PreviewPrintWithColorManagement

Use this workflow to print two samples of a job to an InfoPrint 5000 using different AFP color management resources (CMRs), then print the entire job using the CMRs you choose.

This workflow includes multiple instances of the ChangeHeader, InsertCMR, and PreviewPrint step templates, each with a different name.

In the Print phase, the workflow creates a snapshot of the print job, then inserts two CMRs, changes the banner page to reflect the current properties, and prints a sample job. That preview print is accepted automatically, so the job can continue processing.

When the InsertAuditCMR_Test2 step runs its external command, it uses the snapshot of the job as its input file, adds a CMR to the file and writes its output to the spool directory. The next steps add another CMR to the job, change the content of the banner page, and prints the second sample job. That preview print is not accepted automatically, so the job waits in the PreviewPrint_Test2 step until an operator compares the samples and chooses which options to use.

The operator must accept the preview print for the job to continue processing. There are two choices:

  • If the job should be printed with the options from Test2, the operator can accept the job and continue processing in the same workflow, because the spool file for the job currently uses those options.
  • If the job should be printed with the options from Test1, the operator can accept the job and continue processing in a different workflow that is only configured to insert the CMRs used in the Test1 sample and print the job. The job is moved to that workflow for further processing and printing.

    When you create this workflow, make sure that the External command property for the first InsertCMR step retrieves the snapshot of the job file as its input file, not the job file that is currently in the spool directory. The job file in the spool directory already has CMRs inserted from the second test.
