Blue diamond bullet Notes

IMG export produces a datastream in Variable blocked format for feeding directly to a channel-attached Xerox centralized DJDE/Metacode printer. (The Xerox IMG in Barr format is used where the printer has a Barr spooler interface attached.) These formats enable documents from standard word processing software to be output as a PCL file and then converted by EscapeE for printing identically on a Metacode printer. Both formats make use of PP.JSL supplied.

Input trays can be configured to correspond to the PCL input tray numbers. It is then possible to set up a field definition which forces a particular type of page to feed from the desired tray. See IMG export options.

The "Dept" option allows you to specify the accounting department to use. Contact RedTitan if you require more help with using this option.

Creating an image does not allow you to edit the file or use the text search facility. Use the FDL export if you wish to create an editable version.
