Hidden text is being displayed instead of hidden in AFP viewer

If you open a file in the viewer and see text that should be hidden, you might need to edit the configuration file for the viewer component and change the value of the GOCA_PASS1 parameter to 2.

The GOCA_PASS1 parameter specifies whether or not text supersedes graphics such as hidden areas or cover blocks. The default value of GOCA_PASS1 is 2.

To change GOCA_PASS1:

  1. Navigate to the /opt/infoprint/ippd/afpviewer/ directory.
  2. Open the a2pxopts.cfg file.
  3. Change the value of GOCA_PASS1 at the bottom of the file.

Text supersedes graphics such as hidden areas. Set GOCA_PASS1 to 1 if you have text added by Whitespace Manager.
Graphics such as hidden areas supersede text. Set GOCA_PASS1 to 2 if you have hidden text.
