  • Print sequence number on form(Y/N): If a sequence number, i.e. a number that augments by 1 for each page, is desired enter a 'Y'.
  • Number of digits(1 - 9): Number of digits in the sequence number.
  • Suppress leading zeros(Y/N): Enter a 'Y' to suppress leading zeros in the sequence number. Otherwise the number will look like 000100.
  • Sequence number last used: Last sequence number used for this form application.
  • X, Y coordinates(300dpi): Location in pixels, 300 pixels per inch, of the top left of the sequence number on the output page.
  • X, Y coordinates(2nd occurence): Location in pixels of the second occurence of the sequence number, if desired.
  • Print Bold(Y/N): Print the sequence number in bold, Y or N.
  • Print to File(Y/N): Print this form application to file instead of *USERASCII spool file.
  • Folder: If printing to file, in which folder should the file be placed.
  • Document.Ext: File extension to use for the output folder file.
  • Replace(Y/N): Replace the file if it exists, Y or N.
  • Datamap program name: Name of the custom program used to do datamapping, if one exists.
  • Relative Duplexing: Enable relative duplexing for this form application. See examples below:
  • Multiple PDFs (of Bursting) in an Email: PDF options (6.89)
    • N = The default is a single PDF
    • Y = Email multiple PDFs (of bursting spool file) in iDocs merge
    • Z = Zip that means the PDF file(s) will be zipped to 1 default name before sending the email
  • Including list of attachments: Include a list the PDF attachment names into the mail body
  • Heading line: Include a header before the list of attachment names
  • Trailing line: Include a trailer after the list of attachment names

Relative Duplex Examples Below:

            
Front side overlay = FRONT.MAC
Back side overlay = BACK.MAC

Spool page: 4 pages
1. Page per overlay = 1
Relative Duplex = ‘N’
Result: 4 pages
Page 1: Front overlay + 1st spool page
Page 2: Back overlay + 2nd spool page
Page 3: Front overlay + 3rd pool page
Page 4: Back overlay + 4th spool page

Relative Duplex = ‘Y’
Result: 8 pages
Page 1: Front overlay + 1st spool page
Page 2: Back overlay + 1st spool page
Page 3: Front overlay + 2nd spool page
Page 4: Back overlay + 2nd spool page
Page 5: Front overlay + 3rd spool page
Page 6: Back overlay + 3rd spool page
Page 7: Front overlay + 4th spool page
Page 8: Back overlay + 4th spool page

Page per overlay = 2
Relative Duplex = ‘N’
Result: 2 pages
Page 1: Front overlay + 1st &2nd spool pages
Page 2: Back overlay + 3rd &4th spool pages

Relative Duplex = ‘Y’
Result: 4 pages
Page 1: Front overlay + 1st &2nd spool pages
Page 2: Back overlay + 1st &2nd spool pages
Page 3: Front overlay + 3rd &4th spool pages
Page 4: Back overlay + 3rd &4th spool pages
