Database name
Job.Ink.Highlight
Usage notes:
  • The Ricoh TotalFlow printer sends the ink usage information to Ricoh ProcessDirector when the job finishes printing or is canceled.

    When you print the job again, Ricoh ProcessDirector clears the value in the Highlight ink usage field. Then Ricoh ProcessDirector shows the new ink usage information sent by the Ricoh TotalFlow printer.

    The Cumulative highlight ink usage property shows the amount of ink used to print the job, including all reprints. To calculate this value for the job, Ricoh ProcessDirector adds all the ink usage information sent by the Ricoh TotalFlow printer.

  • Only some models of Ricoh TotalFlow printers support printing with highlight ink.

    Some of the models that support printing with highlight ink can send ink usage information to Ricoh ProcessDirector.

    When any other printer prints the job, the Highlight ink usage property does not have a value.
