Hi all,

Trying to get a job running on our Xerox Versant 2100 printer.

What i want is to be able to select different trays based on what the data file requires.

I have tried the following

TRAYID=6 PAPER=[A4] NAME=TRAY6
TRAYID=7 PAPER=[A4] NAME=TRAY7
TRAYID=8 PAPER=[A4] NAME=TRAY8
TRAYID=9 PAPER=[A4] NAME=TRAY9

And call each of these as i require (Shows in the PS under %%PageMedia: Tray6 etc)

However when on the printer, stock just gets pulled from the one tray.

Anybody used this function before, and could give some advice as to how to proceed?

Thank You.

Hey Saint Vipe,

Did you get an answer on this?

We use these commands to tray switch on the xerox printers we use.

TRAY "TRAYID=1 PAPER=[A4] NAME=PLAIN {WEIGHT=80 color=RED }"
TRAY "TRAYID=2 PAPER=[A4] NAME=PLAIN {WEIGHT=80 color=BLUE }"


from experience printers can be picky with casing on your tray calls/parameters too, so matching your script against the tray parameters on the printer itself.

Hi Michael,

Yep we got it working - Exactly how you have it in your example.

We have now another issue, trying to get it working on some Nuvera printers. These use Freeflow platform rather than the Fiery on the Versant printer.

I have found on another forum the following command

LITRTEC = "<</PageSize [595 842] /MediaColor (blue) >> setpagedevice\n"

However this still fails to pull as required, currently in touch with Xerox to see if it a printer setting that is incorrect or not.
