PreviewPrint

A step that is based on this step template sends a selection of pages from a job to a printer to be printed. You can use the output to determine whether the job properties are set correctly. If they are not set correctly, you can modify them before you print the entire job.

  • Duplex: Not set
  • Header page configuration file: /aiw/aiw1/control_files/banner_pages/header.jrxml
    If the AFP Support feature is installed, the default value changes to: /aiw/aiw1/control_files/banner_pages/header.cfg
  • Header copies: 1
  • Job copies requested: 1
  • Page range for preview print: 1–4
  • Requested printer for preview print: Not set

Usage notes

  • You can include more than one step based on this step template in a workflow.
  • If you change the value of the Requested page range for preview print property after the job arrives in the PreviewPrint step, you must process the job through the PreviewPrint step again.
  • If you add this step to a workflow that sends PDF jobs to a Ricoh PDF or Custom PDF printer on an application server, you must change the values of the Header page configuration file and Trailer page configuration file properties. Those properties must specify the drive letter of the application server that the printer is running on and the file path to the header and trailer configuration files. For example, the application server uses Z: to connect to the /aiw directory on the primary computer, and the file paths to the configuration files on the primary computer are /aiw/aiw1/control_files/banner_pages/header.jrxml and /aiw/aiw1/control_files/banner_pages/trailer.jrxml. Change the values to Z:\aiw1\control_files\banner_pages\header.jrxml and Z:\aiw1\control_files\banner_pages\trailer.jrxml.
  • The default values for the Header page configuration file and Trailer page configuration file properties change in the step template when you install the AFP Support feature. If you add this step to a workflow that sends jobs to a Ricoh PDF or Custom PDF printer on an application server after you install the AFP Support feature, you must change the values of the Header page configuration file and Trailer page configuration file properties. Those properties must point to JRXML files to generate banner pages. The values are not updated in steps that were added to workflows before the AFP Support feature was installed.
