Free Flow question...

We have a D-125 with the Free Flow Print Server.  I was trying to run a 2 part carbonless form with a lightweight sheet on top (CB White) and a heavyweight sheet on bottom (CF White Tag).  The form is numbered. I use a data merge to assign a number from 1001 to 9999 on each of the forms with the lightweight sheet and the tag having the same number. This job is also 4 up on a sheet. So in essence I am running 1 copy of a 2250 page manual. What I would like to do is to run the lightweight paper and the tag together so the the form is printed and collated as it leaves the D-125.

 

That's the situation...here is my dilemma.  In order to to this I have to make the second sheet in each set the tag stock.  But when I go into "special pages" tab there is no "odd pages" or "even pages" selection.  You have to put in a page range or the individual pages that you want to be tag stock. With 2250 pages that would be ridiculous.  It would take as much time to enter the info as it would to run the job.

 

Is there another way to program this job to make the even pages in the job to print on the tag stock? Is there some kind of work around for this?  Every printer or program that I use other than this D-125 has an option for odd/even pages selection.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: Free Flow question...

While most programs do it, RIPS and printers don't. (usually)

 

Fiery doesn't

Xerox and Fuji Xerox don't

And alas, neither does Canon (at least on the big ones like this ImagePress 1125)

The Freeflow is customizable though, you could build a queue to do it via a script.INI file. To do so , have a look at the pdf I attached
