If "Stock Width" and "Stock Height" Job Properties are selected in Impose node for press sheet size, is it possible to retrieve this info from the printer by using stock name?
If I set stock name in XPIF via media-key attribute, then resulting XPIF will have additional information added if the matching stock is found on printer, including the sheet dimensions, but seems like it isn't being used in the Impose node?
Solved! Go to Solution.
With further testing I noticed that updating of the XPIF ticket with additional info only happens on the Print node, meaning Impose node before it has just the stock name but not any other info about it, which explains why it can't use media dimension variables.
Is these any way to trigger such an update without sending an actual file to print, so that you could use that info in the Impose node?
FFCore is not designed to do that. FFCore is designed to "tell" the printer the press sheet size to use -- not ask the printer what the press sheet should be. That said one could use the printer xpaf C:\Xerox\FreeFlow\Core\00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000\Config\XPafs to extract the media size for the desired media and write it to a xpif.
