Print jobs with different media types
The Mixed media feature defines a print job’s chapter divisions and print certain pages, or ranges of pages, on varying types of media.
For example, you can add blank pages or specify duplex pages within a single print job. You can also use Mixed media to specify chapter-based finishing options, which treat each chapter as a separate finishing or duplexing set.

option, and select from the following options:
Note: If you use the Chapter Start Page(s), Define Cover, or Define Each Chapter As A Finishing Set, all media specified in the paper size per chapter must share the same dimensions.
Chapter Start Page(s) - Designates chapter divisions, using comma-separated values (for example: 4,9,17) to designate the start of each new chapter. It is not necessary to type the first page; page numbers refer to the numbering of the original document.
Define Each Chapter As A Separate Finishing Set - Applies finishing options (such as stapling) or double-sided printing to each chapter created with the Chapter Start Page(s) option. For double-sided printing, this option forces each starting page to use a right-side page, adding a preceding left-sided blank, if necessary.
Define Cover - Assigns page attributes to front and back cover pages.Note: This option is available if the Fiery Server supports it.
New Page Range - Assigns page attributes to specific pages, or ranges of pages. After you set page attributes, click Add Definition to save your settings.
New Insert: Use this option to assign page attributes to blank pages. After you set page attributes, click Insert, and then click Close to return to the Mixed media view.
