  • Page 45: Printing

    The following information will help you understand how to enable and print using FIFO printing. The various printing utilities that are available are also outlined in this section as well as using TIFF orientation, MICR, and VIPP. First In/First Out (FIFO) Printing When jobs are printed in the same order in which they are received, this is FIFO printing.
  • Page 46: Enable/Disable Fifo Job Scheduling

    Printing • If FIFO is desired dynamically, all jobs must be submitted from a single client to a single queue with a release status set to [Yes]. All other queues must have the release status set to • If the queue that is set to use FIFO is not currently releasing jobs to the printer, then the jobs may not appear in the correct FIFO order.
  • Page 47 System Guide • • • • ‘No Change Made’ 6. In the DocuSP Print Services, select [System] and select [Restart] to complete either enabling or disabling the Limited FIFO Job Scheduling option. With FIFO Job Scheduling enabled, the Controller will schedule jobs for printing in the order that Job ID’s are assigned to incoming jobs.

  • Page 51: Tiff Files

    System Guide TIFF files This section discusses the TIFF tags supported by the DocuSP software and the guidelines for printing TIFF files to achieve the optimum performance. TIFF orientation The DocuSP Save Feature stores TIFF images in different orientations on the DocuTech/DocuPrint 75/90 and the DocuTech 61XX.
  • Page 52: Supported Tiff Tags

    Printing • Use a TIFF orientation tag value of 8 to eliminate the need to rotate the image. • Use single strip image data to eliminate additional image data manipulations. • Use a value of 1 for Fill Order to eliminate additional image data manipulations.

    The following section contains information about how to use subset finishing and mixed stacking on a printing job. The finishing information below does not apply to Continuous Feed (CF) systems. For CF systems, the finishing configuration is defined at the CF (STAMPA) Controller. CF imposition files are used to impose documents for printing in conjunction with specific CF finishing configurations.

  • Page 63: Fonts

    The following information explains how to use and choose fonts for a job. It also covers various resident and non-resident fonts and their availability. How to choose fonts Although document source files can specify almost any image on a printed page, images that contain letters, numbers, punctuation, and symbols are common enough to require a special mechanism for dealing with them, similar to movable type.

    Troubleshooting 2. If the font is not being downloaded with the job, determine if the font is loaded on the server by viewing the Fonts module of the DocuSP. 3. If jagged characters are seen, determine if there is a scalable option available for that font and whether the user selected that option.
  • Page 87 If the /var/spool partition is full, determine the size of the /var/ spool/XRXnps/inQ directory. If a job is larger than half the size of the directory, delete the job and restart the Xerox software. If the job is small, store it on a server and resubmit the job from the client.
