Printing PRN file with 2 merge PDF files using PJL

Hi

 

We are attempting to use PJL language to print a PRN file which have 2 PDF document within it. It should then staple the document together.

 

We successfully use the below to allow stapling

@PJL COMMENT XRXbegin
@PJL COMMENT OID_ATT_FINISHING OID_VAL_FINISHING_STAPLE;
@PJL COMMENT XRXSTAPLE=PORTRAIT;
@PJL COMMENT XRXend

 

But the printout only contain the 2nd PDF document in the PRN file. The 1st PDF document is not printed. Would like to know if there could be any possible PJL code that we missed when we are trying to merge 2 documents.

 

The same PRN file can be use on Fuji Xerox to print both document, but not on Xerox. Pls advice.

Hi, Xavier!

 

Are you using PCL or PS?

If you're using PS try this instead:

 

%%XRXbegin
%%OID_ATT_FINISHING OID_VAL_FINISHING_STAPLE;
%%XRXSTAPLE=PORTRAIT;
%%XRXend

 

If that does not work try having a look at the reference guide, HERE.

 

Best Regards

Kimzi

Re: Printing PRN file with 2 merge PDF files using PJL

We are using PJL. The code i quoted already work to perform stapled. Just that we do not know why it is only printing the 2nd PDF in a merge file with 2 PDF. Thanks for your advice though.

Hi again Xavier!

 

I suggest that you have a look through the document I linked in my previous post, it might come in handy.

What if you add the job type?

Could it be that the file is corrupt, have you tried another pdf document with more than one page?

Re: Printing PRN file with 2 merge PDF files using PJL

Yes, i did. Infact we have a similar document too. We generate the file over and over again using different PDF docs. But still we have the problem. We can print all our files in Fuji Xerox printers. So we suspect Xerox might have Xerox specific code that i need to add.

 

Hoping to find some answer here.

Re: Printing PRN file with 2 merge PDF files using PJL

Hi again, Xavier!

 

I've been looking through THIS reference guide, and the only thing I can think of is if somethings missing. Are you using the opening and closing command? and what about @PJL COMMENT OID_ATT_START_SHEET OID_VAL_JOB_SHEET_NONE; ?

If that's not it, I'm stuck. Hopefully someone else on the forums does have an idea on this.

 

Best Regards

Kimzi
