    Default How do you get a multi-copy single page job to stack straight?

    When printing a multiple copy single page job, (e.g. 100 copies of 1 page) each sheet is jogged/offset in the finisher tray by default. We want the 100 copies delivered in a straight stack.
    What is the setting in MicroPress to do this?
    MicroPress Version 8.3.3r Build 1635, 0137r Connector.
    Thanks,

    Well, I guess I'll answer my own question...

    In PrintStation Manager:
    - Expand the Virtual Engine icon to show the Physical Engine icon
    - Double click this Physical Engine icon
    - Click the "Device" tab in the dialog that opens
    - Scroll to "Advanced" and expand the category
    - Set "Engine Supports Group" to "True"

    It appears to work.

    Hello,
    Setting the job to Group is probably the easiest thing to do. It even works for 2 page duplex since the output is still a single sheet.
    In the Finishing Options there is a Jog Copies selection which specifically turns ON/OFF the jog (or offset) functionality, but... this may depend heavily on the type of printer. With a PrintLink (or Fiery) connection many times the offset stacking is controlled by the engine/controller setting. This means you might uncheck the feature in PSM but the printer will still offset the output. To completely turn it off you would have to change a setting at the printer controller.
    So, like I said upfront, using Group is probably the easiest (and fastest) way to get the desired result if you only have a single sheet output.

    Thanks,
