. In this file, specify the attributes and values that you want. For example, to print three single-sided copies of
report.pdf.attlooks like this:
copy-count = 3 sides = 1Note: This file is the same format as an attribute file specified with the -X flag on a pdpr print command. For information about job and document attributes, see InfoPrint Manager: Reference.
- Copy or move the attributes file to the hot folder. The
.attfile extension tells InfoPrint not to print the attributes file. You must make sure that the attributes file is either copied or moved to the hot folder before you copy or move the print file to the hot folder.Note: This step is optional because you can create the attributes file in the Hot Folder directory.
- Copy or move the print file to the hot folder. InfoPrint looks for an attributes file with the same file name and submits the two files together.
By default, hot folder jobs are submitted with job notifications turned off. To get notifications on hot folder jobs, you must specify a notification-profile with an explicit delivery-address in the .att file.
