Setting options for IPDS export
Options are set up on the 'Advanced' page of the Configuration dialogue for that format:
To set options for IPDS export
In addition, when you have finished setting up the options, you may also choose to create a Shortcut icon that uses all the options you have set by clicking Shortcut... (see Shortcuts - the easy way to construct a command line) or Click the Save button to retain these settings after you close the program.
The module to export in IBM IPDS protocol must be specially installed; contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
IPDS printers can use their own built-in mechanisms to generate the text, drawing and image elements of a document from a relatively small file of IPDS instructions. Different printers, however, may render the document differently from the original. EscapeE copes with this by offering three options If it is imperative that the document is reproduced exactly, ticking the 'Render as graphic' box will remove any uncertainty in the faithfulness of the output, at the expense of a much bigger file. Ticking the 'Render all but text as graphic' option will ensure that only the graphic elements are reproduced exactly, so the output file is of intermediate size. If the file is essentially a simple text document rather than a piece of artwork, you may leave both of these options blank and rely on the IPDS printer's mechanisms.
Valid numbers for IPDS input trays and output bins are 0 - 255.
