Document properties tab (Source Configuration)

Settings on this tab configure document properties that will be applied to all documents received by this source.

Option Description
Use advanced document properties

Enables the use of advanced document properties. Advanced document properties facilitate the setting of document properties from multiple sources. Document properties can be set from Output Manager Print Server headers, LPD headers, job tickets, data contained in the document, or fixed values, and so on.

Advanced document properties is a complex feature that only advanced users and professional service engineers should configure.

Use the Advanced document properties check box to enable or disable the feature. Use the drop-down list to select the default document properties profile or an existing profile.

  • New — Displays the Document Properties Profile dialog box for creating a new document properties profile.
  • Edit — Displays the selected profile for modification.
  • Manage — Displays the Manage Document Properties Profiles dialog box, which lists all of the defined document properties profiles. From this dialog box you can create, import, and export profiles, as well as manage all existing profiles.
Document owner

Specifies the Output Manager user that will be the owner of all documents received using this source. Click the browse button (...) to select a user.

Document properties grid

Entries in this grid specify document property values. Modify the properties directly in the Mode and Value columns.

Column Description
Document Property

Lists the property values that can be configured. The properties are grouped into the following categories: Basic options, Media selection, Document, Image adjustments, Finishing, and Other properties. To expand a category, click the down arrow next to a category name. To collapse a category, click the up arrow.

Under each category are the print preferences/document properties that belong to that group. The first node level in the categories determine the print preferences for the properties it contains. On the print preference node, you select how the property should be applied when a document is sent to a destination. Under each print preference are the parameters needed to generate that print preference.

Note: The document properties that display are controlled using the Configure Document Properties Utility.

Specifies how to apply the property value. Click in the cell and choose one of the following options:

  • Always Apply — Always applies the specified property value. Output Manager will add commands to the print stream to enforce the print preference. If the document already contains commands for that print preference, Output Manager will modify the commands to work with the printer family where the document is being sent.
  • Informational Only — Output Manager makes no changes to the print stream when the document is sent to the destination. The value is for informational purposes only.

Specifies the document property value. Click directly in the cell to change the value.
