Testing tray mappings
- On your InfoPrint Manager Windows client system, install the PostScript driver that corresponds to your printer.
- Create a printer that uses the driver you just installed and has a PSF printer as its target destination.
- Click the Windows Start button and select Settings → Printers to open the Printers window.
- Right-click the printer you just created and select Properties from the pop-up menu.
- Click the Device Settings tab to show the trays and options that are available.
- 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.
- Click OK to close the dialog and make the settings take effect.
- See Editing configuration files so you can use the same mappings for all of your printers.
- 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.
- Load each paper bin (including the manual feed bin) with a different kind, color, or specially marked paper.
- 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.
- 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.
