Usage notes:

  • To select more than one value for the property, hold down the Ctrl key when clicking the additional values.
  • To deselect a selected value, hold down the Ctrl key when clicking the value.
  • When no values are selected in the list, Ricoh ProcessDirector does not build the resource file.
  • The ConvertLineDataJobIntoAFP step template that Ricoh ProcessDirector provides sets the Resource type property to Inline, Form definition. When used in combination with the UseInlineFormDefinition step template, this value makes sure that an inline form definition is retained when the line2afp data-stream conversion component proceses the file.
  • The CountPages and PrintPageRanges step templates set the Resource type property to Inline only.
  • For detailed information, see the RESTYPE parameter in the AFP Conversion and Indexing Facility: User's Guide.
