Text in a Whitespace area is not displayed in AFP viewer

If you open a file in the viewer and text from Whitespace Manager is not displayed, you might need to edit the configuration file for the viewer component and change the value of the GOCA_PASS1 parameter to 1.

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.
