Default Re: Programatic Paper Tray Selection

Does the JDF module need to be installed & paper catalogs need to be set up B4 any additional settings come up?
Exactly how to integrate JDF with your Fiery RIP is a bit outside the scope of this FusionPro user forum. But the answer to your question is No, you don't need to do anything on the RIP before you compose. You just set the page Media Type in the JDF settings in FusionPro. This offers you standard/generic JDF settings, so no additional settings from the Fiery will appear.

It's when you go to print the composed output that you have to do some additional work to tell the Fiery how to interpret the page media types in the JDF. You have to map the JDF media types to Paper Catalog entries, and then associate the Paper Catalog entries to trays:

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.
