Usage Guidelines

  • In two-sided jobs, the number of pages printed on each sheet is twice the number-up value.
  • This attribute is not valid for ASCII documents, except for CUPS destinations.
  • This attribute is not valid for psf-command or other-driver destinations.
  • If you specify a value for the document form-definition attribute, InfoPrint ignores the number-up attribute and uses the number-up value in the form definition.
  • InfoPrint validates and schedules jobs using this attribute against the destination attribute number-up-supported.
  • For CUPS DSS destinations, the ability to generate number-up pages depends on the printer driver file (PPD) associated with the printer-model.
