Use the View by Queue to pause and resume the processing of files as well as to reprioritize the processing of files.
The View by Queue displays a list of queues-Printing TIFF to Device, Printing TIFF to File, Printing to Device, Printing to Lores File, and Printing to Hires File - in the Queue list. When you output one or more input files using a process template, Prinergy Evo uses one of these queues to complete the work. The association between the queues and the Pool list in the process templates is summarized in the following table.
- In the Process Viewer window, click the View by Queue icon .
- Click the Current tab to get a list of queues that are currently being processed.
- In the Queue list, click a queue. For queues that are currently being used, Prinergy Evo displays a list of items in the Queued Items list.

Printing TIFF to File
Use the output from TIFF process template and select a file type from the Output To list.
Printing to Device
Use the output from PDF, imposition, or PostScript process template and select printing-to-device from the Output To list.
Printing to Lores File
- Use the output from PDF, imposition, or PostScript process template and you select a raster-based file format from the Output To list.
- Select a printing-to-lores-file from the Pool list in the Render section.
Printing to Hires File

- In the Queue list, you can select one or more queues and pause and resume all of the files within a selected queue. Paused queues are identified as those with a pause icon . Queued items will become active again in order when the queue is resumed. The queued item at the top of the list will be output first. Pausing and resuming queues is useful for stopping all output to a device. For example, the device may be out of plates and you may temporarily need to stop all output.
- Click Pause to temporarily stop processing all of the files within the queue you selected. When a queue is paused all output processing is temporarily stopped and any new files submitted for output processing will be queued. Queued items are identified as those with a clock icon in the Status column.
- Click Pause All to temporarily stop processing all of the files within all of the queues.
- Click Resume All to resume processing of all the files within all of queues.
- Select a queue and then select Always hold new items to automatically pause processing for all new files that appear within the queue you selected.
- In the Queue Items list, you can select one or more items and hold and release individual files within a queue. When a file is held, it will not be processed even if the queue is active. While items are made active in their queued order, held items can be released in any order and queued items can be held in any order. Holding and releasing items is useful for creating a staging area of all output and then processing each item in a sequence and schedule determined by you.
- Click Hold to temporarily stop processing the individual files that you selected.
- Click Release to resume processing of the individual files that you selected. A released item is added to the end of the list of queued items.
