Specifying job attributes

By default, jobs submitted through a hot folder use the attribute values in the default document and default job associated with the logical destination. To override these values:
  1. 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, report.pdf.att looks like this:
    copy-count = 3
    sides = 1
    Note: 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.
  2. Copy or move the attributes file to the hot folder. The .att file 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.
  3. 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.
