Usage Guidelines

  • For InfoPrint 2000 and PSF
    • The value you specify for the output-bin attribute overrides any output bin specified in the form definition InfoPrint Manager uses to process the job.
    • If you specify different values for this attribute for each document in a job, and also specify a value for the document form-definition, InfoPrint Manager ignores this attribute and uses the output-bin value in the form definition.
    • This attribute is valid for ASCII documents in a job only if it is not changed between documents in the job.
    • For PSF, InfoPrint Manager validates and schedules jobs using this attribute against the output-bins-supported actual destination attribute, which InfoPrint sets according to the values supplied for the output-bin-numbers PSF actual destination attribute.
    • For PSF, InfoPrint Manager maps the value to an actual bin number using the actual destination attribute output-bin-numbers.
    • For InfoPrint 2000,
      • If you do not specify this attribute or the job finishings=booklet-stitch-and-fold or the booklet-stitch-fold-and-trim attribute, InfoPrint uses the output bin specified in the destination attribute.
      • If a job requests stapling or some other finishing, the job goes to the appropriate finishing output bin regardless of what output bin is specified with the output-bin attribute.
      • If a job specifies a finishing output bin and no finishing is specified, the job is printed and sent to the top bin.
  • For CUPS
    • InfoPrint Manager maps the value to an output bin using the corresponding driver option set in the printer model configuration file. For more information, see "Mapping Attributes and Values to PPD Options" in the InfoPrint Manager for Linux: Getting Started.
