Usage notes:

  • The value set for the Staple property is ignored if the job is AFP and contains an inline form definition or medium map.
  • If the job is AFP and uses an external form definition which has values set for the Punch or Staple job property, Ricoh ProcessDirector uses the property values and ignores the values in the external form definition. If the job uses an external form definition and these values are unspecified, Ricoh ProcessDirector uses the values in the external form definition.
  • Not all printers support all stapling options. For some printers, you can indicate whether a printer can staple, but not what stapling patterns it can do.
  • On some printers, different options produce the same results; for example, Top left and Top left diagonal.
  • On AFP printers, some different options produce the same results even when the printer supports both options because the job submission program does not distinguish between these options.
  • Both the Scheduling and the Page Exception tabs include this property; you cannot change its value on the Page Exception tab.
