Configure print settings
You can select the number of copies and the order in which they are printed. You can also define a criterion for processing jobs that are too big to fit on the media.
In the Job Summary area of Job Center you can edit the number of copies and make media settings. Server Manager and Job Editor provide additional settings for sorting the print order.
You can also output job separations. For more information, see Print separated jobs.
- Do one of the following:
- In Server Manager: On the sidebar, click Printers, and select a printer. In the printer's tree view, select a workflow. On the Printer tab, expand the Print Settings panel.
In Job Editor: On the Printer tab, expand the Print Settings panel.
Select a number of copies between 1 and 9999.
One copy means one copy of the whole job (single-page, multi-page or nesting). If you print more than one copy, you can select a sort order.Note:
You can also specify the number of print copies in the Job Summary area of Job Center.
- Under Pages, select whether you want to print all the pages of the job, or even or odd pages only.
Select Sort copies
The default order for printing three copies of a three-page job is 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3. Sorted copies are printed in the order 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3.
Select Reverse order (optional).
The default order for printing three copies of non-sorted three-page job in reverse order is 3, 3, 3, 2, 2, 2, 1, 1, 1. Sorted copies are printed in the order 3, 2, 1, 3, 2, 1, 3, 2, 1.
Select Print jobs that exceed the printable area (optional).
By default, Command WorkStation prints jobs in their original size, and cancels job processing if the job is too big to fit fully on the media. If you select this check box, oversized jobs are printed, but the image is clipped in the output. To print without clipping, scale the job, or select a larger media size for the printer.
