Reprinting jobs

Sometimes, you might need to reprint some or all the pages of a job that has already passed through the PrintJobs step.

You cannot specify a range of pages when the job that you want to work with is actively printing on the printer. You must either stop the printer or stop the job before you can select the page range to print.

To reprint a range of pages or page groups in an AFP job, the workflow must include steps based on the EnableRepositioning and CreatePageRanges step templates. The EnableRepositioning step template is included in the AFP Support feature.

To reprint a range of pages in a PDF job, the workflow must include steps based on the CountPages and CreatePageRanges step templates.

To reprint page groups in a PDF job, the workflow must include steps based on the IdentifyPDFDocuments and CreatePageRanges step templates. The IdentifyPDFDOcuments step template is included in the PDF Document Support feature.

To reprint a job:
  1. In the Jobs table, select the job that you want to reprint.
  2. Click Print again.
  3. On the Print Job Again page, select one of these:
    All
    Prints all the pages of the job again.
    Pages
    Selects specific pages to print again.
    Groups
    Reprints specific page groups (such as a multi-page insurance policy or bank statement for a particular account number).
  4. If you selected All, continue with step 7.
  5. If you selected Pages, you can enter a value in the Pages to print again field or click the Select pages in viewer button to look at the job and select the correct pages to reprint:
    1. Click Select pages in viewer to open the file viewer.
    2. Page through the job and find the pages that you want to reprint. When you find one of them, type the page number in the Pages field, or click Add page displayed below to add the page number to the list. You can also enter page ranges, such as 5-14. Separate all values with commas. For example, 3,6,8,12-30,45.
        Note:
      • If there is more than one page on a sheet, selecting any page from that sheet causes the whole sheet to be reprinted. For example:
        • In a 2-up simplex job, page 47 is on the left side of the sheet and page 48 is on the right. If you select page 48, both page 47 and page 48 are reprinted.
        • In a duplex job, page 51 is on the front of the sheet and page 52 is on the back. If you select page 52, both page 51 and page 52 are reprinted.
    3. When you have selected all the pages that you need to reprint, click OK.
    4. Continue with step 7.
  6. If you selected Groups, you can select which page groups you want to reprint using document properties.
    1. Click Select groups in viewer to open the file viewer.
    2. Using the toolbar above the viewer window, select Document properties from the Go to list, then select the property that you want to use to find the page. Document properties are shown in database format, such as Doc.Address.FullName.
        Note:
      • To find the document you are looking for, you may need to use the Find the next document with the given property value button ().
    3. Select the property or tag value for the page group that you want to reprint.
    4. Click Add group displayed below to add the group to the list of page groups to be reprinted.
    5. Repeat these steps until you have added all the page groups that you want to reprint. If you add a group to the list by mistake, select it and click Remove to take it out of the list.
    6. When you have selected all the groups that you need to reprint, click OK.
    7. Continue with step 7.
  7. Select a printer to submit the job to.
    If you see a blue star next to the Requested printer field, only your favorite printers are listed. Click the yellow star to see all the printers in the list.
  8. To print more than one copy of the job, change the number of copies to print.
      Important:
    • Passthrough printers ignore the number that you specify here. The printer command or the control file template must pass the number of copies to the Passthrough printer if it is greater than one.
  9. Click OK.
When all or part of a job is scheduled to be reprinted, Ricoh ProcessDirector increments the Reprint count property for that job and adjusts the Job size property to reflect only the number of pages that is included in the reprint job.
