Fixed Value Input Synonym
imposition-simple-1-up 1up
imposition-simple-2-up 2up
imposition-simple-3-up 3up
imposition-simple-4-up 4up

Default Values

imposition-simple-1-up, imposition-simple-2-up, imposition-simple-3-up, imposition-simple-4-up, generic-none

Usage Guidelines

  • The value generic-none applies only to the actual destination. You cannot request this value with the document attribute number-up.

    When the values for number-up-supported include generic-none, the actual destination accepts documents without a value for the number-up attribute. The actual destination also accepts documents without a value for the number-up attribute when there are no values for number-up-supported.

  • InfoPrint compares the document attribute number-up to this attribute for validation and scheduling.
  • You can use this attribute to restrict use of this actual destination.
  • For CUPS DSS destinations, the ability to generate number-up pages depends on the printer driver file (PPD) associated with the printer-model.
