Merge banner pages into PDF print file

Specifies whether header and trailer banner files are merged into the PDF print file or sent to the printer as separate files.

Values:

Yes

If header or trailer pages are enabled, they are combined with the print file and one file is sent to the printer.

If you request multiple copies of the PDF file, the printer also prints multiple copies of the header and trailer files.

No

If header or trailer pages are enabled, separate files for the banner pages and the print files are sent to the printer.

If you request multiple copies of the PDF file, the printer prints one copy of the header and trailer files.

Default

Yes

Database name

JdfOutputPrinter.MergeBanner

Usage notes:

  • This property applies only to Ricoh PDF, Ricoh TotalFlow, and Custom PDF printers. A similar property with the same name (PassThroughPrinter.MergeBanner) applies to Passthrough printers.
  • Banner pages are not merged into the print file for PostScript jobs.
  • Depending on the finishing options your printer supports, there are instances when the files should not be merged. For example, if your printer does not support subset stapling and your job requires stapling, set this property to No. If you set it to Yes, the printer does not staple the job at all.
  • If you control a Ricoh TotalFlow printer with TotalFlow Print Server instead of with Ricoh ProcessDirector, the header file, PDF file, and trailer file could print out of sequence when this property is set to No. To avoid this problem, follow one of these suggestions:
    • Set the property to Yes.
    • Do not print banner pages.
    • Move the header file, PDF file, and trailer file at the same time. For example, move them to the Inactive Jobs state or the Active Jobs state at the same time.
