Usage Guidelines

  • InfoPrint validates and schedules jobs using this attribute against the destination attribute plexes-supported.
  • This attribute is valid for ASCII documents in a job only if it is not changed between documents in the job, except for CUPS actual destinations.
  • InfoPrint uses this attribute in combination with the sides attribute. The results are:
    plex Value sides Value Output
    simplex 1 Simplex
    simplex 2 Duplex
    tumble 1 Not valid
    tumble 2 Tumble duplex
  • InfoPrint uses plex specifications in this order:
    1. The plex document attribute unless you specify different values for this attribute for each document in a job, and also specify a value for the document form-definition attribute. In that case, InfoPrint ignores the plex document attribute.
    2. The plex specification in the document or default document form definition.
    3. The plex specification in the actual destination form definition.
    4. plex actual destination attribute.
