Printer Source tray selection ?

Post by aidey200 » Fri May 31, 2019 12:50 am

Hi All,

Does anyone have any ideas how to select a different paper source/input tray ?

We have written a script to send pdf's to the relevant printer and of course its fine for the printers default paper tray
What we need to do is print x amount of jobs to default Tray (Plain Paper)
Then change the tray to one with a Coloured paper (Certificate)

Cheers
Aidey

The document spec can specify the paper type. You can also alter the printer to set the default paper source.

Hi jvierra

Thanks for the link.

Script runs, no errors but doesn't appear to actually change the tray :(

You have to download the file and read the instructions in the file.
