This process template section identifies device-related parameters for the output during imposition output.

Output Type

Select Absolute File or Printer to enter the path for a specific network device or file location.
Select Job-Relative File to enter a path that is relative to the location of the job folder.
Note: The default is Job-relative file and the Device Path box default is %JOB%.
Typing a path for a network device in the Device Path box automatically sets the Output Type to Absolute File or Printer.

Submit as Multiple Print Jobs

Select to submit a separate job for each surface that is output.
Available when Absolute File or Printer is selected as the Output Type or when the Delta option in the Render section is enabled.

Device Path

The default setting depends on the value selected as the Output Type.

  • If Output Type is Absolute File or Printer, the default is Clear. Type the name of a Windows NT network output device using the UNC (Universal Naming Convention) path, or click Browse to select a file location.
  • If Output Type is Job-Relative File, the default is %JOB%Proofs. The default value places the output in the Proofs folder of the job that creates the process. You can change the Proofs folder to any subfolder found in a job folder.

You can also include the following marks in the Device Path box:

  • $[jobname;n]
  • $[ProcessPlanName;n]
  • $[ImpPlanName;n]

Note: Replace the n in the marks name with a number between one and 99 to specify how many characters from the associated mark to include in the mark. Single digit numbers (1-9) must be proceeded with a 0 in order to work correctly. That is, 1-9 must be expressed as 01, 02, 03, and so on.
For example, %JOB%Proofs\$[jobname;06] for MyJobName becomes %JOB%Proofs\MyJobN.

Output Blank Surfaces for Duplexing and Collating

Select when you want to output an imposition that is supposed to have blank surfaces (that is, surfaces with no separations) so that duplexing or collating will be correct.

Mirror Print

Select to output media with the emulsion side down.

Negative Print

Select to output a negative image.

Cut Media

Select when you want the device to automatically cut the media.
Available when a device with a media cutting system is selected in the Output To list.

Load Media

Select when you want the device to automatically load the media.
Available when a device with a media loading system is selected in the Output To list.

Unload Media

Select when you want the device to automatically unload media.
Available when a format for a device with a media loading system is selected in the Output To list.

Manually

Select when you want the device to prompt the operator to load the device manually.
Available when a format for a device with a media loading system is selected in the Output To list.

Media Unload Mode

Select the mode for unloading media.
Available when a format for a device with a media loading system is selected in the Output To list. See your device's documentation for more information.

HPRTL Device

If you have a Hewlett-Packard device, select HP.
If you have the Iris 43WIDE device, select Iris/Mutoh.
HPRTL is a raster file format developed by Hewlett-Packard and used by a number of device manufacturers.
Available when HPRTL is selected in the Output To list.

Proofer Name

Dynamically lists all of the proofers discovered on the network. Type or select the name of the particular proofer to which you want to send the proof.
The name may include both the proofing controller's name and the proofer name in a ControllerName/ProoferName format.
Available when Veris/Matchprint Inkjet is selected in the Output To list. For more information about proofers, see the proofer documentation.

Proofer Model

A read-only box that describes the type of proofer selected in the Proofer Name list.

Number of Proofs

Type the number of copies that you want printed.
This box applies only when Output To is set to Veris/MatchPrint Inkjet.
