    Default JDF Page Range printing

    Hi EFI community,

    For a customer, we need to submit PostScript jobs to a Canon imageRUNNER C7500 series behind a GX500 controller with page range functionality.

    By page range functionality, I mean we let the user print a subset of the submitted document total pages. For instance, print only pages 2, 3 and 4 from a document which is 10 pages long.

    Our application submits jobs through JMF + JDF queries. Weve already implemented working page range support for PDF documents using the JDF Pages attribute of the Runlist element which allows specifying a list of index of the pages specified in the LayoutElement

    For instance, The following JDF sample allows printing the first page of a multi-pages PDF job, resulting - as expected - in a single page job displayed in Command Workstation.

    HTML Code:
    <JDF  >
            <RunList  Pages="0">
                <LayoutElementRef rRef="IDLE" />
            <LayoutElement >
    My issue is that Ive observed that the Pages attribute seems to be ignored with PostScript jobs. Specifying the Runlist attribute Pages="0" in the JDF ticket of a PostScript multipage job wont result in a one-page job in Command Workstation. Actually, all job pages are part of the resulting job in that case.

    Is that an expected behavior? Do I need to take a whole different approach to support page range with PostScript files?

    Thank you for your help.

    Hi Antoine,

    Unfortunately this is a known limitation where page range is not supported with PS files.

    Best regards,
