Usage Guidelines

  • The value of the plex attribute must be one of the values of the plexes-supported attribute.
  • This attribute is valid for ASCII documents in a job only if it is not changed between documents in the job.
  • 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 this case, InfoPrint ignores the plex document attribute.
    2. The plex specification in the document or default document form definition.
    3. The plex actual destination attribute.
    Note: Because all supplied form definitions contain a plex specification, the plex actual destination attribute is used only with custom form definitions that do not contain a plex specification.
