Configuring document processing features

To configure document processing features, you define the custom document properties you need and then update them to make them available to the system. Using Ricoh ProcessDirector Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat for PDF files or Ricoh Visual Workbench for AFP files, you set up to use documents in your PDF or AFP jobs. You configure your PDF or AFP workflows to process documents. Finally, you make adjustments to maximize document processing performance on your system.

The workflow configuration topics in this section apply to the PDF Document Support and AFP Support features, which add basic document processing functions. To configure workflows for specialized needs, such as archiving document information in a repository, see the configuration information for the feature that adds the specialized functions and objects. Examples of these document processing features are:

  • Archive
  • Automated Verification
  • Inserter
  • Postal Enablement
  • Preference Management

If you get unexpected results when you process a PDF 2.0 file with a step based on the IdentifyPDFDocuments step, do one of these:

  • Use the version of the Ricoh ProcessDirector Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat supplied with Ricoh ProcessDirector version 3.6 and above to update the control file. Remember to copy the control file to the correct location for Ricoh ProcessDirector to use it.
  • Place a step based on the OptimizePDF step template in the workflow before the IdentifyPDFDocuments step.
