Using the Job Settings dialog

You can change several settings related to the print job by using the Job Settings dialog. The changes you make in the Job Settings dialog affect only the current job. The Job Settings dialog is disabled by default. To activate the Jobs Settings dialog, go to /opt/Ricoh/InfoPrint-Manager/bin and run in Spotlight the activateipmjobsettings script. The tabs/pages associated with this dialog are:

    Note:
  1. Before specifying any InfoPrint attributes, for specific information and syntax rules, see the InfoPrint Manager: Reference.
  2. The InfoPrint Manager Select client Other tab does not contain a syntax checker, so verify that the format of attributes, specified in either an attributes file or as individual attributes, are in the correct format. If there are syntax errors, you will receive the same messages provided for syntax errors on commands sent from a command line.
  3. If you specify the same InfoPrint attribute from different locations with different values, InfoPrint Manager determines what values to send with the job using the following hierarchy:
    1. Values specified in the Attributes field on the Other tab.
    2. Values specified in the Attributes file field on the Other tab.
    3. Any values specified on either the General, Scheduling, or Messages tab.
