To define the media content for the banner pages, one option is to build an .xpf file (and submit with the job -- needs same name including extension) designating banner page media.
Since I cannot attach a file, here is the xpf which needs to be saved in a txt file with the name = submitjobname.extension.xpf (e.g. job.pdf.xpf):
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE xpif SYSTEM "xpif-v02080.dtd">
<xpif version="1.0" cpss-version="2.07" xml:lang="en-US">
<!-- Leading Banner Pages -->
<!-- Number of Leading Banner Pages -->
<!-- Stock Width and Height
Values: Distance in hundredths of a millimeter -->
<!-- Stock Color -->
<!-- Stock Type -->
<!-- Stock Sequence -->
<!-- Stock Weight
Value: Weight in GSM -->
<!-- Stock Coating. Add media-back-coating element for 2 Sides Coated -->
<!-- Stock Texture -->
<!-- Grain Direction -->
<!-- Drilled Stock -->
The issue is that on the DFE I only see a way to define one administrative media. The Leading Banners are administrative pages as well as the Attributes Report. I would like to Print the banners on one media and the Attributes Report on a different stock. I thought of recreating the Attributes Page in CORE as part of the Job since ultimately we would like this on the same stock as the rest of the job, but this will yeild 1 Attributes Report per Each Sheet of the job for a static item with a Quantity passed to the press. IDK that what we want is possible, just thought I'd see if anyone else had any other ideas.
On the FFPS DFE, the administrative pages media type can be changed at "Printer" menu/"Switches". FFCore does not have control of the administrative media type.
We are adding jobs into CORE where we are creating a custom 8.5x11" Banner Sheet. The Bindery also likes to have the Attributes Admin Page on top of the job on the same stock as the job. So if the job runs on 12x18 80# Cover and we want to print the Banners on 8.5x11 28# using leading banner pages, how can I also run the admin page on 12x18 80# Cover? Thanks -Brass
