New Printing (Blowback) Options

Posted Feb 20, 2012 in Features

We’re introducing new features and options in our printing/blowback module, which will be a part of ReadySuite 4.1. Some of the new features include the ability to save and load print profiles, print color pages to a separate printer, and pre-processing options that include trimming and adding bates numbers to pages on-the-fly.

Here is a quick breakdown of the new features/options we’ve added:

  • Detect and print color pages to separate printer (with optional slip sheet),
  • Added print log output for detailed log of print items, including diagnostic data,
  • Save and load print profiles for all print option settings,
  • Set the maximum number of pages printed per document,
  • Add a print delay (time in seconds) between separator pages,
  • Option to reduce color and grayscale documents to black and white,
  • Print documents to file,
  • Add bates numbers and endorsements to images before printing,
  • Clean-up images with trim options and deskew, despeckle, border removal and hole punch removal options,
  • Re-designed separator sheet setup for cover, folder, and color-replacement sheets,
  • Option to skip printing a cover sheet when a folder sheet was printed,
  • Added ‘Color Replacement Sheet’ output when printing color pages to a separate printer,
  • Added ‘Print Controls’ for handling testing print output, start/pause and restart of the print process.

Separator Sheets Print Progress & Controls

With the new ‘Print Color Pages to Separate Printer’ option we’ve added, you’ll be able to automatically detect if a page is color, and if so, route it to your color printer. On your primary printer (that is, your black & white set), you’ll have the option to print a slip sheet with the original image or with details about the color image (such as bates number/page identifier). This then allows you to print that slip sheet on a different tray, for example – red paper, which can then easily be replaced with the output from your color printer.
