Medium preprinted overlay for front

Specifies an AFP preprinted form overlay for the front side of a full page in the job. A preprinted form overlay is an AFP resource that contains the predefined data for a form. Unlike medium or page overlays, preprinted form overlays are always placed on the page first so that variable data is not covered up by shading or other data.

The overlay must reside in one of the directories that the AFP resource path job or printer property specifies or in one of these directories:

  • On AIX and Linux:
    • In the /aiw/aiw1/resources directory.
    • In the /usr/lpp/psf/reslib directory.
  • On Windows:
    • In the c:\aiw\aiw1\resources directory.
    • In the \reslib directory in the PSF install path. The default install path is c:\Program Files (x86)\InfoPrint\PSF.

Usage notes:

  • The overlay named in this property is used instead of a preprinted forms overlay named in the form definition specified for the job, an overlay named in the Partition preprinted overlay for front for the job, or any preprinted form overlays for the front named on the AFP printer.
